Finally fall is here with it’s warm, comfortable days, cool mornings and evenings. I can really start focusing on getting some diys, crafting done, along with trying new recipes. My list is full bursting at the seams with projects that a hot summer denied me. Fall is my favorite time of year! Blue jeans, light sweaters, crafting, sewing and baking. Today I’d thought I’d share a Behind the Blog post about all things fall that caught my eye that fits with all my loves.

I just finished little Audrey’s Halloween costume. She’s going to be Mary from Little House on the  Prairie. I sewed up the costume from a vintage pattern. I can’t wait to edit the photos and share them really soon!

It’s about a two day project. I did alter a few things and will share that later but, if your looking for a Halloween pattern I used this Little House on the Pairie Costume Pattern

Here is my om age to fall with all it’s colorful givings and glory.

Back to School banner

Remember the post where I created and shared the mini back to school notebook / journals ? Well I created this little back to school banner with my Cricut Explore and had sent it to Audrey. I meant to share it sooner. Now I’m ready to make some things with pumpkins, the cupcake toppers I spotted or maybe Thanksgiving projects. Just a quick pic of Sammie holding it for me. I know you usually say reading and writing, but this was more of a play on words,  right back to school. In the banner it starts with an apple, apple cut out and then the middle three shown here. I added all the mini journals, some school supplies and the banner and sent them via snail mail to the grand kids.

I can’t believe we’ve had hot weather up until now! Finally we are back down to the low 80’s or low 75* Which means it’s time to gather up and try some baking recipes I’ve pinned! The last goodie I baked was this Apple Cake recipe. Finally leaves are turning colors and falling. Below I captured this leaf falling and created a gif from a few of the photos.

What do you love about fall? What is your favorite time of year?
