Isn’t Fall the best…

A ocllection of fall pumpkins and leaves

Fall decorating, crafts and

recipes are the best.  It’s getting

colder outside, the leaves are falling,

and we begin to prepare for the colder

months and getting ready for the holidays.

Nature becomes beautiful with all the colors, the air becomes crisp, the breeze starts to blow and the leaves are now falling to the ground.

Don’t get me wrong…..I LOVE SUMMER, it’s great.  But there is something really special about fall.

Now that Halloween is over our thoughts migrate to Thanksgiving, being with family and/or friends, favorite traditions and family favorite recipes.

Jamie’s Tree

 

When our daughter Jamie was born and growing up…..I decided that each year I would give her an ornament dated for that year.

When she got older and left our nest, got married or whatever pathway she chose to take in life…                                                   she would have a collection of ornaments to take with her.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   I searched stores and craft shows                                                     all the time for handmade, meaningful ornaments.
