I really want to wear this brooch from Crafty Folk on my Fall coat today with my cream cable knit scarf and my caramel leather riding boots. Today is the perfect Fall day here -- a blue sky, puffy white clouds and lots of crisp air. As I was walking to the bakery earlier, I could smell wood burning from what I imagined to be, a cozy little stove in a nearby home, and with the crunch of the leaves beneath my shoes, I realized Autumn had officially arrived.
I'm off now -- not to work on some important project or anything -- but to go to the park across the street to collect some chestnuts and acorns to display on my sofa table, a simple but very nice touch that just makes things feel right at home... And then I'm off to have cake and coffee at a friends house because well... it's that time of day when I must honor this German tradition! :) Later on, I'll be back to work on some projects and of course, I'll be meeting you back here with Leslie's Color Me Pretty post - you won't want to miss it because it's absolutely stunning!
