Thoughts of Fall

I can't believe that it's fall already! With the weather we've had here last week, it definitely still feels like summer. Yesterday was the first day of temps below 80 degrees, so yesterday it really did feel like the start of fall. This week, though, the heat's back up, and it will be mid-90s again by Wednesday, so they say. But fall it is. What do you think of when you think of fall? I think of colored leaves, pumpkins, different kinds of squash, a trip to the local pumpkin patch, and Halloween time fun.

Here are a few pictures of the pumpkins we have so far - one big one and one small one.

Here's the big one:And the smaller one:
I like the smaller ones better.
Plus, they're easier to carve when it's time to do the carving!


So how about you? What do you think of when you think of fall?

Fab Finds for Friday 9/16/11

Today I will share some of the most fabulous fudge on Etsy. I am a repeat customer to this wonderful shop, and the owner is a dear friend of mine since we began our Etsy adventure. Get ready for mouthwatering fudge fabulous finds for Friday from Pernilla's Something Swedish on Etsy!!!

Peach Melba Fudge

Happy Autumn Fudge

Nutella Marble Fudge

Peppermint Brittle Fudge

These are only some of the fudges that Pennie offers in her shop (the ones I really want to try soon). There are so many more! Plus, there are so many more goodies...I'm talkin' cookies, chocolates (well, those will be back in season soon, and they are worth waiting for, by the way), soy free...And there's a sugar free section, gluten free section...You have GOT to go and check out her shop!!! I've ordered cookies...They were melt-in-your-mouth good (Pennie's Gourmet Dreams and Swedish Farmer Cookies)...Yummmm...My mouth is watering thinking about how good they were! And if you don't want something sweet, she's got lovely jewelries, and much, MUCH more (the gnomes are way cute)!

I hope you enjoyed today's Fab Finds for Friday as much as I did while writing this post. =) Until next time...

Dog-Sitting a Cutie

So this weekend we dog-sat for a cute little puppy named Cinnamon, among other things with our super-busy weekend. Take a look.
She's so tiny, and all the kids just fell in love with her. But we had to give her back, of course. Now they're wanting a pup of their own, because Cinnamon has brothers and sisters still without homes. I don't know...

Etsy Friends Remember 9/11

I was going to create an Etsy treasury in remembrance of 9/11/01, but when I signed in to Etsy this morning, I found this wonderful tribute made by earjeans, a friend from team HHU (one of the first teams on Etsy that welcomed me with friendship). I hope you enjoy looking.


As we remember this day, I think about what I was doing at the time. It was early out here on the west coast. I was getting ready for school, and the TV was on, but I wasn't paying any attention. Then, just before leaving, I glanced over and saw the towers and all the smoke...Silence. And the rest of the day was just a crazy blur.

After posting this, I went to visit team Blogging Buddies and found great posts remembering this day 10 years ago. If you have time, take a look:

And here, another great treasury by a teammate from the Promo Frenzy Team of Etsy, SymbolicImports.


Now a couple of beautiful treasury collections from the BNRBabes team! The first one is by sarahjhanifan.


And this one is made by TheEclecticSlide. I couldn't NOT add these to this post!

We Have a Crawler!

Our baby girl is a crawler now! She had been scooting backwards for awhile, but now she really crawls. =) I had purchased some baby leg warmers, because I knew they would come in handy once she started crawling all over the place. They're pretty cute!
Here's the thing, though, she's got some chubby legs. The leg warmers fit, but the top seems just a bit too tight. So I'm wondering if there are leg warmers out there for the chubby legs? Most of the leg warmers that I've found on Etsy seem to be the one-size-fits-all type. Do you think there's someone out there willing to customize for me?

If any of you have suggestions, please leave a comment! And if you happen to have a link you could provide, please do. =) Thanks for your help.

Last Sunflower


We had one more surprise sunflower this season, and it was a late bloomer. Isn't it pretty?
