autumn

i absolutely love going to kruger’s farm on sauvie island. we often go in the summer months to wander about, pick (and eat) berries and languish under the giant old oak tree.

our annual trip in the fall to the pumpkin patch has become a tradition our entire family looks forward to. this year was coco’s first time. we rode the hayride out to the patch, picked out our favorite pumpkins, explored the giant corn maze, ate homemade corn dogs, wood fired pizza, roasted ears of corn and delicious caramel apples! micah and i enjoyed some pints by captured by porches too. we were ready for a thunderstorm at any moment, but it waited until later that night. all in all, it was a perfect family day, complete with wild flowers, live bluegrass and sunshine!

yoga for frankie

last week was really crazy for me and i missed out on the kcwc (kids clothes week challenge).  my friend jen (bits of envy) really went to town and made her daughter, violet, a lovely new fall wardrobe.  i decided that i could jump on board a week late!  i found some really fabulous pdf patterns on etsy by heidi & finn.  i started with the yoga pants / hooded jacket.  i had found a patty young polka dot remnant (flora & fauna) for $3 last year and i combined it with another patty young knit (sanctuary) i scored for 50% off at fabric depot. here is everything all cut out.

here is frankie in her new yoga outfit.

trying out a few poses…

also works great for the playground!

fall is here

i’ve been a bit down lately and it was wonderful to see a post by my dear friend jen (check out her amazing & effortless creativity at bits of envy) that completely inspired me to stop being sad & embrace fall!  first, i made leaves out of brown paper bags & different lace.  i glued the lace to the bags and then used a template to cut them out.

i used three different styles & colors of lace.  i really like the combinations of textures.

next, i made flowers out of burlap, fabric scraps, vintage buttons & broken vintage earrings…and glued it all together.

here it is, hanging on the front door.

then i decided to make a table runner out of the remaining burlap.  i used the rest of the lace leaves and vintage mason jars.  the lids made perfect candle holders.  now i am off to help a friend paint & hopefully find the perfect branches to put in the jars!  thank you jen!
