Fall is in the Air


There  is a chill in the air this weekend saying Fall has arrived. 
Soon the trees will be putting on their autumn garb. 
One lone maple tree in the local park has all ready donned her blaze of orange welcoming in the change of seasons. 
I love when the leaves fall, I love to kick my feet through them as I walk, enjoying the colors the most amazing golds, oranges and reds. 

I have created lovely leaves that can be enjoyed all year. A variety of fall leaf hair clips that I will be selling at the Florissant Old Town Fall Festival on October 12th. Do stop by and say hello. I would be so glad to see you there.




These fun hair clips are made using the Big shot (113439)  the Autumn accents bigz die (127812) and felt and fabric. Everything is hot glued together and ready to wear, so easy.

Lovely Blogs

I just stumbled up on a lovely blog full of wonderful wool crafted items. As you get to know me you will find that along with paper crafts I also have a love of wool and fiber. 

So now I would like to share with you some of my favorite blogs. Some are craft oriented others are home decor inspiration and others are just fun. I hope you enjoy visiting them as much as I do.

A Taste of History

I just discovered this show, it looks like it has been on for awhile. DVD's for 5 seasons are available. It so interesting to watch the way he cooks. Chef Staib uses actual 18th century recipes and give details of history as he cooks. All of the dishes are cooked exactly the way they would have been in the 18th century. Dutch ovens, spiders, and caldrons are used with an open fire in a large walkin fireplace. I have always wanted to have a colonial fireplace that I could use to cook in. I started subscribing to the Early American Life magazine in 1976 during the bicentenial and especially liked the issues that covered using a colonial fireplace. 

To find out more about Chef Staib and the show check out the links below.
