Fall is officially here and full of colorful scenery, fun and fright–filled festivals.
Nothing is more beautiful than the vibrant red, orange, yellow and green colors of fall—my favorite season of the year. It evokes memories of my childhood on the farm: building forts made of leaves, picking apples from the orchard, and watching kites blow in the wind.
Oktoberfest is my favorite seasonal celebration of food, with all the sauerkraut, sausages, potato salads, fruit salads, pies strudels, and nuts from the walnut and pecan trees growing in our orchards.
And lets not forget Halloween, with all the witches, pumpkins, black cats, bats, skeletons, ghosts and other spooky decorations adorning homes and store windows everywhere. Plenty of creepy and cute costumes and accessories are sold online and in specialty stores this time of year. For those who love to make their own costumes, there are patterns and fabrics to help you create the perfect outfit.
Stop by my Etsy store for some special gifts and supplies to make this a great time of year.
Happy Halloween from my three fur babies in their special costumes. Sadie (middle) is with us now only in spirit.
To all the children and young at heart who will trick-or-treat this year: have a safe and fun holiday. And be sure to save room for dessert!
See you next month!
