Fall Into Autumn Online event ON NOW! $50 Giveaway

Welcome to our "Fall Into Autumn" Online Event!  Over the next 4 days, we will be offering you some NEW & festive fall designs in wool & cotton.  We will also be sharing some of our FAV fall recipes, fall adventures & decorating ideas with each of you.  Let's get started!


Happy FALL!  

Here in Minnesota, we are blessed to experience all 4 seasons!  Of course FALL is my favorite!  I grew up amongst the oaks and the apple trees up North!  Oaks leaves and maple leaves are still my FAV leaves to date!  The maple leaves would change daily and they seemed to last the longest. 

Since we lived out in the country, we spent a lot of time outside & being creative.  I can't tell you how many leaves I collected, and pressed between the Montgomery Wards catalogs to dry.  Each one was so perfect, yet unique in shape & size.  I can still remember how crisp & fragile they became.  And the smell... there is nothing like fresh fallen leaves... oh, the joys of fall!

Since we had acreage, leaves were a plenty and raking was a weekly event!  It was usually Great Grandma Lily & I out raking her hard.  She would get the most leaves, in the smallest area.  We had so much fun and used some old fashioned rakes that were not the easiest to use!  However, it didn't stop us from making huge piles of leaves for the neighbor kids & I to jump in and out of!  It was so fun!  


My dad loved to plant and grow apple trees!  It was always so neat to see the fruit of his labor in the fall.  Now, with living in the cities, we have enjoyed going to our local area's apple orchards.  One of our favorite orchards is Aamodt's in Stillwater.  It is about a half hour away, is ranked the 3rd in the nation and is known for the best apple picking, hayrides & more.  It has been fun to go there over the years and create many fond memories with our daughters there.   

 Sicne we are talking about apples... I have a couple of apple recipes to share with you today!  The first one is simple, but tasty recipe.  It is Caramel Apple nachos!  I have served this at many parties.  I usually wait until the last minute to cut up the apples & dip them in lemon juice before I plate them. 
I hope you enjoy it!


My next recipe is just perfect for using all those delicious apples you've picked up at the farmer's market or apple orchard!  It is Cinnamon Apple Bread.  I like to use the cinnamon mixture from Pampered Chef!  It is my FAV!



Before I share some of our NEW & EXCITING fall designs & goodies with you... I thought I would share a few ideas that you could do with your pumpkins!  I LOVE pumpkins!  I love all the different varieties, colors & shapes they come in!  Mixing & matching is always fun!  Of course, adding a little bittersweet & a mum here of there never hurts!
