Welcome Fall

I've had an odd compulsion to pick up acorns this fall. I can't explain it, but when I see them on the ground I have to fill my pockets. It's odd, I know...

I don't really have much in the way of fall decorations, except for a wreath I get out after Halloween, but I thought the house needed something to celebrate these early days of fall. All those acorns came in handy; a few of them worked perfectly to spruce up the lonely candle atop my dining room table.

What a pretty picture. I love acorns too. We don't have any out in farm country. I planted a few oak trees 3 years ago. I don't have acorns yet.

Oh, Liz, you're missing out with Fall decorations! They are perhaps my favorite decorations of the year. I will be sure to post some pictures to share with you. Perhaps some pumpkins and gourds for your dining table?

I love the sight of acorns. So sweet and so fall. I haven't found any yet but hope to soon. We have so many evergreens around that it is hard to find trees that leave gifts other than pine cones.

It’s not odd, I have the same graving... It always reminds me of the herbarium we made at school when I was a very little girl. We walked though the forests searching for coloured leaves and flowers and then dried them between heavy books.
I love Fall!
