This year the color of the Maple leaves in Vermont is really beautiful. There are lots of reds, oranges and yellows. October in the southern part of the state is when the peak of color usually occurs. This year the leaves turned color early.
I love going to Michaels Crafts store this time of year. The above photo is a photo that I took in Michaels store about a week ago. I wanted to buy the mug, the napkins and the cute little coaster with a pumpkin and sunflower with Fall leaves on it. I have some Fall napkins at home and a similar mug so I just bought the adorable coaster. It looks nice on my Fall theme dining room table.
The above photo was taken near the Canadian border in Vermont. It’s actually looking toward Canada. So pretty this time of year.
I saw a neat pattern for two kinds of protective face masks that was a free download. So easy to make and you can be so creative with all kinds of fabric. I linked the website on my sewing board on my Pinterest.
I like the above material fabric idea. But it’s fun to get creative.
Joann’s Fabrics has all kinds of ideas for creating fun protective masks.
I saw the above Happy Planner book club planner at Hobby Lobby and it was 50% off. I hesitated to buy it and was going to wait a week and then buy it. But I bought the matching sticker book that was also half price. Well the next week that planner was gone. But I found one at Michaels Crafts for 20% off and I just love it.
I have a lot of Happy Planner stuff and I saw the above idea for a storage cart. Ikea is out of the turquoise cart but they had a cart in white. I found a turquoise cart on line for only $29.00 and I even found those little pails to clip on it at Amazon. It’s really neat because it keeps everything organized and you can wheel it to your desk when you want to work on a planner and everything is at your fingertips.
The above is the sticker book that goes with the Bookclub planner. I even found the exact sheet paper that you can add to the planner and I love the format idea.
It’s soup weather and there are so many ideas for using Fall veggies that are easy to find at local farm-stands. I pinned a lot of soup recipes on my Soup recipe board on my Pinterest.
Pumpkin Whoopie Pies are a nice treat for this time of year. Especially good with a maple filling. I pinned several Pumpkin Whoopie Pie recipe ideas on my Fall Ideas board on my Pinterest.
I also like the idea of individual Cheeseboards. I like Baby Belle little cheeses to add to it. I have seen the Baby Belle in the grocery store and wondered if they were good. They are really good. A little expensive for me anyways but worth it.
Then I love dark chocolate and I saw the above idea on Pinterest for a neat chocolate, nut and fruit board.
