We have these large oak trees in our front yard. They have been busy dropping acorns like crazy and I've been out in our yard picking them up like crazy. The key seems to get to them before the caps fall off or the squirrels partake.
I have filled this little bowl to the brim. I seem to have developed a strange obsession with acorns.
I love old barns too! Some have more character than others but I really like this one that is just down the road from us.
There is this wonderful pumpkin patch down the road from us too. They are only open on the weekends but I just love their wagon display. If this doesn't say Autumn, then I don't know what does.
I found two large pine-cone candle sticks at GW the other day. They were marked .99 a piece!
I need to get busy and make some kind of vignette.
And another awesome GW find. I had been wanting a picnic basket but I didn't want to pay retail. Only $6.00 for this baby and in great condition. I am going to use it in our guest room to hold towels, soap, lotions etc.
So there you have it! I am trying to keep busy but this baby wait is driving me crazy!
I am joining Leigh for Thrifty Thursday, be sure to check out her fun blog!
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
