  1. Beautiful! The owl is darling. It's so much cooler here and really feels like autumn. Now I just need to get some pumpkins and mums (mine all died during the hottest summer I can ever remember).

    Thanks for sharing these great finds!

    1. It's been so hot this summer that I've been in the the "Autumn state of mind" for two months already and my baking has reflected it. Pumpkin and cinnamon have been wafting through the house. But most important is the longing for COOLER weather!

      I'm sorry to hear about your mums; I hate when plants die.

      Glad you like the pretties :)

  2. Hey, those earrings look familiar! (Thanks.) But they--and these other lovely Etsy finds--look a whole lot more colorful than the brown leaves on my poor star magnolia, which "bit the dust" before the cooler fall weather arrived.... Hope we're all inspired by these precursors to cooler weather.

    1. I had to include your earrings; they're so perfectly autumnal :)

      Sorry to hear about your magnolia. My poor tomato plants didn't have a chance. Between the extreme heat and torrential rains, they went through cycles of bolting and withering and never really produced anything other than some sad little golf balls!

      Just the thought of autumn colors and the promise of cooler weather have my creative juices flowing and I wish the same for everyone!

  3. The earrings are lovely! Fall is right around the corner here, calling for the first frost tonight.

    1. I'm so jealous! It's currently 74° and tonight's low is expected to be around 63°. That's a big drop in temp. for our low and I'm definitely going to enjoy it. But, tomorrow's high is forecast to reach 86°. I'm so sick of the heat!

  4. Sorry to hear the tomatoes became sauce before they left the vine. (And no Captcha! YAY.)

    1. Thanks for the good laugh!

      Oh, and I turned it off just for *you* :)
