I love fall! Oh, I know it isn't here yet, but it is coming and that makes me happy. I love the colors and smells and memories of fall. I met and starting dating my husband in the fall. Our first date was a church hayride. My dad knowing how excited I was for this first date and probably thinking that this guy was the one, bought me a brand new white coat with a white fur collar. It was so pretty and very white. Well, it rained on the hayride and we all threw lots of hay on the hayride and my new coat was completely ruined. I mean, never worn again, ruined and my dad never said a word. My first baby was born in the fall. A beautiful, sweet little girl that changed my life forever and made me realize my highest calling was to be a good mother. We go to apple butter festivals and harvest festivals, pick apples and make apple pie. We go all out for Halloween and have our annual Morris family party. We are busy every weekend and actually slow down at Christmas time. This fall will be really fun with the addition of Bella and a family vacation with Kelly and her family to Florida the second week of October. Fun, fun!!!!
Every once in awhile I get in the mood to make ceramics and usually make holiday decorations. I thought I would put pictures of a few up occasionally.
This is one of my favorite fall decorations, a hay stalk candy dish surrounded by pumpkins. It is also one of the hardest things I have made. The inside is glazed black.
I love this little squirrel nut box. His name is Charlie. I have fallen in love with acorns lately, and started a small collection. Here is my mantle with my acorns and other decorations.
Have a happy Labor Day weekend everyone!!!
