It seems like we have really savored this Autumn. In fact I know we have! It's been so beautiful and pleasant, and I was so over summer that any change was welcome. Cider, spices, pumpkins, color, coolness, coziness - I wish fall lasted 6 months of the year! And now Christmas is coming in just weeks. Goodness! Well, we're going to soak in these last sweet fall days as much as we can. I think Eva likes fall best too...

If you were to hike the woods behind our house, in less than a quarter mile you'd find that the woods suddenly end at a place we call "the clearing." We figure it's been maybe two years since the logging crew cleaned this area of the woods away. It's kinda eerie there among the tree carnage, but this summer many young shoots have covered the "forrest graveyard" with new life.
"Stuffing their pockets with multi-colored treasure, Mummzie and Chicken Nugget ran home to get autumnally crafty."
Mummzie's technicolor puffin! (for her Mummzie with love)
It was hard for the younger artist to focus when the older artist was giggling with glee at her own creations.
This singing octopus was Eva's triumph.
We opted not to mail any of our fabulous creations because of how fragile many of the leaves were. So hopefully you all can enjoy them here in a pretty and preserved state.
And now we "leaf" you with a little rump... because it's just so cute.
