First Day of Fall // Upcoming Crafts Fair

It is the first day of fall! How crazy is that? It seems like summer was ripped from our grasps at the very end. It was very sad, but I’ve brushed myself off and facing this fall season with open arms! Fall is probably one of my favorite seasons, as I’ve mentioned many times before. I’m so excited for what is to come for the remainder of the year!

For those in the Danbury, CT area should come and see me Sunday, October 2nd! I am taking part in a craft fair for the grand opening of a new shop in Brookfield, CT called ‘Somewhere in Time’. It is *the* cutest shop, I love it! If you are a big Etsy fan, or just someone who loves handmade, then this place is for you. You’ll find such an array of goods from jewelry, to soaps, to garden items, to items for your favorite pooch!

I would absolutely love it if you came down to say hello and see what this great shop has to offer. It’ll be a great time and would be a fantastic way to kick off the fall season! In the mean time, check out their Facebook fanpage and you can see some of the great local artisans who are taking part in this craft fair and also see more of what this shop has to offer.

::Crossroads of Seasons::

I feel like I’m at a crossroads right now. I don’t want summer to end, but at the same time, I can’t wait for fall to begin. There’s nothing I love better than fall here in New England. The leaves are beautiful, the crisp air and smell of spices.

 

 

How can you not love it here? I had to move away from the North East once, and I don’t think I could do it again. I know people complain about the winter here, but honestly, it could be worse. Having the four seasons like this is perfect for me, and how I want it to always be. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. ;)

 

 

I am so ready for carving pumpkins this year. They’re going to be awesome, like the ones above possibly? Or maybe I’ll do another rendition of my Jack Skellington ones from two years ago, but in white like the ones pictured below?

 

 

What is your favorite jack o’ lantern design? Do you like to do something simple like a monogram, maybe create a crazy design, or do you prefer the more traditional toothy grin? Share your favorite design! :)
