garden gifts ...

come sit a spell  & enjoy this beautiful Autumn weather...
painted this scarecrow many, many years ago on a scrap piece of wood my husband had in his workshop ...
he comes out of storage & takes his place on  the front porch every October :-)
the leaves are changing colour
and covering our front lawn with a blanket of red, gold, and green...
I've been turning them into leaf bouquets for the house ♥
and re-purposing an old orange cardigan ...
it will now live as boot toppers, hand-warmers,  pumpkins & tiny owls ...
my favourite October bookmark
is a simple leaf
from our Maple...
I will leave them inside books
to press
 ♥
Since we Celebrate Thanksgiving October 14th here in Canada, I thought I'd leave the link to last years post that has tutorials on how I create "jack~be~little~pumpkins" &  "gathering cutlery pouches" to pretty up your Thanksgiving table.  Both super quick & easy to make.

I am so jealous that beautiful Autumn is visiting you so brilliantly. Here it is green all over and a high of 91 degrees today. Wah!
Hugs,
