Bundles Of...


Well, Fall has finally arrived and although the days are hot, the nights are nice and cool and I dont mind the warmer then usual temperatures. The trees have a slight auburn color which is slowly covering each tree with the brilliant palette of fall. I must apologize for my two week vacation from blogland. I did have things to show you (yeah, yeah, how many times has she said that?) I really did, but I have just been soooo busy. Busy with all sorts of things, especially work. Ughhh, anyways I have been waiting to post up my new blog header, made by myself for this fall season. I finally got Photoshop Elements, so I was able to start doodling in digi scrapbooking. Remember, I'm a newbie at this, so dont expect too much ;)
I have been soo excited lately for Fall, all of the events that happen, the hayrides, and mazes, as well as the trips to buy pumpkins, mums and gourds at the farm. I pass by my local farm stand every morning, and I just love it as the sun is rising and the ghostlike fog is still hovering over the remaining sunflowers and zinnias. I also drive by slow everyday, and even at seven o'clock in the morning, the workers are out their loading those beautiful cinderella pumpkins and the new halloween decorations. I'm tellin ya' these people probably think I'm crazy since I slow down to see what new items they are loading. Over the weekend they began to lay out the pumpkins for selection, and the rows and rows of soon blooming mums are waiting to be transplanted. Today I thought I would show you some books I found at the thrift store, from 1867 (top) to 1951 (bottom) these books along with their colors fit perfectly with the colors in my room. And of course I had to show you a collection of the ever-growing October magazine issues which offer tons of Fall inspiration. That reminds me, tomorrow I have to take out the fall decorations and start getting this place cozied up. Goodbye pastels and hello burnt orange and cranberry! I promise I will share some sneak previews of my Halloween Hat swap project that I am working on, I'll post them this week! Okay, well thats all for now, wishing you crisp fall mornings, and a tasty orchard fresh apple!

ps: How much do you enjoy fall?

Love your books!! The colours will look great for your fall decor. Your banner looks great too! My favourite farm store has just brought out their fall stuff and I can't WAIT to get over there and take a look. Nice magazine collection! ~ hugs, Lynda ♥

I just love the books. Will you read them? Or are they really just decoration? :<) There's just something about a book with no cover and just a title that warms my heart and makes me want to own it. I don't have many but I do love them.

This is quite the lovely post! I adore fall. It is my favorite season, and October is my favorite month of the year. It's a wonderful combination of books you have there, and their vintage look is perfect for an autumn post, isn't it.
Great job on your new banner! I use Paint Shop Pro for making mine, and have lots of fun with that.

Great book finds. I just love the covers of old books. I am also a fall person. It's my favourite time of the year. We are still getting hot weather, but the trees are starting to turn and they are lovely.
I also like your new header
