Autumn is finally here. For five years our autumn mornings where filled with the sounds of a busy little city. Autumn at the cottage has been different in so many ways, and honestly living in a city is so much fun, but watching shades of green turn into warm yellows and reds everyday is kind of my favorite.
You already know I look forward to autumn every year, so you can imagine my excitement. I’ve baked cookies that taste and smell like autumn, enjoyed a small crackling fire and opened most of the windows (despite the cold) to listen to the rain drip drop on the cottage roof. It really has been a magical week—the perfect way to say hello to autumn. Oh and my hats are officially out of storage *hands in the air*
If you follow me on instagram, you’ve seen a few of these photo’s. Even though I love instagram, blog posts tell the story much better. I think an Apple family update is way over due. Here’s a few things we’ve been up to:
Crocheting of course. I’m planning to share my experience crocheting the pin wheel pillow above in a future post. I only remembered to take a few photo’s, but I would like to share the pattern and a few hints I wish I knew before I got started! It looks more complicated to crochet than it is. It’s really quick and easy, the perfect project to get rid of extra yarn.
I still haven’t painted the dinning room. After painting the hutch, I haven’t been in the mood to paint, ha! That needs to change ;)
Currently, our coffee grinder is filled with the Starbucks Anniversary Blend. Have you tried it? It’s my favorite right now. Also, I’m a little obsessed with Earl Grey Creme + Lavender tea. Recipe to follow soon!
Stephen hung these white shelves for me a few weeks ago. Aren’t they great? They are from Ikea.
Stephen and I planted pumpkins
a little very late. They grew huge leaves and long vines, but that’s all—no pumpkins! I think we’re both hooked though, it’s personal since this year didn’t work out. The experience was good, I know more about pumpkins, than I did before we planted them. Here’s to next year :)
