I am absolutely in love with Autumn. The cooler weather, changing leaves, and my favorite holiday, Halloween, make this my favorite time of year. The kids and I get really into decorating the house. We make spooky pumpkin lanterns, hang paper bats, and bake every different pumpkin flavored treat. I've always had a love of the macabre, so it's the perfect excuse to hang up glitter skeletons and break out the cardboard Dracula theater. Of course, this also meant an excuse to take photos at a cemetery!
I unearthed this 1950s, hand-painted skirt with an acorn and fall leaf pattern at a thrift store. I immediately started a search for some sort of acorn themed brooch. I ended up finding this 40s celluloid dangle brooch, with branches, leaves, and actual acorns. The green sweater is one of my favorite pieces. My mother-in-law knitted it for my birthday from a 1951 pattern. It's my favorite shade of green, and made from the softest yarn.
