fall is almost here

The arrival of fall is the most incredible time of the year to me.  
I love the colors, the golden light, the smells, 
the sound of rustling leaves and falling acorns in the yard.  
I told a story on instagram the other day about my mama.  
She says that when I was a little girl, 
I had nature collections hidden throughout the house.  
I still love to go outside and collect beauty…
some pretty acorns and leaves from the backyard.
Fall smells are pretty awesome, too!
The smell of this pear Dutch Baby was pretty divine.  
Love using pears.  
One of my favorite fruits. Pretty and Yummy!
Happy (almost) fall, y'all!

purple and green and pink

The garden really shows out this time of the year.  
All that purple and green and pink has me kinda crazy for color!
My camera is in hand, like always.

baking with bananas

I bake banana bread all.the.time.
It's a staple in our house, and seriously, there's nothing like the smell of freshly baked bread!
Found this vintage cookbook at the flea market a few days ago.  
I have a more modern version, but this one is just so nostalgic.
Old is almost always better isn't it?
Anyhoo…I used the recipe out of here and we gobbled it up right away.
Still bringing those pretty zinnias inside, too:)
Happy Baking Day, friends!

apple season

The apples have arrived!  I can't wait to go pick my own, but I bought these and they sure are great colors!  And they look reallllllly cute with my newly thrifted recipe box:)
