Leaves Are Falling

My youngest loves to collect leaves. On his travels, if he sees a leaf that he likes, he will give it to me to bring home. I remember as a young girl I would put a leaf between wax paper and place it within the pages of a heavy encyclopedia. With time, the moisture would evaporate from the leaf and the leaf would become somewhat skeletal. It was really neat.

Leaves are pretty cool with their different shapes, sizes and colors. Living on the west coast, they don't really make a dramatic display of color change like they do on the east coast. But nonetheless, leaves are pretty and the falling of the leaves indicate that Fall is in full swing and that Winter will soon be here.

One day, I used my iPhone camera to to take a few pictures of some leaves that I found while on a walk.

I also had to take a pictures of a couple of flowers (even if one of them was a weed), saying, "Hey, we're not ready to hibernate yet, it's still summer time!" :)

Yah, I wish that we could go from Fall into Spring and bypass Winter altogether. Although, my kids are hoping for some snow this year (it is kinda fun making a snowman). But me, well, I wish I lived in Southern California or maybe Arizona.

Friday Etsy Favorites

I love pine cones. I love to collect them in the Fall and put them in the pots that are on my front porch. I love to purchase scented pine cones and decorate the inside of our house at Christmas time.

This year I want to make some pine cone ornaments to hang on our Christmas tree and make a pine cone garland to hang along our fireplace. I also want to experiment with spray painting pine cones. Some in silver, some in gold, and some in white. I think adding some gold glitter to the tips would look pretty too.

The following are some pine cone inspired Etsy finds. I love these!

November Photo A Day - Part 1

I have really enjoyed the November Photo a Day challenge hosted by Fat Mum Slim so far. It has been encouraging me to improve my photography and to think outside of the box. Sometimes it is challenging to think up an idea for that day and sometimes I will think of more than one and have to choose my favorite.

At the end November I am going to compile a 12x12 scrapbook page of all my photos and include them in my Project Life album.

You can follow me on Instagram to see my daily photos. I will also be sharing photos each day on my mateo & tobias Facebook page.

These are the photos from the first six days of the challenge.

01. fruit
