Autumn Happiness

Kathryn's birthday is today & these were her presents:
Squirrel & Pinecone
Vintage Salt & Pepper Shakers
(She collects shakers)
Acorn Earrings
Acorn Earrings
(I might have to make myself a pair of these, too!)
I suppose you can tell I'm in a Autumn-y mood...
Here's my Thanksgiving tree:
Thanksgiving Tree
I actually put it out in September, sans turkey ornaments, but the Halloween tree goes up in between...)
The Porch:
Fall Planting
I have a thing for acorns.
I also must add how very happy I am... I'm so proud of our country today- there will be so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving! Huzzah! <Picture me doing the Snoopy dance>
It is a bittersweet victory, though... I'm proud of the US, but disappointed by my love, California. Prop 8, people? Really? I suppose we're made huge strides lately towards erasing bigotry, but it looks like we've got a lot more work to do, and soon.

Oh, what lovely those earrings are! This is now I wished I had pierced ears. But you should defenitly (spelling?) make a pair to yourself! Those are gorgeous! :D

Those earings are gorgeous! And I love that so many holidays get a tree in your house :)

I agree... prop 8 definitely surprised me. what a shame.

I'll agree--acorns are the cuuuuuuuuutest of Nature's little trinkets! And speaking of cute, those shakers kill me.

Did you ever see that huge hollow chocolate acorn filled with tiny chocolate squirrels? I'll smash it if I ever see one again.
