monday meet and greet, an Autumn Party

Good morning! I hope every one had a fantastic weekend!  Mine was kicked off with my weekly estate sale-ing/thrifting adventure with Bianca.  We stumbled upon an estate sale on our way to Matilda's Mouse.  I scored some great finds - an old wire basket and some old fashioned Ball mason jars that will be perfect for storing knick-knacks or tea lights for the patio.  Speaking of Ball jars, I also tagged along with Bianca and Grace to a fantastic store opening for Bixby and Ball in Solana Beach.  It was a super fun night with champagne, treats, and beautiful objects and trinkets in an even more beautiful setting.  I can't wait to do some more shopping there for upcoming projects...

Fall is here and I am looking forward to the get-togethers with friends and family during all the upcoming holidays.  And in the spirit of Autumn gatherings, feel free to say hi and leave a link to your blog below so that we can come hang out at your place for a bit.  Also, tell us, what are some of your favorite ways to welcome Fall? Is it a seasonal recipe, a unique tradition?

Next week's meet and greet will be all about celebrating an inspired life and discovering how some of my favorite people do just that.  I can't wait to chat with one of my favorite blog friends and sharing her thoughts on the topic with you.

Talk soon!

Happy Monday!!

I love Fall and really miss the sound of crunching leaves and that cool, crisp air. Living in AZ, we get cooler temps at this time of year, but it just doesn't *feel* like Fall.. Soooo...I make as many pumpkin things as I can, light pumpkin candles, trips to the pumpkin patch...those sorts of things. :)

I love fall and want to break out my boots! But we are spoiled with sun and warm temps...so I will just have to eat pumkin...decorate, and if it gets any hotter I will have to crank up my AC and pretend :)

Fall is my favorite time of year, it feels like more of a new/fresh beginning than new years. Sadly I have no tradition, other than sprinkling our dining room table with a couple of pumpkins, some candles, and maybe a leaf or two.

A trip to Tom's Farms to get pumpkins ~ lots of cooking and baking ~ moodier-than-usual music (loved your songs on Ana's mix btw)~ Kir Royales ~ Mulled Cider ~ Lots of decorations and candles ~ and a new-to-us tradition- apple picking!
