Autumn in Saratoga

This holiday weekend was absolutely beautiful. The leaves are just about to change colors – later than previous years, I believe it is due to all of the rain we had during the last few months.

The leaves may not be this color yet, however the photograph below is one of my favorites fall images from our farm a few years back. It captures the perfect Autumn day!

Show off your creepy side this Halloween!

Below are just a few spooky ideas I have created over the past few years, including Franken Jars, spell books, primitive pipe cleaner candy canes and trees along with decorative displays of bones and skulls.

My vintage mason jar inventory is massive and I'm always thinking of different ways in using them. By adding rusty keys, tea stained tags and rubber rats, they transform into Franken Jars. Even vintage biscuit cutters are used for lids!
