September is finally here, school is in full swing and it is about time for some fall love. Make sure you go over and enjoy the Fall Nesting Week Party over at The Inspired Room this week. Vic and I hope to participate at some point. From the few blogs I've seen so far, I'm definitely inspired.

I found this "something" at Goodwill recently. Not sure what to call it. I need to find a place for it and something to go inside.

Chloe and I started this wreath today. These white tipped pine cones came from my Uncle and Aunt's cabin on Lake Rabun, in Clayton, GA. We have enjoyed going there for the past so many years. Swimming in the lake in the summer, or cuddling up and feeding the wood stove in the fall was always such fun. They are selling their cabin, and I told the kids today that we will have this pine cone wreath to remind us of the good times there. I had never seen the white tipped pine cones until we started going there. They almost look snow-tipped.

We also found a hand-full of these tiny pine cones during a hike to a waterfall near the cabin last fall.

On a walk last week Chloe picked up these interesting acorns. She is my nature girl. As soon as I saw them I knew they were going into her pocket. We also saw a persimmon tree loaded with small fruits. So, even with the 85 to 90 degree days, fall is slowly making an apperance. I, for one, welcome it with open arms.

Interesting, I have never seen white tipped pinecones. They do look like snow tipped, don't they?

I need some of those acorns for an idea that I have and some of those acorn things. I may have to take a nature walk myself to help with a little fall decorating. Can't wait to see your ideas. Jackie

Oh, I forgot. On your little cone thing that you found how about adding some pretty fall ribbon to hang it with, a few fall berries, and a few feathers. Just an idea. Jackie
