Autumn is in the air...

We've had some chilly nights an frosty mornings lately here in Wisconsin. I love the changing seasons... it's what makes the Midwest "all that" and then some. Autumn is particularly inspiring to me. We had friends over last Friday night for an Autumnal meal ~ portabella mushroom tarts, french bread topped with baked tomatoes and melted chevre, balsamic marinated flank steak and spinach salad with dried cranberries and apple ~ yummy! All this with good red wine and an apple pie for dessert. These flowers are left from the evening - loved them in the morning sun.

These felted wool rose brooches are my favorite way to recycle worn out sweaters. I pulled out this project over the weekend while we watched the Badgers get stomped on... At least I had something to show when the game was over!

How does Fall inspire you?
