There are certain times of year when I discover special and unique seasonal finds at the market and Farmer's Market . . . and Fall is my favorite time of year for discovering seasonal treasures.
I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite finds (crushes) over the last few weeks . . .
. . . . . . . . .
canned Organic Pumpkin has arrived!
woven jute placemats
orange and burnt orange paper straws
long stem freckled pumpkins
Have you ever tried a casaba melon? Oh my heavens, they're delicious . . . juicy . . . and oh so sweet!
I spotted them at the Farmer's Market . . . and thought that their skin was quite unique.
It wasn't until I sampled a piece that I couldn't buy one fast enough. That's what's so neat about Farmer's Markets . . . FREE samples of fruits, vegetables, and cookies/pastries and honey!
There's something so incredibly charming about long stems on pumpkins. Their long, twisted, gnarled stems give them so much character . . . and I love that they look like you just picked them from a pumpkin patch.
Have you ever seen burnt orange lilies?
They're breath-taking, especially when the sun shines on them.
I buy lots of sunflowers this time of year, but when I saw these . . . I was captivated by them.
I brought them home and paired them with a large bowl of long-stem freckled pumpkins.
Perhaps one of my favorite seasonal finds so far are these braided jute placemats.
I'm a big fan of jute. In fact, all the rugs and carpet runners in our home are made of jute. I think it's natural fibers like this one that add extra warmth to a home (smile).
I think my new braided placemats cozy-up our dining room table . . . and I love it!
Have you seen the new Fall seasonal Keurig flavors!?! Pumpkin Spice and Caramel Apple Pie!
Add a few tablespoons of Hazelnut Creamer to both and you have an over-the-top delicious hot drink to keep you warm during these cooler Fall mornings and evenings!
And for a little Fall fun . . . extra thick paper straws!
I found these darling straws at a local gift shoppe. I love their pattern and color. They're so festive . . . and go great in a pumpkin or apple pie shake!!
What are your early Fall favorites?
Here are a few more of mine, here.
