Longing for Autumn

I've put out some of my pumpkins and other fall decorations. There isn't a lot since our stuff is still so far away, but I love the things I do have here! Thanks in part to my two swap partners, last year and this year.

Autumn is my favorite, but we don't have much "fall" in my neck of the woods, so it's nice to have some pumpkins and other fun stuff lounging about to remind me it is really autumn! :)

Today is my son's 15th birthday! I can't believe my little boy is growing up so quickly. My daughter also recently turned 11! She has grown up so much in the 2 years we've been living here in CA. I wish I could slow down time sometimes!

Harvest Swap 2015

For this year's Harvest Swap, I was paired with Becky from Ginger Creme Hollow! Visit her blog post here to see what I sent her!

She sent me lots of wonderful goodies!!

Prim Notepad.
Some fall leaves.
2 pumpkin pie wax tarts.
Package of cinnamon wax crows.
Sweet scarecrow. (made by Becky)
Fall magnets that Becky's neighbor made.
Autumn Blessings pillow. (made by Becky)
Trick or treat kitty ornament. (made by Becky)
2 recipes and some crow recipe cards made by her daughter.
Jack o lantern box with a tea light battery candle. (painted by Becky)
Package of fixins with putkas, rosehips, a crow (made by Becky), clothespins and spools dressed in fabric.

(I hope I didn't forget anything?!)

I did take a picture of the magnets on my fridge, as well as what I sent Becky, but I apparently deleted the folder with those pictures in it. :( I am so sad to lose some pictures!! I thought I transferred them to my hard drive, but they aren't on there either. There were some family pics in that folder too so I am bummed. I will retake the magnet pic tomorrow and add it to this post. They are cute!

ETA: aren't they cute!?

Thank you to Amy for hosting these fun swaps!
