Harvest Moon and Pumpkin Spice Cake

If it isn't too cloudy where you live, check out that gorgeous moon.   I walked onto the end of the dock last night before bed and there it was shining down.   It's a special time of year.  The leaves are beginning to turn colors.  The squirrels are extra busy stashing acorns and raiding the bird feeders.

The autumn fruits and vegetables are in ample supply at the farmers market.  They make lovely centerpieces.... a good reason to display my vintage Vera tablecloth with the red ladybugs scattered through the brown and gold leaves.

The cool days have inspired me to make spice cake... what smells better than an apple pie or pumpkin spice cake baking?

If I am not baking, then I am sewing.  I just made some "candy corn" from quilt weight fabrics and perched them with pip berries in old vintage bed springs.  You can find them for sale in my Etsy shoppe.
