Only, does it really count as "stealing" if they're on the sidewalk?
They're just so pretty, those ginkgos. And rare. At least around here.
Although I have to say, I'm not fond of the actual trees.
True, my "fall banner" hits the paintings at an awkward spot, but we're making do, here. We're acting like those screws are intentional FOR THE WIN.
(check out the artist's site here)
So, I'm making do.
Kitchen cabinets are totally frame-like, if you think about it.
I taped it right over the glass with borrowed washi.
Does it seem like I'm more invested in fall this year than usual? I'm acting like it's Valentine's Day. I can't explain it.

My friend sent me this year-long calendar and I want to kiss it on both cheeks, European style.
I know it's not November yet, but it almost is, and I don't know, it made me happy that she let November have some fall fun, too. We always give the pumpkins to October, and November just gets the pie, which, let's be honest, isn't the best of the pies. (It's a texture thing.)
You'll have to close your eyes for this last thing, because I don't have a picture.
Are they closed?
Now are they?
Picture bushels of sweet, juice, Honeycrisp apples held together by just enough flour and sugar to qualify it as a cake.
Do you see the picture I'm painting here?
No? This might help.
It was so good. It probably goes without saying, but the caramel sauce is not even slightly optional. (I used whole milk instead of heavy cream and it worked just fine, I just had to cook it down a bit longer. Also, I added half a teaspoon of vanilla, because it seemed like the right thing to do.)
We're in the home-stretch of October. Can you believe it?
I'll be honoring the day with knee socks, crock pot root beer pulled chicken, a few cut-throat rounds of this game, and New Girl reruns after dark.
Happy fall, ya'll.
