What a great craft to do with your kids. Gather up some fall colored leaves, print off the Robin template and start gluing. Especially good to do with the little older children. Katherine of Kids Crafts and Activities has a great site to help get your kids creative juices flowing. For the complete Robin tutorial, click on the photo above!

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Fall Vintage Wreaths

Wreaths are a good way to add to your fall decorating. You can see all the beautiful colors of fall in a wreath. So with that said....I thought we would visit Etsy and see what vintage fall wreaths we can find......:)

Acorns are a big part of the fall scene. They are used in all sorts of autumn designs. This wreath from lilibetdesigns has lots of acorns and some squash too. 

Of course this time of year we see lots of scarecrows sitting in the gardens that have been harvested. Why not have one hang on your door with this cute wreath from Stoneponies. How cute is he. :)

I remember all the twigs and berry decors from a few years ago don't you. This twig wreath has all the fall colors. You can find it at HitorMissTreasures

This one isn't exactly your normal wreath of leaves and fruit, but I really like the barbed wire design and all you need to do is put a fall colors ribbon on it like it shows at WoodsorrelDixie. Actually several years ago we made some of these type of wreaths to sell. :)
They are great for a rustic decor. 

These are just a few of the vintage wreaths that are out there. I am sure you can check your local antique store and malls and you should be able to find some nice one's. :)

Have a great week!

Pumpkin Spice Granola

I not only love the colors of fall when all the leaves begin to change from green to beautiful reds, yellow, gold and orange, but I also love the tastes of autumn. Comfort food recipes pop up all over the internet with the promise of stews, soups and heavier meals. Even though granola tends to be a little calorie and fat heavy, the ingredients are generally natural and raw making this a healthier choice.

This Pumpkin Spice Granola has everything going for it. It is sweetened with pure maple syrup and is made with real pumpkin puree!!! Nuts, seeds, oats and coconut add to the nutrition and deliciousness of this granola. Oh, and let's not forget the pumpkin pie spice!!! Now that's what I call comfort.

Ali of Give Me Some Oven has the complete recipe along with lots of beautiful photos to help along the way. Click on the photo above for the recipe.

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Fall Leaf Suncatchers

Well fall is definitely in full bloom up here. Actually the leaves are in full color and beginning to fall to the ground. I love all the fall colors, but so said to see them go. :( 

So with that you need a fall project for the kids to do or maybe just yourself. I saw this tutorial and thought it would be nice for just yourself to do. Over at Buzz Mills you can find this tutorial for making this fall leaf suncatcher. How neat will this look hanging in your window. 

Wish I had all the oak and maple leaves up here to do this. Actually we have a lot of beautiful colored leaves on the bushes and berry plants that I can use....hmmmm....might have to do this. :)

Have fun!

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Easy Fall Centerpiece

I love fall and I love to decorate my house for fall. I just love all the fall colors. I don't have a really big house that I can have a lot of decorations, but I do get a few out. If you have a table or mantel that you need to decorate how about doing something like this video shows. Looks very easy and you probably can find all the supplies at your local craft store.
