Happy Fall, Y'All....

October 1st already and I have so much to do! I'm working on my secret project, preparing my finished quilt top for machine quilting, making airplane reservations for a trip to Wisconsin (again), and working on some little surprises for those who have and are sending those wonderful acorns my way.

Yesterday, our favorite UPS driver delivered a BOX from Tyler, TX. Inside...You guessed it! Texas acorns from another part of the Lone Star State. And, Brenda of Cozy Little House blog is the generous person who must have used a big bucket to collect these beauties! I couldn't believe how many acorns were in the box.

I've used the same ironstone dish to photograph all of my acorns, and you can see that this shipment overflowed the dish. I'm tickled to have them and am sending gratitude (and a little gift) to each of you who have shared acorns from your states with me. I know there are more on their way, too! Handsome asked what I'm going to do with them, and I have to admit, I haven't a clue. All I know is that I'm getting a lot of acorn love, and I feel happy and content just looking at them. Tiny packages courtesy of Mother Nature and my blog friends. It just doesn't get any better than that!

Thank you, Brenda! I love each and every one of these beautiful acorns. I'll be sending a package your way in the next day or so. Happy Fall, Brenda...and all of you, my friends!
Be sure to go over to Brenda's blog, Cozy Little House. (Just click on her blog title to head over.) Please let her know you read about her here. She's got a great place to visit and I'm sure you'll enjoy seeing what she's got to say today. I love her house and how she accommodates her pets...Well, don't we all?! She'll make you feel at home, I'm sure.

There is nothing more beautiful then a collection of something. Those acorns are beautiful by themselves. I happy for you Donna. You are the acorn queen.

Wow....that is a lot of acorns!!! I'm enjoying reading about where all these acorns are coming from probably as much as you are enjoying receiving them.

I just LOVE this Donna!!! I've been looking for some big acorns, does this mean I need to go to Texas?? I can so see them piled inside of an apothecary jar with small sprigs of evergreen ~ Have a great day sweetie! xxoo, Dawn

I like your posts about acorns - one of my favorite fall images is that of squirrels in colorful trees hiding away acorns for a cozy winter (I'm thinking 1st-grade-stickers image, not real squirrels, which I find too rodent-like to be cute).

Makes me remember harvesting our garden as a child... ooh, post idea! Thanks for letting me free-write in your comments. ;)

I thank you for your sweet words. I'm sorry if some of the tops are off the acorns. That happens as they're handled. And we decided at the UPS office that a baggie would not handle well in transit. So they shifted them to the box. I'm glad they arrived safely. You're very, very welcome!

Lucky you! I have not seen any acorns out here in WA. When I was living in MN i would gather them and have dishes or vases full of them. My mother used to say I was competing with the resident squirrels. LOL They are a sweet little package from mother nature! Enjoy Sharon
