Free Friday – 8X10 Autumn Subway Art

Happy Friday, everyone!
I am sharing another FREE printable today. This time, I decided to create a fun piece of subway art with an Autumn feel. Autumn is my favorite time of year. The colors are glorious, the crisp bite to the air, the smell of leaves and the sound of laughter – I love it all! Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that I get to indulge in some Pumpkin Pie! LOVE IT! So, here is a fun piece of artwork filled my favorite autumn things (in some autumn colors)!

Thanksgiving Ideas Roundup!

I love Autumn, and one of the reasons is…THANKSGIVING! In Canada, we celebrate in October so we get to fill up on turkey even earlier! Today I’m sharing just a few of my favorite FALL finds with you. I hope they inspire you as much as they have me!
Our Best Bites shares some absolutely ADORABLE Oreo Turkeys. It’s *almost* a shame to eat them!
How about something fun for little fingers to do while waiting for dinner? Check out these free printable placemats from Tomkat Studio!
Simply Vintagegirl has the right idea with a gorgeous (and purposeful) THANKFUL TREE! Have everyone write something they are thankful for on each little tag. I love this idea. You could also use the same idea for a Christmas advent calendar!
Have you seen this idea around? Dip colorful leaves in wax to preserve the color! This can be used in SO many ways for Autumn and Thanksgiving decorating.
My husband LOVES Trifle, so he would go nuts for this Pumpkin Gingerbread variety! What a great twist on the traditional pumpkin dessert.
And, of course, I love me some word art. This amazing Autumn Subway Art is a free download from Hopscotch Studios. LOVE!
I hope this inspires you, and a happy Thanksgiving weekend to my fellow Canadians!


Some Fall Fun!

Autumn is my absolute FAVORITE time of year! The crispness to the air, which makes putting on a sweater totally kosher. The amazing color everywhere you look. The smells of apples, spices, and leaves that permeate the air. This is the most amazing season! 
Our tree decided to opt out of the brilliant color fashion show and drop every one of it’s leaves FAR before the others on our street. Well, when the world hands you leaves…you jump in them! But first…some serious tree-climbing needs to happen while daddy rakes up a pile.

 Who needs monkey bars when your little monkeys prefer tree limbs to swing on?
 Just make sure to take your heart medication before you watch how high your little monkeys want to climb!
 And put away those OCD tendencies when your kids want to roll in the leaves which are probably crawling with…wait, I put away those OCD tendencies….
 But it makes for some fun photos! (ew.)

 Oh, to be a child again and not care what creepy crawlies you are covering yourself with from head to toe (dang it,..maybe I should embrace the OCD)

 And if that’s not enough…those leaves are begging to be thrown sky-high, danced in, rolled in, jumped in, and in all other ways PLAYED in…thoroughly.

 But wait…we are missing someone! Someone tiny, cute, cuddly, and black and white. Someone who looks on longingly while the rest of us play. Oh, who will rescue Pebbles? 
Finally! A kind little girl put Pebbles’ leash on and she is ready for some leaf-romping!

 Who could say ‘no’ to a face like that?

More leaf – jumping madness to be had!

 …by all 🙂
This is one of the ways we celebrate Fall! How do you celebrate? I’d love to see some Autumn pics! Link up!
