It’s officially fall! Woo hoo!
Everywhere I look, there are signs of fall…pumpkin spice everything, boutiques stocking up on warm colors, a chilly breeze in the mornings and the leaves on the trees are losing just a bit of their vibrancy as they begin to change from lush green to warm shades of red, gold, orange, purple and yellow. I love it!
And even though these are signs that the year is winding down, I feel like it’s just starting for me. Is it the same for you?
Fall is the start of so much – school, football season (Go Gators!), party season (we have tons of birthdays and holidays in the fall! Not to mention block parties and town festivals!). Then there are the visits to corn mazes and pumpkin patches, and all the fun stuff that happens in the fall. And that crispness in the air after the muggy hot summer gives me a new lease on life.
For me, the start of fall ushers in a whole bunch of fun memories. My husband and I met in the fall, and our kids (and even our dog!) were born in the fall. We moved into our house and amazing neighborhood in the fall, which was the start of our ‘family’ life together.
And this year, fall also means a new start to The Teal Magnolia. After a tiring pregnancy and giving myself plenty of time to settle into being a family of 4, I am ready to get my creative juices going again and give my sewing machine a little more love.
For starters, coffee cuffs!
I figured that I’d start back up with the product that got me started in the world of handmade. Plus, with all the fall lattes going around, what better way to stake claim to yours? Don’t forget that these also fit different types of cups, including pint glasses and party cups (depending on the style), so don’t forget to bring yours along to those football parties, block parties and Oktoberfests. Seriously, these are awesome on pint glasses.
So if you have a chance, stop by my online shop and check them out. I’ll be adding more products bit by bit.
I hope fall is as exciting for you as it is for me. What’s your favorite part of fall?
