Yesterday I had my niece over for a day of fall fun. The day was a picture-perfect fall day, and we went on our "Looking for Fall Treasures" walk in the woods. When Annie comes over, the first thing she does is to peek into my fairy house to see what the fairies have left.
She loves to wear this fairy ring when she comes over. She is good about putting it back so the fairies will always have their beautiful finds.
And we're off!
We headed off down the road in front of my house on our search.
Along the road, we found loads of beautiful leaves to take home.
Then we headed into the woods.
Did I mention it was a beautiful fall day?
The day was a welcomed and wonderful gift when this fall has been so rainy and cold.
We found many different types of moss. We also loaded up our basket with bark, twigs, vines, leaves, pine cones and a couple of acorns the squirrels had missed.
Tempting fate. (She assured me that she knows how to swim...)
My dog had as much fun as we did.
Then we headed home and made this treasure box. (Directions can be found on Country Living website here) I covered a matchbox with velveteen fabric and we glued her "treasures" on top of the box. That girl was a madwoman with the glue gun. I am lucky she didn't glue my entire kitchen down!
Thanks, Annie, hope you had fun!
