Rhondi's Fall Party 9/22/09

Rhondi of RoseColoredGlasses is have a fall party. Visit with her to see the other participants.

As I've stated before I am not much for the colors of fall but it is a season I love because of the crispness in the air and the smells of baking that people usually do that time of year in anticipation of the holidays. Candy!!!! My favorite season is winter because I love the "snugginess" of it, and while I love snow I do NOT like to drive in it and pretty much don't unless there is an emergency. Sitting with a cup of hot chocolate while the first snow of the season drops down from the heavens is my idea of heaven. I just love that feeling one gets when viewing the outside world so silent.

So here is my contribution in photos for Rhondi's Party:

Oh, and I love ironing this time of year also. Cool and crisp. The photo is not my home but I have a tablecloth exactly like the one on the ironing board. Gasp!

And this is what I've been doing today. Five aprons have been completed and are hanging in my kitchen area. Five more need finishing and I've cut out 6 or 7 more to sew. I'll be showing them in detail later but I need a model and Love Bunny is a bit hesitant to model them all so I'll have to wait until I can con....uhhhh, I mean ask politely....a chick in our ward to come over and model them for me. I just love this time of year! Plus I just may sell some of them and they are truly adorable. I'm calling them "Scraprons" because they are made from scraps I've had around the house.

Random Thought:

If I put the underwear in the washing machine with the right side out, it comes out wrong side out. So should I not turn it right side out before putting it in the machine and let the machine do the work for me???? Just a thought.....


  1. Happy Fall Connie,I LOVE the same things as you the first snowfall.Cozying up for Fall baking the crispness of the air.Your aprons are so adorable I love the rooster on and the one with the ivory trim and pink roses with black bakground.Hugs,Jen

  3. Woman you are a trip! And now I know how the phrase "trip" came about in describing someone. I call you a trip because when I read your posts I fall down laughing. Sweet, sweet aprons and I'll just let the undie thing go for now as I'm doing laundry already and forgot to check the order in which it went in :) lol

    Those aprons are so sweet. I love the name of them... my Mom used to make afghans out of scraps of yarn that she called "Scrapgans."

  13. Hi Connie,

    You have described it perfectly! The crispness in the air in fall, and the smell of cookies, or pie in the oven. In winter, the coziness, and snugliness. I love to watch the snow falling softly outside, and sometimes I like to walk in it at night. So, peaceful,quiet, when the snow falls softly from the heavens.
    That is heaven! :)


  14. Hi Connie, Happy Fall! I love this time of year! This is the only time of the year that I like the colors of rust, orange, brown and yellow. Deserts look so yummy! I love your aprons, but especially love the pic of the old sink, ironing board and wicker basket!
    Love ya, Shirl

    Do you have any aprons with bibs you'll sell in shades of pinks and creams? Be cute to wear when I cut the wedding cake. I would need it by the week of Nov. 14th. Let me know, Lori
