Autumn!!!

You know what this is, right?

Perhaps a Pumpkin Spice Latte? And you know what that means, riiiight??
That's correct....IT'S AUTUMN!!!

And here at Chez NK we are celebrating autumn's arrival with great gusto!

A healthy fruit and nut bar...not only yummy, but look at those awesome autumnal colors!!

And to celebrate the launch of a new season...here is the launch of a new sock! Are these colors not ab-fab? Mercy. This is the meager beginning of a toe up sock in Dashing Dachs yarn in the 'Crabby' color...but to my eye, this screams autumn to me...misty mornings, golden Ginkgo leaves, the burning red of a Japanese maple, the warm orange of a Sweet Gum, and a hint of lichen clinging for dear life from the soon to be barren trees...

It's the first day of Autumn and I'm doing a happy dance in my handknit stockinged feet!!

Happy Monday, but most of all ~ Happy Autumn!!

This made me laugh. I was in the city today and had my very first pumpkin spice latte. Ahhh, I love this time of year. It was the perfect, crisp, clear fall day to top it all off!

Happy Autumn! We're celebrating the first week of autumn in the usual California central coast way by having a heatwave. I just keep telling myself I may get some more tomatoes out of it. :)

Love your Crabby - the colors just scream "fall" now don't they? Love this time of year...the crispness in the air, the fall leaves, the Halloween candy at the store...yep, love this time of year and certainly love your photos!
