Getting ready for fall…

September in the Bay Area might actually be the hottest month of the year – but nothing will stop me from getting ready for my favorite season of all. Damn you 90 degree weather, I will wear my leather boots if I want to. Hubby shakes his head when he sees me get out of the door – stubborn much? :) That being said, we’re putting together a little camping trip with friends in the redwood forest this together (similar to what we did last year), and I just can’t wait to pack all of our camping gear, cosy sweaters, drink hot cocoa by the fire. It will be our first camping trip with a baby too!

I’ve been gathered little DIYs that are just perfect for fall:

1. Wooden polaroid gift set: Love this DIY by my friend Ashley at Sugar & Cloth. I think it would make the sweetest wedding present using pictures of the couples together, or for first time parents with pictures of their baby.

2. Basic weaving tutorial: Do you guys know how to weave? My hands are itching to…another thing to add to the list I guess. But when I do get to it, I’ll be coming back to this tutorial on A Beautiful Mess

3. Cross-stitch stool: by yours truly :) I have actually just been asked to make another fall/winter version of this stool for a magazine…it will be fun to make another 3 years later!

4. Leather catch-all wall pockets: I just about died when I saw those on Justina’s blog. They are simply perfect!

5. Hot water bottle cosy: If you know how to crochet, then this is the perfect fall/winter project! hot water bottle make me nostalgic – my grand-ma always had a hot water bottle to warm up our beds whenever we had a sleepover at her house – she was old school, no heat in the house.

6. Headbands: Love this idea of cutting up old shirts to turn into pretty little headbands

Also, I wouldn’t mind making waffles and trying out these guys on our camping trip – talk about awesome s’mores! :) Happy weekend, friends!

    Moi aussi je suis contente que l’automne soir là :) même si je n’ai pas trop hâte que les températures diminuent par contre!… J’aime les belles journées d’automne encore douces! Ah les tissages, va falloir que je m’y mette à force d’en voir partout! Idem pour les gaufres, ça doit faire un an que je veux un gaufrier et j’ai toujours pas investi… Allez, cet automne, je me lance dans l’un des deux 😉
