Every year I look forward to a visit to Hale’s Apple Farm pumpkin patch and with everything 2020 has brought us, I looked forward to that visit more than ever. The patch is adorable and even some spooky fellows, also has an adjoining orchard so apple picking was also on the schedule. 

I wore this lovely red plaid dress from Collectif Clothing and was so comfortable on this cooler Autumn day. The dress has a full swing skirt, pockets, a vintage style boat neckline and princess seams. I could twirl in this red check beauty all day!!  After all the wildfire scares in California, it was amazing to spend a day with my hubby Gary in the fresh air and surrounded by Autumn. 

There were lots of families and children visiting the pumpkin patch and everyone socially distanced and wore masks. It was so fun being amongst people rather than seeing them on Zoom meetings all day and we could all enjoy the seasonal activities of Autumn.

Apple picking was next on the list and boy oh boy did they smell sweet and yummy!! I couldn’t find my basket so I opted for my vintage Cathrineholm lotus bowl that held many more apples than I thought it would. I’m thinking of making some apple strudel or apple crumble to use up the apples. 

Lots more Autumn, Halloween, and other goodies are on the way to the blog…. And the holidays are coming too!!

I love a visit to our local pumpkin patch and can’t wait till October 1st rolls around as that is when Hales Apple Farm in Sebastopol, CA is all setup and open to the public. I very carefully plan my pumpkin patch outfit as my hubby and I take lots of pics.

Pumpkin Patch, Apples and Antiques Too

We are having a heat wave with temperatures in the mid 90s, talk about a late summer here in Sonoma County!! On the way to work we pass this amazing country harvest stand and they have filled it with pumpkins, squashes and apples and I believe they grow these on their farm. The site is really spectacular. I am looking forward to an open-house/parking lot sale at the local antique multi-dealer mall in town ‘Antique Society’ that is happening this coming weekend so I will certainly post some pics up about that. There have been lots of church sales advertised and coming up are the Christmas Bazaar’s I keep seeing signs for so I hope to get a chance to stop by and see what there is. I have been finding lots and lots of vintage Christmas decorations and figurines by Napco, Holt Howard, and Lefton and hope to one day have a room in my house that I can keep decked out for the holidays all year long as the magic of these vintage Christmas decorations just keeps me smiling, I love them!!  How about you all? Are you ready for Halloween and then of course the Holidays are right around the corner.
