You can learn a lot of things from the flowers and the pumpkins that shine like gold doubloons.
There's a wealth of happiness and noms all in the golden afternoon.

My bestie came down from Chicago to visit me in my natural habitat and to ogle at the changing foliage. I took her to an apple orchard and pumpkin patch where we partook in delicious apple donuts, cider, and feasted our eyes on bright gourds, Indian corn, and gorgeous mums. We ended the golden afternoon with scrumptious dinner of barbecued meat, twice baked potato casserole, Carolina slaw, and baked beans.

Recently, I've also been bitten by the craft bug! I've been concocting all sorts of DIY stuffs like bows, scarves, and more bows!!! I dunno what to do with all the extra stuff I make, I'm actually thinking about opening an etsy shop! For those who already have a shop, how much work do you put into making stuff?

  11. I love that dress!!!! I still have to get myself the right floral dress...I see a lot of them here but I just haven't found the right print that I like. It must have been super nice to spend time with your bestie! I love doing that with my close girl friends, but they're mostly close to home. I just can't imagine them living too far away. But I guess that makes every time you see each other more exciting huh? It must have been an awesomesauce day!

    DO IT, open that etsy shop...DO IT!!! I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I would buy the stuff that you make. So do it!!! :D

  16. Love the bracelet and of course, the super hero pin. I just blogged about my Danger Mouse shirt so how can that not be one of my favourite items of your outfit? You look so lovely and glowy! Sounds like you and your friend had a wonderful time. It might be worth considering just selling your items on your own site. There are some free shopping cart services available and then you wouldn't have to pay the listing fee that Etsy charges for each item.

  18. You should open an Etsy shop Laura! You're very talented. Plus the extra money would be nice. I definitely support you in this venture. Do it! Girl, those ribs and baked beans look YUMMY DELISH! OMG'd I can't even eat that right now. Still on soft foods. Thanks for your tweet! Those mums are simply gorgeous. I always love the different colors they come in. You and your friend had an awesome time! Love your dress Laura. I love Target! You can buy some wonderful things without breaking the bank. They have the cutest ballet flats. I'm always buying them for myself and MOM. Hope you're having a fab Tuesday. TTYL ((HUG))

  21. The visit to the pumpkin patch sounds fun, especially the apple doughnuts & cider. Delicious! I love the print on your dress, It looks lovely with your blazer, I really need a new blazer to wear over dresses! x

  22. I love these fall pictures! Your dress is super cute too. I think I own a skirt from Target with the exact same print!

  23. Great dress! The lighting in your outfit photos is so pretty.

    See, we have all of those pretty fall things here in Chicago, but they're in grocery store parking lots instead of at orchards. I grew up in a much smaller city where the countryside was pretty easily accessible - I really miss that in the fall. Sigh...

  27. love the print on the dress.. so lovely!

    we bought a bunch of pumpkins at work for a program we were having and kept the leftover ones in our cubicles over night.. i came in this morning and three of them had decided to rot and leaked their insides ALL over my cubicle carpet.. AND they left a sour aroma (so disgusting) ALL day (even after shampooing)!! i'm hoping when i get there tomorrow, it's gone. so lovely pumpkin photos, but they made me angry, haha :)

  30. Why are you so cute? Hmm? Answer me that.

    I bet you're fun to hang out with. I envy your bestie. What gorgeous pictures. The colors are brilliant.

  31. Yes to Etsy! You are so talented you need to put that energy somewhere and the little extra cash will help you buy more "stuff"! I shouldn't have come to your blog at this hour, not that I don't love you my dear b/c I do, but because my stomache is growling looking at pictures of the delicious food. Just the mention of apple cider donuts alone is making me drool. Perfect outfit for foliage ogling by the way. I hope to be able to see some leaves change colors this Sunday after I finish with my exam, eck...

  32. It is always so fun to have a good friend visit! Making stuff for my etsy shop is definitely a lot of work, but since I love it doing it, it's not bad at all :) I say go for it! :D

    P.S. Those food pics are making me so hungry right now!

Anyways...I love the dress BUT...omg how adorable is that wonderwoman in??? TOO CUTE :))))) I just started to look for stuff on etsy...OMG can you spend a lot of time on there looking and finding stuff you want..I mean need! I don't know how much time, BUT...you should visit my friend nelah who has a blog at: http://52newdays.blogspot.com/2011/11/hey-etsyhere-i-come.html

    This is her post on her store which just opened up. Maybe she can tell you how long it took to set up shop and so forth? Good luck and I am looking forward to seeing the Shop of Worldly Delights!

  38. Looking really lovely in your outfit, Laura. I love the dress, and I love the print and your flats are just cute! And ohh I love the photos, especially that one with the flowers. The colours are stunning! I just love it when flowers are bunched up in huge baskets like that.

    And yes, I encourage you to open up your own Etsy shop! It's a fun way to showcase your crafts and share it with other people who wish to don your creations as well ;)

    Cheers,

  42. Ooooo gorgeous fashion and food photos - my favorite! I'm living vicariously through all my American bloggers' fall experiences because they don't have the same thing over here. There were a few jac-o-laterns, but no Indian corn, cider, decorative wheat shafts! Or BBQ I might add! Nommms is right!

  46. I love pumpkins, I'm going to miss them, they are so pretty. I wish I had taken some pumpkin patch pictures this year.

    I love your outfit, I think I own that dress. Me and my constant uncertainties, either way, love the dress. I love the combination of colors and that pin is awesome!
