Hi, Primmies, everyone seems excited (and relieved from the heat of this summer) about the approaching Fall Season. I know I am. I'm peeping from the kitchen window several times daily to see what leaves are starting to turn. Our little baby maples' leaves have turned colors, isn't that funny? The big fellas I'm still waiting. It was early last year. Maybe this year,too.
So, I've website-hopped a little and here's some pretty ideas for decorating and a Gingerbread
Muffin recipe (who doesn't love gingerbread?)
