Some Things: Apple

It's time for another somethings post!  In honour of back to school, I've gathered some apple inspired diy/crafts, art, recipe, etc.  

TO SET:  An absolutely beautiful yet simple table setting with fresh apples and spray-painted, crumpled soda cans holding green stems.

TO FRAME:  This apple print has a modern look with the black on white

FOR YOU:  Kate Spade's New York apple pattern is super cute.  It seems to be sold out online, but I saw a ton of stuff at the outlet last week including: clothes, bags, wallets, iPhone cases and tablet cases. I'm now regretting not picking up something (clearly I'm still thinking about them a week later).

TO WRAP:  A simple way to wrap a gift for a teacher or fall event using a Chinese-style take-out container.

TO CUDDLE:  I have admired these apple pillows for sometime.  The shop that sells them is on holidays, but is scheduled to reopen in September.  I think making one of these would be fairly simple from an old sweater.

TO BAKE:  Apple Cardamom Cake -  this is one of our favourite apple cakes.  It's really moist and it has cardamom spice that us Finns like so much. :)


I'm still adjusting to having my oldest in school.  He, on the other hand, has done so well.  I can't believe that, just a a few short months ago, he refused to even go to Sunday school without me.  On his first day he just marched on into the school without looking back.  Now I find that both his little brother and myself don't really know what to do while big brother's in school.  Little brother has actually been really missing him and this I had not anticipated.  I guess he has never been without his brother for that long.  As we're taking time to adjust to our new routine, I'm excited to let you know that our kitchen cabinet doors and countertops are being worked on again.  Let's hope that there are no more delays.  My birthday is in about two weeks and I think it would be the best birthday gift ever to have this kitchen done!

    1. It's his smile for the camera face and it's one of my favourites! I think all of us have had some difficulty transitioning to this new phase in life. I appreciate you thinking of us!
