Last Halloween, Tate became OBSESSED with this book. I remember him asking me over and over to read it until the point where I had it memorized (not that hard to do with a board book, but you get the point). After a while I could no longer muster the energy to use any expression. I was sure he would eventually get bored but I swear we could have read this book all day if I was able.
Every time I put this wreath on my door I get excited. Giddy, even. It signifies that fall is here (even if it is still in the 80s) and that makes me happy. I thought I loved fall before I moved out east. Pfft. I didn’t know what love was. I can now say with full confidence that fall is my favorite season.

I had a really hard time naming this post in such a boring, straight-forward manner. Just an FYI.
I normally don’t get that excited about wreaths that I make, but I really am pumped about this one. Yarn wreaths are by far my favorite but they take twelve years and five months to make. This is a problem. All of the hours spent wrapping yarn and untangling it only to tangle it again by continuing to wrap it is enough to drive a person insane. Oh, and let’s not forget all the time spent massaging your hand and hoping you don’t develop some type of arthritis. Yes, I’m a whiner and yes, it may not be that bad, but I’ve solved my problem regardless. This wreath is interchangeable! The bats are pinned on, not glued, so now I can take them off and pin on other things depending on the season or holiday. I can pin on snowflakes or blue roses for winter, hearts or red roses for Valentines Day, four-leaf clovers for St. Patrick’s Day, etc. Three cheers for preventing carpal tunnel! Continue reading
