Leaves are falling, pumpkins are popping up on every doorstep, indeed the season of giving thanks is upon us.
I don’t know about you, but I live for the fun of these cool fall afternoons every year. What could be better than a long walk followed by a warm cup of cider? Or pumpkin carving at the kitchen table?
Apple picking at your local orchard may cost a small fortune, but when you save on the little things like these DIY Thanksgiving decorations, you’ll have plenty left over to make the most of the season!
