Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.

"Winter is an etching, Spring a watercolor, Summer an oil painting, and Autumn a mosaic of them all." -Stanley Horowitz


  1. These pictures are gorgeous! I love the colors!

  2. I love these shots! Playing in the leaves is such fun!!

  3. okay, I know the shots are about the pretty leaves and I love them, but I must know about the skirt the little girl is wearing. I need to get one - it is so much better than the old school "tutu" prop :)

  4. The skirt is called a pettiskirt, they are very full and come in all colors. I would google pettiskirt and you'll find lots of choices from pricey designer brands to homemade pettiskirts. Also try etsy.com for handmade designs probably more affordable than the designer brands. This one was by Oopsy Daisy Baby, but I own 4 different skirts from a variety of sellers. They are quite addictive.

  5. Megan - awesome, I'm on the trail. Thanks, Mandi
