Fall leafs falling...onto my table!

August 20,2007

I just had to post what a wonderful friend sent in the mail! She found what I was looking for...suede type of fabric in the shape of fall leafs. They are placemats. She found them at Walmart at $2.88 a piece. What a BARAGIN! Don't you think those would be lovely on a table for the fall?! She sent me 8, I am a lucky girl! So these will be used along with my leaf side plates.

And here is the shape of the mats! Just lovely!

Don't you just love fall?! It is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the trees changing their hues of greens to yellows, oranges, reds. The canopys of the trees look radiant against a blue crisp fall day. It reminds me of a place here in California, just up the hill from Sacramento, called Apple Hill. It is a glorious place where you can pick bushels of apples and other fall season fruits. And visit a pumpkin farm and pick up pumpkins and hay bales and corn stalks for house decor. And then find a place for some warm apple crisp with wooey-gooey caramel sauce all in the same day and in the small area. I also love fall for the chance to wear a beautiful sweater! Yes...dreaming of fall knocking on my door soon.

Oh... I love fall, too! Can't wait! And I've never heard of anything more lovely than "Apple Hill". Could anything be better than that?

Thanks so much for visiting my blog; I appreciate your kind comment! Hope you'll visit again next time you have the time or inclination!

My best,

I love fall too and I'm so ready for it. Fall in Indiana is so pretty. I'm afraid it won't be as great this year though, with all of the heat and very little rain. I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed.

I cannot believe Walmart has these and I didn't know about it. Heaven knows, I spend enough time there - I SHOULD be able to do their complete inventory for them.
As often as I go, I usually don't WANT to, but I think I'm going to NEED to go there tomorrow and look for these placemats. lol They're awesome!

I can't believe how many of us bought those placemats!! We must've wiped out Walmart's entire leaf placemat stock!

That was nice of Kristie to get them for ya!

You'll love them! Mine got rav reviews last year!
