The weather down here in Florida may not have gotten the memo yet, but fall is officially upon us. So let's celebrate!

Pumpkins, pumpkins, everywhere - and this time I'm not complaining! Love the raffia border between the two tiers, and check out that gorgeous hand-painted scene.
In addition to my favorite color (orange!), fall is all about rich shades of bronze, gold, and - oh yeah - CHOCOLATE:
Mmmm. That acorn & leaves bundle is too perfect. Who needs flowers?
In fact, I like how fall puts all the changing leaves at center stage:
But really, we're gonna need some more pumpkins in here.
Really digging this design, although that lace pattern has me stumped. I'm guessing it's airbrushed on over a stencil? Could also be an edible image, though. Anyone know for sure?
Here's a delicate modern number - or does it feel more vintage?

Now this next one is definitely modern, and I like it.

I NEED THESE FLOWERS.
I want to stare at them all day and make soft cooing noises.
And finally, a Sweet so quintessentially fall it makes me want to pack up my sweaters and move north:

Kicking through leaf piles! C'mon, it doesn't get more fall than that.
I'm so impressed with the little girl sculpt; the leaves on her skirt & boot really do seem to be levitating. And look at those adorable little bushes & toadstools on the bottom! And the fox! Ah! SO GOOD.
Hope you enjoyed your Sweets today, everyone! Happy Sunday!
