September Seasonal Table & Blog Award!

September Passing By

It's golden in the treetops
It's golden in the sky,
It's golden, golden, golden
September passing by...

~ M.T. Schunamann

The air is starting to cool (at night, at least) in Southern Cal. Though our next few days are set to be in the low 100's by our house, signs of fall are approaching.

Time for the apples on the trees to redden and the bright greens to change...

Time for Pine Cone and Pepper Pot to emerge for some story telling adventures among the acorns and the fallen logs, along with Reynard the Fox - ready for our 2nd Grade trickster tales...

And if you look close enough, you can see some golden gems the little gnomes have brought up from deep within the earth's cave as they sit by the fire and share stories of adventure and lore...

I also wanted to give a shout out of appreciation to anyone who put in a vote for my blog during The Waldorf Connection's *Best Waldorf Blogs* contest! I was excited to be give a spot in the top 10 (or 11) among all of those really amazing blogs. And I was honestly surprised to not see some of the other most deserving blogs listed in there, as well! The results can be seen here.

I am most honored...(((big hugs to all)))!


  1. Wonderful Nature table, and I am not surprised you won that award, you are one clever lady, who shares your journey with the world. love and light Marie

  2. hey Jen,
    just wanted to thank you for the heads up on the yahoo group and I wanted to know if you got my email. I wrote you last week...

    talk to you soon.


  3. Anii - I just looked through my inbox and didn't see an email - hmmmmm...can you resend it and I'll check it right away? Otherwise, feel free to leave me a comment with your email addy and I can send one to you to start off (I won't publish the comment, of course!)

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    And thanks Marie - you're always such a sweetie (and the first to congratulate me on my etsy shop when I opened it - such a warm soul you are!)


  4. beautiful!!!!! best wishes for autumn to you and your family!

  5. Did you just say its almost time for the apple trees to blossom?? What a strange desert land you live in :)

    Beautiful nature table... but yours always are.

  6. ha! Alyss, I said flower, but that's a typo that I'll have to fix! The apple trees are turning red now and are starting to hang heavy on the branches so it's a blossom of fruit - lol! Anyway, thanks for pointing that out to me :D

  7. I kind of figured thats what you meant. But you still live in a strange desert land ;)

  8. I'm leaving you an award on my blog later on today.

  9. Oh, I love your little fox! He's so sweet!

    And congratulations on the blog award. I had never heard of this site before-- I can't quite tell what it is exactly. Your blog is so lovely though, so I'm glad they honored you! :)

  10. jen, have you closed your giveaway for your beautiful sunflower maden? It won't allow comments to be posted and I was wanting to post. My email, bte

  11. Ani - I haven't closed it, so I'm not sure why you can't comment. Keep trying and if you can't, I will enter you. LMK which book you like, too for a second entry. Sorry it's being difficult! sigh...

  12. Jen, for me, on that page only,there is no white comment box.crazy.
    we are reading "the Bobbsey twins" series right now. I think my boys like them cause I read them as a little girl and because of their adventures. :)

  13. Sorry - I have no idea why it isn't showing the right setting for you, Ani! I did cut and paste your comment, so you'll be entered in the giveaway twice :D
