The weather forecast for this second day of Autumn in Central NY is 90!!?!!
This may be 'normal' for some parts of the country...
but NOT. HERE.I didn't let it deter my Fall mood though! This morning I went out for an early morning walk through the changing leaves that have just started to drop. During my walk I chanced upon a curbside pile at a 'FOR SALE' home. On the edge of the pile was a beat old door with this little gem glistening in the morning sun! Of course I COULDN'T just leave it there!! With the help of some ever-present 'do-all' tools in my bag, it came home with me. Yes, it has a few nicks, and some layers of paint around the edges, but hey - who doesn't?!
While I was out, I also remembered a Rummage sale that I should be leaving for by 8:30!! Hey, a Girl's gotta do, what a Girl's gotta do when it comes to 'RUMMAGE'!

Even on such a warm day, I HAD to try this Mohair baby on! I'm 6'-0" and it reaches to my knees + I have to turn a cuff up in the sleeves = that's a lotta yarn!!! Not too often I find a 'little' lovely that fits this perfect for $3 in this perfect of shape... Yes, yes, rather 80's pattern, but I think with the right accessories this will become my new Fall 'go-to' piece! With chocolate or black - it's got it.

Continuing on my Autumn purchase theme...
a ribbon scarf in great aqua/orange color scheme (.25¢)

Halloween dish towel (.25¢)

'New' Metallic gold foil craft tape & jingle bells (.5¢ea)
Tomorrow's weather prediction is for a more seasonable mid 60's, and it is the NAPLES Grape Festival, so maybe I will get my first chance to snuggle in my new sweater!!

Love that sweater! I think it will be a great addition for the Fall. So glad you found that door knob! I'm ready for cooler weather also.
