(please double-click photos to enlarge)

On this official first day of Fall: Happy Fall, ya'll! We had wonderful cool Fall weather here in North Texas---I'm thinking it was probably in the 70's! It was awesome! (I heard on the news that Boulder, Colorado had snow today!)

I love antique shopping in Waxahachie, Texas. I was there a couple of weekends ago running some errands. I didn't get to the shops downtown before they closed but that didn't mean I couldn't do a little window shopping! That might have been a good thing because I can spend hours inside The Gingerbread Anique Mall on S. College Street! And the ladies working there are so sweet and helpful. Above is their window, which was decorated for Fall.

Common Threads Quilting had a beautiful Autumn Leaves Quilt (kit available at their website) shown above in their window. As you can probably tell, it was already starting to get dark outside when I took this photo, but fortunately, they had lights in their window. I was so glad because I really wanted to share this window with you. If you double-click the photo, you'll be able to see these beautiful quilts!

It seems rare to find an actual quilt shop nowadays! I don't quilt, but my grandmothers did and I absolutely love quilts. This store is so fun to visit just to admire all the quilts on display, filling every wall of the shop! And the yards and yards of fabrics---gorgeous!
Above is another window at Common Threads Quilting, this one complete with adorable bunnies (can you see the 2 large bunnies in the left front of the window?....Why bunnies for Fall? I'm not quite "getting" that!....Well, you know how long it takes to make a quilt; maybe they're already starting on Spring quilts!

Hope everyone had a great first day of Fall!!!
