Ahhhh. Glorious fall activities require glorious fall outfits. Heading to the apple orchard (or pumpkin patch)? Wear: a classic plaid shirt, sturdy Blundstone boots, and a pop of color with this cozy infinity scarf. Carry: our favorite Utility Canvas tote (it will hold as many apples as you can carry) in a bright fall orange.
I stumbled on both of these recipes in the past week and thought they would make the perfect fare for an autumn party- a cocktail featuring not only apple brandy but maple syrup, and my friend Amy's bourbon spice pumpkin whoopie pies. *prepare yourself*

Makes 1 cocktail
Pour the brandy, lemon juice, maple syrup and vinegar into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake. Strain the cocktail into a chilled, tall glass and top with beer. Garnish with a lemon wedge.If you want to go all the way... you can find autumn themed whoopie pie pans here.
Rosehips, pumpkins, and colorful branches fill the shop right now... its fall at last! Also, with their pretty patterns and subtle autumn scents- we are in love the new K Hall candles.
We are SO ready for fall at Rose Bredl. New DBO home just arrived: gorgeous handmade pottery with patterns that come directly from nature. The artist literally presses in queen anne's lace, honeycomb, fallen leaves etc. to leave a ghostly etching in the clay.
If you can make it out tommorow night, join us at our anniversary party! We are so excited to have Ginger and Birch providing delightful gluten-free treats at the store, too.
Recently Mary and her husband Patrick took a trip to NYC. I love these photos of the High Line sky park taken by Patrick, and thought they would be fun to share with you! What a beautiful place to be, even on a rainy day it has a magical peaceful quality to it. Tomorrow I'll share Patrick's photos of the NYC flower market, so stay tuned!
Ps- Doesn't Mary look cute with her Hunter boots and red umbrella?
Garden Roses... especially some Augusta Louise (the pink one with the antique looking yellow tinges on its edges) perfect for September bride. We love that Katie used several garden rose varieties accented with ranunculus for her wedding this past weekend (and she was a gorgeous bride, to boot)
Again, sorry for the sporadic posting- not having a computer is difficult!
