Autumn Leaves

"When autumn leaves start to fall..." - Johnny Mercer

Fall is here. It's crisp, with terse winds. It's nippy, not biting. I like it.

This year, for some reason, it is especially beautiful to me. The gold leaves are especially golden. The red leaves are deeper, more heartfelt.  Everything is in it's place. The leaves are glowing. 

I found this green military jacket at a thrift store, and added a bit of craft love to it for a BurdaStyle project. I made a heart full of buttons that I hand-sewed on, and replaced all of the jacket buttons with fabric-covered ones. Get step-by-step instructions on how to make both, here.


- I'm also wearing a scarf from my friend Shaun, pants from Gap and thrifted shoes. 


  1. awe, i remember this scarf. LOVE!

  2. aw your button heart is so cute!! I like the way you arrange teh big buttons in the middle and smaller ones on the outside :-)
