Hello friends and Happy Halloween! I thought today I would share with you a revisiting of Autumn's Pantry, the project I worked on in 2019 that celebrates all the wonderful things this change of seasons has to offer. It is a local farmside shop which is a must-visit destination for the community at harvest's end.
The proprietor, Fiona, has dressed up in her favorite witchy costume to delight the children who stop by. She was created by Pauline Pugliese whom I have known since the beginning of her journey into doll making. She is an incredibly talented artisan, and Fiona is the cherished and treasured host of this establishment.
Folks also love to come by and visit with Spooky, the friendly black cat. He doesn't give you bad luck if he crosses in front of you, but he is likely to rub up on your pantlegs and leave behind a few hairs.
The shop offers seasonal delights such as baked goods and jams, locally bottled cider, locally grown apples, pumpkins and flowers and even offers home décor made by local artisans to decorate with for Thanksgiving.
Once you find all the fall delights you're craving inside the shop, you can take the family on a walk through the corn maze and into the pumpkin patch to pick your favorite gourd for carving. The grounds all around the shop are filled with seasonal decorations!
It is even a little spooky at night if you like that sort of thing.
Whatever way you celebrate the season, there's something for you at Autumn's Pantry! Come by for a cup of hot apple cider and a visit with old friends! Fiona and Spooky are waiting for you!
There are plans for a future sister shop to celebrate all things spring and summer, but that's a ways down the queue, yet.
I am off to visit my folks in Arizona, so until I see you again mid November, take care and enjoy all that the season has to offer!
