I love your collection of clothespin with the white laces wrapped. It is beautiful to look at. Those clothespin must be big to hold a roll. I don't believe I've seen one like it before.

I read the comment you made on Dawn's post and I totally agree with you. I love the feeling of the crisp evenings in the fall but in the back of my mind I know "what comes next" and find it hard to enjoy all of the fall colors because of it....lol
Have a sweet fall day and enjoy the warm while we can.
