October Fest Reveal

Rita of Toltec Jewels is hosting a little celebration today - an October Fest to celebrate the splendor of Autumn.  Her challenge was simple:  make an autumn inspired treat.  I chose colors that remind me of autumn, of pumpkin pie and butterscotch and turning leaves:
I also ventured outdoors to see if I could find any remnants of fall.  There are still a few leaves on our trees, but most are bare now.  The leaves that have fallen are no longer vibrant, but dead and dull.  We had a bit of snow the other day that left them sodden.  But beneath all the dreary, I found this:
A perfect leaf stenciled on our driveway.  Beauty is indeed all around us, even if sometimes we have to look a little harder.

Join me in visiting the other October Fest participants, and be sure to tell Rita "Happy Birthday" when you visit her page!!
