“I Found a Leaf”

Even though the leaves are very green here in Florida right now, I did find a pretty book this week with beautiful illustrations of Fall leaves.

And I finished my Fox (and even made another one).

This is a delightful children’s book that looks pretty with Fall decorations, too.

Do you like to watch movies set in Fall (like ‘You’ve Got Mail’) or read books with an Autumn theme? I know many of you have shared Fall poetry and I’ve enjoyed that. Another reason to embrace the season!

Neat! You have to appreciate Fall where you can find it. Right? The leaves are still green here too but we got a great cool front and it's wonderful outside. :)

Your fox turned out fabulous. Love children's books with the pretty leaves too. I'll share some of our MI leaves. I just raked the backyard Thursday evening after work and you'd never know it. Hugs!

Nice score. You do what a girl has to do if Fall colors do not fall in color.
in your state.
Oh your foxy is soooooo cute.

Great job!

I love anything with a fall theme!

Your fox is just darling. You are very talented and creative.

Hope you have a lovely fall evening.

Oh your fox is so cute!! Will you be going to North Carolina this Fall? We are heading to the Smokies in a few weeks to see the beautiful leaves.

Cute, cute fox! And it looks like a neat book for this time of year!

Diane ~ Your fox is just adorable. How sweet and I love the book too ;-)

EG CameraGirl said...

One of my most favourite movies is "You've Got Mail." ;))

Karen said...

your fox is so adorable! and the leaf book reminds of my childhood, bringing home pretty leaves to put between wax paper and "iron" so they'd stay fresh in a window for a while.

The book was an awesome find and your sly little fox is a cute fella.

Very nice book to add to your collection. I hadn't thought about reading books with an autumn theme...I'm not sure that I know of any. Oh sure, I know a few books with memorable autumn scenes, but not an entire book.

Adorable little fox. Have a great week. Valerie

The book and fox are both beautiful.

Poppy said...

Very pretty leaves and that fox is cute, but I'm sure, as foxes go, still sly!;)

Thanks for sharing the fun!

Ricki Treleaven said...

How old is that book, Diane? I swear it looks familiar to me. I want to investigate it a little bit.

Little fox dude is too cute!

Oh, by the way....you won my giveaway! :D

Thanks so much for supporting Literary Friday!

Cute fox. Did you make it from a pattern? The book looks lovely. I have winter books and summer books, but I can't think of any autumn books off hand. Any suggestions?

Veronica Roth said...

Hi Diane, your fox looks so cute. I have a book about making felt creatures and think it's high time I actually put my $20 investment to good use...lol. I think I might be the last romantic girl in the world who hasn't seen You've got Mail. I must make a point of actually watching that movie now. :) Hope you have a lovely week this week and nice catching up with you again.

love the idea of writing the book with your grandchild!! Take a walk in the woods or in a park with your child or grandchild. Pick the leaves up and write about all the colors and things you saw along the way and make a little book to take home to read to Mom and Dad or keep at Grandma's house to read on visits!!

Your fox is absolutely the cutest thing. And your book is fabulous! Hmmm...you've sent my wheels turning.
Blessings!

Donna said...

Haha, you changed your header - great scene! And your fox is foxy!

DogsMom said...

I love your fox and they do try to mate for life, so two is even better.

I will have to read all the comments to see which autumn movies I can not think of.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I love that book! And your fox. I used to help a friend gather Fall leaves to send to her sister who taught on the prairies of Montana. She said her little pupils had never seen a fallen leaf and didn't understand what their readers were talking about. We mailed huge boxes of leaves ever fall.

Geraldine said...

Its almost Thanksgiving here in Canada so of course watching Planes, Trains and Automobiles again was a must recently! ;>)

Love your little fox, how cute is that.

Grandma Kc said...

No fall here at all -- I really do miss the colored leaves and the cover of that book certainly brought back a lot of childhood memories. Oh and your Fox -- very cute!

edenhills said...

What a great book, and that fox is adorable!

ceodraiocht said...

Your little fox is so darn cute and your book makes me want to go gather leaves and do some crayon rubbing myself. Maybe even drag out the chalk pastels and see how they work. Love fall.

Cameron said...

Your fox is adorable! How sweet!

Your fox is just the cutest! Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

Hi namemate! I'm such a bad linky party host. I forgot to acknowledge your blog last week :( I'm sorry.

I love the title of the book. I'm sure it relays something very meaningful. Even adults who remains to be very kids at heart can relate.

Thanks for forever linking up namemate! Have a great week ahead!
