Autumn feels like such a mighty season.
Spring melts into summer so smoothly, so easily. So pleasantly.
Then all of a sudden autumn comes and blows all the summer lightheartedness away. Days grow colder, you have to let go of all the summer sweetness, temperatures drop and it feels oh-so-nostalgic.
Moule (our cat is named clam. Her little one is Minus and then we have 'l'affreux Jojo', 'the horrible Jojo') basked in the last hot rays of sunshine yesterday, covering her eyes so she could sleep. She didn't even hear me coming.
Autumn always gives me quite an appetite. Because I can't be outside as much (I'm cold easily) I feel like creature comfort all the time. So If you were wondering (like me): You can adapt these breakfast bars (found here originally) for people with hypoglycemia or diabetes if you exchange the brown sugar with fructose. It will turn the bars into a cake because it stays rather smooth (not exactly wobbly but definitely not 'bars') as a texture, but it sure does taste good. You can also exchange the raspberries with figs. It's very good as well and they're in season over here right now. It makes for an autumn cake.
Some posts ago I was asked where I get my fabrics from. Well, mostly from Etsy, some are vintage, but the fabric for the adult shirt is a Liberty fabric, and the green kid's shirt was made of fabric from Frau Tulpe. Hanna and I went to her store in Berlin and almost shopped ourselves senseless, but she sells online as well. The fabrics are rather expensive, though. The patterns for the elephant and the adult shirt cake from the books above.
