Feature Friday: Inspired by the City of Oaks

Acorns are starting to fall from the neighbor’s massive oak trees that tower our house. In the summer these trees provide much needed shade. But when the temperature starts to fall so do the acorns. The sound of falling acorns on the roof can be both comforting and annoying. For the next month or so these acorns will be falling from the trees and rolling down the roof of our house hitting the gutters before settling on the ground or our deck (insert sound effects).

The squirrels. They are already frantically gathering everything they can find for winter. When I hear them running around on the roof, they sound like they could all be wearing tiny combat boots.

Raleigh, NC is known as the City of Oaks for its many oak trees. Oak trees and leaves is the inspiration for my Etsy finds this week. Hope you enjoy!
