With fall starting this week, I chose another fall theme for this week's Things I Love feature: Acorns!

One More Acorn

First up, is a book that was pieced together by the son of the famous Don Freeman (author of the Corduroy books), Roy Freeman.  Roy had found the handwritten text and sketches among his father's belongings after his death.  He then pieced them together and brought this fun book, One More Acorn, geared for pre-school and elementary children.
Charming Tails Acorns

How cute is this little guy?  I have always liked the Charming Tails line, but never saw this one.  

acorn pregnancy announcement

Having had 6 babies, I began to run out of ways to announce our pregnancies.  I wish I had discovered Jeannie at Petite25 before we announced our last baby.  In addition to these adorable acorn announcements, she has a bunch of other ones that are just as creative.

acorn stamp

I love when I have the chance to create things and have recently been getting back into making homemade cards and stamping.  When I saw this stamp by Marlene at pictureshow, I knew I needed to include it here.  It is perfect for decorating fall themed cards or menu cards on Thanksgiving.

acorn napking ring

To go with your stamped acorn menu cards, you can use these acorn napkin ring by Tikkido.  If you want to make them yourself, I was given permission to share the link to Tikiddo's tutorial for my crafty readers.

acorn necklace

After you finish dressing up your table, you can dress up yourself with this beautiful acorn necklace from EnchantedLeaves.  I love this snow pearl and silver one, but they offer a variety of colors and metal combinations in their shop, so you can always choose the one you like best.

acorn peg dolls

I think these peg dolls with acorn caps by Lisa at Simple Gifts (SimpleGiftsToys) are simply adorable. She has tons of items I love in her shop, so be sure to check her out.

acorn mobile

This acorn mobile by Asta at astashtoys would look lovely in a woodland themed nursery.  It is also available in pastel colors.  Her shop also has a bunch more acorn items that would complement a woodland themed room.

acorn sorting toy
I love this Montessori/Waldorf friendly sorting toy by Heather at Homegrown Toys.  My 2, 6, and 7 year olds would all enjoy using the tongs to sort the acorns. Heather has also graciously offered my readers a 10% discount with the code JOY10.  She also has lots of beautiful wooden items in her shop, that would be great in a Montessori or Waldorf based setting, or any home.
