This time of year I'm busy collecting leaves, hickory nuts and acorns. I remember the days when I collected them for fun...now it's not so much fun raking or blowing, bagging and then transporting them to the landfill so I can re-use the paper bags. What with the abundance of them on my lawn currently I thought this was a great idea to feature on my version of Tim Holtz's tag of November.
