Fall Fashion aside, another reason why I love Autumn is that it’s APPLE PICKING season! Ever since I was a kid, I have LOVED heading out to the country to gather up some crisp, delicious fruit. On a recent day trip, I drove my Ford Edge to Wilklow Orchards in Highland, NY. On my long drive outside NYC, I spotted beautiful fall foliage and collected ‘oodles of apples.

I re-purposed my bushel basket because I wasn’t ready to part with the cool container. I added some shiny dome studs, dropped in a lamp kit, wrapped the cord with rope and the result was this fun pendant lamp. Check out the full step by step DIY on Design*Sponge. P.S.- I also made baked apples and my FAMOUS strawberry rhubarb applesauce. I see it. I like it. I make it… (i also eat it!)
P.S.- Ford has provided me this 2011 Edge, gas and insurance to use as my primary vehicle for three months. In exchange, I will post videos, photos, and blogs that document my use of this vehicle in my everyday life. http://cmp.ly/6/uep9w6
