{5 Things to Do This Fall} - Part 1

1. Learn to knit. 
Ellen, of On The Lamb, assured me that anyone can make the cozy gorgeous scarf pictured below. Get going on it now and you'll have a stock pile of gifts for the holidays!

2. Invest in a good pair of warm socks. 
When the temperatures begin to dip, your feet will stay toasty warm in these durable socks by Scotch & Soda from Strawberry Threads.

3. Learn about an important Canadian like Terry Fox. 
On Sunday September 18th, Canadians across the country will take part in the Terry Fox Run. Douglas Coupland's book Terry takes both a visual and informative look at this incredible Canadian. Pick it up at Blue Heron Books.

4. Add some autumn-themed curb appeal. 
Mums are great because they are hearty (so they aren't easy to harm with lack of attention) and they look beautiful! Pick up a couple at La Petite Fleur.

5. Go on the Uxbridge Studio Tour. 
Speaking of great holiday gifts, the Uxbridge Studio Tour provides the perfect opportunity for finding one-of-kind pieces and meeting the talented artists who create them. You might find you'll be keeping everything for yourself!
