While October is the month for pumpkins to shine, every year around this time I go on an apple diet. I just can’t resist all the shiny, bright displays at my grocery store and farmers markets. And with apples hitting their peak in the fall – they’re so delish and plentiful, not to mention cheap and filling – I find myself happily eating them at almost every meal.
So in honor of the humble apple, this week’s Etsy 4 for Friday picks center around my favorite fruit:
• I’ve always had a thing for vintage crates and labels. Bright, colorful, unique and cheap art – what’s not to love? This 1950’s Hy Valley Apple Crate Label hails from Yakima Washington and would look fabulous in a kitchen, dining room or child’s bedroom. Measuring 8.75 by 10 inches, it will be a easy to frame and display. $5.75
• I like the taste of apple cider, but I really adore the scent. So I’m thrilled at the idea of lathering up with some Spiced Apple Cider Olive Oil Soap This pretty little bar (love the scrolls) of moisturizing soap is scented with fresh harvest apple cider with a hint of cinnamon and promises a light, frothy lather. Sold. One bar $4.50
• Add some apple goodness to the breakfast table with some homemade Apple Butter. This sweet, organic and vegan spread is great on morning toast, bagels, waffles etc. Eat as much as you want – this spread is made with apples picked from 150 year old trees that have never been treated with hormones, artificial ingredients or pesticides. $6.25
• Apples are great, but sometimes you just need some chocolate. Get your fix in the form of a dozen Autumn Harvest Red Apple Cupcakes. These incredible cupcakes are available only to those in West Virginia, but are so awesome I just had to share them with you all (and maybe I’ll inspire a few baking experiments this weekend). One dozen $24
we heartsters – do you visit the apple orchard every fall?
