Jonathan Apples and Fall Tablescape!

I know that fall is just around the corner when the Jonathan apples are here!  These are my favorite apple, but they're only around for a few short months.  These were actually given to us by Nana, where she got them at a local apple orchard!  She was the one who told me about them, when she gave me her apple pie recipe, and she knows her way around a kitchen!

They were so beautiful in this big harvest bowl, that I just had to take some pictures!  I love the soft green color at the stem that fades to a beautiful pale red.  These apples are on the sweeter side for baking and have a wonderful texture--Mr. Cozy and I actually like when apples really soften in an apple pie.  Don't get me wrong, I still love Granny Smith's!!  These Jonathan I find are more versatile, because you can snack on them, too!

Now, to find lots of recipes to for these apples....

Good thing the latest Southern Living features some yummy looking ones! :)

I love these baby acorn salt and pepper shakers I got in Hendersonville, NC on our 5th Anniversary trip!

Here's a bit of my fall table decor this year...

I haven't bought anything new this year for fall...

(Shocker, if you knew me!)

...trying to be creative and use what I already have.  

These warm, rich colors make me happy to have around the house.  Here's my simple table arrangement that's comprised of mostly branches and "fallen" leaves.  I've had these candle holders for ages, and still love them.  (Although, I need to find two more tea lights.) 

Just a peak of fall here at The Cozy Little Kitchen in Kentucky!  Now I'm ready for the trees to show there vivid colors outside and the temperatures to linger in the brisk 60's and 70's!

Hope you all are getting your home all bundled up for the cool months ahead!
