Apple Pickers [Slacktory]

I’m looking forward to the quilt-tasting at the Amish Puzzle Barn!


Apple Pickers, by Alex Schmidt and Nick Douglas

Autumn-lovers, this is what you sound like.

If a pumpkin spice latte and a decorative gourd centerpiece had a baby, and he starred the the funniest Slacktory video in years.

For real, you guys, I laughed my face off. 

I just want you all to know that I’m calling it now, and this fall is the season of smart, nice women who love books and the internet and what they can do when brought together by smart, nice people.
