Welcoming Autumn...A Layer At A Time!

Now that we are into September, the sunlight is beginning to change....only slightly, though.  The afternoon temperatures are still sweltering, but there is a hint of change in the air.  Before long, there will be a front barrel down on us and we will awake to a bit of crispness in the morning air.  I am so ready.....

Autumn is my favorite time of the year.  It's a time when I am filled with a vibrant sort of energy.  Maybe it's the change in weather, or the anticipation of the holidays right around the corner....but, my mind and body seem to hum along in time with nature as the weather cools and the days grow shorter. 

Of course, the decor of the season is part what I love most!  After a thorough cleaning around the house this past 3-day weekend, I couldn't resist bringing out a few items and placing the first layer of fall decorations.

I haven't started on the front porch yet.  It is simply too hot and it's too early for pumpkins to arrive at the market!  But, soon.....very soon......

Have you started welcoming Autumn into your home?  Are you getting any cooler weather in your part of the world yet?  I would love for you to take a minute and leave a comment below - assure me that I am not the only one bitten this seasonal bug!!!




  1. You know I share the sentiment! Tonight at WalMart I noticed one bin of pumpkins, but I'm holding off for a few more weeks. However, it was a crisp 57° as I left to head home.

  2. love the punkins.. specially the one filled with candy corn and peanuts..

  3. You have a collection of beautiful pumpkins. I appreciate your visit to my blog. You asked about some scripted apples I posted. I wish I could say that I made them, but I bought them a few years ago. I bet, for someone who has a crafting gene (I don't), they would be easy to make. laurie

Capturing a Magical Light

After several gray days of frigid temperatures, along with a bit of ice and a flurry or two of snow, the sun shone brilliantly on New Year&...
