A Hint of Autumn

The temperatures have cooled just a little bit. There is a nice breeze, the smoke from the nearby fire is blowing north instead of on top of us and the sky is crystal clear blue, the likes of which we have not seen in a while.

I love Autumn. This is my absolute favorite time of year. I have been watching so many of you begin your preparations for this soothing, mellow time of year. I've been inspired to join in a few weeks earlier than normal this year. Here is just a hint . . .

Not quite ready for the big "reveal" yet. but I'm getting there.

Don't forget! Marty at A Stroll Thru Life is having her Cloche Party is this Friday! 

Have a great day everyone!

Your squirrels are so cute! When I say fall my daughter thinks I mean Halloween and wants to put those decorations up! I'm not ready for monsters and goblins yet!

Oh wow, all of your fall decorations are just gorgeous. I also see a perfectly stunning white pumpkin arrangement in your beautiful scroll iron cloche. I just can't wait to see what all you do for the party. Hugs, Marty

I always loved coming to visit after you redecorated for the new season. It's still fun to see how you display everything. Love the candy corn!!

My gosh girl, you've already started decorating? Oh I'm so jealous. I guess I'm going to have to post my Fall decoration photos from last year and tell everyone that I'm on a roll too (not to be left out ya know! haha)
So sad about those fires, I do hope ya'll are not in any danger.
I'm so happy you are having this's going to be HUGE AND BEAUTIFUL! I see your badge on MANY blogs...isn't it exciting? I wish I could play but I certainly be knocking on those doors when the party starts! Well, not actually knocking, nosey people (like me) will just stop and leave a sweet comment! :)
everything vintage

ps...that little squirrel's butt is just too cute. Did he really mean to pose like that for you??? ;)

Hi Karen,
I see you have been busy putting out your fall things. My favorite is the white pumpkin.
Thanks for all your great ideas for my corner fireplace. I have another picture from the same series that I was considering for the opposite corner. We'll see.

Christine Edwards said...

What lovely things you've put out for fall. I'm anxious to get started Halloween decorating myself. :-)

Hey Karen,
I got all my Fall things out today. What a job. We did the outside early this morning and managed to get the inside done, as well.
Your preview looks wonderful. Can't wait to see more.

autumn is my favorite and we're starting to feel it here, too. mellow is such a good word to describe this time of year. you have some beautiful decorations for the season. you must have a huge storage area =)
