Some love the hot lazy days of summer. Others prefer the cold winter snow. Then there are those who love the freshness of Spring. As for me, nothing compares to the Fall.
Earthy colors, crispy air, crackling leaves underfoot....
Apple cider, pumpkin pie, Halloween and Thanksgiving...
Hustle and bustle of school activities, bonfires, and home-made soups and stews..
Comfortable jeans and cozy sweaters, laughing jack o'lanterns and eerie movies...
The smokey smell of a stoked fire and curling up in warms quilts.
What's NOT to love about Autumn?
We can make spooktacular crafts....
Even just filling glass jars with dried fruit and pieces from nature's bounty is so simple, yet beautiful.
Black ravens and pinecones spruce up a dimly lit corner.
Even the kitchen gets some vintage Fall going! And thanks to Elizabeth from Creative Breathing, and other crafters, I'm now the proud owner of a gorgeous Halloween banner.
Isn't this the most? To say the least?!
If anyone out there recognizes your art work, feel free to post about it. I love to give credit where credit is due!
Elizabeth had gotten a group of women together to make this. Each contributed one letter. She put them all into a banner. When "E" was cleaning out her artroom a few months back, she very generously gave this to me, knowing how much I admired it.
The fun I had transforming vintage paper dolls into Halloween witches and that Haunted House! As they say in Jersey, "fugetabowdit!" (I'm originally from Jersey so I can get away with that!)
But one of my FAVORITE parts of Fall? Seeing my little boy snuggling up on the chair with a big bowl of hot popcorn (well...it WAS a big bowl of popcorn!)....
And walking into my bedroom to see my little girl also with a bowl of popcorn, quietly reading on my bed.
Hands-down, Fall is the most Scrumptious time of year!
