Fall's here!!

 Fall just might be my favorite season.  I love it.  I love the feeling in the air, the clothes, the boots, the smell of the wet leaves right now (been raining a lot) and I love that cool tinge of excitement it gives me every year...  Here are a few pics that call it to mind..

{Mm mm mm!! Stone Soup "how to" here}


{Christian last Fall...  me behind the camera: " Hold the pumpkin!  Smile!!  Good boy.  Yeah now put it on your head! Say cheese!".. poor kid}

I can't get enough of it.  Today's perfectly gloomy weather has me in a thoughtful mood. 

So, I'm off to eat soup and think ;) ;)  hahahah

Have a great day!!

I love autumn too and it must be lovely where you are with all the leaves etc. And of course that front door of yours is 'Pumpkin Orange' !! Perfect for the season. I have often toyed with the idea of painting my front door (currently dark maroon) a different colour for each season. What do you think?

Gretchen O. said...

There is something about a good bowl of soup that helps me think too:)

The pics are great...little ones and pumpkins are some of my favorite photos.

Have a nice time contemplating over your bowl:)

Living It At Home said...

Loving Fall right now too! Your new profile picture is stunning! You look so very beautiful...love the beads you are wearing, very earthy! Your home looks lovely and your son is adorable! I just did a post on "A Cozy Fall Day At My House". I was trying to capture how truly cozy and happy my home feels right now with all the pumpkins and fall decorations. I also did a post on those felt bats too. I made them and decorated the front of my house with them. I love that decoration, it is one of my favorites! I would love it if you stopped by and let me know what you think! Thanks, Jamilyn

Lovely lovely fall. We'll be seeing it in another month or so...or so...

Love all of the images. Think honey bear is my fave!

Lucy said...

Thanks for a taste of fall. I miss it ohso very much.

Melissa said...

I love the images from your home-- so lovely! My favorite month, too.

Heather Ritchie said...

I love all of your images. They definitely provoke the feeling of fall for me. The bats flying across the doorway is so cute I think I'm going to have to do that myself. I'll let you know if it happens and post pictures. Have a great day!

.heather.

You really take wonderful pictures of you own home!

Carol@SofasandSage.com said...

Your new picture is great -- I swear you look the same in a picture as how you come across in words on the page. I must confess I am a summer girl, but I do love indoor cooking best, especially soup! How's the fabric line coming? Do keep us posted :)

Fall. Crimson leaves underfoot. Wonderful! You've captured it in your house.

I just love the orange shades in that moody painting on your mantle. And your new portrait is awesome! You look fantastic.

Beautiful photos, however hate to put a damper on the Season but how I detest Fall. :) Up here in Canada living in the snow belt region it means Winter, plunging temps and layers of clothing are not far behind. Arghhhhhhhhh!
