Welcoming Autumn...

I adore Autumn, 
and the word Autumn sounds so much prettier than Fall, doesn't it?
Pumpkins, mums, apple cider and hooded sweatshirts, 
there is nothing about Autumn that I don't love.
Walks in the woods, leaves crunching beneath your feet,
pumpkin foods and comfort food.
Autumn also means a new...


Autumn means pretty Fall Wreaths...

A decorated front porch...

And pretty pumpkins scattered about the house.

Gentle reminders all over the house...

It's Autumn - the most beautiful time of the year!

I made this counted cross stitch many years ago,
when my boys were little and my hands allowed me to cross stitch,
and before I became obsessed with knitting.
It is a favorite of mine!

  4. Your home looks wonderful all decorated for Autumn, and yes I do like that better than Fall:) Looks like a fun list to complete, did you manage to get your summer list all done? Love your little cross-stitch, after I finished my nephews cross-stitching I haven't done anything else. That light plate is awesome, great find that was! Good luck on finishing everything on your Autumn to do list!

    It's beginning (fingers crossed) to be a tad cooler here. :)

  12. It looks like you're ready for autumn! The pretty wreath reminds me I need to see if last year's will work, or if I need to be in search of a new one. Love that pretty red teapot!

  13. I concur, lovely Debbie, that Autumn is a most beautiful word. Down here, the beautiful season of glorious hues is called Autumn. Your home is looking beautifully autumnal. The cross stitch is beautiful. I would imagine such a lot of effort went into this pretty. Love the red kettle sitting atop the stove. I can almost hear it whistling away.

  16. One great thing about autumn is the availability of Honey Crisp apples (for a reasonable price). They are the best. They are available year round but were recently $5.99/lb (or kg, not sure), but now they are $2.99.

  18. It really is a wonderful time of year, and it's been unseasonably warm here, which has been very, very nice.
    I just love your wreath. So pretty.
    xo.

  19. I love the gentle Autumn reminders that you have all over your home. I think that the fall colors are warm and inviting. I love Autumn; it is a favorite time of year.
    I really liked your bucket list. I do like how the two of you enjoy your life of adventure. Once upon a time I did cross stitches too; it was fun. I am hoping to get back to crocheting something wonderful. Blessings and hugs for you!
