Ode to Fall

My Ode to Fall

Hi folks! Last week has been so hectic with my oldest daughter leaving for college for the first time and back to school for the youngest. We are still trying to get back to our regular schedule. Fall is approaching fast with cooler evenings and falling leaves!

  Before I go any further with this post I would  like to take the time to express my heartfelt thanks, appreciation, and gratitude to these lovely ladies for featuring my Tuscan Foyer and Kitchen herb station in their wonderful weekly parties! I am truly humbled to be included among the beautifully inspiring ideas and projects found in this land of blog! It lifts my spirit and warms my heart! To my wonderful readers, I just would like to add that do stop by and visit these links if you are looking for some inspiration or would like to share your very own. You won't be disappointed!

Thank you, ladies! 
You make me smile :)

Living in the northeast with long months of winter, summer is  the most coveted season. But I have to say that fall is my favorite season, short though it may be! At this time of year, I love adding a touch of fall to my home decor.

The spectacular colors of autumn speaks a language of its own:

To me, fall is in the traditional colors of the mums:

in the vibrant color of the pumpkins:

it's in the rusty hues of the faded and withered leaves strewn on the lawn:

and the woodsy smell of the pine cones:

Fall is in the cool crisp air as I take a brisk wall on a perfect autumn evening:

  and watch the sun set over the orange, red, and yellow trees:

and pathways lit with enchanting fall luminaries to welcome the twilight hour:

Fall  mason jar luminaries

crafted from simple household items

Brings warmth and color and light on an outdoor fall porch.

They look so pretty all lined up on my porch steps

I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit! I love hearing from you and enjoy reading your sweet comments. 
Happy fall to all!

~ Hugs, Poppy~
