Autumn Inspiration


If I caught the colors of Fall in a bottle, it would make me smile during all the other seasons.


Whether I am taking rides down country roads,


or decorating around the house, I am inspired.

Pumpkins, apple picking, and Hydrangeas, the colors of Autumn.

I brought these in from outside before we had our frost.  I just love how many different varieties of Hydrangeas are everywhere this time of year.



The welcoming colors of Fall invite everyone to enjoy the glorious scenes around us.  Until the season ends I will memorize all of it's beauty.


I had the pleasure to taking Rick's girls to enjoy the beautiful Fall day on Saturday.  I had to share some photos with you.  They are three and five and as sweet as they are beautiful.


I am joining Mary from Little Red House for Mosaic Monday today.  Wishing you a beautiful Monday and happy Autumn Inspiration.

Your colours of autumn are an inspiration to keep them in a corner of my mind to bring out during the dreary days of winter. Maybe like sunbeams, you can capture them in a jar?

What a great thought! Fall is my favourite time of year - I feel energized and capable of anything!

Karen, I feel exactly the same way as you describe in that first line, so much so that most of my home is decorated and painted in those colors even though I live in South Florida. Sigh...autumn certainly has captured a piece of my heart.
And speaking of capturing a piece of my heart, Sting is my favorite artist. Oh my goodness, his music always makes my heart leap. Actually, it always pierces it profoundly, almost always bringing me to tears. That is the work of a gifted artist indeed. I must stop here today and linger just to listen. So glad you shared it along with these beautiful pictures.
Wishing you a lovely week.
XOXO's,
Marcia

Good morning beautiful friend!

Your collages and inspiration are always full and beautiful. You are the epitome of grace.

Speaking of which, I need at the moment. I have a technical question and my new blog post is affected by some glitches that I do not understand.

I wonder if you could help me?

I am going to email you. Anita

I literally can not get over the beauty, Karen! It is breathtaking. Thank you for taking us along with you. Particularly your poor little leaf deprived friend in Florida. In the fall, I want to be a New Englander.

Thinking of you and hoping all is well in your world...

XO,

Sheila

Gorgeous photos Karen!

Beautiful, gorgeous Fall images that just make me swoon. I LOVE Fall and yet where I live we have to drive a ways to get even a glimpse of its splendor...when it eventually happens! Unfortunately we also don't get the cool crisp, hot apple cider days for some time yet. So I will enjoy it vicariously through these images and your lovely words.

Those photos are just gorgeous! No wonder we love fall. Right now the yellows and reds of our maples are gone, but the burgandies and golds of the oaks are a darker, more muted beauty. And I love the stripes in the fields that are caused by the harvest of soybeans. So beautiful. Thanks for your lovely post today!
