I've been thinking about Fall...
no surprise, huh?
I know some of you enjoy Fall,
but you want to squeeze every ounce out of Summer.
When our kiddos are young and at home,
summer is a special time of adventure and relaxation.
But, I've always been the type of person that comes alive
in the crisp air of Autumn.
The blue of the sky is different,
the angle of the light has changed.
The trees get ready to put on a show,
that thrills my soul to experience.
Autumn rejuvenates me;
it gives me back the energy that the heat of Summer drains away
I thought I'd start off small today,
taking a step to add in some nature inspired elements.
The cloche I shared a week or two ago,
that was still "Spring",
re-emerged as an Autumn Bird Vignette under glass.
I kept the basic elements of the nest, flower pot and moss,
then exchanged the ivy for some Fall leaves and bits of dried Bittersweet.
The iron rabbit and eggs were replaced with my life-like birdie.
She looks like she's hunting for seed in the Fall garden.
Next up, I'll change out the white Geraniums for something more Fall,
probably some darker Hydrangeas.
...and find a table runner fabric that echos the earthy colors
that will soon be on our doorstep.
But for now, this little start on the change of season feels right.
We don't have to be covered in plastic pumpkins
to usher in the arrival of Autumn.
