The Magic of Autumn

The rain and wind are outside my door. The feelings to nest and snuggle down into a warm thick comforter are wooing me.

Magical touches . . .

This time of year is for sunflowers.

And sweet pumpkin fairies that bring a smile to your face.

May your autumn days be filled with the wonder of flying leaves.

"The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you
like the leaves of Autumn."
- John Muir

Those little pumpkin fairies are so cute. It is the time for sunflowers!

I was just thinking about you yesterday. What a wonderful surprise to see your comment this morning. I have missed chatting with you.

I hope you'll be feeling better soon and up enjoying the crisp breezes outside in the air.

How are YOU??????

Your header is lovely and your home is as beautiful as ever. It is Friday, I am home and the wind is howling outside, but our temperatures are unusually warm; 90 degrees for the last 3 days! THIS IS MINNESOTA. It is supposed to be at least 20 degrees cooler! But the colors are being wisked away to swiftly and so we have winter to look forward to. I am hoping that I can upload my post tonight...last week I had such a hard time!

Love the new header! Isn't it amazing that we feel the need to nest this time of year?

Those pumpkin fairies are adorable and love the new header. Your chair is fantastic!

I am always excited to see a post from you Nancy. I love your Fall touches around your home. Always love any photos of your beautiful home! And I always enjoy the quotes too.
I fell hard for the lovely 1820's dancing shoes you unearthed. Such an amazing find.

It was wonderful to read the sweet message you left for me today.

I love the Fall, and as usual you have a wonderful flair to capture any theme you post. My sabbatical is over and I'm back at it full swing, so much so that I missed everyone's b-day, including my own (I'm not kidding).
Give our love to everyone.

You always do such an amazing job with your furniture. I'm glad to see you coming back every week. Well, Such a wonderful collection and plan to buy one of my new home. Your collection is very new and best for modern homes. It seems vintage looks.

As always an amazing ... elegant ... lovely post

Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year ...

Clear crisp days ... cool evenings ... just enough to snuggle with a warm throw ... a cup of tea and a good book or magazine ...

Hope this finds you well ... thank you ... for being you and for your support and friendship through the years ...
