Happy Fall!

Fall crept in and took summer completely by surprise. The sunny skies, the 80 degree temperatures, it seemed impossible the perfect days would ever end. Our weekend was alfresco dinners and catching up with friends, sunshine reflecting on the lake, and coffee sipped on the terrace. But today there's a chill in the air - bright pumpkins, cozy sweaters, tall boots and the crunch of leaves under foot can't be fall behind.


Wishing you a marvelously happy autumn! I know it's a favorite season for many. What are you most looking forward to?

Have a lovely Monday - back Wednesday with more on our Scotland and Iceland travels and the winner of "By Invitation Only" Sharing Scotland Giveaway. XOXO

  1. Fall is always a time to look forward to cozy fires, pots of tea, broths, stews, soups and then boots and cashmere sweaters. Love your sweet sketch.

  2. Your painting is perfect for Autumn! I look forward to the cooler days, last flowers in the garden, the brilliant clear blue sky, honking of the Canada Geese flying along their Connecticut River highway, warm sweaters and corduroy jackets, apple picking, pumpkins on the front door steps, blazing colors of red & gold leaves with a hint of green left on them and so much more. Autumn is coming early to NH this year, not sure if we're going to be able to hold back the "peak" until Columbus Day weekend when New England welcomes the "leaf peepers"
