Happy Autumn ~


Delicious Autumn ~ My very soul is wedded to it…
and if I were a bird, I would fly about the Earth
seeking successive Autumns!
~ George Eliot



Endless skies
golden paths
&
turkey feathers ~




crunchy leaves underfoot
and pumpkin-spice-everything…




the comfort of my needle & thread,
wools & linen ~


"My favorite word is 'pumpkin'…
you are a pumpkin,
or you are not.
I am.

~ Harrison Salisbury


woodsmoke curling from our chimney
and the weight of heavy old quilts on our beds ~




 watching the stars at night
while listening to the owls in our deep backwoods…




holding hands to keep our hearts warm ~
wearing wool socks and boots.




"We are in for a perfect spell of weather now…
everyday luminous ~
every night brimmed with stars.
Picnics at noon,
supper by the applewood fire at night
and a walk in the cool moonlight before bed."
~ Gladys Taber

Wishing you all a magical Autumn my friends!
{please don't forget to vote for Notforgotten Farm again today}

Blessings from the Farm ~
 Lori

"I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion."

So pull up a big ol' bright orange pumpkin, and sit and stitch awhile today, Lori! Happy Autumn to you!

P.S. Voting done. :)

Happy Autumn to you! Summer's passing makes me sad every year now that I'm older. I get to see the grandkids more often in the summer because we have a pool. Now they're back to school and busy and I miss them and their crazy laughter as they splash me with cannonballs off the side. I love the fall, too, and I'll get in the mood soon as the weather cools more. I'm just starting to decorate and enjoying the nippy nights for snuggling. I voted again today - best of luck!
