autumn love

Oh how I love autumn.
Just overnight the leaves got their cue to turn and my woods are a subtle wash of golds, rusty oranges, and mossy greens. In a few days they'll brighten and then they'll fade again, leaving the brown oaks with their lichen-encrusted trunks to be the focus.

I love the golden light, the smell, the crinkly leaves, the jeans with flannels, all of it. I don't even mind that fall is the precursor to winter, which seems to be the longest season of all here in Minnesota. Hey, winter is alright, it just overstays its welcome, that's all.

The next few weeks are going to be busy at work with fundraisers, kids events, and upcoming shows, but I aim to make time to do some stitching, do some baking, and get out in the rustling leaves.

In the meantime, I've made the last of this season's acorns, just two sets. They're in the shop today.

Have a glorious day, all.

You are absolutely correct, Winter is OK, it just stays to long! Perfect and your acorns are beautiful :)

What a lovely post. I love Autumn as well. It is such a gift..the colors and the glory of it all. We do not have the winter that you have, but I do so love the changes. It's all good. Thank you.

I love fall for all the same reasons, and perhaps even more because in my area it doesn't NOT lead into a long, cold, snowy winter (I lived in north-central MN for one winter; that was enough!).

That post will put anybody in a good mood, beatiful!
