Around Here …

Around Here …

… it finally looks and feels like fall! After a very warm September and lots of rain during the first week of October, the sun is bright, the air is crisp, and the leaves are turning, red, yellow and orange.
Here’s a peek inside our home, as we celebrate this glowing, warm, cheerful and cozy season:

Welcome, friends!

This print was a wedding present almost eight years ago … I take it out each fall and remember, with fondness, that special day back in October 2001.

My newest addition is this pumpkin. The Scripture verse totally sold me; I had. to. have. it!
Now that it looks and feels like fall, we’re supposed to get a dusting of the white stuff on Saturday. I’m sure it won’t last, but I feel like crying out, “Oh, fall, please stay around a bit longer. We’re just beginning to enjoy you!”
No matter what, it’ll be fall in our hearts for quite some time, as we still have lots of fun, autumn plans in mind, like apple picking, pumpkin carving, saints dress up … And I can’t forget about making applesauce, apple crisp and pumpkin bread! Perhaps a craft or two …
What are some of your fall traditions? And have you brought a bit of orange, red and yellow into your home yet? However you enjoy the season, may the Lord bless you with a heightened spirit of gratitude and joy, because above all else, this season is all about His magnificent splendor and bountiful generosity. At least it is to me =)
Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Beautiful fall stuff!
    I love fall too, actually, come to think of it, I like all seasons here except the last 3 months of winter!!

    I love the smells of the fall candles and love burning them in the fall! I also love to make pumpkin bread and apple pie and crisp! Raking, campfires, fall walks, love it!

  2. all of your fall stuff is so pretty, sarah. i esp. love your red door. i have always wanted a grey house with white trim and a red front door. a girl can dream, eh?
    and snow already, huh? goodness, we won't have anything like that till probably december (if we are lucky). it doesn't really get cold here till january.
    i also loved your exult in monotony post. i tried to leave a comment the other day but couldn't. blogger wasn't liking me for some reason.

    well, hope you have a lovely weekend dear, sweet lady!

  3. Regan beat me to it, but the red door – I'd buy a house just for the door being red. Silly, huh? Love your decorations. I love Fall. Kinda hard to pull off in HI, but I have party lite tea light leaf shape holders out and am burning a Yankee pumpkin spice candle . . .

  4. I love your pumpkin with that scripture too!! As well as the Autumn Love poem.
    This is definitely my favorite season of the year. I say it all of the time, but I wish it lasted as long as winter! (Supposedly it does, but winter seems as long as the 3 other seasons together to me.) We have been blessed with an amazingly beautiful Autumn. Mild, crisp and such glorious colors everywhere.
    Thanks for inviting me over to peek around your home this time of year! Simply lovely!
