Hurry, autumn, hurry. . .

I decorated the front door and entranceway to my little apartment cottage for autumn. . .


Autumn is my favorite season and so I put out pumpkins and autumn flowers to celebrate the season. . .




My neighbors may think I have completely lost it. . .decorating for autumn when it is one hundred degrees outside. . .I will let you in on a little secret. . .I don't worry so much what anyone else thinks about me now that I am entering my "autumn season" of life. . .If it makes me happy, then I do it!!!






"Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers, we more than gain in fruits."~Samuel Butler

HI Vicki!
Thanks so much for dropping by my blog. I agree that Autumn is so special and probably my favorite too. Although I do love Springtime so much... and there is Winter, because my birthday is in January. And I have to say that I've enjoyed summertime so very much this year. So maybe I can't make my mind up!
Have a great day.
Holly

Hello my friend,
Happy early fall to you! The fall colors are so pretty and I love the cold weather we have in Ma. But we are still humid and I'm not pulling out the sweaters just yet!
Fall is in the air!

Vicki, I am in total agreement with you...It isn't easy to not care what others think, but it gets easier as we mature and become wiser. And in growing older we never have to age.

I just love your Autumn decor, and who cares if it's 100 degrees outside, you are receiving what you desire before it manifests - THAT makes it manifest quicker! (Mark 11:22-24)...col..I love it.
It's still 100 here, too, but I just keep that beautiful cool word of September in my thoughts and on my lips and think of cool breezes.

Oh, the painting photo of the gypsy is perfectly lovely...you always find the best pictures to express your thoughts.

Sending you love and hugs,
Marianne xox
