"I'm ready for the cold winds to blow and make the leaves blush at their touch" sister Libby
My Sister wrote this line the other day and I thought it was so poetic and beautiful! I am enjoying the scenic drive around the lake with the oranges, yellows, and crimsons speckled about with God's paintbrush. Autumn here really is lovely!

Here are a few lovely quotes on the season...

~"October's poplars are flaming torches lighting the way to winter"- Nova Blair

~"Don't you just love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address."
-You've Got Mail

~"No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face" - John Donne

~"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band."
-George Cooper

Above is a vintage metal tulip chair that I picked up at an antique store around 3 years ago and finally got around to painting. I still need to spray the glossy top coat on it, but I think it looks bright and fresh. I love it with the orange mums!!

Off to an outdoor movie and bonfire at the church tonight. Hopefully someone is bringing the hot apple cider!


  1. I love fall too Bethany!! Is that your own photo of the autumn road? Just breathtaking!! Wow!

  2. Hi Melanie! I wish I could say that I took the picture. I actually found it on this blog through a google search:
