Happy October!

It’s a chilly, misty morning perfect set up for a lovely day.  As I write this morning, the house is filled with delightful scents of the season, ginger, cloves, cinnamon … a pumpkin dessert is baking in the oven, soft music is playing, Autumn candles have been lit …

I’m thinking a lot of you, if you’re like me, have already searched out for the perfect pumpkins to decorate outside. Pretty white mums in old pails have been hung on a white picket fence … now a huge bouquet of branches with leaves needs to be placed in the front garden and I’m ready for Autumn.

It’s such a delight when out walking through the neighborhoods to see pumpkins, cornstalks, leaves already being raked and piled in the yards, the scent of fireplace smoke … deliciously wonderful!

It’s also a time when I gather supplies for some creative projects. Tags and papers to wrap pumpkin breads to give my friends to start with. Adding seasonal touches to the entry. A fun felt ball garland was just added to our kitchen window. Small touches are sometimes all that is needed.

Whatever is on your Autumn agenda … have fun and embrace this wonderful time of year.

Wishing each of you a happy week!
