Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. — Albert Camus

I enjoyed a few quiet vacation days last week to do some much-needed painting, cleaning, and even a little fall primping:

I couldn’t say good-bye to my beautiful anniversary roses from hubby. I simply pulled off the flower heads and added them to my basket of squash and smallish pumpkins. Love how the red makes it pop. Wouldn’t this be a beautiful color scheme for a wedding?  With a white wedding dress of course.

I had forgotten that I made this simple banner last fall. These little fellas are made of lace and yarn. No sewing. No fuss. Boo-tiful!

Don’t let the chilly wind scare you.  Now is the time to cozy up and let your heart fall a bit!
