red falling.....










happy october!

just having some fun with some photos that i took a few years ago.
i hope you don't mind seeing them again.
our leaves have not turned color
  yet....
but when they do,
i think i will collect some pretty red maple ones....
and pin them to my drapes again.
cuz i sure like how they look.

do you collect leaves in the fall?

i hope you are having an awesome autumnal day!

so lovely!
I am forever walking around our property gathering leaves & pulling out "the prettiest for pressing" from the just raked piles :-)

I am homesick now-it is official! I am originally from New England and transplanted in the south. I love it here, too, but autumn's beauty is like a passionate tango. I miss the Scarlet red Maples and how from miles and miles their glory blazes in a bright blue sky!

Gorgeous photos-I love autumn best :D

The red against the white - so pretty. It will be a while before we get some Fall color here also. I need to experiment with some of my photos, since I am not dong a very good job of taking new. :/
Enjoy your evening.

GLORIOUS CONTRASTS, erin! I am loving my white pumpkins this weekend, but we have not had our colors come alive yet. But here, I can enjoy the stark contrasts that I love so. Happy weekend my dear. Anita

The sunlight through your curtains splashing on those leaves brings such a happy feeling, Erin! :) What an awesome idea! Have a fabulous autumn week, my friend!

We don't have many trees with beautiful leaves, but I have pressed leaves that I've kept for years from living in New England. I love the way they look like they're floating.

Carole said...

I would be thrilled with anything you reposted. One of my favorites was this dried leaf idea.
Did you go to that vintage fair I have been reading about in Franklin? I hope so!
Sorry for lack of comments...the summer and fall have gotten away from me.
love ya
Carole

you are my biggest inspiration.
somehow I missed a few of your posts and just had a wonderful time going thru them all. it's not only made my day, I now will be on a mission to redecorate the house, paint furniture, take some pictures, and garden. inspired on every level, thank you!
