dear autumn...

dear autumn,

i am so happy you are finally here...

please bring with you,

so much beauty and color,

sweet smells and inspiration,

that i will drink in all your bittersweet moments,

until so satisfied and full,

i'll coast on my drunkenness

all through a creative winter
until your sister spring calls on us again.

and if it's not too much to ask,

don't forget your cooler days and crisper nights.

we are in deep need of relief, to help heal the scars from flooding and high heat.

i welcome your changes


trust you will come through for us.

you are most welcome here, dear autumn.

Egads! Can I come move next door so some of your creativity can rub off on me? Your neighbors probably refer to you as "that house". So stinking cute and original!!!! Do you get tired of hearing from me? I am on here a lot when I'm at the apartment. There's not as much to do here and no cable!

What beautiful words Erin, I almost started crying! I love fall - even though here it's not as crisp and quite as colorful ... you just have to look harder. I often think it's my favorite season but I guess I think that when spring comes too!

Lovely, lovely home.

Great introduction to fall. I love the way you use natural items to decorate with. We have some old gourds hanging up in the back from a previous seasons that I really need to get out.
If I do anything as cute with them as you did I'll post it.
