I love Fall. I love living in a place where the days are still warm and sunny, but the nights are getting colder. It feels like the best of both worlds.
I always wish this season would last longer, but I know that colder weather is coming, and I’m trying to mentally prepare myself. So when I saw this picture on a blogger friend’s instagram feed, it gave me all the Fall feels.
It was a frosty morning at her house, and she found a beautiful little moment to share. Thanks, Ann, for inspiring me, and letting me borrow your photo!
Those deliciously colorful leaves, covered with a dainty sprinkling of frost, reminded me that cold mornings are part of renewal, and even when the leaves fall, that is a part of growth.
And while I love Fall decorations, I’m not a huge fan of orange. Don’t get me wrong, I love my pumpkin spice lattes just as much as the next girl, but I can’t bring myself to turn my house into a pumpkin colored Fall fiesta. So I usually decorate with muted, neutral colors. But this palette has inspired me to try unconventional Fall colors, like blue and deep red and frosty green. Nature isn’t limited to oranges and yellows in the Fall, so why should my house be?
I’m also thinking this palette would be gorgeous in a knitted scarf or sweater. Anyone out there into knitting or crochet? That’s so not one of my talents! (I think it requires a little more patience than I’ve got.)
Now I’m off to find or make a pumpkin or some kind of Fall decor in these colors. Happy Fall everyone! I hope it’s warm (but not too warm!) where you are, and your mornings are blessed with just the right amount of frost.
