Signs of Autumn

Thank you to all who participated in show and tell and also for your sweet comments on my cameos. We are starting to see some signs of Autumn around here...
Guess what I found yesterday? The first pumpkin of the season! I will share how I displayed it next week.

Benjamin knows how much I love acorns and he brought me this one he found a few days ago.

Lastly, a special thank you to Phillip for giving my blog an Autumn look. :0)


We made ourselves a castle
Once after school was out;
We raked the leaves together
To wall it all about.

We made a winding pathway
Down to the school-yard gate.
And there we worked with might and main
Until the day grew late;

Until one bright star twinkled
Above the maple tree,
And lights shone down on village street
As far as we could see.

We planned that every recess
We'd come out there to play,
But in the night it blew so hard
Our castle blew away.

I love the new fall look! Fall is one of my favorite times of year, and I look forward to reading and seeing your decorating ideas!

Charity said...

Beautiful new fall look. I am hoping to redecorate my blog soon as well as my house! (The house will probably come before the blog though, unless I can get hubby to help.. hmmm...) :)

Hi Kelli, can you believe I actually grew a pumpking this year (I have a terrible time with all squashes). It turned orange and it was big and I cut it off the vine. Two days later I went to pick it up and it fell apart. It was all soft inside! I was so proud of the pumpkin! Thank goodness I have lots of fake ones.


Terri said...

We must all be in the fall mood because I changed my blog this morning too. I love the new look!

Happy Fall.

Hi Kelli,
I love your new picture and this post. The poem made me feel like I was ten years old again playing in the leaves in my backyard. :-)
Have a great weekend. :-)

Your fall look is lovely. I also have my new fall look done. I love the changing of the seasons, which gives us an opportunity to decorate our blogs.

Your pumpkin is magnificient and I look forward to seeing how you display it. I will have the boys next Saturday and we will go to a U-pick farm near here to see if the apples and pumpkins are ready.

Take care, Kelli and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

I love your new Fall look, Kelli! Phillip really did a great job. If I look closely I can find a few signs of Fall in Virginia, too. That's okay, though, because it definitely looks like Fall in our home!! Am eagerly awaiting your Fall decorating ideas. Have a wonderful weekend with your family!

Love the fall banner! Autumn is my favorite time of year. Funny you should have the acorn, with the winds being 25-30mph with tropical storm Hanna, acorns were blowing out of the trees at warp speed. One hit my son on the head and bruised his forehead! My dad told me that an abundance of acorns meant a long bad winter was on the way...oh dear! Have a great weekend!

Carrie said...

Your new blog header is very appropriate for the fall season...very nice...

Linda said...

I love your new fall look and the September poem - it's wonderful!

Angie said...

Love the new look! I put a link to you on my blog :)

Lora said...

What a sweet acorn! And I love your new fall look, too.
I hope the apple cake turns out well for you if you make it. I actually made another one today. We had eaten so much of the other one that I needed another one tonight for friends:)

Love your new Fall look dear Kelli! I changed by blog to a Fall theme as well this morning:-) It's cool and rainy out today so it truly does look like a Fall day.

Beautiful blog Kelli! I get so many nice ideas for my home.

MyJourneyBack said...

Wow did you grow the pumpkin? We had a couple one year purely by accident. I tossed the pumpkins into the side yard and we actually got a couple the next year!
I love your new fall look. I am going to wait another week to do it myself. I just love the little black number!
BTW Daisy wrote about a new friend today. Come by and visit and if you haven't already found the blog I know you will love it.
Have a Great week.

Needled Mom said...

Yes, I guess it is that time of the year. The autumn look is lovely.

Your cameos were beautiful. I have always loved them as each is so unique.
