Fall brings many changes:
trees blaze amber, crimson and persimmon,
temperatures begin to drop.
For many of us, thoughts turn to hearth and home.
We long for cozy evenings by the fire,
pots of soup simmering on the stove,
good books to lose ourselves in,
snuggling under a bevy of blankets.
In honor of Halloween, I brought in a couple bits of orange, a color I have never used in my house before. Black, grey, and cream keep it from being overbearing.
My reading corner gets into the game, with iron and orange accents.
The buffet in the dining room boasts a collection of earthy accents and a spooky mirror, perfect for Halloween.
Pyewacket sits next to the coffee table centerpiece. She blends well with any decorating scheme!

This fall has been particularly busy. We have traveled to Chicago to take Sadie to puppy boarding school, where she is going through an intensive training program. She comes home next week. We have also traveled to Hot Springs, Arkansas, where we discovered the bliss of soaking in the thermal baths there.
And we have also been doing some serious house-hunting. We made an offer on an adorable cottage that I have fallen in love with. Please keep your fingers crossed that the deal goes through.
Wishing you peace and wellness as the fall progresses.
Until next time...
