Autumn has finally arrived, well at least it has in the Karma house. I realise that Autumn officially begins on the 22nd of September and ends 20th of December which clearly doesn’t work well for me. I therefore consider the 1st of September the start of Autumn and sometime in the middle of November Winter which then co-insides with Christmas.
With the brief introduction above my house has been decorated for Autumn! I sadly do not have as many decorations as Easter and no where near a boxful of Christmas decorations but what I do have helps put me in the spirit of the season.
In the middle of the week I bought three candles all which rather made me feel that they would be perfect for burning during this wonderful autumnal season. Three candles will not last long but its a good start.
I’m singing the only Autumn song I know which is one I learnt whilst at Primary School Called Autumn Days, Well I’m humming most of it as I only remember parts of the song with the most memorable being …Autumn days when the grassed is jewelled…No I mustn’t forget to say a great big thank you I mustn’t forget…And the taste of apple pie…
My front door is now again pretty welcoming with its beautiful autumnal wreath.
Flanking my fire are the lovely autumnal jars I recently bought from TKMax along with pine cones nested in between the stones.
I have used some wooden bark blocks which were decorations at my lovely sisters wedding throughout the ground floor level of our home.
One of my new candles and a seasonal mini wreath look perfect on the coffee table.
The down stairs toilet room now has touches of burnt orange.
A couple of years ago I made some little fabric owls which I have hung around the house.
My Autumn plates are ready to serve loved ones sweet treats.
With all my decorations proudly displayed I do look forward to cooler days, wearing boots and eating apples off my apple trees.
Happy First Autumn Timothy!
Happy 1st of September Friends!
