Welcome Fall

I'm sitting here at my desk with a few windows open and I can hear the rustling of the leaves blowing. It's an absolutely beautiful day. There is not a cloud in the sky. The sun is warm but I can feel just a hint of coolness in the breeze. 

Fall is here.

What I love about this time of year is the feeling of wanting all things cozy and warm. This month, sports schedules come to a rest, family dinners will once again be the norm, and cool, crisp evenings will allow us to cuddle up in our favorite quilts. 

I'll bring out the soup recipes once again and there will be plenty of opportunities for bonfires and s'mores. There will be football games to watch and birthdays to celebrate.

There is just something about this time of year that brings me to wanting all the comforts of home and being with the ones I love the most. 

I do welcome the days of Fall. 

I made the "Welcome Fall" using this technique.

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I love it, Christy. And I love your new header photos!

  2. love it and the new header! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I too love fall and all of leaves changing colors. However, we will miss that this year as we moved to Louisiana and we have been informed that the leaves don't change color here...but thank goodness it has gotten cooler though.
    Loving your welcome fall sign. I like how you used white and is that brown? Lovely.

  4. Happy Fall to you too! I had to create my own fall indoors and I love it. Still too much summer warmth and sun here in CA.

  5. You are entirely too crafty--it's pretty! Like the pics too on your header!

  6. Love your Welcome Fall sign! So pretty. I am very much looking forward to pulling out my soup recipes too! I was just thinking about that the other day. I think I'll be making our favorite pot roast soon too.

  7. I love how you changed your header to reflect this new sesaon. I love fall too. However, I live in the Phoenix area, and it's still HOT here. I'm longing for cooler weather so it will feel like fall

  8. Happy Fall !
    I love the way that your nation celebrate Fall Time.
    That I miss here in Germany. It´s a wonderfull time in the year full of colours, emotions and tastings.
    Thanks for your Blog so I can participate of the Fall Feeling

  9. Christy, I do welcome fall. Wonderful time of year and I totally agree with each thing you listed - longing for each one of them. We have had some really great weather here in MS. And have already got to enjoy some of the list. I always love dropping by your place.
    Thanks for sharing,
