Welcome, October












Just a snippet of some favorite feels, smells, sights, and tastes of Fall.

It's October first, Friday, crisp and sunny out. I find days like this so exhilarating that I just want to be apart of them! The time has come, to enjoy some of the pleasures of mid–Autumn: warm cashmere and wool against leather, colorful orchards and apple picking, classic and cozy equestrian boots, layers of an abundance of Autumn colors in the home, tasty and charming centre pieces, warm, cheese fondues, pastoral scenes, and a few refreshing minutes in the morning with the doors wide open... Mmm, I can almost smell the aroma of apple pie, and... "Nothing tastes better than a baked apple." —Jane Austen, Emma

  20. Yes isn't it? I totally agree with you; the first and the last! But I am also really fond of the red and white playsuit - it's great!

    Such wonderfoul pictures! Spot on how October should look like. Makes me not at all sad about summer disappearing; instead I'm looking forward to all of the "fall-smells", cups of cocoa, and cosy cardigans.

  21. A lovely post. These images are gorgeous. The detail at the bust in the full length dress - how creative. And I have to agree with Jane Austin - Apple Pies are one of the best parts about fall baking. :)
