Seasonal Snippets...The Fruits of Fall!!!

Welcome Autumn!!!

Hello my friends...I hope that you've had a wonderful week!

I've spent the entire week getting ready for Autumn. Since Autumn is my favorite season...I really enjoy autumn decorating! For me...it's like an annual "rite of passage" or my way of ushering in the season!

"Seasonal Snippets"

My autumn decorating is finished...well at least for the most part! I'm still doing a bit of "tweaking" here and there! Hehe!!! My days have been consumed with deep cleaning...decorating...crafting...and more cleaning! I just haven't had the time to take photos and post...but I'm getting to it! In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share some "Seasonal Snippets"!

Yes...SEASONAL SNIPPETS!!!

*Def: Snippets - a small piece snipped off; a small bit, scrap, or fragment.

I'm thinking that "Seasonal Snippets" would make a great autumn blog party...a precursor or prelude of what is to come! Just a glimpse to whet the appetite!!! Hehe! So without further ado...

Seasonal Snippets...The Fruits of Fall!!!

Photobucket


All of the photos you will see are "snippets" of a few of the autumn vignettes that I have done at my place! This idea came to me when I took a close-up photo of an earlier vignette. A bird's eye view...with all the beautiful details!!!

It really is...all in the details"!!!

Ahhh...the beautiful deep, rich colors of autumn...the golden yellows...the vibrant oranges...the rusts...the scarlet reds...olive greens...and browns! These are all my favorite colors!!! Ohhh...and it's not just the colors but it's also the titillating textures!!! I can't go by an autumn leaf without touching it! Ohhh...and what about a fuzzy cattail or the beautiful texture of a pinecone? I love Autumn!!!

I have also been having some fun with photo effects...hope you enjoy!!!

Beautiful, gorgeous and lovely... but my favorite is the giant acorns. Perhaps they aren't giant, but I sure do love them. Have a blessed day and thanks for sharing the beauty.

Elaine said...

Chari....I love your fall snippets! What a cute idea. I've been deep cleaning and beginning to decorate for the season too even though it is still very warm here in Phoenix. It's gradually changing though...you just have to pay close attention and use your imagination! I'm thinking by decorating it will hurry up the process. lol

Your Fall snippets are beautiful. Autumn colors are so warm and pretty.

I haven't been able to decorate for a few years as we are redoing the house and when we do the work ourselves it is just so slow. When we are finished I am going to be a seasonal decorating maniac!!

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Greetings Chari ~I'm finally back from my summer long blogcation.
Now that summer has come to a close bringing a crisp breeze to the air...it definitely sets the mood for fall.
You've certainly captured that warm autumnal feel, through all your decor,(I took a peek back on your other fall vignettes too). You've provided such a warm setting that any guest would find welcoming.
Thanks for the lovely inspiration.

I've enjoyed catching up. Please stop by...I look forward to the return of your company.
Sweet wishes,
Sara
