i'm starving for fall

i'm like the hungry guy in the cartoon~everything he looks at morphs into a nice, juicy porter house.
the shoot factory
but for me, it's a hunger for fall colors while living in a permanent state of summer.
one of the things i've always loved about autumn is the contrast of the seasonal hues~
a sugar maple against a soft gray sky or fallen leaves on wet concrete.

these days i'm seeing it everywhere.

Hello from the Canadian beach! It's raining leaves in my backyard right now. Fresh. Crisp. Colour. Sweaters. Air in my lungs. Cool. Lovely.

M,

I adore orange. It was my sister's favorite color and when she went abroad I started to wear bits of it to remind myself of her. Well I got hooked. I love it. When I moved into my house I was set on making my living room with pops of orange. So at the moment it is chocolate brown, orange, and a sky blue with white trims and doors. I love it.

We are having a crappy day here in NY. It's really gray & dreary and tomorrow it's suppose to be in the 50s. So I'm trying to send a little fall your way.

I love that orange is so popular in decorating right now. Warm and cozy, bright and cheerful at the same time. Lots of great pics.
