Happy Fall!

Follow link to purchase file at Cutters Market.

Wishing all my faithful blog followers & friends a very beautiful and happy fall season!

This was what autumn looked like at our very first home 25+ years ago in Indiana.
I'm eagerly waiting to see the fall colors here at our new home in Tennessee!!

Beauty (and a beast)

Hubby and I took a walk the other evening and enjoyed the beautiful scenery.

Then we looked around and spotted this bit of beauty.
Come to find out this is the Tennessee State Wildflower - the Passionflower. A bit more research turned up the fact that having this recognition was not without it's controversy! (Read more here - who knew?)

Walking along a bit further we came across this

Would you like a closer look? . . .

I don't care for that smile on his face - do you? Snapped a couple pix, stepped around him and he didn't stick around to see us on our trip back home (can't say I was disappointed!!)

You just ever know what adventures a day may bring!!

Name that Moon

Did anyone have a chance to enjoy the bright and beautiful full moon the first part of the month?
It was so bright it was actually shining through the curtains just begging me to take notice! It was even bright enough to get some pretty good photos.
Doing a little "surfing" I found that each monthly full moon has a name and a meaning (mostly from Native American lore). September's full moon is called the Corn Moon (you can find out more at the
Farmers' Almanac site).
Can you guess which month has the Worm Moon?

(I'm calling my photo Tennessee MoonShine!)

Today's share is a fun frame for some of your beautiful fall photos.
Love this photo, it is of DD#1 when she was 4 {only 20 short years ago :) }.
Go ahead - jump in!!

Leaf Quotes:

*Parents are often so busy with the physical rearing of children that they miss the glory of parenthood, just as the grandeur of the trees is lost when raking leaves. ~ Marcelene Cox
*Deeds are fruits, words are leaves. ~ English Proverb

Autumn's a Coming!!

Fall is in the air. Even though the temps here are still very warm there is that subtle hint that a change in the season is imminent. I always find it hard to say good-by to summer and the unhurried freedom it implies (although the reality is usually anything but unhurried!)

To help me prepare my head for autumn I worked on converting my fall files (along with a few others) to svg. The Halloweeen files are available individually or in the All Things Spooky collection. Here's a peek at some . . .

I also designed a brand new dimensional file for fall. This is an easy to cut file AND it is easy to put assemble. It would be a great project to work on with your kids/students/grandkids! You could make it in several sizes and patterned papers for a fun fall display!

File now available for purchase at Cutters Market!

Autumn Quotes:
*Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn. ~Elizabeth Lawrence
*Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~Albert Camus
*Winter is an etching, Spring a watercolor, Summer an oil painting and Autumn a mosaic of them all. - Stanley Horowitz

How I spent my summer vacation. . .

Wow, did your summer fly by as fast as mine did?

I'm going to have to take a few minutes to sit down and give some serious thought to how I DID spend my summer!

This past weekend at the same time we were sending our younger DD back to college our house was filled with family visiting from up north. Was a nice way to put an exclamation mark on the season and make plans for upcoming celebrations.

Hope this file can assist you in collecting your thoughts and remembrances from a past summer and/or vacation!

File now available for purchase at Cutters Market.

*A life without love is like a year without summer."-- Swedish Proverb
