A Change of Seasons

Autumn is here and I like it !
Cool days, chilly nights, leaves on the ground, the scent of wood smoke in the air at night when walking home from a restaurant.
Soon enough it will be Winter and I will grumble now and then about the cold or the dreariness but right now, the crisp Autumn air is invigorating and smells good too !

When winter comes, the house gets it´s cold weather things on also.
An old gold colored Chenille throw big enough for 2 and a pup, goes on the sofa.
Down comforters come out of storage and into their pretty covers and onto the bed , which suddenly looks very large and puffy ! after a summer of looking sleek and smooth.

Rug shopping, window covers and some new mirrors are on the agenda.
Flea markets this weekend, perhaps an antique shop or two also.
Then to chase the chill away, a visit to a favorite Brasserie for dinner one night .

A Change of Seasons is good, shakes things up a bit, gets us out of our rut, our doldrums and gives us something to think about besides worries..

These are very lovely photos! :D
I feel calmer just by looking at them, which was something I really needed today after worrying about my final exams all week.. So thank you for that. :)
By the way, where were these taken if you say Autumn is coming?

Oooohhh that makes sense then, because I live in the U.S. where it is well, the opposite of autumn ;D
