Hello there, Friends!~
And welcome to my annual ‘autumn gathering.’ It’s an online event I’ve been doing for several years now where I release autumn themed art and celebrate my favorite time of the year— autumn!
Ah, I’m so glad you’re here! Get yourself a cup of coffee, come sit, and lets chat! It’s been a busy summer, hasnt it? But there’s a change in the air….the summer is waning….its almost time for the season of cozy— of walks during brisk mornings when leaves swirl around….of pumpkins on doorsteps, the sound of marching band practice in the air….doesn’t it just make you want to smile and do a little twirl (go on and twirl, I wont tell!)
I have several NEW original paintings in my shop— shown above! You can find “Brigid of Ireland”, “Ellerie’s Autumn” and “Autumn Comfort” all listed in my shop! I also have brand new prints of Brigid of Ireland available.
I know that technically, it is still summer. But it is also September. And September is autumn. And by that logic, I say bring on pumpkin everything and all the beautiful golden tones of the season. I can’t think of autumn now without remembering my very first trip to New England. I was able to stay with my friend Alyson, who wrote the blog New England Living and now does The Strange and Unusual Podcast. Together with another friend, Emily, we traveled the beautiful winding roads of New England…..I was introduced to Dunkin’ Donuts (and was always getting the hot cider! Was I just being contrary? Or, more likely, I was 6 months pregnant and that’s what sounded good!)
To me, New England is the where the soul of autumn resides, although it has been so much fun to write about summer in New England in my latest blog series— and I hope you enjoyed that! But now….Oh now! It is TIME for AUTUMN!
All you have to do to win this sweet autumn girl is to leave a comment! And the winner will be selected next week! Easy enough, right?!
And if you’re also a lover of autumn and would like to take part, lets have a blog stroll, shall we? Below you’ll find a linking tool where you can add a link to any autumn themed blog post or social media post you’ve published! Follow the directions below and join us! We can all visit eachother, with coffee and cider and all the pretty knitting things!
And before you go, do visit the etsy shop to see whats new! There are new prints and originals and I still have some calendars! Can’t promist how long I’ll have them, but there are still a few left looking for homes!~
Until then, thank you for your visit!~
and TAKE JOY!~
