Another Beautiful Fall weekend
My idea of fall is more like weather in the 70s where it’s cool enough to wear a long sleeved shirt but you can still be in a pair of shorts. Not Ideal for everyone I’m sure but since I’m always cold that’s my ideal. This weekend was just that.
Each season brings with it so much beauty and inspiration. So I thought that I would share with you my 5 favs for fall.
- Taking a walk through the leaves on a warm fall day
Yesterday was a perfect day for this – we live right near a beautiful park with gorgeous walking trails along the water.
2. Picking up leaves – no I still haven’t out grown this
When we were walking there was plenty of leaves to choose from but I found my self drawn to the red ones – so bright and vibrant I couldn’t help put pick up 3 or 4 to bring home with me.
3. A hot cup of coffee out on the deck in the cool fall air
there is just something magical about drinking something steaming hot in the cool crisp air that just gives you such a cozy feeling
4. Reading a good book
I love nothing more than on a cool rainy fall day than to hunker down with a book – I especially like to re-read books that I have already read but love – the feel of the worn soft pages is like nothing else – just so familiar and comforting
5. Fresh baked bread and pastries
I truly enjoy baking in the fall and love the smell of warm apple bread fresh from the oven – but when I don’t have time to bake there is a little pastry shop not far from us with delicious pastries that my husband and I enjoy warmed up with a hot cup of coffee of course.
Looking over my 5 favs for fall I can see the “art” inspiration in each one. – Texture, colors, layers all just waiting to be added to my art journal with little bits and details written in.
If you haven’t seen my latest Autumn Themed art journal spread have a peek here it is full of autumn goodness.
Share your fall favs in the comments below I would love to hear what everyone else enjoys this time of year!!
