when the leaves turn

Autumn always makes my heart ache a little. I start to feel that bittersweet pang, the cross between grief, from summer's ending, and longing, for cozy cooler days. The brilliant warm colors of autumn leaves are like jewels hanging from the tree boughs. 

All this color and longing brings inspiration for the home. I love seeing pumpkins, leaf garlands, and corn husks adorning door steps and table tops. Every year, these visual treats make me smile, as much as a cup of hot cocoa, or a mouthful of my favorite comfort foods might. 

Happy autumn to you all!
