I've been in an Autumn mood this past week. I've been seeing the geese flying overhead to settle in the lake South of our little town. From there, they start their long journey to warmer climates for the Winter. I've noticed some of the underbrush turning colour and the sky is getting that golden, hazy look that it gets when August is coming to a close.
There is still quite a bit of warmth left for us. We usually get a gorgeous Indian Summer in September. It's the perfect weather for me. Warm, but not too warm. I can wear blue jeans, but still wear sandals and t-shirts. Even though the Summer is not done with us yet, my thoughts are as ever, turning to Fall.
I didn't get to the farmers market this weekend, but have been perusing my favourite online market Etsy this past week and found a few fun Autumn items.
From Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist, I bought some pretty postcards. Anyone who reads her blog knows that she has a wonderful eye for photography and decorating. I'm going to have fun sending these cards out this Fall!
I also ordered some Halloween tags from another wonderful blogger, Wendy, at The Halloween Tree. Wendy's Etsy shop is called Artful Gypsy and has some of her cool digital art listed.
And I couldn't pass up a print of this amazing painting of Marie Laveau, by Carolina at House of Eleggua. Amazing work, isn't it? She now sits in a lovely frame on my altar.
I think I did pretty well on the shopping end of things last week. Now to catch up on the gardening!
