Amber Moods

 
 

I sometimes think of Milton's poem, and "amber-dropping hair" with the gold and russet leaves of autumn. Billowing gently from the autumn branches, as though nature lets down her hair before she sleeps, the slow-motion shower of color always strikes me with a mood I feel no other time of year. The amber-colored mood of November. . . .
 
 
 
 
 We are huddled closer to the flame of home fires today. Wishing safety and comfort for many still left in the cold and devastation. Hoping for a speedy return to light, warmth., and peace of mind.
 
 
 
  
We have spent the weekend enjoying savory meals with friends old and new, walks along the river photographing the golden cottonwood trees, and conversation by candlelight late into the night. The extra hour gained by "fall back" could not have been better timed. . . .

Keeping the home fires burning. . . .

So lovely! I like the ambers and whites in your home. I just lit 2 candles as the day is growing shorter at 4:00 pm. I don't like the time change and I didn't sleep any longer either! :) I like your fireplace burning and the cozy chair to compute from. Beautiful.

Hi J,
As I sit here wondering how it can only be 6:15, I am warmed by your golden glow... Gorgeous! COZY!
Hugs,
Bella

Jacqueline....you have no idea how you inspire me. I even bought an old delapidated table from someones old barn because of one of your vignettes. I absolutely LOVE how you put things together. I've decided I want to move to your house... it would be like living in a perfect world. Your photos are all SO gorgeous and some feel so ethereal to me. I love your fall. It makes home even dearer to me.

Love your candlelight and brown transferware! Both say "Fall" to me. Your living room looks so cozy for the cooler season. Have a wonderful week.
