Fall Favorites & Familiars

 
 
 
 


 
 
 
Turning a leaf to October has me browsing around in my old autumn posts. I have a few favorite images here. 
 
 
 
 
 October is a month for old "familiars." While I'm not much for celebrating or decorating for Halloween, I am amused at how often this term comes up in classic literature, so I'm passing this on from Wikepedia:  In European folklore, "familiars" were believed to assist witches and cunning folk in their practice of magic. They would often appear as an animal (a witches cat).
 
When they served witches, they were often thought to be malevolent, while when working for cunning folk (don't you love that term?) they were often thought of as benevolent. The former were demons, the latter were thought of as fairies.
Now you know. . . .
 
 
 
 
 
 But I hope you just enjoy a few familiar scenes from fall. . . .
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 




 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 




 
 
 
 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
I hope all you cunning folk are enjoying a few familiar fall scenes too!
Have a great week ahead!

  1. Such lovely images, Jacqueline! I love that Autumn poem by Keats in the Edwardian diary. (And I think I've told you before I have that same brown and white transferware tureen! I keep my eggs in it on the kitchen counter.) All your 'familiars' are so pretty and warm. The brown and cream. The marbelized book covers. All perfect for Fall!

  13. Dear Jacqueline,
    Your October/Autumnal images are some of the most beautiful that I have seen and they are all your own too. I love them because they are no the usual orange and red images that we always see but of your own beautiful things.
    ...... and, many thanks for your lovely comment today. XXXX

  17. Gorgeous. Pretty curtains. Haven't seen those before (if you posted, sorry I missed them). On the previous post, I would love to have the duffle bag. I don't know what I'd do with it but I love blue one.

  23. This is all so lovely! I am so tired of all the mass produced fall decor and I have just been craving seasonal simplicity, vintage treasures and treasures from nature. I am enjoying looking back through your older fall posts for inspiration. Lovely and moving as I remember them from the first read years ago!
