Fall is here!

(Kim's everyday texture, multiply mode, 70% opacity)

Autumn officially begins this evening!
Portland has had a hot, dry summer,  and this weekend was more of the same.

Today a cooling trend is supposed to begin, 
just in time to usher in fall.
The weather report says, " it looks as though our hot and dry days are now behind us."

Bring it on!
I'm ready to make soup or stew and light some cozy pumpkin scented candles.
(Remind me I said this when I'm tired of gray skies and rainy days.)

In the meanwhile, welcome Autumn 2014!

  1. Elizabeth, You've created beautiful fall vignettes. Your pictures usher in fall with warmth and color. I love your attention to detail - in the way you arrange the items, your focus, and the wooden table as a backdrop. And those vintage scales . . . a touch of nostalgia. Gorgeous photos!

  2. Your images show the beauty of fall. I love the scale. We are feeling a chill in the air here in Ohio. It is nice to wear jeans and sweaters again. Hope you feel the chill of fall soon too.

  4. It's feeling like Fall here in GA, too! Love your photos. p.s. I was receiving your posts via email to my gmail account and one day I suddenly stopped getting them. Would you possibly know what I could do to get you back! I re-subscribed and it said I was already subscribed...any thoughts? Blessings~Cindy

    1. Cindy, you aren't the only person who's having that problem and I can't seem to figure out how to fix it. When I do I will let you know.

  16. Lovely shots. It is cooler here too due tot he gray skies. Unfortunately the humidity remains high. And i f it was not for gray skies our temps would still be 80 to 90. Hard to fell fall like in those temperatures.

    I did live in a place where we actually had fall and colored leaves and I miss that.

    1. Portland, Oregon was unusually hot and dry for most of spring and summer. We really need the rain, which is words you hardly ever hear where I live!

  18. Missing fall here in SoKan (ha ha , southern Kansas), we've had precious little fall weather...I think we get one cool-ish day on Friday, then it's back to the 80s! Love your pics, perhaps I can make it until it feels like fall :)
