Holding on to Fall

It seems everyone in Blogland starts to get ready for the holidays the day after Halloween.

Not me.  Maybe I'm a procrastinator, but Fall is my favorite time of the year, and I want to hold on tight to every last moment.

So instead of pulling out my holiday decorations, I dried some hydrangea blossoms and put them in a basket on my Craigslist-find table in the dining room.

In front of my chippy shutter with the grapevine wreath.

I love  the faded blues and greens of the flowers.

And the way the sun hits them in the afternoon.

This is my time for making soups and stews. Lighting cinnamon-and-apple-scented candles in the late afternoon as the light begins to fade.  And nesting until things start to get hectic.

Which will be soon enough!
