Falling Leaves

Oops! What bad bloggers we have been recently.Holidays, illness and just plain laziness I think. There has been much talk on the Streets recently, how mojo is missing from our creative sisters. People are doing anything but scrapping - even cleaning!

So to help get us all back on track and to prepare for the welcome return of our monthly crop this weekend (challenges are posted throughout the weekend and you can win scrappy prizes paper or digital) here are some seasonal quotes.

Autumn.. the year's last, loveliest smile.
....William C. Bryant
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf's a flower.
....Albert Camus
No Spring nor Summer Beauty hath such grace As I have seen in one Autumnal face.
....John Donne
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
....George Eliot


Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.
....Stanley Horowitz
For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.
....Edwin Way Teale
Listen! the wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!
....Humbert Wolfe


Come said the wind to the leaves one day,
Come o're the meadows and we will play.
Put on your dresses scarlet and gold,
For summer is gone and the days grow cold.
....A Children's Song of the 1880's


October's poplars are flaming torches lighting the way to winter.
....Nova Bair
Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.
....Elizabeth Lawrence
Every leaf speaks bliss to me,Fluttering from the autumn tree.
....Emily Bronte
By all these lovely tokens September days are here,
With summer's best of weather and autumn's best of cheer.
....Helen Hunt Jackson


To help you along with these I have a little freebie for you.... A Leaf String! Some pretty leaves pinned to a string.

Just right to grace your LO's this autumn.



Find it here for a few weeks or so.
