It isn’t quite fall yet.
But I thought I’d throw in a little tease of fall vignette anyway. Just to give a hint of what’s to come.
The fall season officially begins on September 22. We have nearly a month to go.
But I received my Etsy order yesterday. I ordered from one of the Etsy shops I featured last week, Cotton Ridge Emporium. And I’m very pleased with my order.
So this photo is in the kitchen, obviously.
Rich vibrant colors of fall:
I love the rich color of fall leaves. The dark browns and golds in this vignette represent those colors.
I wanted things simple in my kitchen because I don’t have a lot of counter space in my apartment.
This is a nod to fall using kitchen items I also use on a regular basis. Cutting boards, soaps, dish detergent, and hand cream.
And all the lives we ever lived and all the lives to be are full of trees and changing leaves. – Virginia Woolf
Tuesday Morning shopping:
I haven’t been out and about recently. But last month I found the round cutting board, the candle holder, and the yellow-gold set of soaps at Tuesday Morning.
I figured I could always use the soap and cutting board and candle holder, no matter the time of year.
It’s always good to find things that are not completely seasonally related. Then you can use them all year long.
Symbolic meanings for fall/autumn:
Ancient cultures, science, and astrology have associated many aspects of this beautiful season to human life. These symbolic associations are powerful reminders that Mother Nature has an incredible influence on our lives.
The Greek philosopher Heraclitus once said: “The only constant is change.”
This time of year is a reminder that our surroundings are always changing and evolving. It is a nod to the impermanence of life.
And a reminder to savor and embrace the present.
