Embracing the Autumn

A new background to help me deal with the fact that, yes, it is the Autumn, the trees are going to sleep and it is dark and miserable. I think I need to move south of the Equator for these next few months - summer is over; I'm a big girl I have to face it. Autumn is here.

This conker feel from a tree recently and almost killed me (evil nut). Very beautiful but so violent - why?

  1. It was being radio-controlled by the CIA.

    Love the new background.

    I hope you enjoy autumn soon - it can be pretty fleeting, have fun kicking some leaves around, watch a bonfire, make chocolate brownies for Hallowe'en.

  2. The CIA but I thought I'd lost them, darn it! Thanks for the heads up!
    Thanks for liking the new background. I have kicked leaves (love that), watched many a wood stove fire (mismerising), but the brownies, now THAT is a fabulous idea xxx

  3. We have evil nuts here too - putting the rubbish out is a fine art, run the guantlet at your peril.
    Great Autumn theme!

  4. Hi Carrie
    I like the new seasonal look, so glad you chose white for the background, I hate black or dark backgrounds, depressing and too hard to read. It's good you kept your lucky horseshoe header, I love it. Have a lovely Autumn. x

  7. Very nice background! I almost used the same one but it didn't match with my Fall picture. I would love to live in the south where it's warm all the time. Actually I lived in Florida for a few years and loved it.... Moved back North for family.

  8. allotofveg - evil nuts, who would have thought it!! Is anyone safe??

    Maureen - yep, time for a change but I'd never get rid of my horse shoe even though it's in a different place and had to painted to stop it rusting away. I HAVE to have a white background, I find it so hard to read blogs otherwise.

    Flighty - thank you xx

    Selkie!!!! My new blogger girl. I changed the background only yesterday.

    Ellie Mae's Cottage - thank you for both your comments x It was because of you I started using the backgrounds, we have great taste! I can't believe you lived with year long blue skies and the sun on your face, then gave it up!!! Ah well, family is important I suppose.

    Hugs to you all, thanks for dropping by.
