The Magic of Autumn

Pumpkin spice candles ...

Brisk mornings ...

Nippy nights ...

Leaf-pattern quilts ...

to warm whatever guests the season brings ...

Brilliant colors by day ... (yes, we get some color in Texas)

Amber hues by night ...

The promise of a blazing fire ...

And at least one Pumpkin Spice Latte ...

All 380 calories of it.


Ah .... the magic of autumn.


  1. How lovely, Dayle!!
    It all looks so welcoming and cosy - especially that beautiful bedroom!
    I've been seeing bloggers mentioning this "Pumkkin Spice Latte" and it sounds really delicious!
    Don't think we have that here Down Under :-(
    Enjoy yours - you can afford the calories!

  2. I'm glad you included the words "at least one" to the pumpkin spice latte. I kind of think it will take a minimum of three to fully celebrate the season. Of course, it's not just the calories for me, it's the fact that I'm such a cheapskate and getting worse as the recession goes on.

    Therefore, I am sitting at ONE right now.

    I love your take on the season. We clearly like so many of the same things.

  3. Hi! Dayle..just beautiful! love this cozy post! Have a super Saturday:)!

  4. Wonderful pictures of the season....I love it soo too! Have a good week-end...

  5. Another soul who loves the Autumn. Hello! It is such a wonderful time of the year for sure. Kit

  6. it all, and you know I'm now inspired to go for that pumpkin spice latte, 380 calories and all. ;)

  7. Great pictures; I especially like the quilt.

  8. Funny how everyone seems to LOVE that pumpkin spice latte... it's a winner in my books too!

  10. Oh, Dayle, that was a nice post. LOVE that quilt. Oh, so gorgeous. Your house looks nice and cozy.

    Right now, we are buried under, guess what? SNOW! We never have snow in October but it's here. Brother. Take care. Susan

  11. I love the quilt. Love the trees! I love fall!

  13. Autumn is what you make of it, wherever you are on the globe. Favorite season of our days. Mmmm. Love it!

  14. I love how you paired "Magic" and "Autumn" together, Dayle. (Personally, I hope Heaven is lots like Autumn.)
    We're still HOT here in the desert, but these lovely pictures just bring me up!
