20 Little Things to Treasure in Autumn

Melissa of The Inspired Room has invited each of us to share our autumnal feast of favorites. Many people favor this season. Autumn has always been my favorite. I relish what every season has to offer, but fall—in particular—is about changing the color palette, letting go, embracing creature comforts, and beginning to cozy up in one's nest.

Matthew Mead Style

Here are my little things to treasure:

  1. Family...
  2. Inviting the outdoors in...
  3. Pumpkin everything: soup, butter, pie, pasta...
  4. Seasonal candles displayed with imagination...
  5. Squash...
  6. Godiva Pumpkin Spice truffles

  1. Hello KJ, I have been remiss and haven't visited lately. My cousin is here with her husband and I have a hard time getting some computer time.
    I love your favorite things and photos. Your text is always very cleverly written. Take care.

    Hugs, Jeanne
