autumnal magic

..She loved October-
loved it well in its first crimson pomp, 
Altuzarra Fall 2012 RTW

when frosted leaves hung like a flame

Texas Autumn photos by my guy 2012
and the asters along the road were like pale purple songs;

Antonio Marras Fall 2012 RTW

and even better in its later quiet of brown autumnal fields

Me and my husband walking around our old neighborhood, in Autumn 2005

when the hills were blue and the great wheat-fields along the harbour-shore warm gold and the glens of autumn full of shimmering leaves

Marigold always felt that  there was something in the fall that belonged to her and her alone if she could only find it, and this secret quest made of September and October months of magic....words from book Magic for Marigold  by L.M. Montgomery

  5. Teddi, when did you and your husband meet? You've been a couple for a long time, it seems. I like the rich textures and lovely photography in this post. Your posts really transport people to a happy place.

    You asked about photos from my trip to Italy. Unfortunately it took place in pre-digital camera days and I only have printed photos. Otherwise, I would be happy to share!

  7. I like Fall very much too! Loved the Antonio Marras' outfits and you posing - you always look so joyful, so sweet!
    I must say although I'm having quite a lot of adventures (well, I looked for some, too boring where I was) - some of them not pleasant at all - I'm glad being here because Fall is all around :) - while in my uh... hometown (not my real choice) I woud be melting now! And I don't like it!

  9. i just love that very first outfit
