Wednesday Wanderings

Life Magazine - September 1931

Don't you love the displeased expression of this little cowboy as he's pressed against a swan by a well upholstered nanny? We can speculate as to why he looks unhappy, but I think it's pretty obvious... He'd rather be riding that horse!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

"Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile.
"
-William Cullen Bryant

"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all."
-Stanley Horowitz

"I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air."
-Nathaniel Hawthorne

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.
