Autumn Gratitude


"Come, little leaves" said the wind one day,
"Come over the meadows with me, and play;
Put on your dresses of red and gold;
Summer is gone, and the days grow cold."

Soon as the leaves heard the wind's loud call,
Down they came fluttering, one and all;
Over the brown fields they danced and flew,
Singing the soft little songs they knew
....

from COME LITTLE LEAVES by George Cooper

At the end of last week a beautifully wrapped package arrived in the mail for my little family from The little gnomes home. Inside was a gnome, an autumn gnome and a stunning crystal; citrine I think... Gnomes don't like to wander far from their crystals and this one brings with her happiness, joy and optimism.


We feel so lucky to have won the random beanie draw and subsequently been gifted this perfect autumn treasure ~ She has made herself comfortable on our season table watching the mobile of leaves (recieved in the autumn southern season exchange) cast shadows as they dance in the wind.

Thank you.

My pleasure :) She looks so at home and what gorgeous leaves. Just thought, have you heard if there is a winter swap planned? I always find winter the hardest to depict on our nature table.
