A Cozy Autumn Picnic


Autumn ushers in the season of cozy.  Hikes through the woods 
collecting brightly colored leaves  ~ well, not in south Texas :-(
But, I can always pretend that's what I am doing and set up a
cozy picnic atmosphere inside where it's cool.




I can light up a cinnamon scented candle and drink some
apple cider and pretend I am having a picnic some where in the
colorful hills of New Hampshire or Vermont.



I have a vivid imagination :-)

  1. I'm good at imagining. In Middle Georgia it was always warm at Thanksgiving. We usually put up the Christmas that night. I turn down the AC and turn on the Christmas music and it feel like winter. That's what I too am doing in TN this Fall. A little pretending keeps us young:)

  2. I love your imagination. It all looks very fall like and just makes you want to cosy up in front of the fireplace. Everything looks perfect for fall. Enjoy, even if it is inside. ♥ Teri

    1. The other day I teased my hubby about lighting a fire in the fireplace because I turned the A/C up so high that I had to put on a sweatshirt ;-)

  3. Susan , I cannot do fall decorations yet...yesterday it was 97 degrees and very humid! Today at noon a bit cooler 87. I did pick up some ornamental cabbages and fake gourds, ( others in attic I cannot go up there!!!!! ) Still I cannot bring myself to go outside to put in window boxes, maybe tomorrow in AM a bit cooler. I do not know how you can do TX heat. I love looking at bloggers fall decorations, yours included.

    1. The way I handle the heat is I stay indoors quite a bit :-)

  4. Our temps here are just above freezing at night and the trees are beginning to change color. It is such a beautiful time of year and a wonderful time for a picnic :)

  5. When you live where we do, it's good to have an imagination! :D Love the plaids.....
    I hung a new flag out on the balcony ... a scarecrow wearing a red bandana and I found a candle at Ross that smells like cappuccino. That will have to do for a start!

  6. Beautiful table - you have a touch of fall inside, if not outside!

  7. I lived in New Hampshire for several years, in my teens and attended high school there. My parents also had a summer camp in Gilmanton NH from the early 1960s until they finally sold it when they knew it was time in 2009. I remember getting off the school bus in autumn, right in front of a big apple orchard that had a fruit stand. I would get off the bus, go across the road and get the freshest apple and eat it on the way home. I love the autumn colors and always have. I may live in SW GA now but I am a nothern girl at heart, EXCEPT I do love a nice day at the beach. I lived in FL too and Hawaii (the BEST) but in the end, if it wasn't for shoveling snow, I would be back in NH now.

    1. I have spent many summers up in New Hampshire, but never a winter. My native Texan husband went to pre prep at Cardigan Mountain School. He has told me many stories about how cold it gets up there. But I still think it is a beautiful state and I leave a piece of my heart there each time I visit.

  8. Hi Susan,
    I'm with you! I have to pretend I am back where I spent several years of my childhood, Rockland, Maine. The leaves were so beautiful there. I am now on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. As I write this, I am looking out of my back window, looking at all the GREEN! It is hot today, but I hear cooler temps are coming. I like your idea of lighting a cinnamon candle and sipping cider! I am a new follower and found you on What's It Wednesday. I would love for you to stop by at Still Woods Farmhouse for a visit. I am sharing a pretty cute pumpkin!
    Blessings from Lynda at Still Woods Farmhouse

    1. I love your area of the country too. In a perfect world we could live up in Maine until it gets really cold and then head back down South! I love the Hill Country too. If you ever get back out this way, let me know!

  11. Beautiful vignette and love your imagination! I just to do the same back in Arizona when September came. It actually help my brain tell my body that the weather was getting so much cooler!!!

  12. Well your vivid imagination is a wonderful compliment to your gorgeous table vignette. That's so cute and cosy...and since the rain started here after a long dry hot summer that's looking even more appealling. I hope that you get a break from the heat too.

    1. Rain is always greatly appreciated. Although I live down in Texas now, I still own property up in the mountains of Idaho quite close to where the fires have been raging. Rain is a blessing and I never complain about it after living in the west during fire season. Thanks for stopping by Jen!

  14. I love hoe you can bring fall into Texas. I know it must be hard to see it when you look outside and you didn't let that stop you. Good for you!

    Your tablescape is just beautiful...Love how you styled it!

    1. When I look outside I see lots of green, but when I look inside around my house all I see are cozy touches of fall. Somehow it works :-) Thanks for stopping by Christine.
