Fall....Where Are You??

There is something about fall that makes me want to wrap myself in plaid blankets and sit under a chilly evening of stars roasting marshmallows.

Wear rubber wellies and fisherman sweaters and go to a pumpkin patch then get a warm spicy muffin and latte.

Yesterday around 6 p.m. I drank a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks outside, under their heat lamps.
 I was sweating in a simple long-sleeved t-shirt! There was something not quite right about a muggy drizzle on a late September day in the Pacific Northwest. When you are actually so warm you are wishing you'd gotten your latte iced....

Yes, I am complaining. I don't mind rainy days. Or September sun. But rain....and humidity?
It's just not right around here! I want that smell of autumn on the air, that slight coolness that makes you feel glad you grabbed your sweater as you headed out the door.....

Ah well. I just know those crisp fall nights will be here before you know it!!!

I have a busy weekend coming up, starting with Harvest Night from 4-8 on Friday night at Painted Lady Vintage (and including other local shops.) I will also be adding some of my latest fall creations to our All That Jazz Vintage space (I'll share those with you in an upcoming post) and  power shopping a few fall harvest sales with my cousin Tara!

I can't wait!

Hmmm.....should I keep out my flip-flops and tank tops??

Hi Michelle! Harvest Night sounds wonderful! We are having our "Autumn Afternoon" this weekend too! Hope the weather cooperates!!

Fall is my favorite time of year, and I am so worried we're not going to get much of it this year! We were in the high 90's all last week and now we're low 60's and RAINY! It just feels weird!

Good luck this weekend!

I am excited about this weekend! This weather is giving me FITS. Yesterday was just outrageously WEIRD! I am not too thrilled about all this rain either but at least we're getting a break this week.

I am right there with you, Michelle. I am in the Northeast (NY) and two days ago, I had the heat running. Yesterday, I had the air conditioning on. I don't get it! Fall hasn't been the same in NY in a few years. Thank you so much for stopping in and leaving your sweet comment on my cookie monster party!
