Autumn Gathering Home Party announcement...

I did a few pages in my inspiration journal with a fall feel to them. It's been cool and crisp here, definitely feeling like Autumn weather coming on.
I get completely obsessed with home decor magazines this time of year. I love to look at the wonderful rich, rustic colors of Autumn. I was giddy when the new issues of Country Living and Mary Engelbreit Home Companion came in the mail today. They look fabulous! Here's a peek at an article from the Oct. issue of Country Living magazine. Look at these amazing metallic pumpkins. I'm really into bronze this season.This article in ME Home Companion on Sue Hadden's wonderful Halloween home got me thinking. Don't you think we're due for a party in blogland? On Sunday night the 21st of September, running through the Autumn Equinox on the 22nd I will be hosting an Autumn Gathering Home party. If you'd like to participate leave a comment on this post and on the 21st or 22nd post pictures on your blog of your Autumn home. If you're looking for some crafty project inspiration, check out the amazing things people are creating over on the Sweet and Sinister flickr group here.
Also feeling inspired by some new reading. True Vision: Authentic Art Journals by LK Ludwig, The Savvy Crafters Guide to Success by Sandra McCall and the latest issue of Somerset Studios with some fabulous vintage Halloween artwork.

What are you doing to get ready for the change of season?

What a wonderful post to get me in the mood. My ME mag arrived and everything made me drool. I love the display that you have set up already! The wreath is particularly FABULOUS ....maybe you may want to include it on my Hallo-wreath challenge on Oct 1st on my GaGa for Garlands blog!?!?
Thank you for sharing
Enjoy the rest of your week

I will defiantly try to participate! I am already itching to get the fall/Halloween stuff out, but my son's 7th b-day party is on the 21st, so I want to wait till that stuff is done. I can't wait to get my Country Living and that ME looks inviting!

april said...

I would love to play along!

Nichole said...

Can't wait to get my Country Living either! I have saved the last 3 Halloween issues...they always dazzle me with their Halloween decor!

As for me I'll probably just purchase a pumpkin or two to decorate with my daughter. Usually I go all out for Halloween, but I'm taking a break this year.

DeeAnn said...

You have made me want to run out & grab the magazine right now. Already put them on my shopping list. Completely jealous, that your ME copy came in the mail already. I'm a subscriber too. Impatiently waiting now. :) I love what you did with your art journals. Thank you for the book recommendations. My library list & Amazon Wish List keep getting bigger.

Jingle said...

I am still in denial! LOL! I won't let it be fall until the weather starts too cool down and I am going to soak up the sun and enjoy summer for as long as I can! LOL!

Oooooo, a party! Sounds fun. I'm not sure how much decorating we'll be doing this year. DD went away to college & DH is in the mood to do some remodeling. But we're waiting for some cooler weather.

The autumn/fall season is my most favorite! I love orange and black together. And those magazines look awesome!!! I totally forgot to download my new Country Living magazine and I want to go buy the Home Companion since I let my subscription lapse. Thanks for the reminders and gorgeous pictures.
~ Happy Fall ~

jen said...

I too am obsessed with magazines right now, so fun to get new ideas. I would love to participate, hopefully I will remember:) I am itching to get the Halloween decorations out, but I am afraid I will get sick of them before Halloween comes. I don't think I can wait much longer!

cindy said...

We are thinking alike, you and I. I have looked through my MEHC so many times since it's recent arrival...can't wait to get my CL. Sounds like a great party plan. Count me in. And those books look good too! Had already had my eye on one of em. Great post.

It's nice to know we aren't the only ones who collect the seasonal magazines for each season. Well get all those magazine and then we combine them into a large inspiration book. We posted it on our blog:

dianeinjapan said...

This is my favorite time of year for magazines! It's not feeling very Autumn-ish yet where I live, but that should change in a few weeks. Please include me in the party--I can't forget the deadline, as it's my husband's birthday!

Dianne said...

I think I posted in the wrong post! I'd like to show you my decorations. My son's birthday is the 24th not the 23rd-opps. Thinking about my mom's birthday which is tomorrow, 9/23!
