Blog Challenge: AUTUMN

Yesterday was officially the first day of Autumn here in the Northern Hemisphere, so for my next blog challenge let's do an AUTUMN theme.

What does autumn (or autumnal) mean to you?  To me, Autumn means falling leaves, of course, and autumn colors of gold and red and orange and brown.  It means nights that get longer and cooler.  Bright sunny days with a little nip in the air.  Cool rainy days spent with a blanket and a good book.  Pumpkin pie, red apples, Halloween and Thanksgiving.  School clothes and Number 2 pencils.  Here in Tennessee, early Fall means the acorns are ripe and the squawky bluejays arrive to eat them!

If you see the definitions of "autumnal" above, it can also refer to a metaphorical autumn, the autumn of one's life, an autumnal style in art, a feeling of something a little past ripe but still lush, a turning from fullness of summer toward the stillness of winter, a golden in-between time.  A turning inward.  Fall always energizes me, with cooler air and bright turning leaves and a new school year, but it also tends to make me reflective.

I can't wait to see your creative reflections on AUTUMN! 
The Design Team has created some very lovely pieces to get your creative juices flowing (see them below). 

This challenge (#11) will end at 11:55 AM on October 6 (I'm ending it a little earlier this time, please note!)  

The winner will be selected randomly to win two free Lunagirl digital collage sheets of your choice!

Any craft or medium is OK,
No more than 3 entries from one person in each challenge, and
Please link to my blog & on your site if you have one.

Of course I love if you use at least one Lunagirl product, and I hope you'll go take a look at my collection... but that's not a requirement!  Most important is have fun, get creative, enjoy vintage. 

Find out more about the Moonbeams DT and visit their blogs! 

The DT are using some Fall leaves images from my Victorian Flowers CD plus a girl from Vintage Girls & Boys and a lady walking in the woods from Vintage Women & Men. (You'll also find her on this Spring & Autumn collage sheet.) Here is an assortment of collage sheets and images that seem "autumnal" (I think I'll create one or two more also!):
