  2. All splendid reasons to love fall! It really is the best season.

    Happy fall to you!

  3. Lovely collage Vee; the harvest season is one of bounty and beauty. I always come back from my early morning walk with the dog, grab a coffee and read the posts of fellow bloggers on my iPad. It's a relaxing half hour or so before I get going and I always enjoy what you have to share.

  4. Hello Vee, Amen Sister, thats why I love Fall, such a great list. Blessings Francine.

  8. I hope to see more of autumn soon. I enjoyed your 20 things!

  9. You have captured the best of Autumn through your words and photos. Lovely!

  10. I'm enjoying my taste of fall over here...on your blog. Beautiful mosaic! Though it is officially still feels quite summery in this part of the country. The leaves are just beginning to turn.

  11. What is it about autumn that captures our hearts? It does! Love this collage and the memories it holds of this and other years.

  12. Lovely collage Vee. i'm always impressed by your creativity in making them. Looking back at previous fall glimpses brings all the beauty of the season back to mind.

  13. I love your collage of autumn; it brought back memories. Our daughter Kelly loved to make collages and I have several of her beautiful works of art framed. Autumn was also her favorite and she asked for pumpkin pie every year for her birthday in October. Thank you for the glimpse into your fall days, XOXO

  14. What a lovely arty mosaic. I love it.

  15. Lots of great reasons here, Vee. I saw the title of your post in my reader but before I read it, I stopped, grabbed a sheet of paper, and wrote down my own list so as not to be too influenced by yours. Some items are the same, of course. :)

    The mosaic is such a great idea! I'll be linking up to that same party next week. Have a great day enjoying early fall.

  16. Twenty fabulous reason to adore this season! I know I do. I love your mosaics, wish I could do them. I also visited Melissa's blog, thanks for the heads up. I hope to be able to participate. xo

  17. Lovely...

  31. This is a gorgeous mosaic, Vee, and I 'm glad I'm using my husband's I Pad this morning to view it as I can enlarge it easily on this device.

    We saw lots of autumn color in Colorado, but the leaves haven't begun to turn here as yet. Our area doesn't change until late October or early November ..when everyone is already decorating for!
