Leaves are ablaze in color, sweaters and boots are out of the closet, and our clocks fell back this weekend — fall has really arrived. So, I thought I’d see how bloggers are welcoming the season-change.

1. Habitually Chic compiled an inspiring collection of images to make you happily embrace the chilly weather. Don’t miss the Elizabeth Coatsworth poem “November” a pretty little ode to fall’s most colorful and quickly changing month.

2. Little Green Notebook explores black fireplaces with a round up of photos which of course leaves her convinced to paint hers an inky shade and try out a black granite surround. Perfect fall weekend project?

3. Coinciding with the switch from flip flops to boots, Style Court reviewed Rizzoli’s new book about the epic, American boot making company Frye: The Boots that Made History: 150 Years of Craftsmanship.

4. Over at Greige, there’s a pretty post all about the warm and natural neutral that’s so right for this fall — brown.

5. Cassandra at Coco + Kelley welcomes November with another round-up of autumn-worthy images — including a to-die-for wreath that’s begging to be made for Thanksgiving company.

    I had my children later in my life than my sisters and cousins, so now while the other kids are grown, mine are still litte. So the rule is who ever has the youngest kids doesn’t have to travel on Christmas Day. That is great for the kids but it means that I have the whole family over for dinner every year. While I have honed my Christmas dinner cooking skills, my table settings could use a bit of a spruce up. So I would love to have this set as my first foray into creating a table that is worthy of my prime rib dinner that is at its peak. Love the pattern and would love to have to pass on to the next generation that comes along to take my place with the youngest children in the family. My nephew is getting married next year so I know there is hope!

    My daughters were two and four years old and on Christmas Eve their father and I always made a plate of cookies for Santa and left carrots for the reindeer. We always stop there first thing Christmas morning to see the evidence of the jolly one’s visit. We always leave cookie crumbs and half eaten carrots to prove that Santa and the reindeer came through and this year we had pieces of carrots that had spilled on the floor and cookie crumbs strewn about. My daughters came and stopped at the table to see that they had been there and my two year exclaimed with disgust “Who made this mess?” They are now 12 and 10 and we talk about the “mess made by Santa’s reindeer” every year and have the best laugh. We still think she was just making sure she wasn’t going to get blamed for it.

    Holiday memories , One of my favorite memories, as a child was my parents said they were going to get a new couch, I was excited about that, but instead they brought he of us kids home a new bike! It was my first & mine was red with training wheels. My Dad who had lost his sight, taught me how to ride.. It was a very happy day. Wish he was still around to share my Holidays with. The bicycle you are giving away is so cool! Thanks for the contest.
