Although sometimes a melancholy befalls some at this time of year when they see the passing of the summer season of brightness fade into the possibility of chill winds of winter looming on the horizon, for others they see this season as the most colourful, exciting, abundant and vivid time of the year!
Personally, I find this the most amazing time of year. The colours take your breath away and the abundance of the harvest promises tasty dishes for the long winter months ahead. Gone are the days when we wish it could be a little cooler. Now is the time to go for all those long lingering walks to discover nature’s palette, pick fruit off the hedgerows and see how the colours change in the light which in itself changes by the season.
Autumn is the time of year when nature offers us all her fruitful gifts to which we give thanks.
Whilst I lived in the Middle and Far East this is what I missed so much. The changing of the seasons, the renewed hope to look forward to the next adventure.
Talking of adventures and walks I decided to look for autumnal subjects/items for sale within the BBEST group. The wealth of talent available along with the choices offered leaves me speechless! Take a look at some of the examples I found:
Butterscotch Flower Earrings by ZudaGay
Bring the warmth of this colour to match your autumn wardrobe.

Autumn Rose felted coasters by J N Originals
Autumn being a wonderful time for long walks, the temperature cools down once the sun hides behind the watery clouds and it is time to settle down indoors with a welcome warm drink. These coasters make it all seem so much more cosy, don’t they?
Well, my BBESTer friends, what do you think? Above is a selection of inspired items in the autumn/fall theme. All catching the warmth of the glow of the diminishing sunshine but still giving us a wonderful sense of wonder at how clever nature really is!
