September Light

Hello everyone,
 I hope you are enjoying this first weekend of September. Already, I am noticing a warmer
golden light streaming in through the windows.

               I have been playing a little in photoshop elements today-I have so much I would love to learn about this program. I hope to do some tutorials when the weather gets cooler but I am not in any rush
-I want to enjoy these final days of summer for awhile yet.

     What about you are you looking forward to Autumn or hanging onto summer for as long as
               you can?

              We are having all of our grandchildren up for a sleepover shortly so I better get ready for them - it should be a lively time!

Thank you for visiting,

I have been away most of the summer visiting other countries so I am holding tightly to the last of summer. But the garden has moved to autumn without me:) Have a wonderful week. Take care, Jen

I am looking forward to autumn, it's my favourite season. The light streaming through your window sure does make the sitting area look even cozier.

Sunlight streaming in adds a whole different dimension to a room. Your photos really capture the beauty, Carolyn.

Enjoy your time with the grandchildren on this Labour Day weekend.



Oh, I love this romantic and serene post with that lovely sunlight streaming through your window pane. Beautiful photos and setting for a lovely afternoon tea. Have a nice week.

Your rooms look wonderful Carolyn and the golden light makes them so warm and cozy!
I am hanging onto the warmer weather but also looking forward to the beautiful colours in our Valley this Fall.

Take care

Its such a beautiful room and what a lovely photo you've done with the sun streaming in. It has a look of fall even though we know it's still summer! You've done some nice mosaics.

The light has changed a lot the past 2 weeks hasn't it? I'm looking forward to apple picking but I'm hanging on to summer as long as I can and as long as the nice warm weather stays. I've started fall decorating though. I like the colours of autumn. Have a wonderful sleepover with your grandkids. Sounds like a fun time. Pamela

Such pretty photos. Your rooms are so inviting and warm. I do love fall but I certainly enjoy all that summer has to offer. Enjoy your precious grandchildren.

When you live in Arizona, fall can't get here soon enough, but it will not show itself here for another month or two. I feel cooler just looking at your beautiful photos.

I do love fall but I enjoy very much the last of summer, the transition between the seasons when the light is less intense, the shadows lengthen and things suddenly take on another dimension. There is an "atmosphere" in the air.

Have a very good week.

Dear Carolyn

your Shots are always delightful, Because you live more north, it is excitingly to see like the autumn come.
We hope for a long and colorful one.

Bring on the fall weather - I LOVE it!

Your photos are always so inviting!

Beautiful photos, Carolyn! Yes, I am looking forward to Fall. Although it wasn't as hot and humid here this year, these past few weeks have been. I'm about ready for cooler temps! I'm looking forward to getting my Fall decorations out. The only thing I will miss is how it stays lighter out later.


I love September golden light! It is so warm.
I love your home Carolyn, it is even more magic with this light!

have a nice time with your sweet grandchildren!

So pretty, Carolyn. I love the lace and your frenchy pillows. The chintz teacup is sweet too. No, I'm not at all ready to give up Summer. Autumn can take as long as it likes to arrive. Enjoy your little ones.

There's nothing like the golden light of autumn. So pretty.

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

The light in your picture is amazing, so warm and golden. We've had a perfect summer in Brittany, so I'll be sorry when it goes away, but chilly evenings are also a good opportunity to have a hot tea on the sofa!

Christine @ Rustic-Refined said...

Beautiful the way you take pictures.

Beautiful photos! Love the curtains! Where did you purchase these?


Carolyn said...

I bought the curtains here locally at a shop that
has since closed down.
