Happy Autumn!

From my friend, harper, and guest blogger, Eliseo Mauas Pinto, some Celtic Autumn joy for you. You'll find this lovely image and more like it from Kristen Fox at deviantART.com.


"May this fall season reconnect us
to the ever-changing aspects of our lives:
color, complexity, beauty and mortality."


Bliss and blessings ♥ 



Please add your own thoughts for the season below, and link to music of the season, too (check out my A Light in the Forest Album on amazon.com and iTunes for beautiful seasonal Celtic harp and instrumental music).

Decorating for Mabon is easy, as many crafts stores carry "fall" items, such as wreaths to hang above your door, garlands of gourds, pumpkins, and leaves; cookie cutters in maple and oak leaf shapes; a variety of rubber stamps in fall designs........and of course, cornucopias! Some Crafty ideas would be to make pins, pendants, and decorated hats to wear throughout the season. Rubber stamps on Granitex(tm) clay look amazing, as do polymer clay cut-outs and wreaths using fall shaped cookie cutters. A centerpiece of gold and red candles, plus a cornucopia garlanded in bright oak leaves and acorns can be used right through the American holiday of Thanksgiving.
You can also make corn or grain dollies and scarecrows to represent the Earth/Harvest Mother Goddesses and Gods of the fields.

Have a fruitful, blessed Mabon in the gathering of the autumn crops !

Beautiful ideas, Eliseo! I would imagine your home looks beautiful decorated with items for the seasons. Can you share any links with us so that we know where we can get some of these wonderful fall decorations?
