Guest post 09: 'Warming up to Autumn' by Piper at 'One Sydney Road'...

Hi everyone! This is Piper from 'One Sydney Road' and I'm thrilled that Charlotta asked me to guest post while she's in Sweden, especially since I absolutely adore her blog!


We're starting to make that transition from summer to Fall here in Cleveland, Ohio - today's a perfect example - beautiful, blue sky day with a cool, crisp breeze.  Most everyone loves autumn - but I have to admit, it's hard for me to make that leap from Summer to Fall.  I'm a Summer-girl at heart (don't ask why we live in Cleveland then!)  But, all of a sudden, usually around October, I start easing into the idea of Fall.

Leaves changing color...


Perfect sleeping weather and lots of warm blankets...




Fun things to do like carve pumpkins & apple picking...


And my personal favorite - curling up with a good book, cozy blanket and lots of candles!


When you look at it that way, Fall suddenly sounds good to me!  
Thank you so much for letting me share with you. Wherever you are, I wish you a wonderful season! xo Piper

***************** * *****************

THANK YOU Piper for this wonderful post!! I know Autumn is not your favourite season and I so appreciate your list of cozy and yummy pleasures! Also, I have a feeling the freshness of October will be a welcome backdrop to your imminent web shop launch! I just read your latest article over at 'Make Under My Life' and feel all giddy with excitement that you are so close to the launch! Though I know you are breathing deeply into a paper bag at times (joking xx!) I just want to say once more how impressed I am with your journey and what an inspiration you are to me and everyone else!


People, this woman is living her dream. She has skipped off the beaten track to walk the path she passionately has dreamed of for years - she is opening her own store and is only weeks away from the launch!! You simply must click on the picture (sorry I couldn't insert the banner) above to jump across to 'One Sydney Road' and Piper's world of gorgeous posts (she is a natural at writing and coming up with fantastic post topics!) - I know you will love her blog as much as I do!


Next in my little guest post series is the lovely Caroline who blogs over at 'Absolutely Unique'. This gorgeous girl will report on Spring all the way from Patagonia (a place I have dreamed of going for years!!)..! I know that her wonderful post will make you all yearn for Spring and I look forward to seeing you all here again on 11th October..!

I can't believe it is less than a week before we are heading back to Sydney.. Time has flewn so quickly and I must say I am not quite ready to leave yet.. (am I ever..?) Though the rain is pouring down today it is still gorgeous in my eyes - heavy drops showering the explosion of colours in the trees outside my window. I am waiting for my nephew Filip (also my godchild) who is arriving in a couple of hours to have lunch with me before we head off to a Picasso exhibition (a gallery in a large converted barn!) in one of my favourite places, Mariefred.

Big Autumal hugs to you all!
xx Charlotta

I have never thought of fall as perfect sleeping weathr but my stars you are right! It's just the perfect way to describe this season. If you ever want to be cured of being a summer girl, just come move to Phoenix - we'll take care of that.
