Cheers to Autumn

From September to November, schedules remain quite hectic generally, it is a transition period. Between end of season, last bosses or charter trips, Atlantic Crossings, Yacht Show in the Med & Florida, boats getting sold, or getting ready for shipyards…. , crew leaving  or starting new jobs, what did I forget ? Holidays of course, Yes they are also part of those 3 months period too . And we have to remember to do those inventories too but also prepare the winter season ahead. Well there is no time to get bored !

Option one is spending  winter in a warm place in the world, Option 2 is to go to a cold area where snow, winter sports , mountain, fireplace,  chalets, ski resort will be part of everyday life for a season.

So there is no time for winter blues when you are jumping from one estate in the tropics or a season in the Med to a ski resort in the Alps or in Colorado.

This is this moment of the year when we start thinking of Warm Chocolates, Cheese Fondue , Mulled wines, Elk sausage or a Lamb fondue … and more , but still trying to adjust to the arrival  of winter . Just wait for December to show up 🙂

The air is crisp during autumn days, it is invigorating ,  I love to observe the transformation in our mother nature, and the change of colors when all leaves fall and nature become a mix of saffron and chilly.

It is time to Cozy up,  and find the perfect item to decorate the Interior  for Autumn Season and Thanksgiving.
