Sunshine in my shadows

Welcome to sunshine in my shadows. This blog is my space to share all the stuff that makes up my every day life. Family, friends, crafts, recipes, books and all the little things that add 'sunshine to my shadows'. We all have a sprinkling of sunshine and an equal sprinkling of shadows in our lives. Hopefully you will find more sunshine than shadows to read about here and on the days when shadows fall, know that the sunshine is peeking just around the corner!

Quotes for Autumn....

I have collected quotes for many years. Here are some of my favourites for this earthy and wonderful time of year. Of  course Australia being in the Southern hemisphere our seasons fall in different months to our friends in the North.
wishing you sunshine in your shadows

"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The chestnuts, oaks and maples
and leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
and everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band."
George Cooper "October's Party"

"Delicious Autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive Autumns!"
George Eliot

"Winter is an etching, Spring a watercolour, Summer an oil painting and Autumn a mosiac of them all."
Stanley Horowitz

  1. They are lovely quotes, I adore Autumn even if it does mean a lot of raking, the colours are amazing,
    Thank you for sharing these

  2. Hi Helen,thanks for popping by.I love Autumn and the quotes are so sweet..xx

  3. Lovely quotes! Autumn is my favorite time of year. Though we are moving into spring here in the States. I do so love the crisp air, the smell of leaves and the crunching sound as I walk through them. I can wear my sweaters and jeans and feel comfortable. My internal body temperature loves autumn weather. Thank you for visiting my blog and following me. I am a new follower here too! I look forward to getting to know you more. Blessings to you. The picture of the autumn leaves is beautiful too!

  4. Helen, thank you so much for stopping by my blog, I'm enjoying reading yours! Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year - I'm already missing it now that we're into Spring here in the UK. The flowers coming into bud are beautiful but all to soon it will give way to Summer which isn't a winner when you're like me and not keen on the heat :-)

    Jem xXx

I am thrilled that you all came by and even more so that you took time to comment.Autumn is my favourite time of year, I wilt in Summer and Spring brings allergies. Wishing you all a beautiful week :)
