Scare The Summer Away

The closest full moon to the September equinox is called the Harvest Moon.

Native Americans call it the Corn Moon,
a time to celebrate the abundance of the earth
and harvest their fields of corn.

It's a time of great celebration, dancing and food!

I brought out my Corn Maiden to celebrate the harvest
and the coming of Fall.

Corn Maiden

She is telling the stories of the harvest to her children.

Fall Corn Maiden

One of our local weathermen suggested 
the whole town should decorate for Fall and Halloween
and maybe that would scare the summer away!

With the help of my little corn maiden,
I'm taking that advice.

Hello Fall
Quirky Owl from West Elm

Pumpkin Spice
Mug from Fiesta

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Finally a chill in the air in Chicagoland, but no color along Lake Michigan into Wisconsin. Hard to do Fall...when we go from 94 to ..frost in one week. Maybe---now---oops it's going to be mid 80's in two days????

And for a change we could see the moon without lots of cloud cover. September is a hard month to predict the weather. - Margy

It looks a lot like fall on your blog today! What a great little corn maiden. I hope your temperatures cool off. They are dropping here.

Angie said...

I am not sure I am ready to scare summer away, but I sure like the idea of Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice!

Maggie said...

So nice to see everyone decorating for fall season, your corn maiden, owl vase and mug are great accent pieces for this time of year.

Even if it doesn't work, it sure will make your town look fun! I wish when we are in Florida that Spring decorating would scare the heat away and bring me tulips and daffodils -- the spring flowers that I miss when we're there.

Autumn is pretty here in Oregon and I really enjoy seeing the season change.

I love that corn maiden figurine and the legend about her. And your owl. It is all a very nice kind of scary and the kind of decoration I'd far rather see than ghotsts and tombstones and that stuff.

I love your pretty corn maiden! That is one aspect of late summer that I love--fresh corn on the cob. I always indulge in eating it almost every day at harvest time as it is local here and so very sweet.

I also love everything about Autumn. I just wish it would last longer!

The corn maiden is just adorable. I love everything here today. I've not pulled out my fall bins as yet and may not. Pumpkins and wreaths may be enuf for me this year.
Thanks so much for coming by.

Your corn maiden is so adorable, Snap! I hope you'll be enjoying some cooler days, soon.

Scare summer away? Still terribly hot I take it. Hope that your sweet little corn maiden helps! (Beautiful autumnal header!)

I didn't know that the native Americans planted corn. I love your corn dolly. Enjoy autumn! and thank you for visiting my blog this week.

Your weather man is too funny. I hope tallish weather has arrived. We seem to have skipped fall and gone straight to winter. Thanks for linking to Keep in Touch. Cute fall decor.
