Friday Faves 71 - Autumn

Well, it's that time of year again when the leaves start turning, the temperatures begin to cool down and everyone and everything starts getting ready for winter. That's right! It's almost Autumn! Just one day away! What a lovely time of year, too!

We'll start out our Autumn shop hopping with an old favorite of mine, and, in fact, this song is about to get a makeover in the new musical version of Jeff Wayne's The War of the Worlds. The new artist who will be singing it will be Gary Barlow of Take That fame. I'd love to share both versions with you but, at this writing, it's not available just yet. But you can look for the re-release of Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds, The New Generation on 12 November 2012.

Just for fun, here's the The New Generation's album trailer with a healthy nod to Steampunk fans.!

And without any further ado, Forever Autumn sung by the original artist from the 1978 version of Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds, Justin Hayward:

Now, let's go shopping!

Autumn Shop 1
Shop name: Nedjma Bazaar

A lovely way to herald in the beauty of fall is with these gorgeous earrings!

Autumn Shop 2
Shop name: Anna Sinclair

I just love these wedding bouquets made from old brooches and other findings, and this one is just perfect for an Autumn themed wedding.

Autumn Shop 3
Shop name: My Five Little Peppers

Cozy and beautiful, this pillow is the perfect Autumn accent for any home! I love the addition of the definition of the word 'Cherish' in the middle of the pillow. This pillow is certain to become a cherished memento.

Autumn Shop 4
Shop name: Dream Cottage Chic

What a lovely collector's item this cup and plate will make, and it fits in so well with our Autumn theme, too!

That's all for this week's Friday Faves. Please, stop by again for Music Monday when I'll be showcasing the music of Coldplay and Tuesday Tutorial when we'll be learning how to decoupage with paper without all those pesky bubbles and wrinkles.

Until then, have a great weekend everyone and take care out there!
