Autumn Time


We have Wintertime, Springtime and Summertime, but no Autumntime ~ only because no one ever got around to using the word.  Well, if you had a wall clock with a pretty Autumn scene, you instantly would have Autumn TIME in any room in your house.

Wall clocks are both practical and decorative. Everyone needs clocks, so why not choose ones that set the mood for the Halloween holiday or party and all throughout the Autumn and Harvest Time season.  Whether you call it Autumn, Fall, or Harvest time... Seasonal Themes are Perfect!


Autumn Leaves




When one thinks of this time of year, the first thing that comes to mind are the beautiful colors in the Autumn leaves.

The brilliant colors of autumn are shown in the foliage of trees during the Autumn season. Some parts of the country, like New England, attract thousands of visitors each Fall to view the gorgeous Autumn leaves. If you live in the South like I do, the best way to get your 'changing leaves' view is with a decorative clock for your wall.

If I hide in the leaves, I don't have to help rake? 

 My grandson in Iowa found his favorite way of helping to rake the fall leaves. "Just pile the leaves around me, dad, and I'll (maybe) get them into the leaf bags". :)


Halloween




The Halloween holiday occurs during the Autumn months and what would Halloween be without pumpkins. Have a pumpkin right on your wall with this cute clock!

The origin of Halloween pumpkins (which have become popular as a carved Jack O'Lantern) comes from an Irish Folktale from centuries ago. In Ireland and Scotland versions of Jack’s lanterns were made by carving scary faces into turnips or potatoes and placing them into windows or near doors to frighten away wandering evil spirits. In England, large beets are used for the same Jack O'Lanterns.

When people from these countries immigrated to America, they brought the Jack O’Lantern tradition with them where they discovered that pumpkins, a fruit native to America, make perfect jack-o’-lanterns. So a Jack O'Lantern Clock makes the perfect wall clock for your Halloween decor!  Pumpkins also fit in well with your Thanksgiving decor.


Thanksgiving/Harvest Time



Pumpkins and gourds and sheaves of wheat represent Harvest Time to many, as it's the time to harvest the ripe pumpkin crops in the autumn season.


Decorating for Thanksgiving is easily done with attractive wall clocks





 

The Time has Come...

  1. I love fall (or autumn or Harvest Time) and truly love all of these fall designs. My favorite, though, has to be the Thanksgiving theme. The muted colors in that design are especially beautiful.

  2. These are really beautiful clocks! I love the one with the trees in all their gorgeous fall color. You grandson certainly looks like he is having a lot of fun in those leaves. He is quite well hidden in the first photo. Isn't it wonderful how kids can make a game of just about anything?

    1. Thanks, mouse. I remember the days as a kid jumping and playing in the raked up piles of leaves, Mouse. The imagination of children knows no bounds.
