Victorian Autumn

My heart inhabits some enchanting homes. In every season, it discovers a stately dwelling place, combining the dignity of grand traditions with the delights of domesticity.

My Victorian Autumn is the fourth seasonal addition to my series of idyllic family retreats, which visits an imposing Victorian mansion in the fall of the year. A handsome, gabled roof flanks the massive brick chimney, which trickles smoke from the hearth into the cool evening air. Light pours through the rectangular windows, providing a glimpse of the comfortable family life unfolding within. Though we don’t actually see parents or children, we sense the busy, active, satisfying lives they lead in this tranquil setting.

The change of season is well underway, and nature is blessed by the abundance of color it displays when summer begins to fade into fall. The near foliage is lavish with the last blossoms of summer, the reds, pinks, blues, and purples of a floral bouquet; while the trees have already begun to flame red and gold with the vibrant hues of autumn.

Victorian Autumn is an idyllic spot from which to savor the ripe pleasures of this most fruitful season of the year. I invite you to join me in savoring this joyful home where our hearts can reside among God’s quiet blessings.

  • Thomas Kinkade has hidden four N’s in Victorian Autumn, as his continued tribute to his wife Nanette.
  • The fourth image in the delightful series Home Is Where the Heart Is, Victorian Autumn evokes thoughts of crisp air tinted with the smell of wood smoke, fresh-picked apples and pumpkin pie!
  • For Thom, Home Is Where the Heart Is Collection represents four settings where family reigns supreme; warmth and love radiate from the glowing windows, and contentment lies within.
  • The ever-present lightpost is already lit for evening, lighting the pathway to the house. For Thom, the lightpost is a symbol of God’s light in our lives, guiding and directing our pathway home.
