Whow you do have some collections! Here most people don't greet autumn very enthousiastic; it's windy and rainy and we have moderate summers, so there is no relief. And a lot of people get a little depressed from the falling of the leaves; the clock of life is ticking another year away. I have always loved autumn as my birthday is in October. It is so much fun too see all these autumn and halloween (something we don't know either) collections. Thanks for sharing!
