Having a think about the animal and there are all sorts of problems created by the scale. There aren't any creatures associated exclusively with austumn, but I've considered 4:

1) Robin - associated with autumn but moreso winter. The red chest would match in nicely. About the right size. Birds resting on the finger tip seems quite likely.
2) Red Squirrel - associated with autumn for collecting nuts. The colours would match. Might be a bit big though to the leaves.
3) Fox - red and black fits nicely but the scale is an issue, unless you throw out scale all together.
4) Ladybird - can be yellow or red which will match and is about the right size. Not sure if its associated with autumn.

I'd make her look older. Both because she's a tree, which are old, and because autumn shows decay and aging.

Agreed with that. It was something else I was going to suggest, but you beat me to the punch! The doll face look is too youthful for autumn.

A young face would be better suited to that potential spring version.
A really old face would be best suited to winter.
