What I love about Fall & contest

I thought I would tell you about a great Fall giveaway being drawn tomorrow at AE Filkins. Go there to check out what you need to do to have a chance/s at winning a wonderful supply of Fall Decorations.

My favorite fall decorations are cute pumpkins, little signs, and also natural items both as they are found or embellished with glitter. Think gourds, berries, pinecones, pumpkins natural or glittered, acorns natural or glittered, indian corn, apples in a nice wooden bowl. Colored leaves on the table. I LOVE IT ALL!!!

I love the coziness that fall brings in. The crisp air just lends itself to curling up with a throw and snuggling with a little one or other loved ones. I love filling our home with the aroma of simmering spices like cinnamon, cloves and allspice, something that is just not fitting during the Spring and Summer months.

I love being able to bake once again and not wilt the entire household. Baking all manner of loaves and gingerbread. Memories of being 8 in grandma's kitchen and feelings of nourishment envelope me as I endeavour to recreate these times for my own children.

I love the color show that is put on in New England for all to marvel over and delight in. I love apple picking and creating memories with these traditions for my children to store up in their hearts. What do YOU love about Fall? Blog about it and then enter the giveaway, Tuesday is the last day.


  1. Isn't Fall wonderful!?! I love Fall time and love that the weather is getting cooler and I especially love to decorate for the Fall! Your decorations sound lovely!!

  2. I love how the maple leaves change colors - here we get all shades of red and golden - and I also like that I can bake and the kitchen feels warm and cozy instead of hot and unbearable! :) I keep a bowl of apples (from our trees) on the kitchen table and I like to have some simmering scents too (orange, allspice, clove + cinnamon)... it's one of the ways I can bear knowing that we'll be covered in 5 ft of snow all too soon.
