What I Love About Fall/Autumn

Ill be posting more of my favorites soon, the ones below are only a few. Hope you enjoy!One of my favorites things about fall are the pumpkins and gourds and the various sizes, shapes and colors the come in. One of the first things that gets me in the mood for fall are pumpkins, I mean its just not fall without them. You can do so many things with them like, baking breads..cakes and pies. You can set them around your home, inside and out, to decorate for the season. You can carve them, paint them, even make a head for your home made scarecrow. The possabilitys are endless.

Harvest Sugar Cookie is another favorite of mine and its a new scent for me. I found it recently and it smells so good. Just like the scents of tarts and candles, each season has its own scent and fall/autumn is one of my favorites. The smell and sound of the freshly fallen leaves on the ground are so refreshing. It think fall candle scents are the best...pumpkin, cinnamon, apples, sugar cookies, just puts you in the mood....ya know, kinda like Christmas music does in December.
Theres nothing like coming home to a warm cozy throw at the end of the day to snuggle up with and maybe read a good book.

Ive always been drawn to these books, but have never read one, so Im planning on buying one this fall and get started on it. Im so excited to read one. Any recomendations?
Long walks on a cool, crisp day are the best, with plenty of natures own "eye candy" all around. It truely makes living in the country worth while!
Speaking of eye candy, this is one of the things that help you to keep summer in your heart when the heat has faded, the petunias have passed and the geranums are gone. Bright beautiful pops of color remind you of summer, yet make you think of fall. They come in so many pretty colors and sizes, you cant help but love them.


  1. I love fall, too. And reading this reminded me of my favorite coffee flavor, Pumpkin spice. My hubby and I drink it so much when we can get it in season. The store we get it from should be ordering it soon...I can't wait!


  2. Hi Nancy and thanks for commenting! They always have seasonal flavored creamers that I always want to try, but never do, so Im thinking of trying it this year. Im looking forward to flavored teas, too.

  3. Ohhhhh...reading your post is making me impatient for fall! Great post :)
