Fall is just around the corner

I love the looks and smells of Fall .
I had a a gift card to Michael's and one to Hallmark, so I got this Pumpkin vanilla spice candle along with the Fall garland, that I wrapped to make a centerpiece for my table.


This is the apple spice candle on my stove....mmm, it smells so good!

I got these fresh veggies and fruits at local farmer's market. Everything was so tasty!

I made homemade blueberry muffins with the blueberries from the farmer's market.

*What is your favorite thing to do in the Autumn Season?

Wow, you've been like Julie - homemakeer here! I do like fall. I'm still trying to decide if I can put out fall stuff yet. We have low temps and then we have a random 90 degree day which makes it annoying.
I love the centerpiece. I think maybe you've just inspired me to buy some of that garland. :) I also spotted a really nice Autumn door wreath - I just couldn't justify $20.00 yet.
My favorite thing would probably be the autumn smelling candles and buying pumpkins and gords.

okay--I accidentally deleted my comment...anywho, I was saying that a few of my favorite Fall things are to take walks and look at the beautiful colors and enjoy the fresh air, decorating for the season, and enjoying "Fallish" drinks from Starbucks of course;) Your new finds from Hallmark & Michaels look great! hope you're having a great week!

I love the crisp air in the mornings, the smell of woodstoves burning, having to put on a sweater to head outdoors, watching soccer games with a blanket around you, and seeing the colors of the leaves on the trees changing daily. Oooohhhh....it's coming!! I can't wait. It's my FAVORITE season of all!

Oh yea! I love EVERYTHING about fall! The air smells different, the colors, the decorations--everything is better! Love your centerpiece!!

I have to agree with everyone else. I really like sweatshirts, sweaters, and jeans that I get to wear in the crisp air. I loved soccer season too.

I have always loved the fall season as well; the only bad part about fall is that winter is what follows!
Did you get a camara?

I absoulutly love fall! I just recieved a buy one get one free yankee candle coupon and I can't wait to go and buy my favoite scent 'harvest.' That's one of the things that makes me say ahhh, fall is here. My other favoite fall things include: eating carmel apples, wearing sweatshirts for the cool breeze - but feeling the warm sunshine on my face, carving pumpkins and hearing the crunch of the leaves on the ground as you walk through a brightly colored forest and of course FOOTBALL! (We might actually get to got to an NFL game this year!)

Unfortunatley the fall isn't as beautiful at the beach as it is in PA - you know that! I hope you have some good spots to experience fall out your way. It looks like you are off to a good start with your candles and decorations - you've got great taste!

Dawn,

We actually didn't buy a camera. Tim just has a really good one on his new phone, so we are using that one for now.

To all,
Thanks for your great comments about the fall season. I was already excited about it, and now I am thrilled about that cool weather coming our way!
