Beautiful giveaway! Love your blog and have been a follower for awhile now. It is always very inspiring! My favorite thing to do in the fall is bake. something about the fall makes me want to smell cinnamon and bread and all those yummy bakiing smells! I also love to ride on the back of my husbands motorcycle in the fall. the weather is perfect here in az at that time of year!

My favorite fall activity is a road trip to the mountains to see the leaves change and to stop at a Pumpkin Patch!

Hi Sharon!
I love everything about fall back in Wisconsin...hay wagon rides and bonfires where my BFF and I make s'mores, trips to a favorite place called "The Little Farmer" for their fabulous, fresh, homemade pies. I love the smell of the air, the lower sunlight and the crunch of leaves under my feet as I walk my dogs in the country. We don't have that here in Florida, and I dearly miss it this time every year.
Perhaps a trip north is in order!
xoxo

Doni said...

What a sweet giveaway!! I love those baby shoes! The first thing I always seem to do is shop for the ingredients I need to make stew! My hubby and I both love a hot bowl of stew, but not when the weather's hot! I just went to the store today and loaded up on ingredients, so I'm ready when the first whiff of cool air comes to town!
Lovely blog, and thanks for the chance to win your giveaway!
Blessings, Doni

Hi Sharon~what a lovely giveaway. I always look forward to fall so that I can go to the 15mile Antique Alley in Cleburne. It always happens in Oct. I also look forward to COOLER weather. Texas is sooooooooo hot.
Hope you are doing well.

Hi There!
I just LOVE the songs you have playing...they makes me so HAPPY! The things of fall make me happy too...although the season can be a very melancholy one for me. My mom and I used to travel and enjoy a trip to Silver Dollar City...mulled cider, calico potatoes, and caramel apples! Mom's been gone 7 years now, but not a fall goes by that I don't remember her and our trips to the Fall Crafts Festival!

Thanks for the wonderful chance to win the vintage goodies. I'm following now!

Fall is the time I like to get things accomplished so I can hunker down for the winter. Clean all the flower beds, rake leaves, wash windows (not something I LIKE to do but feel better getting it done). When harvest is in full swing and seeing wagons full of corn and beans, I know that time is short and it won't be long before the snow flies!

What a wonderful giveaway! My sister and I love to make caramel apples together. I hope I can this year too!

Elsina said...

My favorite fall activity is going outside when the first rain falls. We have a dry season from April-October and a wet season from October-April. After half a year of heat and no rain at all I just Love the first drops. The smell of the earth, one can almost hear the trees uttering a sigh of relief :) As for now, I am still waiting in 30 plus Celcius, close to 100F heat!

Lululiz said...

Autumn is the time for getting out into the woods and collecting nature's bounty. Acorns, chestnuts, seed pods rose hips, pine cones, berries to dry, even nuts like hazelnuts, cobnuts and walnuts. Just think of all the fabulous things you can do with those.

And of course I am a follower, I love reading your blog.

Blessings from Cindy said...

I love driving in the mountains seeing the autumn splendor of the changing leaves and taking pictures when I see something I can't resist, knowing that in a few days it will look totally different. I also go to my favorite fall show in a little town nearby, Sisters, for their Fall Festival. Thank you for such a neat giveaway! I may just need to make some homemade gingerbread!! Yum!
Blessings,
Cindy

Connie Eyberg Originals said...

Wonderful giveaway. In the Fall I want to do anything outside! It's my favorite time of year. I also like to decorate. Have a great afternoon!, Connie

Lorrie said...

Autumn holds so many pleasures - I love starting new sewing or crafting projects, wearing cozy sweaters, making (and drinking) hot chocolate, scuffing my feet in the fallen leaves, and baking yummy breads.

And I'm a follower - you have a charming blog.

Jensters said...

Please put me into your giveaway....fall is one of my favourite seasons i have the urge to bake, i love warm homemade food and as it nears to the end....would be to like my log fire...how cosy x

rgcarr said...

I love to bake in the fall. It just seems like you have to. But I also love going up in the mountains to look at the leaves too. It's hard to decide what i love the most.

Loretta said...

My favourite thing is a Deep Clean. Everything gets so dusty in the house over the summer months. After the Clean, I always celebrate the 1st day of Autumn with a Beef Stew. This year I tried a new crock pot recipe and I had to post about it on my blog. (you can find the recipe there) The stew was superb! Happy Fall!

Kathy B. said...

I find your blog SO inspiring! What I appreciate about fall are the smells of campfires, pumpkin pies baking, and cider mulling. What I don't appreciate is that winter follows with snow, cold, and ice. Wisconsin winters are looonnnggg! Thanks for the opportunity to win this fabulous giveway!

Hello there, thankyou for visiting my blog, I used your lovely artwork to let people know I was going away for a couple of weeks. My favourite time of Autumn is to make big pots of soup with fresh baked bread and watch everyone eat and enjoy it, it's also nice to draw the curtains at night and feel warm and safe.
Love Jillx

It's too warm to think of baking just yet. I will shop for pumpkins for my front porch and hang my pumpking flag.
Then I will start on the inside. I love fall and fall color.
Thanks for offering this great giveaway, Sharon.
