Get Ready for AUTUMN + Giveaway

August 17, 2011

G’day all, it’s almost fall!  Well, we’re still experiencing high temps around here, and we’re all still in summer attire, but I saw a few leaves fall from the trees and float through the breeze at a local park yesterday, and just then I began to feel ready for autumn.  *sigh*

Of course you know I’m a huge fan of Matthew Mead and recently worked with him on a holiday photo shoot in my home.  Look for that issue in October.  While we wait, there’s yet another source of inspiration that’s solely dedicated to the beauty of fall.  Matthew has another bookazine on sale now: it’s Autumn with Matthew Mead

Autumn is drawing near, with its warm flavors, colors and cozy traditions.  September will soon bring those changing leaves and cooling temperatures.  I’ll be craving pumpkin spice lattes, dressing in scarves and boots, and bringing out those chenille throws, fragrant fall candles, and roasting butternut squash in the oven, can’t wait !  The kids are already planning their Halloween costumes too.

    College football!

  39. Kay Pflueger says:

    Since I live in San Diego CA, I am not able to enjoy the “changing of the seasons” that other parts of the country can. I love anything to do with fall and I cannot wait until I can bring out the storage boxes of my autumn goodies. I fill my house with the colors, smells and textures of the season.. even if it doesn’t feel like fall outside. I am anxiously awaiting my first pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks and the smell of applesauce simmering on my stove. Ah yes.. the joys of the season!

  40. amy j says:

  43. Kayla says:

    I live in Texas so we don’t get the leaves changing colors and don’t really get cool weather until October or November. I love the first cool day though. It’s refreshing and makes me want to cuddle under the blankets with a cup of tea. Plus fall has the best decorations! I love fall, it’s my favorite season :)

  44. Hello Kate,

    Here in Virginia, the leaf colors are spectacular! Crisp mornings with a cup of hot coffee on the back deck, while I breakfast on leftover homemade apple pie (fruit that we picked of course) and listen to the birds chirp…..HEAVEN or should I say HAVEN ;->

    janet xox

  45. Kayla says:

    I linked to Facebook. Love your blog!

  46. Kelly P says:

    Well, I moved to Arizona from Michigan 4 years ago and one of the things I miss most is fall. I can’t choose one thing about it though, it’s everything: going to the cider mill, leaves changing, crisp, cool air, football games (yes we have those here but it’s NOT the same in 80 degrees!), apple picking, pumpkin patches, sweaters!, etc. etc. etc. I MISS FALL!

  47. kate says:

    The air. That it’s cool, crisp, smells amazing, breezy- all of it re-energizes me like nothing else. I feel more alive and whole and happy in the fall. It’s my favorite season and always has been- I can’t imagine living somewhere without this season. I pity the southerners a bit as they miss out :)

  48. Ashley says:

    Fall clothes, cooking stews and cool weather food, school supplies, cooler weather, the sound of the local high school football game, I could go on.

  49. Barbie says:

  128. Tilara says:

    Fall is my favorite season! So many wonderful memories, of returning to school, High School and College Football. Tailgating with friends, and all of those wonderful times! The cooler weather is a blessing after the scorching South Carolina Summer. Most of all I love the togetherness of fall, the family is all together again and in our normal routine! Trips to the pumpkin patch will always be a favorite fall routine! Love it!!!!

  129. Here in the seared heart of Texas, Fall seems impossibly far away. Just the dream of cool, crisp days will have to sustain me. One of my choicest “Fall” memories is the vision of a long row of Bartlett pears near my home, blazing with russet leaves and adorned near dusk with early lit white Christmas lights. I’ve never forgiven myself for not turning my car around to go get the camera.

  130. Joy A says:

    Pumpkins–both to eat and to decorate with!

    The feel of cool & crisp autumn air in the morning.

    mmm…cold weather, football, and yummy food…like apple cider and baked casseroles and pies.

  136. Jen K says:

    I love the cooler temperatures and the colored leaves. And the flocks of geese heading south. And the cozy feeling of getting ready for winter. And any dessert with apples. And, and, and . . . it’s my favorite season. :)

  137. Hope says:

    Absolutely everything about fall, I love! Low humidity, cooler temps, beautiful mums, the beautiful leaves, football, Halloween, jackets, jeans, candy corn, the North Carolina State Fair. I really love it when we get to take a little trip up to the mountains around Boone, Blowing Rock or Ashville for some fall color watching.

  139. Lauren V says:

  145. Molly says:

    The leaves, of course, and the yummy smells- indoors and out!

  146. Patti says:

    Fall is our break from the heat that we have 8 months out of the year. I miss NY falls…the color, apple picking, pumpkin picking…warm cider and donuts, weekends out with the family. Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, regardless of where I am living.

  147. Mystica says:

  241. I love EVERYTHING about Autumn! Who can name one thing? :D I love adding Autumn Decor to my home, the brilliant colors God paints New England, pumpkins & baking, the crisp cool air and the smell of leaves.

    Apple pie, University of Michigan football, changing colors, crisp cool air….everything!

  243. Laura says:

    One of my favorite things about fall is the way the leaves change and there are so vibrant colors on the trees. For me this is also one of the best parts about living in New England, even if it means that eventually all of those beautiful leaves fall and need to be raked up for what seem like days. The blisters are worth it!

  344. Deb C says:

    The scent of the air along with all the beautiful colors.

  346. Linda says:

    My absolute favorite part of fall? Besides the cool crisp weather and the brilliant foliage on the trees, it would have to be the neighborhood trip to the pumpkin patch I organize each year where we can fill a whole car with pumpkins for $60!

I am ready to redecorate the house for fall so I would love to see what Matthew has dreamed up for this fall season.

  359. Kate says:

    Sigh… The growing up i lived close enough to my HS to hear the marching band practicing. we would walk to football games and had the most beautiful colors on our trees. I don’t live there anymore but I get all a nostalgic when I think about the warm coats and crisp air and that distinct aroma. Sadly I will only get a half fall possibly, becase we are moving from VA to SW texas in late October… :(
    I will do my best though to make it look like fall in my home…:)

    The smell, that’s my favorite thing about fall. There’s just a special, different smell in the air. Perhaps the dried fallen leaves, bonfires and cooler air contribute to that unique wonderful smell.

  390. kathleen says:

    I love the Autumn craft fair held in an old barn at an apple farm nearby, where they also have hayrides, pressed apple cider, and the air is so crisp. We can take a walk deeper into the property and see old homestead foundations from the 1600s. It’s a treat after the muggie of summer.

  391. Beth says:

    The changing leaves has to be my favorite thing about fall. Just wouldn’t be the same otherwise!

    Cooler weather! I am totally looking forward to the reprieve from this horribly hot summer. :)

  406. kathy w says:

    I really like the leaves changing colors. Beautiful!

  407. Anne Lukes says:

    I love that Fall has all the pretty colors and that it cools down somewhat here in the Sacto Valley.

    by the way, are you aware that you sometimes use “giveaway” and other times “giveaways” when tagging these kinds of posts? I couldn’t figure out why when I clicked on this post’s “Giveaways” tag (so I could go back and see who had the pleasure of winning) that only some of the previous giveaway posts came up. I had to search for the others and figured out you were using two different words for the same tag. Just thought you might want to fix it one way or the other for consistency and searching sake.

  408. Anne Lukes says:

    Just linked it on Facebook.

  409. Rebecca W. says:

    Unfortunately, I live in Houston where we don’t really have Fall, but I long for it and dream of being somewhere where the weather actually does turn crisp and cool and leaves turn riotous colors before surrendering to the ground!
    My favorite thing about Fall is getting together with my sister for a chat and a cup of tea, while we burn harvest-scented candles and flip through decor magazines!

  410. Rebecca W. says:

    Shared on Facebook!

    Other than relief from our hot humid weather in South Georgia. I so love decorating my house for fall.

  414. Rhonda Z says:

    I love everything about Fall. If I had to pick 1 thing I love the most, it would be, the colors. I adore all of the Autumn colors.

  422. Sarah says:

    My favorite thing about fall is snuggling up on my couch, with a warm blanket, my dogs at my feet, and a nice hot cup of apple cider. Always does the trick. :)

  423. Sara Jane says:

    My favourite thing about Fall is football! Some day when I have won the lottery I will spend every fall where you can actually experience it during the fall season, instead of in December like it is in Dallas. Hard to get excited about fall when you are running the AC and you are still working on your tan in November!

  424. JK says:

    I love how I still get excited just like I did as a kid when Fall came around.

I especially appreciate the resurgence of antique varieties in my neck of the woods, it is so much fun to try so many different types.

  443. Michelle says:

    I live in the desert in Arizona, so fall weather won’t really hit until mid-October. By then, I am just soooo ready for getting outside with the kids to ride bikes, play at the park, go to the zoo, anything just to be outside after being cooped up all summer. Only two more months to go!
