I put a link to your give-away on my blog! I SO want to win that pillow!! I LOVE quilted pillows. And that one is so cute and perfect. I have been lurking for a few weeks now. I enjoy your blog a lot!

Adam and Kristina said...

Yay for free stuff! And I'm so glad Torina posted here. Marci, her blog was one of the adoption blogs I emailed you.

And I love the colored leaves when it becomes fall.

Torina said...

In my excitement over that pillow, I forgot to post my favorite thing about fall. It is by far the smell. I love the smell of crushed autumn leaves when hiking in the woods.

That fall pillow is so cute! I love fall because it reminds me of the things that are important to me. As soon as I feel the cool crisp air and start to see the colored leaves my heart instantly starts to beat faster because fall is when Rob and I met. I told Rob that it never fails every fall I get all excited and crazy like when I just started to date him. I'm glad this feeling has never gone away. Just goes to show I'm still madly in love with him.

I MUST, I MUST, I MUST have a chance to win one of your TREASURES! This is ABSOLUTELY adorable!

My favorite thing about fall? The weather...the trees...the smells. EVERYTHING!

Innocent Observer said...

My favorite thing about fall is the crisp air, and the way it makes everyone start to gather together indoors. And the cooking, getting ready for winter. I love getting together with my friends to put up food.

If I win, please send my winnings to Torina. Not that I wouldn't love the pillow (I would!) I just really want her to have it more than I want it for myself. Thank you!

The Tolman Family said...

You know I love FALL. It is may FAVORITE time of year. First of all, it is when I got married to my AWESOME husband. But I also love the smell of fall when we go up in the moutains to see the colors. Then of course I grow my corn in the summer, just so I can have my cornstock to decorate with. I was looking at your story the other day and I think I might want to get one of the pumpkin pics that you have done. I put this on my blog too.

Susan said...

I love that pillow! My favorite autumn thing is apples. Baked apples, apple pie and baskets of apples on my table.

haley said...

cool mornings that require a sweat shirt and warm socks!!! waking up early for school (now kamryn's school) and smelling the freshness of fall air. (oh, and i also loved the smell of grandma's house in the fall... she was always bottling or baking up something yummy!!!) and i'm putting you up on my blog... both blogs!

Tammy (Mom to this crazy bunch) said...

I love that pillow!! My favorite thing about Fall is watching the kids play in the leaves. We lived in an area for 13 years where there were very few trees and the leaves would fall and blow away imediately. Watching them play in the leaves now is so fascinating to me. It is a true picture of the season. And I love the dadgum cooler temps.

The Oylers said...

That is so adorable! I absolutely love the cool fresh air, and I miss it terribly, living in Houston I don't get a true autumn. I just love being able to wear sweaters and the leaves changing color. I love burning candles that smell like fall and cooking food like stew and cornbread. Oh I love that time of year!

Karin said...

Love the scent of the air--Autumn has a special beauty like no other time of year.

Annalee Kelly said...

I love fall spices (cinnamon, nutmet, ginger and cloves), I love sweaters and soups and LDS General Conference! I hope it's okay I commented -- I'm from Apron Girls!
Happy Autumn, everyone!

Felicia said...

Ooh, I have fall fever too! Actually I'm forgetting about what the calendar and the thermometer say and I'm getting out my fall stuff TODAY!!! I just can't wait any longer.

I love the pumpkins, the pumpkin desserts, the strudel and spice candle that I buy EVERY year from Scentinel Candle Co., the crisp air, making soup, homemade bread, apple desserts, school starting :o), thinking thankful thoughts, homemade pies, and getting back into "quilting season".

I'm adding this to my blog...even though it will cut my chances of winning because I'll have more people to contend with :o)

girlsmama said...

I love the temp shift and the smell of pumpkin spice cookies and apple cider!

Ryan and Cecily said...

My favorite thing about Autumn is walking through crunchy leaves on the ground.

Marci said...

oooohhhh so many good answers! i'm getting more and more excited for fall with every comment!!!!

Reed and Nat's Family said...

Hi! I'm Haley's cousin's wife. My favorite thing about fall is my Birthday, leaves crunching, crisp air, and the scents of pumpkin, cinnamon, etc, etc.

Holly said...

My favorite time of year is Fall. My husband and I got married 9 years ago this fall. Our reception was decorated in fall colors. We even had pumpkins with fall leaves coming out of them as our center pieces. I think I need this pillow because it would go so well with my decorations in my house that are in the ... you got it fall colors. I am so sick of this heat. I would love a fall afternoon to rake up all my beautiful leaves.

mommymelb said...

I love that I can wear all of my cute sweaters and long sleeved shirts. I also love the excitement of school starting and the changing leaf colors (which beg to be gathered into a pile and jumped into!)

Cari said...

Fall is my favorite season especially now that I live in the Mid-south. Growing up in So. California we didn't really have "Fall" so I would buy squashes, pumpkins, indian corn and lots of fall colored leaves to bring in the warmth of fall. Here in the Mid-south, I get to see the seasons change and I love the colors that the tress turn into here. I feel all warm and cozy. Also, thanksgiving is in the fall and I love to give thanks and serve others this time of year.

Fall is my favorite season, for a variety of reasons. Thanksgiving and my birthday usually fall on the same week, sometimes even on the same day. I love the warm and cozy FEEL of autumn. I think that's my favorite part - it's just so cozy!

Oh so cute!

I like fall because of the harvest and that my kids go back to school, but I really don't like that winter comes right after it.

I LOVE this pillow! So fun! My favorite thing about fall is Halloween. I love to see all the kiddies dress up. By the way, thanks for the nice comment you left on my blog. I got the quilt with her nursery crib set. I bought it at Burlington Coat Factory, and I have loved it!
