  7. I love to cover myself under a big woolen plaid. And snooze a little more...



  8. i totally did not wait patiently for autumn... i cried and sweated and fell on my knees and crawled, gasping, over june, july, and august until i collapsed into september.

    but i'm a happy girl now. :-p

    so when the weather is cool, i open my window and burn my favorite incense while the wind whispers to my curtains. i drink massive amounts of coffee, gently creamed, and listen to music and soul-search and write. but most importantly, i breathe. i don't think i breathed all summer.

  9. i love putting on my fav fall jacket and some boots and heading out for a quiet autumn walk!

  37. Hi laura!

    what a good bundle of giveaway items!

    Here in Scotland, autumn is unfortunately NOT the welcome relief from hot sunny days that it is in other places, since summer is never really much of a thing here. that said, i just came back from summer traveling and i'm settling into university again, so my favorite thing this season is the cozy nesting of drinking tea, doing my reading with my strand of fairy lights strung up around my bed, and snuggling up under my handmade quilt. now if only i didn't have to get back to my reading....

    p.s. waiting impatiently for my skylinefever tank to arrive! :)

I also love to gather some of the leaves in all the shades and place them in a basket on the dining table as simple decoration...Autumn is absolutely my favourite season!

  58. I think I share very similar tastes with most people when it comes to my favorite things that autumn brings with it. I love the smells-pumpkin spice, ginger cookies, crisp fall air; I love the sights-the wonderful orange&red&yellow colors, the pumpkin patches, natures true beauty; I love the feeling-cooler days, cheerful-ness, cuddling and of course the tastes of anything hot and sweet.

    Sending thanks to the sponsors shortly after posting this comment :)

  59. Autumn is my favorite time of year! I love baking anything with pumpkin in it and making big pots of stew/soup/chili that simmer on the stove for hours! Decorating for fall is great too...mums, gourds, pumpkins...oh my! :)

  60. i absolutely adore fall. the colors, scarves & mittens, boots, hot cocoa, pumpkin pie, family...do I have to choose a favorite?

    Fall has always seemed like one long lazy day to me, a chance to slow down and catch my breath. Summers are always so busy, and the holidays are crazy, but in early fall I like to just curl up with a cup of tea and a blanket and be cozy.



Thank you so much for your sweet comments!
