I've been busy gathering up some goodies and have decided to have a giveaway!

What kind of goodies have I got...
oh just a candle by Keepers of the Light in the most wonderul scent of Sweet Potato Pie...mmmhh it does smell ever so good.
Then there is a little wooden bowl filled with little pumpkin pods, 3 old wooden spools that I have put some of my hand~dyed cotton floss on. The floss colors are warm colors of orange, mustard, and barn red. A hand~painted muslin sunflower, 3 little grubby candles, dried sweet annie sprigs, and a lil' smilin' jack~o~lantern that I needle punched.

So come join me in a little Early Fall fun and just leave a comment telling what you like best about Fall.
Maybe it's hay rides, or picking out a pumpkin, local fairs, apple cider, family gatherings, fall gardening, cool crisp days, scarecrows....

If you don't have a blog just leave a email address just in case your the lucky winner.

I'll announce the winner Sunday evening!

Ginger,

What a great giveaway! I would love it if you would enter my name in your draw.

I think that fall is the BEST time of year. I love how the tree's change color, the smell of the falling leaves when you walk in the woods, the cooler nights...and pumpkins:)

bookworm said...

I love the way the yard smells first thing in the morning when everything is still cool and wet. And the colors of fall are a favorite of mine as well!

Jeanette said...

Fall is my favorite season! I grew up in northern California, so I LOVE seeing the leaves change here (since they didn't there). I love the colors, being able to wear a sweater again, fall decorations and just the feeling that comes along with the new season.

Christine said...

You have such a fantastic blog! And what a terrific giveaway!!!

I love fall because: Fall is sunshine and cool breezes, rustling leaves and scents of cinnamon, hay rides and pumpkin picking, slowing down and cozying up, hot cider and warm suppers, knitting warm woolens for colder days...

Becky K in OK said...

Such a great give a way. I love the fall colors and the touch of cool air we get get. And of course, football is in full swing, so I can spend endless hours watching games and stitching!

Watching my husband harvest our corn crop. I know after he gets his crops off the fields it's finished till next year!!! No more worrying if we're going to get too much rain, or not enough rain.LOL!
I love the beautiful fall leaves. Bittersweet~sweet because I love the cool temperatures. Bitter~cuz winter is close.

Gayle said...

Wow Ginger! I'm so glad that Betty mentioned your giveaway on her blog. What wonderful goodies you have! My favorite thing about fall is the cool temperatures - the high temps of summer just put me through the ringer. Can't wait to hear if I win!

Robin said...

Awsome Fall Goodies !! I love everything about Fall !! The cooler temps, the clouds get thicker and hang lower, the sound of the wind as it blows through the dying leaves, the moon gets brighter and the sun get's darker....The smell of crisp air and a wood stove burning in the distance..The colors of bright orange, yellow and crimson..... What's not to love ?...lOL

Thanks Betty for the mention on your blog about the giveaway.

With all these memories of fall I can hardly wait!

WoolenSails said...

Long walks on the beach with my dog. No crowds, a cool breeze and the swells churning against the sand. In in the distant views the strands of forest with the changing leaves, who could ask for more:)

I love the changing the clocks so that it gets dark early and I'm all settled in the house early and it's colder and crisp out. Beautiful fall colors on the trees with bright blue skies with a nip in the air. Pumpkins and cider and back to burning candles and the scent they release in my home. Saying goodbye to summer and the heat and humidity. Can't wait!!! ~Cyndi who

Patti said...

Fall is my favorite season and I just love your fall focused give-away! I can't decide what my favorite part is:
The sound of crunching leaves as you rake them up.
The smell of the roast cooking in the oven as I rake the leaves, mingled with the cinnamon and pumpkin of the pumpkin pie.
The earthy flavors of the pumpkin, cinnamon paired with apple cider.
The feel of the smooth pumpkin then the goopy insides as I clean it out to carve.
The sight of all the autumn colors in the leaves of the trees.
I guess I just love it all!
Blessings, Patti

woolyredrug said...

Ginger, What a sweet and generous spirit...

I love the smell of wood smoke from the fireplace...the sight of the trees a blaze with the changing leaves...the sound of the wind swirling the leaves to the ground...apples...squash and pumpkins...apples...and more apples!!!

I LOVE Fall!

Hi Ginger,
I love the fall because as a teacher, it means the start of another year of new possibilities! Meeting my new students, the excitement, the first high school football game, the babble of young people's voices, listening to their summer experiences. It's all wonderful!
Love your blog,
MaryB

Pots 'n Prims said...

What a generous give-away!
I love the cool, crip air of fall...leaves falling...earlier evenings! And those gorgeous rusty colored mums!

ihook2 said...

Oh Ginger, you are so generous. When I think of fall it brings back memories of when I was a child. We used to gather at my grandparents house (all of the aunts, uncles, nephews, great aunts etc. about 25 of us)for a day of hog killing. It sounds so gross now! All us kids had so much fun playing all kinds of games. The adults would make scrapple, stuff sausage,cut up meat and package it and cook lard. Wouldn't the FDA have a field day now?? Doesn't that take us back in time? Guess you had to be a country kid in the '50's to know about all that stuff. Fall is my favorite time of the year.

That is a cool give away. I love the smell of fall and the beautiful colors of the leaves. Kay Lynn

Marianne said...

You are so generous! And what a wonderful give away!
I love the smell of pumpkin nut bread or apple pie wafting through the air. And the sound of the rustling leaves beneath my horse's feet when we ride. Long walks with our dog, and mama cat trotting along too, in the crisp air. Nature's last hurrah as the leaves turn warm shades of red, gold, rust and brown. At the end of the day the crackling fire in the fireplace completes the mood.

I followed the link over from Primitive Betty's blog. What a great giveaway - please include me in the drawing!

Growing up in New England, autumn was always my favorite time of year. The smell in the air as that undercurrent of chillness set in, the excitement of the earlier dusk, the busyness of preparing for a new school year, the visual delight of the changing trees .... Sadly, I live far from home nowadays, but autumn still stirs a sense of excitement and promise. And this time of year always brings back many happy memories of years past.

Kathy (woolfind) said...

Saw this over on Betty's blog. Thanks Betty! My favorite thing about Fall is color. Color, color, color. God is awesome with each season. If we'd only stop to take a look now and then. I also love the smell of candles with cinnamon and any other combination. I love Summer, but Fall is right behind because it's not too cold yet. I become a hermit after that lol.

Hi Ginger,
I love fall because there are pumpkins everywhere I look...I've never met a pumpkin I didn't love...any size, any color, they just bring me joy~the cool nights make my cats race around playing and causing a rucus...fall lifts my spirits and inspires me to create...and, I blame you for this...have ordered my first frame just for needlepunch, your post about the frames got me thinking I HAD to start a collection too!

Katy Lin :) said...

Ginger, I just found your blog through Trudy, and I love it!

Fall is definitely my favorite season, next to spring and summer and winter (I love that there is something different to love about all of them, lol!) my favorite parts of fall are the decorations the leaves changing, and picking out a pumpkin to carve! :) thank you for such a generous giveaway!

kamewh said...

I love the cooler weather and caramel apples! Thank you for the giveaway!

Tammy said...

What a wonderful idea!
What I miss most about Autumn
The glorious riot of color GOD puts on display to warm our soul as the weather turns crisp.

paula said...

What isn't there to love about fall. I can not pick just a few things about the fall.

Anonymous said...

Ginger: I found my way over through Trudy's blog. What a neat blog and wonderful Fall offerings for one lucky person! We have a bonfire down by our pond near Halloween.Our kids and grandkids never miss coming. We have a weiner roast and then do s'mores. We sit on hay bales, the moon is out, the leaves swirling, but the best sight or sound is to see the faces of the children in the moon light, laughing without a care in the world. It's a magical time! I also love to "nest" and hook by the fire!

I love fall because God gave it to us, in all its perfection. Whether it's the SIGHTS--the vibrant colors, the farm stores,or the SMELLS--cinnamon and apple, hot chocolate, or the TASTES--crisps, pumpkin bars w/ cream cheese frosting, or the SOUNDS--of rustling leaves, the crackle of the fire on a crisp night, or the FEEL of fall--the bumps and ridges of a pumpkin, the cold, ruby-red cheeks of a child, the fuzziness of a sweater, He got it right and I will thank and praise Him.

Gollywobbles said...

First it's a pleasure to be lead to your blog! Second, Fall is my most favorite time of year. My creative juices get a big energized jump start and carries me right through the quiet season of winter. It is my most favorite time of year to power walk in the crisp air, rosy cheeks, scnet of wood stoves burning, crunchy leaves, hayrides wrapped in wool blankets, pumpkins, and beautiful fall colors everywhere!~ A Pleasure to find you, and read such inspiring comments from all your readers. Thanks for sharing. Blessings from Gollywobbles

swede@avci.net said...

I love your giveaway & your blog. What I love best about fall is the smell in the air, taking rides & looking @ the leaves in their splendor, stocking my pantry for winter, making fires in our woodstove, and a big pot of soup simmering on the stove.

Ginger, Fall is my favorite time of the year and has been for many years. Cooler days, colorful leaves and mums, just knowing that the hot, dog days of summer are over and the holidays are ahead. Your neat fall items just add to the fun of FALL!! Have had so much fun reading your blog. You are such a neat gal.

Sandy Smith said...

Here in New York's Mid-Hudson Valley, fall is our big season! We've got gorgeous leaves in the Catskills, PYO apple orchards and pumpkin fields everywhere, and a fall festival of some sort in every town. Yay!

Growing up on a farm in Fall meant Grandma would soon be getting out hooked rugs to cover bare hard wood floors! Changing airy summer curtains for ones of a heavier material. Getting out cooler weather school clothing which always needed to be lengthened which required us to stand while she pinned the new hem. Helping to harvest seasonal crops and the dreaded walking behind a tractor/wagon to pick up corn missed by the picker. Attending a family picnic at my uncle's cabin before it got too dark or cold (no electric .. just a fireplace). Hiking in the surrounding woods as leaves fluttered from the trees and watching small animals scurry as we crossed their paths! Fond memories of bygone days!

I just love fall! A trip to the local apple orchard, baking apple crisps, leaves crunching beneath my feet, and some craft fairs to get me in the decorating spirit.

I love to decorate for Halloween, and try to make it as scary as possible. Even my 21 year old daughter hates to sit in the dining room because of the full size witch I put there every year! I also love to put out all the naturals that come with fall, pumpkins, bittersweet, gourds, hay, etc. It will be here before we know it.

Marissa said...

Of course, Fall is my fav time of year! I think my favorite part is the wonderful smells. I love burning fall candles, the smell of apple cider and yummy pumpkin pie. Fall doesn't last long enough around here.

Hugs,
Marissa

Lea of Farmhouse Blessings said...

Oh Ginger, fall is simply my favorite time of all the year. I love tall those things you mentioned but one of my very favorites is the first fire of autumn in the wood stove. The soft light shining throught the room and the smell of the wood smoke wafting through the air. It is just one of the most wonderful feelings.

I love your little fall arrangement. It is delightful!

Smiles,
Lea

Susan said...

Fall is my favorite season! Am so looking forward to decorate Halloween themes around the house and the smell of cider, pumpkin pies and acorns. Count me in your contest.

Hi, Ginger -

I, too, have an October 1 birthday, like Beth, and my brother's is on October 7, so it's a great time to celebrate being alive! Fall is my favorite season - lots of tamaracks, maples, sumac, Virginia creeper, and more changing colors; brilliant red mountain ash berries attracting all the birds; ripe tomatoes and late vegetables from the garden; crisp crunchy leaves to walk through on the way to work and school; Indian corn decorations to make for the front door; Glacier and Yellowstone parks are ours again, with all the slow-driving visitors gone; bonfires are safe again down at the ranch; time to get out well-loved quilts for the beds and to hang on the wall; leaving the house windows open during the day instead of having to close everything up at 7 a.m. to keep it cool most of the day; and creating delightful Halloween costumes for "kids" of all ages. Not to mention making applesauce, huckleberry pie, zucchini bread, tomato and basil salad with feta . . . Mmmm-mmmm! Hope you're feeling well and enjoying the summer and Sloan, Ginger.

Take good care -

Kathleen

Ginger, I love your wonderful goodies and it's so generous of you. Fall offers so much to us. The crispness of the air, football games and people cheering.
