I love fall because it reminds me of France in the Fall, tres beautiful...

Monique :)

Patti said...

Fall is my absolutely most favorite season! Mostly because I love the colors of fall - and the way the colored leaves look against the clear blue sky. Days are often beautiful without being too hot. Mornings are crisp - sometimes with little bits of fog floating over the fields about waist high and lower. I love fall foods - pumpkin pie, soups and baked squash with lots of butter and brown sugar. I love the garden bounty that lingers as the days cool down - the last of the tomatoes, summer squash, corn. I love Halloween and all the scary, cute ghosty, witchy, scarecrow-y decorations. Fall is just my mostest favorite time of year!!!!

Dandelion Quilts said...

I love pumpkin pie, carving pumpkins, and the changing leaves.

Martha said...

I am seriouly jealous. I live in Central Louisiana. It's still 90 degrees outside.
My favorite thing about fall is making pumpkin pie with my kindergarteners from the pumpkin, seeing all those wonderful expressions when they dive in to the 'pumpkin guts'!

Sherri said...

I love fall because we can finally enjoy being outside! I also love the colors, the decorations, and the chill in the air in the mornings!

Sandy said...

the smell of burning leaves- or what really is yummy the smell of tailgate parties

Jenn said...

I love fall because of all the changing leaves and how pretty everything is and lets not forget school starts . haha

Midlife Mom said...

My favorite things about fall are the trips we take to go pumpkin picking! it is such fun to go through the fields looking for that just right pumpkin for my front porch! We usually end up getting about 20!!

gariquilts said...

I live in the South where fall comes late and green stays long. However, what I love is looking for the sprinkeling of reds and golds. I think because we don't see a lot of the color I really appreciate it more.

Kristan said...

i love the fresh apples...and apple picking.
andrewandkristan(at)hotmail(dot)com

Rose said...

I live in the country and I love being able to step outside and hear my family on the tractors working to bring in the last of the crops and hay. I also love when the evenings start to cool off and we can have fires in the old wood burner once again. Those things both bring me peace.

I would love to be entered in your drawing, the little quilt is adorable!

Winona said...

I love fall. I love all the colors and pumpkins. I love the smell of the apple orchard when we go to pick apples. I love the way we have to start rushing to get prepared for the long winter. This is just my favorite time of the year.

chq said...

I love fall, I love walking outside and having the air be cool, I love to wear hoodies, and snuggling under quilts at night.

Thanks,

Cherri

Karen Dianne Lee said...

Well that's easy for me. What I love about fall is the freedom to go outside again with my dogs. As the heat subsides I can once again breathe in the fresh air. I can move about. I can "over do it" in the yard. I love yard work. After months of being trapped inside with MS & saving myself from the heat, I can once again come out and play!

I'm grateful for fall.

Melzie said...

I love the way the air feels, and how the color in the air changes to an almost golden warm color :)

Lisa said...

Fall is my favorite season.. Living in Florida we don't get to enjoy leaves changing color (I've seen it a few time and it's beautiful).

swooze said...

Wow...when I think of fall I think of growing up in NY. The crispness in the air, the smell of the fallen leaves. That earthy smell from the decay. That frost on the ground. And what I love is the beautiful color all around in the trees. I sure miss seeing the NY falls.

Stewpot said...

Paula, I do not have a blog but our youngest does:
http://onestepcloser2god.blogspot.com/

Fall is a refreshing time of the year after our hot summers... A time for leisurely walks and weekends camping...it reminds me of festivals growing up, especially the Westside Nutclub Fall Festival and all of its wonderful food. As a Christian I am reminded that though the seasons change, God's Word never changes. His Truth endures forever

Needled Mom said...

I love the crisp air, the colors of the leaves and the very lovely smell of warm fires.

barbarabaker said...

What I personally love about fall is being able to pull out all those lovely sweaters that you don't need the rest of the year. I love the nippy mornings and evenings at the first turn of weather and I love being able to enjoy an occasional coffee in the stark of day since it's a bit chillier.

Great giveaway!!!

I love the smells of fall. They are so rich and invigorating! I just want to constantly eat pumpkin pie, apple pie, turkey, etc. Diet, anyone?

Granny Lyn said...

oh, I LOVE the cooler weather and the smell of blowing leaves!! The colors are awesome, too!!

Diane said...

I LOVE Autumn! It is my favorite time of year and has all of my favorite colors! What a neat idea to have a Fall give-a-way. Don't put my name in the pot for drawing because even though I LOVE the tree quilt and the fabrics, the coffee and chocolate would be no use to me. I just wanted to let you know I am back to the blog world and I stopped by.
Love you!

Jana said...

I love fall because the weather turns cooler and I can then get out my sweaters to wear. It's the perfect season. Still too warm for coats but too cold for short sleeves. I love the crisp cool mornings and nights!

What do I love about fall?
The changing leaves as viewed from the car driving down a 2-lane road remind me of when I was little girl going to visit my grandparents for our annual fall fun day (cider mill, picking/pressing leaves, picking a bushel of apples so gram can make the world's best apple sauce and apple pie, playing in leaf piles, hot chocolate at the end of the day followed by a book read to me by gram and gramps while I snuggled in bed). Each year when I spot the first turning leaves I get a brief pulse of sadness followed by a flood of joy as the memories of fall fun day come back to me. Both grandparents have been gone for more than 10 years and I miss them terribly. When I got married my DH and I started our of fall fun day. This is, by far, my favorite time of year.

Fall is my favorite time of year. When the weather turns cooler I get out my sweaters and socks, bundle up under a quilt (that I am handquilting) and eat some candy corn!

Janice said...

I love the cooler weather. I love all the falling leaves and the fall colours.

Ann said...

I love fall camping, walks with my beagle in the leaves and her "finding" treasures and reburying them in the leaves. And I love the early nights and more time to quilt!

Lynda said...

What do I love about Autumn? Walking through the dead leaves and hearing them scrunch, to bring back childhood memories.

What do I love about Fall, is that it is my favorite time of the year! Really! 8-)

whitestone said...

I can't believe I haven't already commented on your giveaway! If I have, count me once, not twice. LOL. The best part of fall are the days BEFORE the first killing frost. And the incredible blue skies that we see that time of year.

Jessica said...

I love the cool weather, the gorgeous colors of the leaves, pumpkins, chai, and reading under blankets.

Oh, how I miss fall! I used to live in Pennsylvania where fall would appear sometime around the end of August, beginning of September. Crisp nights, leaves turning colors, hay rides out in the pumpkin patch, and cold apple cider, that's what I love about fall!

The golden leaves and cool days excite me.

I love fall! I love the cool evenings and the cold rains, the leaves falling like snowflakes. I love the smell of crisp apples and the site of pumpkins on the porch! But most of all I love the fact that the hot, summer days are over!
