Fall Giveaway!

Fall is without a doubt my favorite season of the year, if Christmas doesn't count as a season.  For the sake of my being able to name them both, we'll say fall is my favorite season and Christmas is my favorite holiday!  :)

I've just started getting out my fall decorations and slowly sprinkling them throughout the decor.  As I'm sitting here typing this post, there is "the look" of fall ouside...... if you know what I mean......it's overcast and the leaves on the trees are rippling in the wind!  I've gone through the house turning on my lamps, adding to that cozy feeling that fall offers!

Anyway, since I'm so anxious for fall to arrive, I decided I'd love to share my excitement and have a fall giveaway!  Someone else will just have a little something more to add to their fall decor!  :)

Here's what's included:
You may double click on the picture to take a closer look.

I didn't do the stitchery.  It was lovingly stitched by my friend, Betty, who loves to stitch!  She gave me quite a few stitcheries "to do with what I would like".  As a matter of fact, she has spoiled me because I haven't done a stitchery in over a year because I have quite a stash of beautiful ones waiting to be framed!   So....all I had to do was tea dye it, paint the frame, add the homespun border and then frame it!  Also included is a little rustic wooden bucket of fall picks of leaves, pumpkins, berries and pinecones.   

Entering is simple. To have your name entered once, just leave me a comment and tell me your favorite thing about fall.   To be entered twice, let me know that you are also a follower.  New followers are gladly welcomed!  And lastly, you can be entered a total of 3 times by posting the giveaway on your blog.  If you don't have a blog, be sure and leave an email address or email me with your email address privately, so I may contact you if you are the winner!   

The winner will be drawn on Wednesday, September 15th at noon (central time) and announced shortly after.  Oh, and due to shipping costs, the giveaway is open to those in the continental US.  (So sorry to have to do that....I wish shipping costs were more reasonable).       

Thanks so much for stopping by and entering!  And thank you to my followers, or as I prefer to say "faithful readers".  I really appreciate you!  :)

Please count me in on this giveaway Tammy. I love stitcheries and Betty did a great job on this one. You know I follow you girl and I will put this on my sidebar.
I think what I love most about fall is Mums. They are my favorite flower. The colors your find them in are so brilliantly burning and that reminds me of a bright firey Autum day.

Hey, Tammy,
I love crisp, cool mornings, warm afternoons with slow moving bees buzzing around and cool evenings so you can have a fire to toast marshmallows. I love falling leaves of every color. I love watching the squirrels scurry about, hiding their nuts and corn. I love when the spiders build their webs all the way across the road overnight. I love watching the caterpillars cross the lawn, looking for a place to build their cocoons. I love the smell of the woods when the leaf fall. And I love picking up hickory nuts, picking them out and making apple crisp with an oatmeal/hickory nut topping. I love high school football games. I love making apple butter and apple sauce.
I am a follower since before they made the widget.
I love your giveaway items.
I am posting on my sidebar and my facebook.
I hope you find as much to love about fall/autumn as I do. It is the very best time of the year!!!

Terryp said...

I would also like to be entered in your giveaway. What beautiful items. Fall is absolutely my favorite season. I love the crisp air, apple picking, having to wear a sweater and just the overall feel in the air. Summertime really wipes me out. I hate the heat. Fall is a time when I clean everything that should have been a couple of months ago, but it was just too hot. I LOVE FALL!!!

SANDI said...

Please enter me in your give away.

I am a follower of your blog and your journey to get Luke. He is adorable!!!

Fall is my favorite for cooler temperatures, the smell of pumpkin candles burning and the wonderful colors of the leaves turning.

Dear Tammy, what a lovely family you have. You truly are blessed. Is that a photo of your home at the top of your blog? I just love love love it. Living in Texas, my favorite thing about fall is the cool weather...it's such a welcome relief from the heat of summer. And believe it or not, we do have fall color. It's certainly not as vibrant as other parts of the country, but nontheless, it is gorgeous. Happy Fall to you and your family.

Mel said...

Hello Tammy,
I'd love to put my name in for the drawing. You know what I love about fall, is the clear sky at night that gives way to all the stars that shine so bright. I love the aroma the maple trees put off in the fall, I love the smells of the foods we cook in the fall for holidays, pumpkin bread, apple pies, turkey...... etc.
I do believe, I'm one of your followers (an original)from just a ways back.

Blessings,
Mel

It would be so much easier to ask me what I don't like about Fall!
I just love it all. My favorite must be cozy nights reading aloud, with the children nestled under blankets, sipping homemade cocoa from scratch.

I love your blog and I'm a new follower. The thing I love about fall is the show of beautiful colors that Mother Nature treats us to at this time of year. Also September is my birth month and that makes it special to me too!

vwestermeyer said...

I love fall for so many reasons!! It seems like the start of a new year to me (all those back to school memories with the kids I guess); I love the colors, the crispness of the air and jeans and sweatshirts!

Y1M said...

Hi Tammy~

I am a follower of your blog and have followed some time now.

Fall, is by far my FAVORITE SEASON. Love everything about, except the short time it is with us. I love the way it stimulates all of my senses. I find myself desiring to bake more during this time of the year. Also, I get great pleasure in watching all creatures going about their business during this time as well.
I would love if you would add me to your list for your fered giveaway. Best of luck to everyone who enters. :)

Robins Things said...

My favorite thing about fall is that it is one season closer to Spring!!!! Really!!! Where I live fall is bland. No wonderful color or cold weather to look forward too. We do get cooler nights, & some days.
You are very gracious to host a giveaway. Thank You
