♥ A Fall Giveaway ♥

Fall is coming! We’ve been having some cooler temperatures here and it’s really putting me in the mood for fall! So…..I thought I’d do a little fall giveaway and since my birthday is next week, I’ll draw out the winner on my birthday, which will be just in time for the winner to decorate in September for fall! I know I’ll be pulling out my fall decorations that first weekend in September! I can’t wait!

I’ve always liked the date of my birthday, August 28th. I have fond memories of that month……..I would get new school clothes, celebrate my birthday, get to go to the Fair, and then fall would come. And we all know after that comes Christmas. So August is a pretty good month, in my opinion. :)

Okay. I know I’ve kept you waited long enough. Are you ready to see what’s going to be included in the fall giveaway?



First of all, there’s an 11 x 14 framed fall stitchery in distressed burnt orange that reads “P is for Pumpkin…..Stitched by my hand….Autumn”. Also included is a cute little gift basket that includes cinnamon-orange spice room spray, refresher oil, and rose hips. And last of all, I’m also including two soaps from Bath & Body Works......one in sweet cinnamon pumpkin and the other in warm apple cider.  (Both smell yummy)!

To enter, just leave a comment on this post letting me know your favorite thing about fall. Being a follower on Google will get you another entry. If you’d like to follow by Linky Tools also, I’ll add another entry. New followers are welcomed!  :)  And last of all, by posting about my giveaway on your blog (either in a post or on your sidebar) I'll give you another entry.  Because of shipping costs, only entries from  the U.S. can be accepted.  (I'm so sorry....wish it wasn't so expensive to ship stuff)!  

That’s it. The drawing will take place next Tuesday, August 28th, on my birthday!

And I’d like to just take this time right now to thank each and every person that visits my blog! I sure do appreciate you! I love my followers, new ones and long time ones. Thank you for the comments and for your friendship!

***********************************************************************************************************

Today is also my parents' anniversary, so I'd like to wish them both a Happy 53rd Anniversary!  Thanks for being a great example to me in your marriage!  I love you both!   :)

Hi, Tammy! My favorite things of fall are of course, the beautiful colors, the crisp air, getting out my spiced apple, pumpkin, and gingerbread scents for my tart burner, and helping my hubby get in all of the firewood needed for winter. So many joys of fall, it has to be my favorite season. :)

Heather Lee said...

Happy Anniversary to your Mom & Dad and Happy Birthday to you! I LOVE decorating for fall inside and outside the house. The wonderful smells of pumpkins & spice, the fall colors, decorating with pumpkins,gords,mums and cornstalks. It's also special to me because Sept's also my Mom's and my birthday month. And I love going to haunted houses and haunted corn fields. :) What a great give away!

Laura Lane said...

Fall is apple cider with mulling spices, chai tea, cocoa, missing our wood stove, soup simmering on the stove, bread baking in the oven, the smells of pumpkin and cinnamon coming from my oven or my favorite candles.

Fall is snuggling up with a good book while I listen to the rain falling outside, thankful that my children are gathered around me.

marnie said...

Fall is the best for the cooler temps, the beautiful colors and being able to have my family and friends surrounding me. I loved it especially when the kids were smaller. The earlier darkness meant they were in the house longer - which meant spending more time together, reading, playing games.

Happy Anniversary to your parents.
Happy Birthday to you!!

Marnie

Marilyn said...

Dear Tammy, I hope your parents had a beautiful day for their anniversary. Congratulations to them both!

I too am looking forward to the cooler weather. It is funny that you should mention it because my daughter and I went out to the store today and they were unpacking all of their fall and Halloween decorations. Although I must admit I will not miss the summer even though it did fly by.

My favorite thing about the fall, especially this year, is all the baking! I've missed not being able to turn my oven on in this summer heat. I love fall baking especially!

I would love to enter your giveaway, and I will certainly make a note to stop by for your birthday post.

Blessings dear, your friend, Catherine xo

And what I love most about fall,the craft show is over, Mr. P doesn't work in the shop as long, darkness comes early and we have more snuggle time in the evening. I so love the slower pace that comes with fall and winter and spending time with my famuily. Have a great day

Pam the Realtor said...

Best thing about fall? The weather finally cools off! Living in Phoenix and making it thru our brutal summers every year always makes me count the days until fall. Unfortunately, fall doesn't really arrive here until late October or sometimes even into November. It's not unusual for us to still have temps over 100 the first two weeks in October.

The other thing I love about fall is I get to plant my winter flowers. My winter flowers usually consist of Geraniums, pansy, petunias etc. All of your summer flowers! They will last until May when we heat up again.
