Garden, Home and Party: Fall Favorites

Note of Appreciation:  Some time ago my blog friend Leslie of Around the Table had a giveaway.  Winner would receive one of the fabulous candle holders called Glassybaby.  These beauties are made in Seattle and come in nearly every color under the sun.  Well, imagine my delight and surprise, I won.  {Thank you Leslie}  If you’ve not already discovered Around the Table blog site, stop by.  Leslie shares fabulous design ideas, great (and healthy) recipes and skin care information. Did I mention she has a degree in nutrition and is a licensed medical aesthetician.  Most importantly, her posts are always useful and fun!

Hi Everyone.  I feel so much better.  Seriously, to those readers that host a blog, don’t you sometimes feel like you’ve run out of ideas for a new post…in fact, I sometimes think, “what frivolous topics I gab on about, what am I thinking?”  That’s what vacations are for.  The break brought home that the fun of this is the blog friends and readers that check in, even if they don’t comment, and the creative wheels that turn each time I work on a post.  So, thank you for your interest, friendship (of an internet variety) and support.  I so appreciate it.

Are we there yet…has autumn arrived?  I don’t care if it is still warmer than ideal fall weather should be, I’m sharing my annual autumn favorites.  [It reminds me of back-to-school, when the new sweater was worn that first week back because you loved it and didn’t care if it was 90 degrees outside]

If you missed my fall favorites last year, have a look.  You’ll see I haven’t changed much of what appeals to me about the season, other than to add additional images. 10 photographs just wouldn’t allow me all that I love about this time of year.

I always pause before stating this is my favorite season because when spring comes around, I think this is my favorite season!  But it’s September 25th and I’m looking forward to the short weeks from now when I can expect to wear turtleneck sweaters, put a fire in the fireplace, have a casserole in the oven and a hot beverage in my hand.

Enjoy!

Sitting by a fire, what could be more cozy?  Having reason to stay indoors and read a book or two, one more reason to love cooler weather.

I love turtleneck sweaters…this is definitely a reason to love autumn/winter.

Fall/Winter means comfort food for me.  I use portion control to avoid winter waist expansion, but here are a couple of recipes that you might enjoy when it cools down…
