Give-a-way! Leave a post! -- update

If you would like a chance to win these lovely earrings (below), please leave me a post by the end of today as I will be choosing one random-number (via Random.org) and posting the name tomorrow morning! :)


I'm at the swim meet today. So... I decided to do a give-a-way for fun. :)

In honor of Fall, leave me a post reply and tell me what you like most about this season.
I'll use Random.org to figure up the winner (choosing a random number from those who enter). The winner will receive a lovely pair of "Forest Seeds" earrings.

Tonight and tomorrow I'll begin the shipping process for all those who ordered items (that do not have to be custom-made). If you get a shipping confirmation, your item will ABSOLUTELY ship on Monday as I will be the one shipping it (no helpers this weekend). I'd like everyone to get their things before I leave for vacation. My schedule will be to work tomorrow afternoon/evening, Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday I am getting my hair cut (it's been three months! Yikes!) and cleaning my house... Thursday I'll be packing for Friday's departure. So, there you have it. My week in review and I KNOW it's going to fly by! (Yeah!)

I will post some photos of our Swim meet today. I love my new camera. When I look at the photos of swimmers with the water shooting up into the air and the light hitting it, well, it's just the most awesome thing. With my old point-and-shoot, everything would have been blurry and I'd miss altogether. I love technology!

Okay, I'm off! I'll talk to you later!
Have a wonderful day!

Fall is my favorite season.... The smell of fireplaces burning, the sound of leaves crunching underfoot, the baking of all things homemade! Oh, the coziness if it all!
Fall is the best season!

I love the Fall, it's my favorite season! There is so much inspiration in all of the beautiful colors. I love to watch my kids playing in the piles of leaves! Makes for some beautiful photographs! :)

Fall is great! Friday nights spent watching the local High School football games sipping hot chocolate out of a thermos. Walking through our local eucalyptus trees looking up at the aerial dance of Monarch butterflies awakened and charged by streams of sunlight. Traipsing though the sand dunes to sit mesmerized watching whales breach on their way down to Mexico. Putting flannel sheets and down comforters back on our bed. Breathing in lungs full of crisp, leaf scented air and hearing the crunch of leaves under our feet on our early morning walks. Is it possible there is any better season??

You inspire me. I am now looking for a lampwork class in my area! Fall is the perfect time for "inside hobbies" and home made soup... and warm quilts and someone special to snuggle with.

Fall is the beginning of all the great holidays that I look forward to. Special time with family and friends. The weather just starting to cool down for us Californias and the crispness in the air. I just love fall. Working on little projects indoors. I just love it.

What I am looking forward to about fall is:

Sitting out on my back porch in the evenings with the fire pit burning and the tiki torches lit.....
my dog by my side on his outdoor dog bed and relaxing in the cool evening breeze. Ahhh - life is good!

What are you looking forward to?

I am not a fan of "hot". I like fall because it comes with a cooler, drier and crisp air. I love different colors of the leaves too.

Love the earrings, Laurie!

I love fall because the air is cool and crisp and it's great for snuggling with my family. Whether we're wrapped up in blankets together watching a movie or watching our soccer or football teams, it's good snuggle weather. It's a great time for nesting!

Have a great trip!

I love baking things with pumpkin. Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin roll, pumpkin pie....anything pumpkin -- and then going for a walk in the crisp air after eating them ;)

Missy said...

I love the changing of the leaves. I like the cool weather - not COLD - but cool! I like to be able to light a fire in the fireplace and smell the wood burning.

Cheryl said...

I love the changing leaves and all the beautiful colors; the cool night air which makes great sleeping weather. I also love when it gets dark early and you can get into your pajamas, snuggle up under a throw, drink a cup of hot chocolate and watch a good movie. It is also the perfect time for soups, stews, chili and for having breakfast at dinner.

Hope you and your family have a fabulous and safe trip!
