GIVEAWAY!!!



Dixie from DixieDIY makes candles with yummy scents in cool, colorful, vintage glass containers. Each candle is one of a kind and uses clean burning soy wax with a lead-free hemp wick. These candles will compliment your other vintage decor and make any room smell great!

All you have to do to win your choice of one of her fabulous handmade candles is leave a comment in this post about your favorite Fall tradition OR guilty pleasure treat. Unfortunately, she can only ship to the US and Canada. The candles don't do well on long trips overseas where heat and humidity can mess with the wax. The winner will be chosen on Friday and notified so be sure to leave your e-mail or link to your blog so we can get in touch.



My favorite Fall tradition is decorating the porch with pretty flowers, pumpkins, or an occasional hay bale. I also can't resist a handful of candy corn whenever it's available or a caramel apple as long as it's Granny Smith. I plan on both happening this month. Pumpkin Spice lattes are right up there with the candy corn. Oh, and something about Fall makes Carrot Cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting seem necessary. Can you tell I've got a sweet tooth?

What's yours?

xoxo,
Rachel

ooooh lovely candles! :]

My favorite Fall tradition is making hot cocoa or apple cider with my little sister and watching It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! We do it ever year, tons of fun!
xo.

I saw in a blog about a year ago where someone built a city out of newspaper on the walls to one room. My dream city is Seattle, so last winter I built one on my wall. I'm really excited to make really pretty autumn construction paper leaves to put around my city. I think it will make my place more cozy, because sometimes seasonal depression likes to interfere with life.

Cryssi said...

My favourite fall tradition is definitely Halloween! My friends and I dress up and have a party filled with treats, scary music and apple bobbing!

I must confess that when this fall weather hits I definitely can't resist a Tim Hortons French Vanilla or a Starbucks Vanilla Latte.

I also can't resist wearing all my favourite fall clothing :-)

mrs boo radley said...

Going to the pumpkin patch with husband...make real pumpkin pie out of real pumpkins, lighting candles and leaving lights off...I could go on!
Thank you for the giveaway.

danilouwho said...

I hear you on the sweet tooth - mine is something terrible right now. And I can pretty much avoid sweets any other season!

My guilty pleasure right this very minute is cinnamon caramel apples - I'm serious, the addition of cinnamon in the caramel makes these to die for. So yummy.

rose said...

rachel: this is off topic, but trader joes makes the best carrot cake muffins with cream cheese frosting! yum!

my favorite fall foods are maple cookies -- the ones shaped like little maple leaves with frosting in the center. mmmm. also, pumpkin gelato, which i discovered when i ordered pizza one night (i love that my pizza place delivers gelato!)
my favorite fall thing to do is to walk on the trail underneath the colorful autumn trees, with a coffee in hand. apple cider also works. the leaves are just starting to turn here in seattle, and this is on my list of things to do tomorrow! even if it rains :)

Allison said...

Oh I loooove fall because I get to drink tons of Pumpkin Spice Lattes! I've been getting them with soy this year and they seem much creamier. Love them!

RachelDenbow said...

Rose! I'm jealous. No Trader Joe's here in Springfield, and no pumpkin gelato for 100 miles.

Enjoy my favorite season in my husband's favorite city!

Maggie said...

My fave fall tradition is Mexican hot chocolate and cozy scarves. The hot chocolate is a little spicy and oh so creamy! I would definitely recommend it!

Suzanne said...

pretty pretty!

my favourite fall tradition is going to the farmers market and picking out cute little mini-pumpkins and squash for decoration on my dining table (i try to get all white, light green, grey). and of course my guilty pleasure treat(s) would be pumpking spice lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin seeds...

melissa kaye said...

Beautiful candles! ;-)

I have a few favorite fall traditions.. 1) eating pumpkin pie and having more than one slice..2) drinking grande pumpkin lattes from Starbucks (I get so excited when they come out)..3) watching "Hocus Pocus" (loooove this movie)!

Apple Scrapper said...

I love anything and everything Halloween!!!

Chelseabird said...

Those candles are so, so lovely!

My favorite fall tradition is picking out pumpkins at a local pumpkin patch! Carving pumpkins has always been something special to me so I love wandering around a pumpkin patch, squishing my feet in the fallen leaves, and finding that perfect pumpkin that isn't quite round, but rather oval shaped so I have more room to carve on!

I'm always a huge fan of pumpkin spice lattes, and Brach's autumn mix of candy corn and mini pumpkins!

Chels xoxo

mandiegirl said...

Um, I can't even remember how many pumpkin spice lattes I've had in the last few weeks....so, I guess that reveals my fave tradition. :)

margot said...

pretty pretty!! every sept 1 i make a big event of getting the pumpkin spice latte at sbucks...that's my fav tradition! along with costume planning with my 3 besties!

Erin said...

Caramel apple cider, pumpkin cheesecake and the colors of fall. Most of all I look forward to fall clothes...why is everything so much better in fall?

Bria said...

Red velvet cheesecake and vanilla berry truffle tea.

Oh man. So good.

gerdecat said...

THE CIDER MILL.. is definitely a favorite tradition of mine that i have carried out since childhood.. i love being outside at a farm-like cider mill where there's plenty of trees with falling leaves. Then there is the real deal cider and donuts. I especially like finding a cider mill that has the plain donuts that taste just as good as the sugar ones. :)

gerdecat said...

ps my email is cadege5@yahoo.com :)

Judith Cebreros said...

Those candles are lovely! I usually don't have a fall tradition but baking goodies like zucchini bread will be my tradition from now on. I make a pretty mean zucchini bread. :)

Broken Bones Matilda said...

My favorite things about fall are tights, hot coffee, knitting scarfs, gloves, hats. I also love getting ready for halloween, and decorating the front yard and looking for costumes and getting the candy bags ready for the cute little trick or treaters.

Olivia said...

My favorite fall tradition is making loaves of my grandmother's recipe for pumpkin-chocolate-chip bread! The first weekend that really feels "autumnal", I spend a day in the kitchen making loaves for all my friends! I wrap them up and deliver them by hand. My friends have come to expect these loaves each year. It's my way of celebrating friendship -- and a yummy treat! (And of couse, my favorite season: fall!)

anchorsgodown said...

My mom has a recipe for the best chili and homemade corn bread. We make it in the morning, put it in the crock-pot all day long, and when we get home, we have a wonderful meal. Eating this and watching Edward Scissorhands and Sleepy Hollow.

Also, homemade apple butter, carving pumpkins, scarves and sweaters, s'mores, and pumpkin frozen yogurt. I love autumn! I cannot wait to put that extra quilt on my bed to keep me warm!

Tracie said...

My favorite fall tradition is having homemade chili with my family. I also LOVE driving to and from school in Logan, Utah and being able to go through the gorgous canyon with all of the trees!

Ashleigh said...

Oh my gosh, what a great idea for candles!! Thanks for the chance to win one, Rachel :)

I would have to say my favorite fall tradition is going apple picking and burning pumpkin smelling candles or candles with names like "fall harvest".

My favorite fall indulgence would have to be Pumkin Spice Lattes from Sbucks and pumpkin pie! And stuffing and mashed potatoes :)

Jenna said...

cuuute candles!!
ooooh, carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting? that sounds sooo yummy!
my favorite fall tradition is hands down pumpkin spice lattes, harvest candles from pier 1, and glittered pumpkins to decorate my home. and of course candy corn!!!

6p01156fecd7c1970c said...

Oh Fall! Around here, Fall means trips to the Pumpkin patch (grey pumpkins!!), viewings of my "fall only" movies (Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown, It's a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and Practical Magic), fall colored m&ms, multiple trips to Michaels and hot tea everyday!

In addition, I plan to make:
Pumpkin Curry (Thai style!) out a a REAL pumkin, have a Halloween party on halloween (it's on a Saturday!), make Dustin (Hub) wear a real costume and blog about it all. :D

Yeeep! I love this time of year. <3

xo,
Violet

Victoria said...

Ah, yes. Fall! It's a great time of year, especially here in Texas. The weather is still warm, but with a nice breeze. Since my friends and I are all still in college/grad school, it's also a busy time for us, but the first month of November is when our October, November, and December birthdays all get celebrated. Our group picks a major city and spends a weekend there, shopping, seeing the sights, and the nightlife. Besides this tradition, homemade pumpkin pie and cranberry relish show up at the family get-togethers. Can't beat family and good food!

Anna said...

My family owns a pumpkin farm so although fall is one of the busiest times of the year it is also my favorite. I love spending all that quality family time picking & cleaning pumpkins & gourds.
Awesome candles!
Anna

anne esquibel said...

I love to make Apple Pie Cider in the fall(alcohol free) nom nom nom!

kellymiller said...

Beautiful candles! I love the soy - I'm burning one right now and it is so lovely.

My favorite fall tradition is leaf peeping with a pumpkin spice latte in hand. In Colorado you see a lot of the bright yellow aspens but not the full range of reds, oranges, purples, etc that you get back east where my family lives. I really miss the crisp fall air, the beautiful leaves, and going to a football game......

Alicia said...

mmmm, definitely the candy corn!! And lots of it!
Alicia

sara said...

super super cute! would look great in my apartment :)

i love wearing cardigans, flats, boots, scarves, and all things cute for fall :)

Tricia Orchard said...

My favourite fall tradition is baking pumpkin loaf and gingerbread cookies (you can find the recipes on my blog).

My new favourite drink is also pumpkin spice lattes.

My girls and I also like going for walks to collect leaves.

Thanks for the giveaway.

Enjoy,
Tricia

Allison Drew said...

My favorite fall tradition is going for an evening walk and coming home to hot apple cider. Wonderful.

Laurie Anne said...

Since autumn is my favourite time of year we have so many traditions...We go for a fall drive out to Mennonite country to see the change of leaves, we pick pumpkins and apples and then come home and make fresh pumpkin pies and muffins to freeze. We make apple pies and eat more than just the "apple a day" for a l-o-n-g time :) We make wine with my parents that is always something we look forward to and has been a tradition since I was a young child. Roasting chestnuts on sunday afternoons...
I LOVE Fall...
Have a great day! xx

ashleyrwatts said...

Hmm...my favorite fall tradition is going hiking every year with the boy at a local state park. It has a lookout and it's all so gorgeous (and not to mention and extra great workout! haha)

Caitlin said...

My sister and I seem to have started a tradition 2 years ago of picking apples together and taking goofy pictures while doing it. :)

melisa said...

i love pumpkin-flavored anything! drinking hot cider, wearing layers, the way the leaves smell. in summer, i'm jumping to get out of the house but in fall, i love staying in with a warm cup of something.

Katie @ makingthishome.com said...

I love how these candles look - especially with the soy wax. Thanks for a shot at them. My favorite is the smells - cider, leaves, applesauce.
Katie

nicole said...

my favorite fall tradition is taking family pictures at a local park. The best part about it was that this year, the kids ASKED to do it. The thing I used to have to coerce them into doing, has now become a tradition they appreciate. Warms my heart.

S. Wright Creative said...

Fall is my favorite and my birthday is in october, usually celebrated with pumpkin cookies. We are moving into a house this weekend and I cannot wait to decorate for fall!

Jacky said...

I loove candles! Especially if they're spice scented...=)

I live in Florida, so my "fall" is different. It doesn't really get cool until later, like October. So my FAVORITE thing to do is when I can FINALLY break out my hoodies, sweaters, and socks and bundle up! I love it. =)

Miranda said...

How fun is this giveaway!
My favorite fall traditions are drinking coffee, going camping, wearing warm clothes and making pumpkin bread!

Occasional Threads said...

My favorite fall tradition is still carving pumpkins and making spiced apple cider. And this year my boyfriend and I are adding apple picking to our traditions!

Ragazzarte said...

My guilty fall pleasure is Pumpkin Spice muffins with creamcheese topping and candied pepitas on top.
Mmmmm.... the breakfast of champions! =P
Favorite fall tradition is when the entire family roadtrips to Bala, Ontario for the annual cranberry festival (http://www.balacranberryfestival.on.ca/)

Sara said...

Love those candles! :)

My favorite fall tradition is getting together with the women in my family to make tamales. We spend the whole day cooking, laughing, listening to music, and of course, eating. The tamales are our standard Christmas Eve dinner, but we have to test a few before we freeze the rest until December 24! It's a tradition that has happened in our family (and many other Mexican families) for geneations, and I hope to help carry it on for many more years to come.

Elle Jay said...

I absolutely LOVE those candles!

My favorite fall tradition would have to be going to pick out pumpkins! I love fall colors, especially orange, and enjoy anything having to do with pumpkins either to decorate with or eat! I think I'll start a new tradition this year by going to get a Pumpkin Pie Concrete at Andy's as I read they put a whole piece of pie in the custard. Oh my! :)

Jackie said...

My favorite fall tradition is the day after Thanksgiving. My mother's side of the family (aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents) all get together to make hard tack candy. We spend the entire day working and then give it out for the Holidays.

My fall craving is definitely lattes. Pumpkin spice, toffee nut, hazelnut, even tea lattes.

Mary Ann said...

My fall guilty pleasure is eating caramel apple suckers. If you have never had them, definitely try them. They are magic!

TaMs* said...

pick me!
My fav is cutting the dry corn stalks down from the garden, tying them together and placing them with pumpkins on the front porch.

Carol Anne said...

Ooh so many fall traditions! I love getting out my hot chocolate maker, carving pumpkins & candy corn of course!

RachelDenbow said...

anne esquibel,
I have a funny story about cider in ENgland. I was living with a host family for a year right out of high school and saw their 1 Liter bottle of cider on the counter with a woodpecker on it and decided I'd like some. I poured myself a good sized glass before smelling it and only realized it was alcoholic after I'd had a large drink!

Betsey Booms said...

My fall traditions are always putting new leave swags on my front porch swing, redecorating my living room (doing it this Friday!), making pumpkin anything and right now I'm chugging a delicious pumpkin spice cappuccino because it's a crisp fresh Fall day in KC today.

Molly Swanson said...

LOVE that adorable candle! what a cool give away!
My favorite fall treat is a pumpkin spice latte! I also can't wait to pick out a pumpkin :)

Casey said...

Sweaters and hot apple cider! Fall for me equals pumpkin overload. I am especially fond of pumpkin cheesecake. Yummers.

Emily said...

So many Fall things I love- but a few of the top are going to the apple orchard, burning 'yummy' candles so the house is cozy, decorating with leaves and pumpkins, and making all those cool-weather comfort foods that we save for this time of year.

Tracy 1117 said...

My favorite Fall tradition is carving pumpkins with my nephews. They each get their own pumpkin and we have so much fun cleaning out the "guts" and carving the pumpkin. We even roast the seeds and have a yummy snack!

;)

Sincerely, L. said...

Well, this is the second fall I'm spending with a family of my own so not many traditions are yet in place, but we love going to harvest festivals and pumpkin patches. This year, a tradition I hope my son will grow to love and continue, we are having a harvest festival 1st birthday party, complete with pumpkin patch at a park. :) I am so excited to put into play all the plans I have! Autumn yummies, Halloween games, and even one of those snazzy photo boards with the faces cut out, in the characters of Jack & Sally. (His favorite movie. He's such a pumpkin baby!)

Bridget said...

My favorite tradition is to put out a pumkin display on my front porch and then peek out the window and watch the squirrels eat the pumpkins! Last year, they ate the pumpkins literally down to the stalk (which fell into my flower bed) and the very bottom (which was like an orange disk on my porch). At first I was mad, but then I decided it was more entertaining to watch their antics and live and let live.

emma said...

I think that my favorite fall traditions would include, gold and fuscia scarves, freshly baked dense pumpkin loaf and a hot chai latte, outside, nestled next to my love. And I too enjoy a good caramel apple, preferably with my little sister.

emma_marks@yahoo.com

Mandy said...

Oh what cute candles! I could snatch up each and every one of them. :)

Fall is my absolute most favorite time of the year. I love decorating the house with pumpkins and acorns and I love indulging in candy corn mixed with peanuts. Yum!

Sherry said...

Those candles are amazing!

My favorite fall tradition would be getting a hot caramel apple cider from starbucks and going down the street to the park with my hub. We usually walk around and then of course, play in the leaves. I am planning on doing a fall family photoshoot too!

keely steger said...

Fave things about fall- College football Saturdays with my husband which provide the perfect setting to (keep attempting) to perfect my chili recipe.

corinne said...

i have two favs:
-going to Pier 1 every fall and stocking up on fall scented candles (apple pie, harvest spice YUM)
-planning a harvest hoedown for our church & community, complete with square dancing, pie eating contest, jam judging with blue ribbons for the winners...yay!

BeautifulBridget.com said...

Hi Rachel! I hope you are doing well :]

My favorite tradition is taking the family and heading to Silver Dollar City to spend a day shopping around all of the crafty shops because Fall means its the crafts festival! Love love LOVE it!! Chilly weather, bundled up in a thick scarf and drinking hot coffee or cider while shopping and enjoying the day with the fam...what could be better?

Have a great day my friend!
Kim

carly. said...

oh how cute!! i love those.

my favourite fall tradition...well, it's not really a tradition but i really just love fall clothes. layering, scarves, the whole shi-bang! i love being cold.

tessaboo said...

My favorite fall tradition is arranging fall flowers on the dining room table, putting up pumpkin garland on the pillars in our living room, and then tireless rearranging both of these things after the cats have knocked them down daily! oh and pumpkin carving with the bf! i carve a pumpkin to look like him and vice versa. And pumpkin chais from Starb!

Josh said...

My fave fall tradition is something called: pumpkin roll....my sisters make it...all I know it's pumpkin something with cream cheese rolled in it and it is delectable and of course pumpkin pie...I can't help myself when either of these are around!

Lehua said...

oh man..my favorite guilty pleasure is pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice, and of course, hot apple cider. mmmmm...

angiemcgovern said...

My favorite Fall traditions are buying a huge pumpkin for the front porch and pulling all of my fall and winter clothes out of storage. It's like shopping without the spending.

Oh, and my guilty pleasure is Brach's Autumn Mix. I think I have already devoured two bags! eep...

hannah b. said...

Caramel Apple Spice from Starbucks and a walk in the park with Husband and Dexter (our dog)... by far my fave! Oh, and cute candles! Such a great idea :)

Dixie said...

My favorite Fall tradition is drinking hot chocolate to warm up. Taking pictures in the leaves. This year we actually get to go to a Halloween party. Its been a while. At age 12 my son thinks he's too old for Halloween but a party is different. He is going with his whole baseball team and actually going trick or treating. It will be fun for the whole family.

Courtney said...

I have read your blog for quite some time but have never commented.

My favorite fall traditions are to make new scarves, curl on on the couch with lit candles, visit our local pumpkin patch, and make a pumpkin snow man with white pumpkins. I love fall!

courtneykimsey@gmail.com

Angelyn said...

My favorite (grownup) fall tradition is spiced wine simmering on the stove!

xobellaaimox said...

Niki said...

These candles are too cute. I love the idea. My favorite autumn tradition is going for drives in the country and watching all the leaves turned pretty colours. Also stopping along a few farm markets and picking up some home baked pie...mmm...

slmpetersen said...

My favorite fall tradition is baking. I love to bake when the weather gets cool and the leaves begin to change colors....that is also my guilty pleasure...As I love eating what I bake.

Leslie said...

There is a local candy store in Memphis, Dinstuhls, that makes delicious apples dipped in caramel, chocolate, and then swirled in nuts. They are out of this world. And now I think I'll go get one on my lunch break :) lesliepoe.blogspot.com

Meagan said...

My favourite tradition is having the entire family over for thanksgiving, with tons of turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie! MMMM. It's the reason that fall is my favourite season!!

Jodie B-C said...

We started a new tradition this year..now that we finally have a fireplace. I put large autumn-scented candles in the fireplace...love the warm glow as well as the smells of cinnamon, pumpkin pie, etc!

Kaleigh said...

I am a totally coffee addict so one of the things I look forward to the most in Fall is soy gingerbread and pumpkin lattes. I also start my quest for the perfect pair of winter boots... This has been a personal tradition of mine for over 5 years and I have YET to find the perfect pair!

Jessica Fulkerson O'Brien said...

Nothing guilty about it, but my two fall favorite indulgences are new boots (lately, flat, riding-style boots) and caramel apple cider - the only "frou frou" drink I ever order at starbucks ;)

Kaytee said...

Beautiful candles! My favorite fall traditions are trips to the pumpkin patch, pumpkin spice lattes, hot apple cider (with rum when appropriate), and halloween! Happy Fall!

Liz said...

Making Pumpkin Spice Lattes a part of my daily diet.:)

Oh yeah, and Halloween makes me LOVE fall!

Amber said...

Those candles are amazing!

My favorite fall tradition is making a soup. This to me signals that is truely is fall. My favorites are creamy potato soup and chilli! I also love hitting the pumpkin patch and finding that perfect pumpkin to carve!

Erin Donohue said...

I lovelove going to the pumpkin patch and picking out the perfect one. Thanks:)

"Divine" Hand said...

I would definitely have to say that my fave thing to do every fall is go around to various stores just to experience the many wonderful scents that fall brings. There is no other season like it. We usually get those scented pine cones that tend to pop up everywhere. YUM!!!

Thanks!!!

Jordan said...

my absolute favorite fall tradition is haunted house... even though i'm always the one getting everyone together for it and i always chicken out! haha, i'm a big baby, maybe this year i'll not be such a chicken! my other fall favorites are finding the biggest, brightest leaves, and definitely lots of hot apple cider on the porch and pumpkin picking :o)

Lovely Kasey said...

layiing in bed and eatings tons and tons of candy corn and listening to explosions in the sky :)

julie.schellin said...

going to a nearby apple orchard/petting farm/pumpkin patch/playground with my kids...we've done it every year now for at least 7 years. It's a great fall family tradition.

hollie said...

Fall is my all time favorite season so it is hard to pick one favorite thing... but if I must I would say that it is going to this great local farm to pick pumpkins each year. They have a great little farmers market and lots of other attractions that make for a great fall afternoon.
I am not a big fan of pumpkin pie but I do love a good pumpkin spice cake or roll and OF COURSE love the pumpkin spice latte :)

Tara said...

We have an Octoberfest at our house every year. With brats, pretzels, sauerkruat, apple cider, german beer, etc. We also bowl with pumpkins. This year I plan to have it all outside since our backyard is finished. So I will get some hay bales for every one to sit on and decorate with some fall leaves and pumpkins from the garden.

Vanessa said...

Fall is my favorite! My birthday is in October and my mom always makes me 2 pumpkin pies. I eat about half while I'm at her house and then I take one home. I snag a whipped cream can (the really good for you homemade kind) from my cafe and I eat the pie topped with whipped cream all week for dinner. sometimes I share... YUM!

Amanda said...

those candles are soooooo pretty! I hope I win. Anywho, my favorite fall tradition for this time of year is making homemade vanilla chai tea lattes. And getting a pretty pumpkin spice or baked apple candle and burning it until there isn't anymore to burn. I also love this time of year because it's scarf season. my grandma sends me knitted scarves every other year! Oh, and when the leaves change color and fall to the grass. I love the contrast of the red, orange and yellow leaves against the green grass.

My absolute favorite is making homemade Halloween costumes for my four little ones, then parading them around town!

Dee Dee said...

My favorite Autumn tradition is going to the pumpkin patch for pictures, and drinking hot cocoa. :)

Naomi said...

Every week before Halloween, my mom's boyfriend buys 10 to 15 pumpkins & asks me to carve them all. It's exhausting but I love it.

Kristy said...

Going apple picking, drinking cider, carving pumpkins & roasting the seeds, and having game nights with a fire in the fireplace!

lisrobson said...

i love going outside for picnics. I live in florida so fall is a great change around here. Not so hot and humid. We spend so much time outside in the fall. We always go pick our pumpkins at our pumpkin patch. SO much fun.

comeupforair said...

My favorite fall memory is playing in the leaves with my brother, sister and dog growing up and being able to bike through state parks during peak color time. Now that I live in Florida I especially miss it!

Mary said...

Yes yes yes yes! Candy Corn!!!!!

Dawn said...

Well, I am on a diet so i will just say those reeseeee pumpkins are da yummy!

One thing I love about fall is getting out the decor with my boys and letting them put them all up, they seem to love it and I hope they remember these times years from now when they have children...Sigh...!

Elaine VanDRiver said...

I love to leave the windows open at night. The cool air in the morning is lovely...but I mainly like it because I can hear the roosters rooting and the horses naying in the distance. Fall in Walla Walla is the best!

Mim Smith Faro said...

My favorite thing is the trip to the apple orchard where we take a hayride out to the pumpkin patch to find our very own pumpkins.

My favorite fall tradition is decorating. Also to be able to open the windows after a sweltering summer (we don't have a "real winter" here so I look forward to opening the windows. Also all the cinnamon and apple and pumpkin spice smells. I am so looking forward to getting my pumpkin spice smelling candles. My favorite treats would have to also be carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Also a hearty stew or soup. Or curled up under one of my mom's amazing crocheted blankets. So excited about this season.

my FAVORITE Fall tradition is going apple picking with my boyfriend. We lay down in the orchard and just soak in the amazing-ness of fall! We always buy a pumpkin too! And we go home, make apple crisp, and cook the pumpkin seeds! :)

I love making clove encrusted oranges. Sounds odd huh? I first made them in Girl Scouts eons ago, have loved the scent ever since. You basically take an order and toe a thin ribbon or string around it and push in whole cloves. Then hang them where ever you want that fantastic smell. :-)

LOVE these candles!

My favorite fall tradition is carvin pumpkins with my little cousin. He's getting older now and I will certainly miss it when he is no longer interested :(
The pumpkin spice lattes just make the whole thing better :)

My favorite tradition is "family" Thanksgiving. It started my freshman year of college when a few of us had to travel too far to go home so we stayed and made Thanksgiving dinner in the dorm. Over the last three years it's grown to be a really big deal. This last year we had five different ovens going over a 12 hour period in preparation! We all make a recipe passed down by our grandmothers. We all gather around a table (which our freshman year was a ping pong table in the basement) and put pumpkins in the middle of the table for decoration.

Jill said...

My favorite fall tradition is the trip to the Pumpkin Patch. I love snapping pics of my little one with the pumpkins and comparing them to the previous years.

Ali said...

I have been hoarding soup recipes lately. Would you be interested in sharing yours? One of my favorite things to do is take a blanket out on the back deck and sit in the late evening and just relax. I also love hot cocoa!

malori said...

Pumpkin spice lattes and knitting. That's all I want to do during autumn. Knit and drink my delicious pumpkin drink :)

Emilie Lynne said...

Oooh, those candles look so pretty!

My favorite autumn tradition is going to Linvilla Orchards, which is a place near my house that has a pumpkin patch in October. You can pick your own pumpkins, drink hot apple cider and jump in the hay :)

My favorite fall tradition is raking the leaves with my sister...it sounds like a chore but we always keep it from being a bore. =D

Andrea said...

I love mixing peanuts and candy corn and picking out the perfect pumpkin for the front porch!

sunny_29 said...

I love fall. I love getting ready for halloween, to get dressed up and be silly with my children. I also love to sneak some of their candy. They do not need all of it, so I really am doing them a service. :)

Rebekah said...

favorite fall tradition would have to be pumpkin bread, hot cider and scarves on a chilly morning! lovely candles, such a cute idea!

Miss Wanderlust said...

beautiful candles!
My favorite fall guilty pleasures are candy corn, peanut butter kisses, and two-bite pumpkin pies <3 yummy!

*~*Amber*~* said...

Love those candles!
Candles are a BIG part of our holiday tradition.... currently we have pumpkin aroma filling the house along w/the windows open and a fresh cool breeze filling the house too!
Pumpkin pie that is made w/creamchesse is my favorite holiday tradtion as well as a yummy sweet potatoe casserole that we make that has walnuts, brown sugar and is topped w/powdered sugar. It's more like a dessert than side dish but it's my favorite!!! xo

Mrs. C said...

Fall is my favorite season of all. I wish I could live in a land of fall! My favorite tradition is fall decorating, making pumpkin bread and pumpkin butter (anything pumpkin flavored really). Also, every fall, I get a "happy" sweater to kick off the season just right!

Hope your last month of pregnancy goes smoothly! Thanks for the giveaway!

Angela said...

Fall is my favorite season. I love all things pumpkin and cinnamon. The smells, tates and sights! I love the halloween cartoons and especially pumpkin pie!

Kassi said...

Every year our little family of five piles in the car and heads to the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins and have photo ops. We try to do this with my Dad every year - the kids LOVE their grandpa! I also love making homemade chili and cornbread on a cool evening, decorating my house for fall, lighting yummy smelling candles and putting the kids to bed as soon as it gets dark so the hus and I can cuddle up and watch a movie. Oh, and of course I LOVE dressing for fall with scarves, sweaters from Anthropologie and cute boots. I just wish I lived in a place where it would get colder!
Thanks for the giveaway!!

Lacey Bean said...

My favorite fall tradition is decorating for Halloween! My parents started seriously decorating my house for Halloween when I was in junior high school, and I only really appreciated how awesome it is when I was away for school. We are now THAT house on the block that all the kids come to for Trick-or-Treating. :)

Tina Amato said...

My favorite fall tradition when I was a kid was helping my parents rake leaves (a chore I never whined about doing) into a huge pile, then jumping belly-flop style into them over and over again. The warm colors, the textural cruuunch of the leaves, and, oh, the smell...
Now, it's my favorite fall tradition to watch as my little cousins perform the same time-honored ritual.

Ashleigh said...

My favorite thing about fall is defiantly the color palette that comes with it. I love the chilly frosty morning accompanied by a hot cut of hot tea. I love cuddling my dog while reading a book guilt free cause the weather is so bad. I love watching the snow get lower and lower on the mountains. Oh yeah and the apple pie, I love apple pie.

Wow-cool giveaway!

nancy said...

LOVE the candles!

My favorite fall tradition is driving up into the mountains to see the aspens turn. They're gorgeous!

sohpiasmom said...

Definitely making spiced apple cider (with Mulling Spices) and sipping it while I read (and it's chilly outside)!

Cate said...

My favourite fall tradition is making a hot drink and listening to the rain and making candy apples and eating them. And making Halloween treats for my kiddo. :)

windy said...

i love to take my son to star bucks where we share an apple fritter and drink a signature hot chocolate. then we come home and build a fire in our outdoor fireplace and roast marshmallows for s'mores... yum!!!

Attending the Columbus Day fair!

A small town in Massachusetts nestled between "the five colleges" turns Columbus Day weekend into a three-day-long weekend of tag sales and a craft fair. The craft fair is set up on the village common and the shops surrounding it open their doors to everyone to step in when the crisp air gets to be too much. I'm looking forward to carry around a chai latte with me while I browse with friends all of the crafts and meander down College Street stopping in every driveway to browse the tag sale goods.

Kara "Sky" McGinty said...

Oh my, favorite Fall tradition....
Enjoying the beautiful trees and drinking at least one cup of mind-blowingly amazing apple cider! :-) Ah, but I adore everything else about Fall as well! Like there are certain movies that are best watched during the Fall, like You've Got Mail. Always have to make sure to go down the Fall movie list!

The candles are so unique! Count me in! www.eandkmcg.wordpress.com

Whitney said...

Those are beyond gorgeous!
I meant to enter earlier...hope I'm not too late!
I am completely in love with fall. But one of my favorite fall traditions...
Has to be just the colors that you start to see everywhere. Such rich, luxurious colors! And the combination of color you start to see in your own backyard. Our backyard ends up looking like a painting, it's beautiful.
Oh. And picking golden rod and putting them in mason jars.

Patty said...

My favorite fall tradition is Fort Verde days. We get up early and either get ready to be in the parade or just go to watch it. For as long as i can remember we have went to Fort Verde days. My grandma used to ride her horse in the parade and I would ride on the pooper scooper 4 wheeler and throw candy and we always got to dress up as something fun. After the parade is over we go to the carnival and ride the rides and eat all the fun food from homemade fry bread to homemade ice cream. There is a bull ride and dance in the evening and the kids get to ride sheep during the day. My cousin even makes it a holiday that her and her ex have to split the custody of their son over.I just cant imagine my fall without it.

Salted Caramel hot chocolate from Starbucks...mmm!

closemyeyesx said...

My favorite thing about fall is pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, and the smell of the air and the leaves in the evening.

Kitty Vicious said...

My favorite fall tradition is a fairly new one - but delicious! This is the time of year where every coffee shop has a pumpkin flavored drink or treat, and pumpkin flavored creamer is available in the stores. There is little better than a crisp morning spent with a book and pumpkin coffee.

LucyLuxx said...

My dad used to take my sister and I "conkering" in the fall. Conkers are the Brit word for chestnuts. He had an old army bag and we would go to the part of town that had the most chestnut trees and fill up the sack. We did the same with acorns.
I do this with my daughter now......the little acorn caps make sweet doll or fairy bowls.

Kayla Grace said...

mmm. pumpkin spice lattes, carmel apple cider, naps on quilts in the park, knitting, long walks in the crisp air...i want fall to hit california! please, mister weather man...
