    Robert~Halloween Fanatic

    Jennie Hepler

  7. I love the colors of fall, the bounty of the fall harvest, and perhaps a chance to wear a cozy sweater on a cool evening walk. Then there are the fat happy pumpkins and best of all, the little trick-or-treaters. And best of all is the PFATT artist giveaway!

  8. My favorite parts of Fall are:
    1. Halloween
    2. Hunting for the PERFECT pumpkin
    3. The smell of falling leaves, burning wood and dropping temperatures.

  9. Hello, Oh, I think fall is my favorite season, I love the cool air, the beautiful colors of the trees and who does not love pumpkins and apples. What a wonderful giveaway, thank you so much for the opportunity to win. What wonderful artists. Have a wonderful day. Terri

  10. Wicked goodies form amazing artists! Wow! My favorite part of fall is when the woods surrounding our home become ablaze with Autumnal color. It looks like someone clicked the light on in the woods. Oh and Halloween of course. Please throw my name in the magic hat! :) Becca

  11. I can't list just one! I LOVE that cool, crisp air, the smell of all the fireplaces burning, the beautiful colors of the changing leaves, baking pies, big pots of stew and chili, decorating for Halloween and most of all trick or treating with my boys...I know pretty soon they'll be too big for it and my trick or treating days will be over :o(

  12. Me again...I just posted the banner and link to my blog!
    My email addy is
    I would LOVE to win this awesome giveaway...thanks for the chance!

  13. Halloween of course. There has always been something about going out at night with everyone dressed and running the neighborhood collecting candy. Oh the good ole days.

  14. I love to hear the leaves rustling and the smell of them in the cool crisp air as I am on my way to a football game.

  15. "Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all."
    I love everything about Fall! The best thing, though, is that Summer is over. When you live in Vegas, that's a big deal. hee hee!!

  16. What an incredibly, awesome array of prizes being donated for this most generous Giveaway! To ALL the PFATT artists, your talents and kindness continue to overwhelm!
    My favorite part of Fall is the turning of the vast coloring of the leaves .....

    October gave a party;
    The leaves by hundreds came -
    The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
    And leaves of every name.
    The Sunshine spread a carpet,
    And everything was grand,
    Miss Weather led the dancing,
    Professor Wind the band.
    ~George Cooper, "October's Party"

  17. These items are wickedly delightful. My favorite part of Autumn, besides Halloween of course, is the lack of humidity and scorching sun. My entire house is done in Fall colors, so it waits eagerly every year to fit in with the season.

    I am posting this link on my Facebook page as well.

    Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  23. It would be hard to pick one favorite thing about fall. I live in Michigan so the fall colors are wonderful. I love the smell in the air, everything we cook with apples during this season, and I've always loved Halloween. Looking at the prim artist's creations is really getting me in the mood for Halloween already!

  24. Just added your link to my FB page~

  25. walking thru the woods,
    kicking up the orange,red and yellow leaves,
    cool crisp breezes,
    apples and pumpkins at the farm,
    making homemade apple sauce....

    that's what comes to mind when I think of Fall

  26. Oh I love Pfatt Blog Fall GiveAway....
    Yippee Skippeee. I love the crisp air of Fall. The cool breeze on your face and just knowing that everything has served its' purpose for another year, and it is time to go to sleep and rest for the new year to come. (Living in Phoenix, we have to drive up North to experience that, we don't really have cool seasons here in the valley.)

    I so love your giveaway and your artists are so phenomenal. I love it. Please enter me into the giveaway.

    I have also already posted your button on my scrollbar, proudly for all the artists involved.

    Here is my email:

    Again thanks to all of you for the wonderful share. Beautiful giveaways each and every one.

    Country hugs...Sherry

  27. I love the beautiful colors and smells of fall. The windows open and invite fresh spicy air in.

  28. I love the crunch of leaves, the smell of cider, sweatshirts, football games, purple, orange and black lights, children dressed like goblins, candy apples, treats, full moons and sitting by a fire, but my favorite thing about fall is creating and imagining new fall creations and then browsing fellow artist and seeing their enthusiasm and interpretation of fall right here on PFATT!

  29. Wonderfully created pieces, all! A walk on a cool Autumn evening, piling up leaves to jump in, donuts and hot apple cider, the trees ablaze with color, the smell of ripened apples on the trees, snuggling into a big sweater, thick stew with dumplings, I could go on and favorite time of year.

  30. P.S. I posted the banner to my FB page! Hope you all have a successful and bountiful harvest this full!

  31. Well- there isnt much of a fall where I live. LOL I LOVE halloween, all the fun that goes along with it. I don't like Thanksgiving for the most part.
    This is an awesome site! Thanks

  32. That is tough, I love the colors, the smell, the feel of fall, while I miss my hummingbirds while sitting in my gazebo drinking my morning coffee in the fall, I still have the clean, earthy smells, birds, the corn fields.
    Thanks for all the beautiful prizes, so many talented folks!
    Am posting to my facebook page and blog also!
    thanks again

  33. Also, my email address is (I really did this piece-meal!)

  35. There are SOOOOOOOOO Many wonderful things about Fall! MY FAVORITE of all seasons.....
    *the change of colors
    *cooler temperatures
    *hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick
    *pumpkins and gourds
    *candy corn and Halloween Trick or Treat
    *Fall=Family and Friends
    Thanks for the giveaway, the pieces are all wonderful, and I would treasure any one!

  36. Fall is my favorite time of the year, the weather is cool and the hauntings begin! I think trick or treating is my favorite!!! My twins are 10 now so I am sure my trick or treating adventures are numbered. I will always treasure my own trick or treating and taking my kids trick or treating. I love to see the surprise and delight in their faces when we approach a home that is all decked out for the occasion.

  37. My fave part of Fall is the position of the sun, still warm, slight chill in the air. The air is filled with the smell of autumn leaves, and everyone else's home decor, finally matches mine lol

  38. I just posted about this on my blog.

  39. I love how fall conjures up memories of my childhood! I also love all of the gorgeous Haloween creations! !XOXO jo

  40. Oh yeah, I almost forgot. I posted this on my facebook too!

  41. Please enter me in to the Giveaway!! I love the pumpkins and apples the leaves turning colors and the start to football and of course Halloween so many wonderful memories it conjures up!!! :) E-mail is

  42. They are ALL so fun! My favorite part of Fall is Caramel apples, but in days gone by, my
    Grandmother's popcorn balls. She always made them for trick-or-treaters.

  43. I also added this link to my facebook page!!!

  44. My favorite part of Fall is looking out of my window at the changing leaves falling while I'm curled up on my comfy couch & sipping hot mulled cider. Classical music is playing on NPR & a wood fire is blazing in the fireplace. Fall is my favorite season & just that autumny smell in the air makes me deliriously happy! Corny, I know, but fun!

  45. Oh! I love the weather!!! It's a nice change from our humidity, but not too cold for us southerners either ;P

  46. Я люблю осень потому что у меня осенью День рождения!За буйство красок.

  47. Ohhhh, my favorite part of fall, cool evenings, cuddling on the couch by a nice cozy fire, hot cider, pumpkin pie!

  48. Hi Pfatt Artists !

    What awesome artistic creations ! They are all so sweet !

    The first thing that comes to mind when someone says fall.... is pumpkin ! Pumpkin pie, cookies, cake, bread , fudge, ice cream.. And prim pumpkins ! My favorite item to make.

    The next is Thanksgiving !

    Please enter me in your very generous giveaway. I am now going to post your giveaway on my blog.

    Happy Fall ya'all !


  49. Fall is my favorite season. Sure, I love all the crisp cool sweater weather, the apples and pumpkins and all that goes with it. But the best part? No more frizzy hair! Yay! xo xo Love this giveaway!

  50. I love driving on a lovely fall morning and seeing the fog filled fields. I also love the way that the sky becomes this particularly intense blue thats not seen at other times of year. I also love seeing the forest changing colors like some vast tapestry.

  51. It is a beautifull...I love them all. Please enter me. I will post your banner on my blog.

  52. I love the crisp air as we drive the Blue Ridge Parkway and look at all the lovely colors that Mother Nature shares with us!

  53. It's so difficult to pick just one part, but I guess I'd have to pick the smells. The smell of a fire on the air; the scent of pumpkin spice at Starbucks. The trees, the candles, the pies-it all smells so great!

    I'd love to cover all the senses though: the sight of the leaves changing, the feel of the air and that waxy skin of a fresh pumpkin on your cheek (oops! Am I the only one who does that?..) The taste of pumpkin (everything!) and the sound of Monday Night Football...

    The only thing that keeps me kicking through this awful heat is that Autumn is soon here!

  54. As fall is my favorite time of year, I love so much about it. I love the smells and the sounds, and the cool fresh air. But mostly I love the colors!

  55. I love everything about fall! The crisp clean air, the beautiful foliage, PUMPKINs, apple cider, Halloween, the cooler weather. Everything is just so magical about the season.

  56. i hope i don't just get to pick one thing i love about fall...because i love the pumpkins, the changing leaves, pumpkin pie, chilly days, the whole creepy halloween atmosphere...i love everything about fall...

  57. I would love to be entered into the giveaway!!
    My favorite part of Fall, well, I cant pick just one.
    It is a lot of things....
    The beautiful colors of the falling leaves and mums.
    The smell in the air, doesnt fall smell fabulous!!

  73. Hello,

    My favorite part of fall is easily the decor! I start looking for unique and interesting decorations several months in advance! I love the feeling that I get when readying our home for the holidays and spending time with the ones I love most is an amazing blessing.

I wait for it month after month and then one day you feel it... that crisp cool air and I know the time has come :) I get out my raggedy scarecrows with hot glued plastic pumpkin heads stuck to their flannel shirts and coverall straps. My silly pink headed witch brewing something special in her caldron full of purple lights. Graves, webs and spiders galore. And that's just the start of it all... Knowing that big meal is coming next. My kitchen is calling and begging... It's time to come back. Get out the stew pots and bakeware... We have some cooking and baking to do :)

  103. Colorful, crunchy leaves, crisp air, wooly sweaters, apple cider, and HALLOWEEN! Everything about fall is fantastic. I also love that autumn brings more time to craft - the summer days were often too hot and humid, so the bit of crafting I was able to complete was done late at night.

  111. Oops! Forgot to include my email address in my original post:

    Another Fall favorite of mine is... Apple Cider!


  112. The best part of fall is in the name: Fall - Temperatures Fall, Leaves Fall, the fruit falls from the trees, pumpkins fall to the ground, stars fall from the sky. The harvest moon is to big, it looks like it is about to fall. The smell of the air is crisp with the scent of fall. The time falls back one hour. Shorter days fall quickly into night. The sky is punched with the color of fall. Here's to the Art Of Fall, and may there be fall blessings for all --
