    It was such a treat today to wake up and feel a chill in the air here in Michigan, I can only hope that fall is soon on its way. Corn shalks, pumpkins and gourds. A natural look for decorating is always my favorite look, with lots of carved pumpkins to greet

  52. What an incredibly awesome giveaway!! I would be so honored to be entered for a chance to win any one of these great creations!! Let's see....my favorite thing about fall...that's tough, as there isn't much about it I don't like ('cept the season that follows it....)....but I would have to say the fullness and richness....of the colors, the harvest, the season...there are no colors more vibrant or seasons where the temperatures feel as intense....a fall "coolness" is so fresh, and a warm fall day is as warming as any summer day could wish to be...everything is just "fuller...."

    I have happily posted your banner on my blog sidebar with a link back here...

    Thanks so much for this great opportunity!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  53. Fall always reminds me of the happiest time of my Life. My daughter was born in Fall, and we were still living in the US. It was only 3 years later when she was diagnosed with Autism, and we had went back to Germany. Since then my Father visits each fall to see her, and sometimes I wish I just could get on that plane with him, and I ask myself what would have happened if we had stayed there. So each Halloween, I get extremely homesick. YOur Art is amazing, I LOVE the dolls you make.

  54. What I enjoy most about the fall is the perfect weather. It's neither too hot nor too cold. I tend to always run a bit cold and love being bundled up - so this makes it perfect for me. My husband says he loves the colors the most. Oh and my favorite holiday - Halloween is also during the Fall. tlabunski **((gmail))** If any of you read this feel free to hop on by http://rinnisplayground.blogspot.com (that's my sister) She is having about 3 giveaways within the next month. The first to start Monday 9/12!

    All of these things look wonderful folks. You are all so talented!!
