  1. Beautiful ornament!
    My favorite part of fall is always the leaves. Every single year I marvel at the rich, bold colors. I love going for walks and collecting different leaves to press and use in my art and crafts. I just have this need to preserve the beauty of nature.


  2. My favorite part of fall is the colors! Unfortunately we had a really warm Sept. and at the end of the month we had frost, so the leaves went from green to on the ground without changing color. It was quite disappointing.
    You have a beautiful shop!

  3. My favorite part of Fall is going apple picking. We do it every year and it's just so fun..plus I get to do lots of baking.


  4. My favourite part of fall is the fact that I'll be getting together with my family more, especially for Halloween and Thanksgiving. The sweets, the amazing food and the good times!

    Thanks so much for doing this:)!


  5. My favorite part is right now - everything is still quite colorful, all the works in the garden is done and it's time to knit or crochet :)

  6. My favorite part of fall is the few days when it's cool outside, but not too cold that you need a jacket. We have one of those days today and it's wonderful!

  7. My favorite part about the fall is the foliage--in fact that's the only part about autumn that I like. We're having a lovely foliage season here in Maine, with lots of red this year. But later I will have to rake them all up, and I will HATE autumn then :)
    Thanks for the chance at your giveaway! Your work is beautiful, I especially like the piece with the birds hanging from it.

  8. That's beautiful, my favorite part of the fall is watching the leaves change color.

  9. Normally it would be the amazing scent of the rd and gold maple leaves, but right now I am hungry, so it is pumpkin pie. :)

  10. Apple picking with my kids. So fun and then we get to bake afterwards!

  11. My favourite part of fall are the leaves- my family and I like collecting particularly colourful and large leaves, and we keep them in books. It's a fun family tradition...though trick or treating is second favourite :)

  12. My favorite thing about Fall is the Bonfires!! Marshmallows or not,i love the sight,sound and feel ;)

  13. I love fall colors, so many changes!

  18. The smell of fall in the air. Can't replicate it! Woodsy, smokey, chilly... yum.

    Thanks for the chance!

  19. My favorite part of fall is breaking out our long sleeved shirts, scarves, beanies - we live in Florida so we only get a good 2-3 months of cooler weather, so I milk it for all it's worth. Oh, and hot cocoa, lots o fit. :)

  20. My favorite part about fall is the leaves! I live in a valley surrounded by trees and I love to see all the different colors!

  21. Autumn is my favorite season. The cool crisp weather with the sun hanging low in the sky. I love lighting a fire on the fireplace-the smell of wood burning and the warm glow it gives off. The leaves changing color suddenly and letting go of the branches to carpet the ground in shades of gold. It is a season filled with wonderful sights and smells and seems to be over all too quickly.


  22. I love all the outdoor festivals and hot apple cider.


  23. My favourite part of fall is the scene of falling leaves. It's quite pretty and romantic.

  24. i love the whole atmosphere of fall. the crisp air, the smell of earth, abundance of colour, the hot mulled cider and cuddling up by a fire.

    beautiful ornament!

  25. BEAUTIFUL comments everyone for such a wonderful season, Thank you for stopping by! I love reading them ALL!
    This morning the gorgeouse fall colors are covered in white!!! The trees do not like this and neither do I :)
    Good luck to all!

  26. my favorite part of fall is the scents, I love the smells of a fresh baked pumpkin pie,or my fall spice cupcakes.Whenever I smell these I have a big smile on my face.and the other reason I adore the fall is because of Halloween ,I get to dress up and have a blast with my boyfriend and family.


  27. What I love most about fall is going to Starbucks with my best friend to get our first pumpkin spice latte of the season, then taking a walk to look at all the beautiful leaves and enjoying the fall sunshine- it's so unique and different from summer's sun, don't you think? :)

  28. What a pretty ornament! My favorite part of fall is mums. I love them! And the prospect of not having to mow the lawn for a few months:)

  29. I visited your lovely shop and I fell in love with The Gathering, Window or Wall Sculpture, Stained Glass...

    I love Autumn... leaves falling the sound when you walk above them and its lovely colours!!!

    thanks for the chance!

  31. How pretty is this! My fav part of Fall is raking leaves and the trees turning beautiful colors! Thanks! jacquecurl1@gmail.com

  32. I love the weather, eating out on the deck with a fire in the fire pit, carving pumpkins, going trick or treating in the neighborhood. Red leaves. The harvest moon. And your moon ornament is quite lovely too.


  33. Oops! my email is anmabar@gmail.com

  34. The spectacular colors of the leaves. The sound of the wind blowing through them and turning the a/c off! :-)



  35. the changing leaves and the smells of fall are my faves. the smell of pumpkin and spiced cider.

  36. My favorite part of fall is cooking. My mom, my kids and I cook all sorts of things in the fall, and it is always such a nice bonding time.

  37. I have been a fan of your shop for a while now. I love your style and artistry!

    The best part of fall is the color change. Luckily, in Michigan, we get to enjoy it for quiet some time. Apple cider is a nice bonus as well :)

  38. Fall would have to be the nice cool weather after all that summer heat. Also, the leaves. I grew up in the country in a valley and it was always like the valley was just lit on fire...It was awesome to rake up the leaves and sleep in them for hours.

  39. I love Autumn because it always bring back wonderful childhood memories of going on adventures in the forest to find fall leaves and acorn and other finds to make fall centerpieces. It is a time of year when I settle in to prepare for the winter and begin thinking of different ides for the Holidays. This is a time for Family Reflections, Hope, Caring, Giving and Love. A time to remember to Thanks God for all his Glory as he gives us these beautiful Seasons.
