Beautifully colored leaves blowing in the Fall wind.

KathrynAntyr said...

Watching the trees change colors..or maybe it is the crisp apples that I love best. Hmmm hard to decide.

Marlis said...

Kelly Donovan said...

Lynda said...

I love that you can smell winter coming from a distance, the fresh taste of chai tea, and the beautiful colors of the season surrounding us all.

Kim said...

The weather finally cooling down (Arizona) and dressing in warm clothes. snuggling up.

Genie said...

it has to be colours of the falling leaves,

Tiffany said...

My favorite season!! Well, I guess it is drinking apple cider - hot of course, although cold is better when I don't want a warm drink. I'm picking that because I have some heating up in the microwave right now!

I love your giveaways - and hope sometime to be able to take one (or more!) of your lovely online classes.

I have your book out of the library so often that I feel like I practically own it ;)

Thanks Alisa!

Vone said...

I love kicking the fallen leaves and the sound of the crushy leaves.
Reminds me of being a kid.

*taisi said...

I love when colored leaves fall from trees , love the sound of leaves when walking in them, love the moment when everything I see is colorful, I love the way how simple things as falling leaves cam make me so,so happy. In fall even rain is ok.
I love fall, just love it .

Fall is a breath of fresh air for me.........a time to reflect after the heat of the summer here in Arizona. Nancy

Leslie said...

Since I live in South Florida, where fall doesn't really exist, I LOVE seeing all the beautiful photos of colored leaves that bloggers are putting online. I terribly miss the change of seasons that I experienced as a small child, and would love the opportunity to live in a place someday where I could feel the crunch of leaves and smell the crisp fall air.

Kirsten said...

I love the colors! Such inspiration and coziness.

susie said...

ooh. . .i love everything about fall. . .the changing colors of the leaves, the chill in the air. . .it signifies the beginning of cool nights in front of the fire drinking hot chocolate and cuddling. . .

The Gypsies said...

Since I live in the south, fall is the wonderful time of year when the temperatures cool down and give us a break from the heat of summer.

Christine said...

I love the fall colors (although we don't really get any here in AZ) but what I love most is the COOLER temps!

Bibiana said...

Finally getting some cool air! I live in So. Florida and we get about 8 months of oppressive heat every year.

peggy said...

My favorite thing about fall is watching the beautiful colors of the leaves, especially the reddish ones. Peggy

The Adventurous Art Teacher said...

Where to begin... I love the cool crisp sunny days, the smell of a wood fire burning, a quietness that also happens with the change of seasons in the east. Leaves, leaves and more beautiful colored leaves, acorns, pumpkins, gourds, and my birthday.

2 Worlds said...

I love fall the colors of tree here where we are is just breath taking to me. it's my favorite season

Kara said...

the change in weather...the recognition that even the joys that come with the warmth of summer need the falling leaves of fall to be appreciated fully.

Kelly said...

Gorgeous little clutch! My favorite thing about fall is college football season!

pattynubs said...

My favorite thing is the light - it seems to soften and have a rich glow about it.

Jodi said...

Pulling out all my fuzzy, warm sweaters!! :)

mkayteem on scs said...

Becky New said...

Pumpkin bread and hot cider.... THIS is fall! :)

jessica said...

kittyj said...

I LOVE the quality of light - peachy and golden!

Carol said...

The smell of the crisp air, closing the curtains early and settling in for the evening and best of all the visitors have all gone home and the beaches are empty

Lost Aussie said...

Blue blue skies, gold red leaves and the smell of spice and woodsmoke in the air.

DanielleScott said...

The trees lining my street leading up to the hammersmith bridge and the river thames,flaming with red,yellow and gold against a dove grey cloudy sky.

Lise said...

Sweet sunrays on my face

milkcan said...

Gotta be the cold crisp weather (and the fact that it means that NYC stops stinking so badly!)

Nicole Maki said...

Your clutch is absolutely stunning.

My favorite thing about fall is the food. Being able to cook soups, stews and chowders again after the hot summer fun. Tonight we're having corn chowder with jalapenoes - something we haven't had since last winter.

shannon said...

I love the feeling of Fall, speeding up and slowing down at the same time, momentum. This is my busiest times of year as a designer and show organizer and yet I can usually find time to take a breath and enjoy the moment.

Thanks!

walking through all the fallen leaves!

Suzanne Reynolds said...

Besides the changing leaves...anticipation of the holidays ahead. I can't wait to cook the turkey, be surrounded by family, bake cookies for Christmas, and all that homey stuff.

Katfish said...

Color! Pumpkins, sweaters and Halloween what's not to love.

Dale said...

I love the nature paints itself with such brilliant colors, the color of a full harvest moon, the smell of wood burning, soft, snuggly, clothes just made to curl up in....so many things I love about Fall!

Ginny Gaskill said...

Crisp apples, crisp air, seed pods, dried flowers.

*jean* said...

my favorite thing is frosty mornings...i love the patterns on the windows...

HollyM said...

I love the cool clear,crispiness of the air. It gives me energy and I'm inspired to create. I notice everything. I love it when the bright colors give way to muted grays and browns, the leaves fall, and the trees and berries are silhouetted against the soft background.

suzanne390 said...

Hi Alisa - love the clutch and would especially love to win it!! My fav thing about fall is the quiet and stillness of it.

david said...

Fall has a poignancy to it in the smell of life's decay, the chill in the air. We reflect on time passing & those we have lost, & then we hope.

Kathleen Kibblehouse said...

Oh my this is a beauty! Well, I love EVERYTHING about fall. That's why my man and I chose October to get married outside in New England. I especially love the smell of wood smoke when I walk my dogs - esp when I smell it for the first time coming from people's fire places.

Theartistsnest said...

The thing I love most about Fall? It's gotta be those gorgeous Kansas trees with the beautiful array of warm colors.

jeannie lucky said...

Fall is football, leaves changing colors, pumpkins and pecan pie.I love it when it becomes sweater weather and a cup of hot chocolate.

A.I. said...

Falling leaves...

Warm, soothing apple cider...

The crisp autumn air...

Pulling your favorite sweaters out to wear...

Penney said...

Shushing my feet through the leaves and hearing them crunch underneath me. Can't wait to move to VA to experience that again!

Lesley said...

Riding on the back of the Harley, sun on my face, trees lit up by the sun as tho they were plugged in with electricity, the smell of fall air.

lee said...

No snow usually till the end of november

Mattie said...

my favorite thing about fall is my birthday!

nadia said...

I love hearing the leaves crunch underneath my feet when I go for a walk. happy weekend! ciao!

Carrie said...

getting back from a jog and wanting cocoa to warm up rather than a shower to cool down is the best thing about fall

miz katie said...

This year I'm actually enjoying the time change, and having night come quickly. Totally strange for me.

Paula said...

Pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks!

Susan said...

The cool crisp air...aka "football weather" and the phenomenal colors
that mother nature paints the trees and bushes.

Thanks for doing this!

Susan

Hugs Giggles

The Dreaming Bear said...

The sound of crunching leaves under my feet.

spiritbear said...

Here in New England everything is hauntingly beautiful and old feeling. Most of the leaves are down and you can see the bones of the trees. I can smell the smoke of a neighbors wood stove. We work outside hauling away tons of leaves as the kids jump in them. Its time to put everything away outside and ready for snow.

Kristi said...

The colors....golden glow from the leaves, the dark tree trunks making lines on the horizon, the purple sunsets.

Leann said...

A break in the rain, clear blue sky, scarlet leaves.

jane eileen said...

Seeing the grandbabies in their Halloween costumes and spooky dinner at my daughter's house with the family - for sure!

Ellen said...

Backing up to a piping hot woodstove. Aaaahhh.

LRW said...

I love the crunching sound of the leaves when you step on them.

cat said...

I love this time of year because in the cool evenings we light a small bomb fire out back and toast marshmallows. I love the warmth, glow and smell of a fire.

Karoda said...

Autumn's reds and golds are the most captivating of all reds and golds!

Claire said...

My favorite thing is the color... but then again... it might just be leaving the patio door open and not worrying about the screen... NO BUGS!

creativecoup said...

I love the fall because the apples are really fresh and the winter squash fill the farmer's market. I get a very intense urge to sew the 2nd week of October too, I love to sew all year but as soon as the temp drops in AZ the machine stays out full time! :0)

Love the clutch and the arm warmers! Thanks for being so generous and good luck everyone!

Georgayne A said...

Being a transplanted Texan in Iowa I love the fall because it postpones WINTER!

Thelma-Art said...

Beautiful colors, I can feel the falling leaves.
Great!!!

Rachel@oneprettything.com said...

The food! Fall brings my favorite ingredients. Squash, pomegranates, brussels sprouts, flavorful greens... I just love to create meals this time of year!

Sabii Wabii said...

We have the most colorful tree on the block. Vivid colors in red, yellow,green and orange with red berries. Green ivy climbs up the trunk. My house is for sale and this tree is one thing I will miss very much!

Di McDonald said...

I love to sit by an open fire at night and listen to the sounds of the fire crackling.

Patricia said...

Fall is a total sensory experience. I love the feel of the damp, cool wind on my face, the smell of vegetation, rain, and wood smoke. The sounds of leaves blowing in the wind, rain against my window and tires hissing on wet pavement fill the air. My windows frame the changing colors of leaves, birds flocking to the feeders, and clouds scuttling through the sky. It is a time of change, new beginnings and drawing close.

altermyworld said...

i love when the leaves falls, it rains and then it dries out, once the leaves blow away, there is a skeleton relief print of the leaves on the sidewalk, this has always been a favorite thing of mine and i think a most private treasure cuz i wonder does anyone else really notice them?

Elicia said...

colors and cold.

Juanita said...

Sleeping with the windows open, cuddled down under layers of quilts and hearing the rooter crow in the morning. Leaves are also a favorite!
I Love ALL of your leaf projects!

Chandra said...

getting to wear snuggly sweaters

idagray said...

The vibrant warm ,rich colors mother nature provides as beautiful ongoing picture as I look in any direction outside. The yummy scent and taste of apple cider in my home. The start of hanging out under soft cozy quilts ,while watching the beautiful follage fly all my yard with the cold brisk wind. I love Fall.

~Valentina~ said...

Ohh hope I'm not late for the giveaway!
I Live in Miami and we dont really have "fall" but I can usually you can feel a litte bit the change in the air and that makes my *HAPPY!*

Nelly Eisenhower said...

My favorite thing about fall is FOOTBALL!!!!!

Kara said...

The smell of fall takes me back to when I was a little kid jumping in a big pile of fresh fallin leaves with not a care in the world! The leaves change just as I need change in my life, it is like perfect timing!

shannon said...

First of all, your stuff is SO completely amazing and inspiring. Oh my gosh I'm soooo happy to have discovered you and your work. Ok...it's Monday, I hope I'm not too late to enter for the giveaway.

My favorite thing about fall....so hard to pick just one thing...but for me, symbolically, I love that it becomes a time to embrace the beauty in change. Bring on change baby.

alisa said...

It's hard to define. One moment I think it's the color, next it's the sweatshirt weather with crisp blue skies and air that always seems fresher and more lively. And there is the anticipation of the first snow...thrilling. Fall is by far my favorite time of year. I think it's intensified by the fact it's so short, at least in Michigan, and I am never certain just how long I will be able to appreciate its gift, so I try and take it all in while it lasts.

P.S. I just found out about your work not long ago. Love it! And great name by the way:)
Blessings, Alisa L.

jackie said...

Wow so many responses. Perhaps I'm too late; its still a foggy and so cold Monday in the UK. I like treacle toffee and sparklers on Bonfire Night.

Flying Whale said...

grey looming skies full of pendulous clouds which bring out the colour on the trees. settling beside a fire after a chilly walk.

fall is my absolute favourite, there a million pieces to love about it.

geogems said...

Fall has always been my favorite time of the year. Our 46th wedding ann., Oct. 5. NO FAKE BACKDROPS just God's canvas of reds, yellow, oranges and tips of green. Pumpkin patches (and pie); apple farms and football games. Raking leaves and jumping into them...smells of fireplaces etc.etc. Georgia Lichon

reneemichelle said...

I love the colors of fall, crisp oranges, ruby reds, gray blues and golden yellows. The colors are warm and inviting.

I admire your free spirit and wonderful ideas,i try to learn something of it.

Jeanne said...

I love the way fall air makes you feel very alive. The air is crisp, the colors are amazing and the smells are a celebration of life.

Cathy Barnes said...

Favorite thing about Fall: THE COLORS. The reds, oranges, yellows and burgundy all set off against a brilliant blue sky. Love it!

Flavia said...

In the change of seasons, nature reminds us of its eternal order amid gorgeous seemingly chaos. Nothing more inspiring and creative.

Shannon Bates said...

I love the crispness in the air, as the wind swirls the falling shades of orange, gold, and scarlet colored leaves around my feet. The smell of apples and pumpkin spices and the warmth the the first fire of the season. It is all a sign of the wonderful things to come.... The warmth of family, friends and fellowship of the holiday seasons of Thanksgiving.
