a special OCTOBER giveaway...



... because it's the start of my favorite season. although, i'd like it much better if it actually looked and felt like fall. this is when i really hate living in the freakin' desert. would it be weird if i bought some fake fall -like leaves and just sprinkled them all over my front lawn?


so, every year i order one of these yummy treats from Williams Sonoma:

Halloween Caramel Apple

seriously the most delish caramel apple EVER. and guess what? i want to share! yep... if you leave me a comment telling me what your favorite fall tradtion is, i will enter your name into a drawing and the winner will get to share in the joyous delight of this most delicious treat (don't worry... nuts are optional. ahem). 
so... drop me a line by october 15th. i will draw on the 16th. wheeeeeeeeeee!

have you seen the new fall pottery barn catalog?  i would so love to recreate this in my entryway. *swoon*



i'm hoping to get to "fall-ify" my house in the next few days. i add one new holiday handmade decor item every year. the new one is in progress and i'm crossing my fingers it turns out as cute as it is in my head. i'll be sure to share it if it does. heh. this was last year's project:


(awwww... lookit my little corduroy punkins. i LOVE those suckers!)


in other news... the new challenge is up over at simply ArTistiC! jenny tucker presented us with a fun "Alice in Wonderland" flower challenge and omgoodness... you must see what our GD and the other ArTCees whipped up for this one. super cute. 

here's the ATC i made for this challenge:


come play along! there's plenty of time to get one in for this challenge. the deadline is october 15th. and you can win fun prizes and trade with other ATCers. that's the best part. :)

here's wishing you a happy october and start to the holiday season!

Um, yum! I ate a caramel apple last night, but that one looks way more special! I too LOVE fall and October is my favorite month. We usually head up north to Hearts Prairie in Flag to see the leaves and I must eat pumpkin stuff as much as possible until December.

My favorite things to do in the fall are drink Caramel Apple Cider and go apple picking.

Note: living where it's *actually* fall isn't always awesome. This whole 50*ish weather blows.
