fall favs

Fall makes me feel so cozy...the cool crisp air, and coming in to the spicy scents and warm glow that is home. Here are a few of my fall favs for this year...

My new 'creative' candle holder from Partylite...
there are two glass cylinders which you can put whatever you like in between to create a totally unique piece, and then a separate little glass cup sits in the center to hold a tealight...Kate had pressed some lovely fall leaves, so this was what we did for a fall coffee table centerpiece. I can't wait to see what we can come up with for Christmas!!
I found a real bargain at Boscov's on Friday when Kate & I had our 'girls' night out'...these adorable little pumpkins on sale for $1.99!
I got a few new Yankee jars (another bargain I found - they went and put an outlet near my house!! not good!!) - this one is my 'pumpkin pie', which I burn simultaneously with a 'carmel pecan'...mmm. Speaking of 'mmm' - we've also been making lots of apple crisp! It's a hit with my family and I consider it a fairly healthy snack - or even breakfast! I also enjoy a steaming hot cup of vanilla chai tea with it as well.


So, what are your favorite things that autumn brings?

Love the candle holder! Wouldn't it be nice to actually be able to sit down and enjoy the wonderful fall things at each other's houses?!

Fall is my favorite season and I love to decorate. Haven't done much this year b/c of some financial goals we have..but, looks like you scored some great bargains!! I did find a decent mum for my front porch for $2.75..pretty thrilled about that. Otherwise, I've got very few decorations up this year.

That pumpkin pie candle is one of my favorites from Yankee... everytime I look at it on your blog I have the urge to run out and buy one for my home. MUST. RESIST. =)

You're lucky to have an outlet nearby!
