AUTUMN/FALL GIVEAWAY!

Well there has been a lot of talk about Autumn/Fall here in Blogland. So I thought it would be fun to do a Autumn/Fall giveaway.

I found this cute little tea pot and cup for one. I thought it was perfect for those cool Autumn/Fall day and nights. You can really see the detail in this next picture. The lid has a sweet little silver leaf on top. The tea pot holds just enough for one. The pot and cup have embossed leaves and acorns. The handle looks like the branch of a tree.
Even if you don't drink tea this would make a great Autumn/Fall decoration.

So if you are interested in winning this just leave me a message (on THIS post only) and tell me what you love most about Autumn/Fall and you will be entered to win. If you want a 2nd chance to win, just post about this giveaway on your blog with a link back to here. Let me know and I will add your name a 2nd time.

I will be leaving this open until Sept 22nd to give everyone a chance to enter.

Good luck!

Hugs,
Joanne

I love the crispness of the air and the change in colors of the leaves and I love the feeling of renewal that fall brings with it.

Count me in. What I love most about Fall is getting out all of the pretty hand knit sweaters (some made for me by my mother) that have been spending their summer vacation on a high shelf. It's like meeting up with old friends again. And it's always a joy when they still fit!

Jan and Tom's Place said...

Oh, Joanne, I'd LOVE to win a TeaPot and Cup!!! I'm the QUEEN of Tea Partiness!!!

Fall...well, my favorite thing about fall is that Tom and I ALWAYS get to go on a get-away. In the past, it's been to Door County, Wisconsin...my absolute favorite get-away place. But, this year, we will be doing something different...and going somewhere different. We're going on an Antiquing trip...up north in Michigan...sometime this fall.

~Blessings,
Jan

Darlene said...

Oh, you know I would like to be entered. I just mostly love the cool, crisp air instead of the hot, sometimes humid air....I told someone that when we start getting those cooler/crisp days I feel like a frisky dog.....lol. I also like that fall/autumn brings a lot of craft shows to the area and I do like wearing sweatshirts. Okay, you only asked for one thing and I gave you several...sorry, got going there....

Kathy said...

I love fall for the relief it gives from the heat of summer. I love the fall decorations and taking tours of the leaves changing and the crispness in the air.

Mary Ellen said...

Fall---pumpkins, apple cider, crisp mornings and nights, that festive feeling in the air on Halloween night, and on the next move, it will be the actual changing of the clothes ritual...
Love the tea pot......you find the cutest things.

Mary Ellen said...

I posted the give away on my blog.....I did it the same day as when I read your blog, so maybe that will give me some good luck.....tee hee.............

Oh, can I only pick one?!!! I love EVERYTHING about fall. The cooler air, the changing colors, the baking (pies, cookies), hot cocoa, Halloween, pumpkins, gourds, fires in the fireplace, the clothes - cute sweaters, jeans, comfy socks, the flocks of geese flying over the house....just everything!

Glenda~Many Fond Memories said...

Oh pick me, pick me.

It's so cute. I love Fall/Autumn for the cooler air.

And just the time change, I like to sit and watch old movies while it's overcast. Football etc....

Hope it's cooled off for you.

Ciao

countrygirl3031 said...

Pieceful Afternoon said...

I love the joy the fall brings to so many people - the happiness that is spread around when they begin enjoying all the cooler days and crisp air, apples, punkins, etc.

And of course I love the little teapot - it is darling.

LINDA said...

MY EVERYDAY FAVORITE IS THE COMBINATION WEATHER---COOL, CRISP, DAMP MORNINGS WITH WARM, BREEZY AFTERNOONS, EARLY EVENINGS THAT YOU CAN EVEN ENJOY A FIRE.
MY FAVORITE EVENT IS THE VAN BUREN COUNTY SCENIC DRIVE IN OCTOBER. IT IS MILES LONG WITH YARD SALES AND BEAUTIFUL SCENERY AND A BIG CELEBRATION AT THE END INCLUDING MY REAL FAVORITE--THE FLEA MARKET.
THIS TEA POT IS ADORABLE AND ABSOLUTELY PERFECT FOR FALL.
will link you on my giveaways list.

Cottagecheap said...

As strange as it sounds I love the smell of the leaves going back to the earth. The sound of leaves crunching underfoot and the sound as my dog runs through piles of leaves. I also love the feel of falling into a pile of leaves and forgetting I am a grown up with grown up responsibilities as I lay next to my son and giggle.

Diane of Crafty Passions said...

Count me in I just adore that tea pot!!

Love, love, love Autumn. I love the bonfires, hayrides, and pumpkins. I love that it allows us to wear sweaters and not coats, and to make big bowls of soup to enjoy. Who couldnt love Autumn, it is the perfect season, not too hot, not too cold. I like it so much that I named my daughter Autumn, she is born in October. Wouldnt that be a great birthday!
Love the teapot!

JoAnne said...

Fall is my favorite season. What I love most about fall is the cooler temperatures and the beautiful colors in nature. Things seem to slow down for our family also so we get to spend more quality time together.

The light in fall casts a very different light on everything. It instills a different energy in me than any other time of year.

Mo said...

There is something so magical about fall. The leaves changing, the great goodies being baked, the cooler weather.... so dreamy! I think I could go on forever.... football games, Fall Festival, pumpkins, breaking out the hoodies and sweaters, Halloween candy, Thanksgiving!, not having to use the a/c, pumpkin-spiced everything, the chance of rain....

Michelle said...

I love all the smells and sights of fall...from caramel apples and cider/donuts to apple pies and candy corn. The beautiful vibrant changing colors of the leaves. High school football games. The crisp cool air. But I think my favorite thing of all is fall decor - pumpkins, gourds, cornstalks, scarecrows - it's all so cute!

Have a great day!

Joy said...

Hi Joanne ~ please add me to the drawing for the gorgeous teapot.

My favorite thing about fall is the color palette. I love all manner of gold, pumpkin orange, browns, and every shade in between.

bookworm said...

I love watching the leaves change color in the fall. It's different every day! The teapot is wonderful, I'd love to win it!

ceekay said...

What I love most about Fall? I love the smell of the fallen leaves and the crunch under your feet as you walk through them. I love the warmth of warm cider with a fresh homemade donut. I love the nip in the air just enough to sit with a blanket and a cup of tea.
To enjoy all this, I am going back to Michigan in October. I can hardly wait!

PEA said...

Oh what a delightful giveaway!! I just love the details on that little tea pot:-) Autumn has always been my favourite time of the year...not only because it's cooler but also because of the way the world just glows with its Autumn colours!! I'll announce your giveaway on my blog as well:-) xox

My Thrifty Victorian Home said...

I love the beautiful changing trees! I could just walk through a forest all day in the brisk autumn...

jessilynn said...

Hi Joanne, what I love the most is the cooling of the weather. It is so hot and humid in the summer here in Florida, especially today was awful! The humidity was unbearable and it literally felt like walking into an oven everytime I went outside today. I can't wait for the fall days ahead with the crisp air and all the pretty trees changing colors. It is my favorite time of the year.

Thank you for the giveaway! Kristi

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

What a darling tea pot. I am a tea drinker~no coffee. Living in Arizona fall is when it actually gets cold enough that I can drink the tea.
As a child I grew up in a farming community so seeing all the workers harvesting and the first smell of someone's fireplace being lit.

Mary said...

Oh, how I love tea, and autumn is one of my favorite seasons - the other being spring. What I love about autumn is the beautiful splashes of reds, oranges, yellows and browns against the dark green backdrop of the evergreens. It is also a time to go back to comfort food - you know, the kind our grandmothers cooked on a big old cookstove.

The teapot is darling. Another thing I love is acorns.
Thank you for your generous gesture of giving away this adorable teapot.
Blessings,
Mary

Brenda said...

Thanks,Brend

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

What a wonderful Give-away. I love hot tea and do not drink coffee. What I love about Fall is so many different things. It is my favorite season. I love all the beautiful colors. The changing of the leaves with the reds and golds. The orange of the pumpkins. The sounds of rustling leaves. The laughter of children as they play in the leaves....m...

Hootin' Anni said...

Me, me me!!!! I collect holiday tea for one. I don't have one for autumn yet...what a LOVELY set. Yes, put me into the pot.

I'll go add your link on my blog...you betcha! I need my name in there twice. I want this in such a bad way. LOL


What I like most about Fall? Well, many things. Especially the memories of Thanksgivings from my youth, with a house full of family, the good food, the scents of pumpkin pie...turkey and dressing. It's a warm glowing season.

Alice Grace said...

Hello Joanne.
I have always loved the end of summer when the nights draw in and the smell of autumn is in the air.
It makes me feel as if we are really alive and to get ready for the long winter.
The leaves begin to turn and we wrap up warm, the homeliness of fires and family.
Walks in deep woods and red cheeks Cold clear skies, being together. Knowing the year is coming to an end.
Getting the house cosy.
Candles and quiet long nights.
I love this time of year the most.
Debbie

tyketto said...

I love the teapot. What do I love about fall? Sweater weather. Mornings that are cold enough for a sweater. Afternoons that have you tie the sweater around your waist on a walk. Cool nights where you are happy you have a sweater around your waist to put on your arms again.

Michele said...

What a CUTE teapot!!! I love the leaves on it!!!

My favorite part of Fall is the the changing colors of the leaves and the fact that the summer heat is gone!! When I was teaching, my favorite part was getting back to school!!

Great giveaway!!

Thanks so much!

Autumn reminds me that change is imminent - don't know what Winter bring. changes and challenges. The cycle of life, as one becomes another.Summer will be a memory, the Winter, an illusion.

Jo said...

I love everything about fall. I am one of those people that feels at home surrounded by the earth tones of fall. Fall has a special scent of the dried leaves as they float to the ground. I really don't think a lot of people pay much attention to that scent. When I mention it to others, they take a deep breath and the response on their faces tell the story that it is the first time they have taken the time required to notice something that is unique to fall.

Bride2Be said...

Gypsy aka Tam said...

Please count me in for your great giveaway. Fall and what I love about it are the changing leaves, smells of cider and pumpkin pie, crisp days that call me to wear my favorite sweater and pair of jeans, decorating my whole house in all the warm Autum colors while the smell of beef stew cooking in the crockpot lingers through the house.
Have a wonderful day,
Tam

Betty said...

I came over from Anni's site and thanks for offering this neat Autumn/Fall giveaway.

Fall is my favorite time of year. First of all my birthday is in the Fall, so I am naturally a Fall person. I love the cool, crisp air following the steamy, hot summer. And the Fall colors are always just beautiful.

Pat said...

That is such a pretty tea pot for one Joanne! You do such nice give aways!

My daughter is feeling good thank goodness. Her car was a Honda Civic.

I think you look beautiful in the photos! You and Cori were so much fun and I loved our day together.
Enjoy your upcoming cruise! I can't wait to read your blogs about it!

Hugs, Pat

Pat said...

Dang I forgot to tell you what i love about autumn! I love the colors of gold yellow red and orange, the cooler days, apple pies and apple cider, wearing sweaters again, and Halloween candy! :-)
Hugs, Pat

Pearl said...

My favorite thing about the Fall Season are the smells... campfires 'n burgers on the grill... the earthy-dirt in the early evenings as the guys dig for worms to go fishing in the morning... pumpkin pies baking in the oven... apples 'n red hots as a big pot of applesauce simmers on the stove... It's all good, and there is nothing like the cool, crisp air on a sunny Fall day!

Your give~away looks beautiful, Joanne... I have added your give~away info to my blog, with a link back to yours, top right on my side-bar... please toss my name in the hat a few times and I'll say a prayer at my end for my name to be drawn! I am feeling lucky!

Thank You!!!

~blessings~

Reddirt Woman said...

The changing of the colors. There is such an array of awesome colors and on the cool, dewy mornings everything takes on such sparkle. Did you take the photo of the trees reflecting in the water? That is so beautiful and sums up fall to me.

Ms. Tee said...

Hi Joanne :)
I know the giveaway is over, but I just had to tell you how pretty the teapot is. I've never seen a teapot that was a chocolate-y brown before. How unusual and pretty!
