Happy Fall.

Maybe it's because I'm a New Englander and I have a very distinct idea of what the fall season is supposed to be (apples! pretty leaves! harvest fairs!), but I get excited when the weather starts to turn cooler (but not so cold to pull out the hats and gloves- no.) and the air gets drier and the leaves start changing colors.  It's the perfect time to take advantage of all the amazing New England things- apple orchards, pumpkin patches, hayrides, and things that pop up just once a year, like apple fritters.

In honor of the official start of fall, I set off to find some lovely things to get us all in the mood.

Lovely leaf necklaces (totally awesome for fall wedding bridesmaid gifts):

The warmest-ever looking snuggle blanket:

Love pumpkins?  How about some felted ones to accent a table or shelf display?

Or the soap version, which is even more awesome since it has sprinkles on it:

Love Halloween?  Boo-yah.  Got you covered:

And let's not forget maple everything.  Copper-plated leaves:

Maple cream (yum):

And maple marshmallows!

I'm also a sucker for maple fudge and maple sugar candy, apple pie, cider, cider donuts....yes, there is a theme.

What's your favorite thing about fall?  Is maple sugar candy just a New England thing?  What are you going to be for Halloween?

    I would absolutely burrito myself up in that blanket. It's been delightfully chilly here, too, and the first trees are starting to change. Aaaaah! :-)

  4. What a fabulous collection of Autumn yumminess! As a fellow New Englander I agree with everything you've picked! And I will add, the smell of fires burning in the fireplace. I smelled one the other night as my husband and I sat on the patio sipping hot tea, and it was such a cozy scent :)
