Mums and cinnamon brooms are the two things I look forward to gracing my home with each fall. My fall favorites. The cinnamon brooms were not quite out at the market yet, but mums there were a plenty.
I picked up three at Walmart. I hope I can keep them alive at least until Thanksgiving... or Halloween.
Something else arrived that I look forward to getting each fall as well...
A big honking box of goodies from Carol at Candles From the Keeping Room.
Let me tell ya. It was a good one. I will post it this week coming up.
Some melts I have enjoyed:
Blending Mainstays Mulled Cider with Woodwick Cinnamon Cheer (very good!) and Candles From the Keeping Room Amish Quilt and Apple Dumpling.
I kinda miss shooting the breeze with my melting basket posts, which are on hiatus during the Fall Fun Series so I am stealing this moment. Beware... I do get a little personal on this one so if natural talk bothers you, consider closing out here. <3
I am reading White Oleander right now and I think it is making me a little exhausted with my extra hormones and all. But I will definitely be finishing it. We are headed up to visit one of my best friends who is having a house warming/wedding celebration. I am quite excited to see her, as we don't get to very often. I had a nice week at work. A student gifted me a sweet stuffed animal that she made into a pandacorn (half panda, half unicorn) and after a particularly rough day of cramping and Blood Moon misery I came home to flowers and a note from my husband that he had put a pint of Ben & Jerry's in the freezer "to sooth your weary uterus." I "awwwww'd" out loud and said "he really does love me!" and Scarlette's voice came from behind reminding me "Mama, he has always loved you."
Is your fall off to a good start? Do you have any items you look forward to getting each autumn? Are you a cinnamon broom or mums kinda person? Let me know how you are doing. Please check out the blogs on my sidebar to see what fall item must-haves they love to get.
