Fall is in the air…

Posted on September 7, 2014
Hi Everyone! It may not officially be fall yet, but it’s September and that’s good enough for me! As soon as August ends, fall begins to sneak its way into our kitchen and our home, and I thought I’d show you some glimpses of it today! This is my favorite season weather-wise, cooking-wise, baking-wise, fashion-wise and decorating-wise… so in other words, I love fall! I love the cozy flavors, warm colors, spiced scents and soft textures that it brings with it, and here are just a couple pictures of the beginnings of fall around here!
The first fall essential? Cozy blankets, and lots of them! I’m sort of a blanket hoarder, I feel like every time we travel to a new country, I bring back home a new blanket! The blanket on the top (in the picture on the left) is from our trip to Scotland this summer (which you can read about HERE). But that’s not the only thing we’re all wanting for the oncoming fall season. Another fall essential? Smellies of course! There’s nothing better than the smells of wood smoke and homemade chutney and crispy leaves and…. some lovely home scents for indoor enjoyment too. We need new aroma oils and scented candles, we need to stock up! However I have had a little peruse around the shops and found this Cinnamon Chai Wood Wick candle is my new favorite, it’s like fall in a jar!
I love having fresh cut flowers around the house, and I fell in love with this fall-themed petite flower bouquet as soon as I saw it! And on the right, more candles; because you can never have enough.
Textured picture frames and the coolest antler-like wooden candle sticks.
A stack of our favorite magazines on the coffee table. And a hot cup of tea – maybe my favorite thing of all!
Fall also means cozier, heartier dinners, which I am totally ok with! As well as full cookie jars. Which I am also ok with! (A current favorite? THESE Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies!)
Cozy pillows and blankets.
As summer’s last days are passing by, I’m looking forward to the next season and all that it will bring with it! The crisp air, the colorful leaves, the pie baking and hopefully many new happy memories! I hope you all have a great week and enjoy the coming new season!

    Such lovely and inspiring tidbits! Nice presentation too. I must admit to feeling like rolling up in a cozy chair with a cup of butternut squash soup and enjoying a good book after looking at these. Very nice… 🙂
