Simple Pleasures Of Fall
Granny Smith Apples
Aren't they a beautiful shade of green? I love to make delicious applesauce and dumplings them with.
Libby's Pumpkin
I get excited when I see them stocking up on this is in the stores because I know Fall is not too far away! I always stock up when there is a good sale because we love pumpkin at our Home Place.
I love to make Pumpkin Cranberry Bread (recipe on sidebar) with it!
Mums
They come in such beautiful colors. I love to line them up on my front porch.
Candlelight
This is my favorite new scent for Fall. It is called "Mulling Spices" and my goodness, does it smell good!
I love the beautiful glow of the candlelight at night ~ it makes our home feel so cozy:)
These are just a few of the many, many things I love about this time of year! What about you?

I love to light up those candles too Susan. I have not seen the Yankee Candle Mulling Spices scent. I will be on the lookout. I did see Autumn Wreath but was not in love with the scent. Your home looks so cozy.

I haven't come across the new Yankee Candle scent yet; I'll be on the lookout for it. :)

Your mums look so pretty. And the pumpkin cranberry bread sounds delicious. I think I'll make some soon. Thanks for the recipe.

Hey Susan, I just purchased that new Mulling Spices last night. I received a coupon in the mail, buy one large candle, get one free. So, I purchased Mulling Spices and Autumn Wreath. I didn't really care for the Pumpkin Pie one though, which surprised me. . . because I love pumpkin!! *Sigh* I adore the smells and sights of autumn!!

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love your mums they are beautiful!! It is so hot here that I haven't bought any yet. I love pumpkin bread and pumpkin muffins. Fall puts me in the mood for chili and soups. Yum!
Oh, candles are one of my fav things to have around the house. I have pumkin spice candles in my living room. It makes the house smell so good. :)
Have a wonderful weekend.
