~bring on Autumn giveaway~


even though the calendar says it's still
  Summer
and I am still using my sweet flower dishes above
Miss Autumn can be felt in the air
which makes me very excited because
this is by far my favourite time of the year
{think cozy sweaters... brilliant colours....cinnamon spice candles......fat little pumpkins..........oh my list could go on  forever}


To help celebrate the upcoming season
my friend 
has so generously offered one of 
my sweet friends a copy of 
his upcoming publication

happy happy dance
     



all you have to do is leave me a comment on this post
and you will be entered
easy as pumpkin pie
but
if you want to be 100% guaranteed that a copy
will land on your doorsteps
go order yours here
it is going to be filled to the brim with 
Autumn JOY
Matthew does not disappoint
{plus you may find a little something more in it's pages about me and my love for Autumn}

xox

enjoy what's left of your Summer
but as for me 
I am off to buy a cozy Fall Sweater  
to celebrate the upcoming season

Just a little something from Judy said...

I would love to win one of Matthew's magazines. His talents are endless. I am excited to think that you will be seen in this magazine.

By the way, I have the same dishes as you pictured in this post, the pink rose one. I found a set of them at a flea market and have had fun using them ever since then. And, I love the Autumn too.

Oh! I would love a copy! This looks like a gorgeous book.
Autumn is definitely a favorite season...especially favorite now, that my little one was born in Fall & my husband is coming home to us for good, after a year of being apart because of deployment & his Navy contract - this September. This Autumn will be my favorite of all (I will be throwing him a huge arrival party & then my baby's first!!! Lots of entertaining to be had)

Magpie's Mumblings said...

I simply have to put my name down for this giveaway because that just looks so fall-like. I have a like/dislike relationship with fall - on one hand I love it because it's cooler and the colours are so spectacular, but...it's a lead-in to winter, which I dread!

Marilyn said...

Add me to the list of someone that would love to win this magazine. How exciting to be a part of it.

Poetry and Wild Roses said...

Oh,to make the most of each precious season as it comes! Autumn is definitely a favourite! A new cozy sweater sounds perfectly lovely. Perhaps you need some new earrings,too,maybe a new necklace to go with it... :-)
