september giveaway

I'm kind of sad that August has come to an end. The start of September means that the summer is pretty much over and it's time to start thinking of cooler weather and *ugh* the impending winter.

The other day I squeaked in horror when I saw 3 red maple leaves on a tree that had otherwise green leaves. Oh no! The leaves are changing colour already? I'm not ready! I'm not ready!

I guess there are some bright sides to September:
- I have a trip planned for the end of the month (more on that later!)
- I have lots of pretty jackets and sweaters to wear
- the NHL hockey season is starting up again
- ....ummm....

*sigh* Ok, I can't do it. I'm still in "summer mode".

I know that some of my readers are on the other side of the world from me, so as I move into the cold seasons, they're moving into their summer (lucky!), so no matter where in the world you are, I want to know - what are you most looking forward to this September/October?

I'll do a random draw from all entries received for this lovely autumn inspired bobby pin and ring set.

I'll admit I do like living someplace where leaves change, but really my favorite thing about Fall is that it means winter is coming! The colder, the better!

I'm looking forward to leaves changing, because I always like to rake them, and love Halloween! I also love snow even though it gets so cold here.

I am looking forward to not much, as I hate the dark nights, but at least the trees will become beautifully coloured and I will appreciate the warm days with blue skies a bit more :)

I'm looking forward to new coats and boots. I always have trouble choosing just one coat and one pair every autumn - there are always so many lovely things in the shops!

I love the stuff you make! This Autumn inspired set is lovely. I look forward to leaves changing colors, and wearing sweaters and coats. I grew up in L.A. but moved to the Pacific Northwest, and I absolutely love watching the seasons change.

I'm looking forward to the cooler weather for sure. It's been triple digits in Texas for the last few months, I want to be able to go outside without dying :-)
