    My favorite part of autumn is the change of temperature and the beginning of the most festive time of year. The onset of children getting back into school, football and the change in scenery.

    Kathi B says:

    My favorite part of autumn is definitely the halloween season. I love going to the pumpkin farm with the kids and finding the perfect pumpkin. Going on a hayride. Seeing the farm animals. I also the the crisp smell in the air. It’s is a very special time of year for us as a family and the kids.

    Dizzy Broad says:

    What do I love about autumn? I love the way the air smells, the crunch of the fallen leaves under my feet and the crisp chill in the air. We now live in California so we don’t get much of any of that. Also, my favorite colors are the fall color palettes!

    I love fall on the shore of Lake Superior. The yellow and orange leaves against the blue lake and red and brown rock is breathtaking. It is also warm here in the fall, so the days are sunny and beautiful. Fall is my favorite season!

    I love going to a local farm and taking a hay ride out to the pumpkin patch. One of my favorite photos of my daughter Melissa is of her sitting in a huge crate of pumpkins.

    Living in a very hot climate with very little true autumn, I guess I’ll have to say the best part is having nights that cool off again!

    Oh, there are SO many things I love about fall, but my absolute favorite has always been going back to school. This year I’ll be teaching instead of learning, but I’m just as excited to be headed back to the classroom and carrying around books!

  • 25
    Kim says:

    My favorite part of autumn in the crisp air. It gets me motivated to clean, start baking and decorating with all the harvest that comes with fall. There is something to be said about how the air smells and feels on a cool crisp Autumn night. It just brings warm memories of smore’s, trick-or-treating, warm apple cider, bonfires and hayrides. For these reasons, Autumn is my favorite season.

    My favorite is the fall colors, in Northern Michigan are the prettiest. I also love going to the pumpkin patch, drinking cider, hay rides, corn mazes, carving pumpkins, halloween decorations, running through and falling in all the huge piles of leaves. Oh and pumpkin pie, yum!

  • 32
    rieca says:

    I love the smell! I love the smell when I walk in the woods, and the sound of the leaves crunching under foot!
    I know it sounds odd, but truly it has such an aromatic smell. Fall ignites all of ones senses.

    My fav part about Autumn would be the crunchy leaves! to walk under the orange and brown trees of the West coast and feel the crispness in the air!

  • 34
    Barbara Hale says:

    Fall is my favorite season and my birthday is in October. My favorite thing about fall is taking a walk with lots of fallen leaves on the ground. When the leaves are sort of dry they make this great crunching sound – to me the sound of fall.

  • 35
    Terri Moore says:

    The colors of the trees.

    Halloween and pumpkin carving!! My kids are 9,7 and 18 months old and just LOVE picking out their costumes. It is great to see the excitement in their faces ๐Ÿ™‚

    Maureen L says:

    I love the cool temps and the colors that abound. Here in Iowa the leaves turn such vibrant colors and the sky is this deep rich autumnal blue.

  • 38
    Kerry says:

    I love the autumn colors on the trees and shrubs, and the feeling of staying cozy inside with a good book and cup of hot chocolate. As a child autumn meant the start of a new school year, which I was always excited about because I loved school.

  • 39
    Kathy McDonald says:

    Crisp fall weather, fresh pressed apple cider and apple spice doughnuts are some of my favorite things about autumn.

  • 40
    Maria says:

    The vibrant colors of the changing season. Autumn marks the start of a new school year…a new beginning…new discoveries….jumping in a pile of leaves…. A chance to wonder about how nature can be so vibrant and alive and welcome change.
    And one of the bestest funest holidays….HALLOWEEN!!!

  • 41
    Marge says:

    Because I live in the AZ desert, my fav thing about autumn is the cooler weather, being able to be outside & enjoy our beautiful state! Also love that there’s so much going on with holidays and the busy times ahead, stamping & creating crafts for all of them!
    Love the new releases (of course)!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • 42
    Nancy Kurul says:

    My favorite thing about Autumn?

    Cooler weather in NC (and finally being able to garden comfortably on the weekends!) now. Until last year, my favorite things about autumn included, the incredibly lovely colorful changing leaves in NY, cool morning fog, firing up the woodstove and cuddling on the couch with my beloved. Hmmmmโ€ฆ

  • 43
    Sarah says:

    Fall is my favorite time of year! I love the beauty of the leaves falling, the end of summer, kids going back to school, settling down after a busy summer, and getting ready for Halloween and the Holidays.

  • 44
    Robyn, Maine says:

    The crisp autumn air, fresh apples, freezing food, big fluffy down comforters, the smell of a wood fire…the cozyness of family and the pending holidays…the connectedness of it all.

  • 45
    Dawn says:

    My husband and I will be celebrating our one year anniversary on October 13th!! Definitely that followed closely by the colors, the cool air, the holidays to come, and not going through 100+ weather every day!

  • 46
    Courtney Ferguson says:

    I love Autumn because it’s still nice and warm (I’m in Australia) but it’s cooling down from the summer heat and has a touch of crispness in the air. I was married in Autumn also, so it is very special to me. And how can you not “FALL” in love with the beautiful Autumn leaves on all the trees!!

    My fav part of autumn is the fact we were married 35 years ago in October. We actually waited til the fall because that is my favorite season……the colors, the scents, the cooler temperatures. I can’t wait to see all the new items tonight!

  • 53
    Patty E. says:

    Autumn is my favorite season so there are a TON of things I like! I love when the leaves change color and I love the fact that it is when we have sweatshirt weather…warm enough to not need a coat, but cool enough so it’s not gross and the bugs aren’t bad. I especially loved autumn when I lived in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula because it was just beautiful!!!

  • 54
    MaryH says:

    My favorite thing about autumn is how the air smells. Crisp and clean. Add in a Macoun apple (my favorite) or two, the changing leaves, and a warm sweater and you have a perfect fall day.

  • 55

    Well, when I was a kid, it was the changing colors of the leaves and the cooler weather. But since my adult self has always lived in Texas, where the leaves don’t change color, I’d say my favorite part is trying to decide when fall actually starts. Is it in September, when the calendar declares it to be autumn, or in late November or early December, when the temperatures finally stay out of the 80s for good?

  • 56
    Elizabeth B. says:

    the cooler weather!

  • 57
    Jennifer says:

    My favorite things are the cooler weather, the change in the trees and colors. Road trips to see leaves. All things pumpkin flavored. Dressing up for Halloween, even though I am almost 30. Fresh apples. Family.

  • 58
    Lee Broughton says:

    My favorite part of autumn is the smell in the air. It reminds me of going to football games on clear, autumn nights when I was in high school. The air had such a wonderful, pungent smell. Good memories!!

  • 59
    Suzy says:

    Being from California, I never got to truly appreciate nor experience autumn until I traveled to the east coast. There is nothing like it – the colors, the crisp air – autumn even has its own sound here, cool wind with colorful leaves waving like flags. I love that sound and color the most.

  • 60
    Kerry J. says:

    Hmm…where to start? Raking leaves and jumping in them, picking pumpkins, Canadian Thanksgiving, hot apple cider….I could go on – but “these are a few of my favorite things”.

  • 61
    Donna says:

    Well, I love getting out the hot chocolate again for the early cool evenings! I also love the smell of burning leaves–crazy, I know, but it brings back fond memories. Oh, let’s throw in smores while we are at it!

  • 62
    Ann I. says:

    I love the colors. All the beautiful reds, oranges, golds and greens. There is nothing more beautiful than a bright, sunshining fall day.

  • 64
    Wendalyn says:

    I love the Fall colors when all the leaves turn orange, yellow and browns… Beautiful

  • 65
    Harriet Skelly says:

    My favorite part of autumn is the cool crisp air and the gorgeous colors. I love the leaves on the trees turning colors, then falling off and crunching them as I walk along. Autumn is my favorite season – I love Thanksgiving (my birthday is around or on Thanksgiving)- time with family and yummy food! I grew up on the East coast and now live in Northern Calif so I really miss this season the most!

  • 66
    Nancy Denning says:

    I love the cooler weather and the different clothes you can wear. I also love, love, love the canyons here in Utah. The colors are amazing in the mountains.

  • 67

    My favorite thing(s) about autumn is the warm days and crisp nights. There is a certain smell and the air feels so fresh and clean.

  • 68
    Kristy says:

    I love so much about the fall. My favorite is the change of colors in the trees and the crisp feel in the air. It’s such a beautiful time of the year and it’s full of family events.

    C. Connolly says:

    Outside, I love the colors Fall brings. Inside, I love cooking/baking all the wonderful comfort foods!

  • 70
    Kim Sheller says:

    My favorite part about autumn is the cool crisp air, apple cider, watching the leaves change colors & visiting the local pumpkin patch. It is also the season of my wedding anniversary, so it always brings loving memories too!

  • 71
    Donelda says:

    My favorite part of autumn is playing in the leaves with my son. We do it every year and he has so much fun!! Looking forward to all the sets tonight!! And crossing my fingers!

  • 72
    Rosemary Dennis says:

    My favorite part of fall is the fact that it marks the beginning of the holiday season.

  • 73
    Kathie in vegas says:

    Living in Las Vegas has its pros & cons. A definate con is we don’t really have the 4 seasons. We have hot, hotter & hottest and windy and cold. (right now we are in the hottest trend) Towards the end of September into October it starts to cool down. My favorite thing about Autumn is the little chill we start to get in the air here. It gets to a brisk 75 to 80 degrees! Oh Shivers! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 74
    Leslie says:

    The thought of Autumn brings back memories of my 3 kids playing in the leaves. I have pictures of all of them covered in leaves at one age or another. Very special memories to a mom sending her youngest off to college in 10 days!

  • 75
    Nancy says:

    My favorite things about autumn are the beautifully colored leaves, and I swear the air smells like a crisp apple! I love that time of the year.

  • 76
    Diane S. says:

    My favorite part of autumn has to be going to pick apples and then coming home and making applesauce. None tastes as good as that first batch of the season!

  • 77
    Sharon Romine says:

    I love all the colors of autumn. Also the food and the crisp cool days.

    Looking forward to seeing everything in the August release tonite. So much fun.

  • 78
    Kelly Braund says:

    I love, love, LOVE fall! It’s my favorite time of year for so many reasons! I love bringing my kids to the apple orchard, hay rides, trick or treating and my favorite is to watch them jump into a huge pile of leaves!

  • 79
    Beverly Ray says:

    I LOVE ALL THE COLOR ALONG WITH CRISP COOL NIGHTS…I LIVE IN THE SOUTH NOW BUT I STILL REMEMBER THE FALL IN CENTRAL ILLINOIS

  • 80
    Tricia says:

    Well, living in New England, I have to say the beautiful trees!! And I love the crisp weather, carmel apples, wearing sweaters, even jackets! And, of course, the great family holidays – Thanksgiving and Christmas. Autumn is my favorite season of the year!

  • 81
    Kelly Gipson says:

    I love fall colors and the cool weather. Unfortunately, here in Texas, we don’t get too much cool weather so we have to turn our AC’s down real low and fake it.

  • 82
    Julie says:

    The cool crisp air and the new sweaters I will have to buy.

  • 83
    Lisa Stenz says:

    I love Autumn, although it is a hard time of year for my family. My dad was killed in a plane crash in October a few years ago, so every year as soon as Autumn rolls around, it is a bitter-sweet time as we remember my dad and celebrate the things that we are thankful for at the same time. My favorite thing about Autumn is Thanksgiving. It is the one time of year that my entire family is able to get together. We celebrate all of the โ€œyear end holidaysโ€ at that time, so we exchange gifts, have a big meal, talk about what we are thankful for, etc.

  • 84
    Purpleflowers says:

    I love the slight nip in the air, the crystal clear blue skies (or maybe just a puffy white cloud or two) that so often dominates our autumn weather and then add in the fabulouse colors of the changing leaves and it adds up to just a stunning time. And of course FOOTBALL (and marching band competitions) are some of my favorite ways to enjoy that beautiful weather.

  • 85
    Lisa says:

    I love that it gets cooler and you can put on your sweats or new flannel jammies! I’m not fond of really hot weather, so the cool fall weather suits me just fine! And the leaves changing colors is another fav of mine!

  • 86
    Karyn says:

    My favorite part of Autumn is Thanksgiving! My DH and I met on Thanksgiving weekend (up here in Canada, we have our Thanksgiving in October-so yes, still Autumn) and I’m always thankful for that. I enjoy the time to reflect on all of my blessings.

  • 87
    Patti W says:

    I love lots of things, but I like waking up on cool, crisp mornings and going to get a chai or latte. Fall for me is always about cleaning and preparing for holidays, so I actually enjoy doing some yard work as the sun warms up the day. Then when my muscles ache and I can’t rake anymore, just when the sun is going down and the coolness is back, time to go in and enjoy some hot chili or taco soup. yum. And I always top a cool evening off with some hot chocolate!

  • 88
    Sarah (SEB) says:

    Definitely the smell of everyone burning their leaves—ooohhh, and the cool nights, sweaters, and thick socks!

  • 89
    Teresa says:

    Autumn is my favorite season! I love every part of it. The beautiful fall foliage, crisp air, harvest time….Oh the list goes on. I start decorating for Autumn Labor Day weekend. I can’t wait!

  • 90

    I love the fall colors, the cooler temperatures and being able to pull out the sweaters after a hot summer. It is fun to stay in my craft room and get started on Christmas projects.

  • 91
    Angie Hamill says:

    My Favorite part of autumn is Halloween, Love the whole season, but love to dress up at Halloween. It is also the time of year that our local Renaissance faire is going on so I get to dress up doubly, 8 weekends for Faire and Halloween.

    Love the Spooky Sweets II hoping to use them and spooky sweets for treats for co workers and friends this year. =O)

    My favorite part of autumn is the beautiful scenery as the leaves begin to change and the air is crisp and clean. Itโ€™s my favorite time of year to go on long drives through the country and enjoy the beautiful display of colors.

  • 94
    Sara Paschal says:

    I can’t wait for the smell of crispy leaves crunching under my feet.

    I also like the apple harvest, pumpkin festival and celebrating the birth of our three children ages 13, 11, and 2
    October 2oth

  • 96
    emily says:

    I love Autumn. School starts. Halloween/Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming. My birthday too… pumpkin patches, colors of leaves (especially around Pennsylvania or Virginia/Maryland – to die for). Chenille socks. Big thick down comforters. The smells of a fire on the fireplace, pies, cinnamon, hot chocolate… man there are so many reasons to love Autumn.
    Great question…

  • 97
    Candice says:

    I love watching the leaves change color and looking for that one tree with the brightest, reddest leaves that just pops out at you.

    Definately cooler temperatures … as I live in Arizona! Love taking the grandkids to the pumpkin patch and trick or treating!

  • 99

  • 101
    Beth (babies) says:

    Color! Fall is an explosion of color that can take my breath away. Spring is all about Hope, Winter is all about solemn stillness, Summer is just dang hot- but Fall is Color!

  • 102

    I really like the colors of autumn. The time at night when you snuggle by the fire and drink some hot cocoa. I love the leaves falling from the sky. It is just so calm, colorful and wonderful.

  • 103
    sandy says:

    I’m down here in Florida and we don’t get much of a fall feeling here, but the tilt of the sun makes more sparkles on the water and the tourist go home and the traffic dies down and the coast is clear (as Jimmy Buffet says).

  • 104
    Paula Guarino says:

    I love all the fall festivals! Yummy apple cider!

  • 106
    cknutti says:

    I love everything about fall, but I especially love to actually watch the leaves fall from the trees out my window. It’s so peaceful.
    I also love taking the candy tax from my kids’ Halloween candy.

  • 107
    Judy Walsh says:

    Autumn (though we really say “fall” in the midwest) is sweatshirt weather, leaves changing colors, pumpkins, the smell of the fireplace at night, and kids going back to school (I’m one of those that actually admit they’re glad their kids go back to school!). Watching my kids play football, doing some baking…these are a few of my favorite things.

  • 108
    Bee says:

    What I love most about Autumn, are the wonderful shades of changing leaves, and the chill in the air that makes you reach for your favorite sweater… and I love pumpkins! ๐Ÿ™‚ Living in Florida now, I really miss that season! ๐Ÿ™

    Sally (crazykindabeautiful) says:

    You know its Autumn here in Melbourne Australia, because the skies are blue, the sun kisses your skin ever so delicately and the air is clean and crisp. There is a glorious big Maple tree in the city, that since I was a little girl my Grandparents and parents used to take me to see in Autumn. The falling leaves and colour of it was the most amazing memorable sight Iโ€™d ever seen. I now, 30 odd years later, take my 4 children every Autumn to see โ€œmummyโ€™sโ€ special Autumn tree, as my children call it!! The colours are something that you could never forget. Itโ€™s the colour of a soft sunset everywhere you look with the city lights and the Red trams in the foreground that Melbourne is Famous for. That for me is what I love about autumnโ€ฆ.. Seeing โ€œMyโ€ special Autumn Tree.

    Marne Spangler says:

    I love Autumn because I love the brisk feel in the air and the changing of all the colors. But most of all, I LOVE to use the work “Autumnal” just to annoy my husband!!

  • 111
    Melissa says:

    My favorite part of autumn is spending lots of time outdoors with my kids and husband. We love to be outside in autumn when the weather is great. We do lots of fun activities like apple picking, hay rides, taking walks, leaf raking, and choosing pumpkins!

    Marchelle says:

    I love the temperature and the gorgeous colors of the leaves. Even though our autumn is extremely short here in North Dakota and we don’t have alot trees, it is by far my favorite season of the years. I love wearing a sweater or a light jacket and the crispness in the air.

    I only wish it lasted a few more months!

  • 113
    Siobhan says:

  • 114
    Nancy says:

    In autumn, I love all the different colors of leaves, hayrides, cider mills, and carmel apple pie!

    Paula Laird says:

    My birthday! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just kidding. I love the crispness in the air, getting to wear sweaters, pumpkin pie, the High Holy Days, and Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is probably my favorite. It’s the one holiday EVERYONE in my crazy family celebrates and I love the focus on gratitude. And I mentioned the pie and the sweaters, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 118

    My favorite things about autumn are the weather, pumpkin patches, halloween, camping, and watching the trees change colors. I have a rust accent wall in my living room so I feel like I always have a little bit of autumn year round! Can’t wait to see all the new sets!

  • 119
    Verda says:

    I love Autumns changing colors, yummy smells, family fun. But most of all candles burning, fireplaces warm and crackling and togetherness in the holidays to follow.

    Danisha says:

    Fall is by far my FAVORITE season. I grew up in California where the weather was pretty much the same all the time. Now being on the east coast, I definately have the “change” of seasons here. I love the look, smell and feel of fall! I love sleeping with my windows open and smelling that crisp air in my bedroom and feeling cozy in my nice warm bed. Along with the smell of wood burning in fireplaces. After the craziness of summer we seem to slow down and really enjoy family.

    I love the fall the most of all the seasons! The colors, the scents, the cooler temps! I would rather wear sweatshirts than t shirts. We were married in October 35 years ago this year and we waited til then since it is my fav season!

    Rhonda M says:

    My favorite part of autumn is the family trip we take to the apple orchard. When I was a kid, we went with my parents, grandparents, and cousins every year. We would get up early and pack a picnic lunch, drive along the Mississippi River to look at all the fall colors, then stop at a teeny roadside park for lunch. It has one of those old fashioned pumps to get water. After lunch we would continue on to the apple orchard, picking our own apples and pumpkins and enjoying the day! Now that my grandparents are gone, I love going even more! I want to keep the tradition alive in my family!

    My favorite part of Autumn is taking picture of my kids in the leaves every year. There is nothing like the images of the smiling, growing faces in the crisp fallen leaves, all different colors. I love to play with the pics after I take them and do some black and whites as well, but the stunning colors are nature’s perfect backdrop….not to mention my four adorable subjects!!!

    Love when its cool and dry (not very often in Vancouver) so you have to wear a warm sweater and the leaves have changed colours but its sunny so you have to wear sunglasses. Either sitting outside a cafe with a hot drink or waiting in line for a matinee during our film festival. That to me is autumn.

    Can’t wait for midnight – or 9pm here to start shopping!

    Sarah H says:

    I never used to enjoy autumn; watching everything slowly die and knowing that a long cold winter was ahead was depressing (I lived in the Midwest). However, last fall I was pregnant with my third child and my doctor told me after a routine ultrasound that the baby had a brain defect. It was a shock, but as I slowly came to terms with the possibility that my child would be born handicapped, I was reminded that each season is necessary-yes the leaves change and fall, and the flowers fade away, but it is all needful. Without autumn, there would be no spring. It took on a new meaning, and now I look forward to seeing things change in nature, since it gives me hope that there will be spring again!

    There are so many things I love about Autumn – hot apple cider, pumpkin patches, leaves on the ground, the warm colors, Thanksgiving, the smells of delicious things baking in the oven. I could go on an on. I think my favorite thing about Autumn is watching the kids dress in their fun costumes and go door to door for treats.

    There’s so much to love about autumn — tailgating at football games, visiting the farm to pick out pumpkins and cooler weather (eventually). My favorite thing to look forward to is the NC State Fair. I love the fair. I like to wander through the farm animals, and I always pet the sheep! Last year the fair got even better when we were able to take our son (then 19 mos. old)for the first time. He gave us a whole new set of eyes for the fair. I can’t wait to go again this year!

    Molly B says:

    To take a part of a quote from You’ve Got Mail”… Newly sharpened pencils… There is something about new school supplies out in the stores that I love. I think it is because back to school was the only time as kids that we were able to get a bunch of new stuff. Money was tight growing up but we always had the best stuff to go back to school with. I still love to stroll down the back to school isles in stores. Just makes me feel like a kid again.

Halloween is my favorite holiday and you have Halloween stamps.I love fruits stamps and you have myy favorite pineapple being released. Every coincidence led me to believe PAPERTREY INK is my new favorite stamp company. Especially since you ladies have a very Martha Stewart style that I love!!!!

    As autumn is my favorite season, it is really hard to choose my favorite part. As I have been thinking about this question today, it has brought back so many memories of autumns past. Based on all these wonderful memories I would have to say my favorite part of autumn is all the smells.

    I love all the smells of a crisp fall day. I can almost smell the fire burning in the fireplace, a pot of homemade soup simmering on the stove, and a batch of homemade cinnamon rolls just ready to come out of the oven.

    Thanks to all the stamp designers for these great sets. I cannot wait to get my hands on them and start creating more great memories.

    Marilyn Wolk says:

    I love fallen leaves. When I was young (about 5 years old), my nephew and I used to dive into piles of leaves from our gigantic Oriental Plane trees that my dad had neatly raked up. We would dive in and then throw handfuls of them at each other โ€“ just like kids splashing in a swimming pool. Of course, my dad did not much appreciate it, but it was sooooo much fun โ€“ until we had to clean up the mess we made. To this day, whenever I see fallen leaves, I am thrilled by them and try to collect as many as I can to put into my flower press. I have so many dried leaves in my collection there is not enough time in a lifetime to use them up in all my project ideas. Yet I can still feel the thrill just thinking about them โ€“ even though they now are brittle and pale.

    Living in Austin, TX we don’t really have much of a traditional fall…I’ve always wanted to see leaves change.

    Julie Samaras says:

    What is my favorite part of autumn? EVERYTHING! I am a transplant from the Pacific Northwest and never knew the meaning of Indian Summer. I do now! Autumn here is a full-blown sensory explosion for weeks. You have the colors of natureโ€™s palette on display, the varied Halloween costumes of the deliriously happy children, the sounds of the dried leaves as they scamper to the next house. You take in the smells of burning leaves, apple cobbler and pumpkin pie. You wear clothes with as many textures as there are layers. And you participate in a grand holiday, seemingly forgotten, squenched in between its calendar cousins, Halloween and Christmas, Thanksgiving. How can we not show our gratitude for such blessings and wonder as autumn graciously bestows upon us. Iโ€™m there. โ€œI Want It Allโ€ to be FALL, all the time!

    Autumn is such a beautiful time of the year – the heat of summer has finally passed, the air is cool & crisp, the sound of children playing outside echos all around, and the smell of chainsaws and school buses fill the air. Remember how you would get so cool playing in the shade only to step out into the sunshine to warm yourself up? These are my favorite memories of fall. Well, that and the free candy!

    My favorite part of Autumn, the colors. I love all the hues of orange, and reds, greens, and browns that appear this time of year. Each room in my home contains at least some of these colors if not all. Orange seems to be my favorite though!

    I love the fall because it kicks off a great season of thankfulness and giving. My favorite part about autumn is the baking everyone, including myself, starts to do. Must be the change of season that brings about the urge to bake yummy, comfort goodies.

    Apples! I absolutely LOVE apples! There is nothing as tasty to me as biting into a fresh off the tree, crisp, red apple. I also love to make apple crisps, apple pies, apple cakes, even a wonderful salad made of apples and Snickers candy bars. I was kinda hoping First Fruits would have apples, but it is perfect just as you designed it!

  • 248

    My favorite part about autumn are those moments when I’m sitting on the couch with DH and the dog watching football while the windows are open and a crisp breeze is blowing in and the sky outside is that perfect October blue. A perfect family moment for us.

    The easy answer is the phenomenal colors of leaves breathing their last from the array of deciduous trees of the northeast. The more thoughtful one perhaps is the memories of our sons playing soccer on a field ringed with colorful trees and shared with the families of their friends in Holland, MI.

    Who could not love Fall? No hot weather (usually) and no snow. What could be better? I love prepping for winter, raking leaves, bring up the firewood, putting the perennials to bed & turning off the air conditioner! Sunny days & cool nights – that’s what I love.

    Fall means cooler weather, a great time to get outdoors, and a time of reflection. Fall is a great time for our family to go camping and spending the days outside. After a very hot summer, the first real cold front is a time for celebration!

    Being a new england gal, fall is by far my favorite season!

    Victoria says:

    That is an easy one! I had to wait 34 years but I finally found the “right guy” and was married in October in Asheville, NC. We both love the fall, the colors and the cool evenings and crisp mornings. When we thought of a date it was a given it would be fall and in NC there is nothing better after a hot sticky summer. We were married outside in the garden with the fall colors of the Blue Ridge as a backdrop and a clear blue sky!
    Now Halloween is my daughter’s favorite holiday and she loves the fall, I guess it is in her genes!

    I am thrilled about the new goodies this fall and look forward to lots of fall projects!

    My favorite part of Autumn would have to be the smell of the leaves on a cool autumn morning before the leaves have all fallen off or are ready to be raked. Sounds strange, but it compares,at least to me, with fresh mowed grass. And of course I would have to say the wonderful colors would be a close second.

    Fall has always been my favorite season. I was born in the fall and so I feel it is ingrained in me somehow.
    The crisp air, the beauty of the earth, it is a true gift from above.
    I know spring is supposed to be the season of renewal but for me it is fall – kids going back to school, schedules starting up again, life getting back into a rhythm – It all make me feel fresh and energetic.
    I love Autumn!

    Stephanie says:

    Getting together with my husband’s extended family in Brown County, Indiana. We always go when the leaves are at their peak of color. The day starts out very early with warm homemade cinnamon rolls, eggs, smoky links, and coffee by the huge fire. Then we go for a walk through the park, take pictures, and spend time cathing up with those we haven’t talked to in awhile. Around noon, we grill out hamburgers and hot dogs for a good ol’ cook out. After lunch, we play a fun game of football in a huge open field and then head into town for some country shopping and strolling through the town. LOVE it!

  • 271
    Gina says:

    Halloween. It’s my favorite holiday. It’s perfect when it’s not too chilly, but a little windy so the leaves whip around at your feet. And it’s the perfect excuse to throw a party in the middle of an otherwise drab season!!

    Autumn is best season of all. The changing colors, the cooler temperatures, the smell of the first fires in the fireplaces, and going to the hills with family and friends to cut firewood with big pots of chili. And then there are the pending holidays – so much to be thankful for.

    My favorite part of autumn would have to be the beautiful array of colors. It used to be that I so enjoyed the quiet time that came with the kids going back to school. Donโ€™t have that anymore though. I always try to just wish I could capture those colors in my coloring of a stamped image. Doesnโ€™t happen, ever. So I decided to just enjoy the colors of nature at this time of year.

    I love all parts of autumn especially after the looong Texas summer. I love the briskness in the air, the rustling leaves, the smell of spice in the air from all the baking, cooking with autumnal vegetables and fruits, the incredible holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving. And when I was in New England I adored the apple orchards drinking fresh apple cider with the smell of apples on the wind and the reflection of jewel-bright leaves on the surfaces of dark blue lakes.

    Autumn is my favorite season! I love the colors (though I don’t get to see much foliage here in suburban Oklahoma), the crisp smell in the air and the cooler weather (but not so cold I have to wear my heavy winter coat!).

    Melissa (moster) says:

    I live in St Louis where itโ€™s crazy humid, sticky hot from mid-June until mid-September. Itโ€™s hard to breathe when you step outside; kind of like the blast of heat that hits you when you open a hot oven. Most summers (though not this one) all the grass turns brown from heat and lack of rain so when autumn begins and the air turns crisp and everything comes alive again with color for a short time as the leaves turns gorgeous shades of yellows and oranges and reds. So I guess my favorite part of autumn is the crispness in the air and the color in the trees.

  • 339

    My favorite part of autumn is cooler weather, finally, and the tradition of going to the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins! I love all the fall colors of pumpkins and flowers mixed together!

    Well, being from San Diego, CA we don’t really have Autumn like the rest of the country. My favorite part is just the subtle way the wind changes. It’s no longer hot out, and I can wear capri’s with a hoodie. Perfect weather. I do wish we had leaves that changed colors, but I’m glad I don’t have to rake anything. Of my three kids only two of them have seen piles of leaves on the ground ONCE. Thanks for this opportunity, LOVE your stamps!

    Hi,
    My favorite part of Autumn is when our family takes a road trip to the mountains of NC and look at all the beautiful leaves change color. Last year we stopped at an apple farm and got hot apple cider!!
    I love Autumn so much because the nice COOL crisp air.

    My favorite part about Autumn is when the leaves on the trees surrounding my house change colors. Everything is so beautiful. And then after the leaves fall, it is so much fun to rake them into a big pile and jump in them with my daughter.

    Autumn is my favorite time of year, so it’s hard to name one thing that I love most. I guess it would be going to the annual outdoor Arts Festival in my hometown with a slight chill in the air as the leaves change to beautiful colors and the scent of homemade apple pies fills the area.

    Stefanie W. says:

    I love how there is a great crisp feeling to the air. Even on seemingly warm days, there is just a feeling in the air that great things are on the horizon. As you know, here in Middle Tennessee, we’ve had many days like this in the past week, which has been an unusual treat for August.

    That feeling in the air always makes me think of my college days and those were probably the happiest of my life.

    My favorite part about autumn is absolutely everything because I was from New Jersey and I moved to all green Florida. I really miss autumn because I don’t really get to experience it anymore like I used to so I decorated my house all in fall colors. You walk in my house and you see warm browns, red, greens and neutral colors everywhere.
    I miss picking pumpkins off the vine and tripping on all the vines everwhere. Now I pick up pumpkins from the farmer’s market. I miss picking apples from the orchard and making fresh desserts. I miss the chill in the air and crunching of leaves beneath my feet. Oh no I’m getting misty-eyed here. There is a lot here I’m reminiscing all about all the things I love about autumn.
    I just have to say:
    AUTUMN IS MY FAVORITE AND MISSED SEASON

    I love fall. The best part of it are the colors – the apples in the orchard – watching my kids pick them and the first crisp bite. The changing of the leaves to yellows, orange, and red – so vibrant and pretty. The black and orange of the Halloween decorations and the colors of the gourds. I just love this season!

    Lisa G/leecee says:

    When I think about my favorite part of autumn I have to think of winter first. In winter, everything is covered with snow and it is fun to play in, after you put on four layers of clothing. After a short time you must retreat inside for cocoa. Well, autumn brings blankets of leaves in vibrant and beautiful colors and different shapes and sizes. The good news is you “might” have put on a sweater but, you can play outside for hours. You can make piles and jump in them. You can listen to the sounds of dried leaves under your feet. You can also gather perfect specimens and create (let your kids create) masterpieces with them later. I have a strawberry tree and during autumn the bark peels leaving a perfectly smooth trunk which is so soft I just love to touch it. During the process it is so interesting looking. I do hate raking leaves but, it beats shoveling snow any day!

  • 393
    Sue D says:

    My favorite part of autumn has to be the changing colors of the leaves. They are so beautiful. I also like the crisp air and the smell of the first fire in the fireplace. Added to all this is the bountiful harvest from our garden.

    Being from Michigan, I love each season equally (with a *small* bias towards summer). Fall however – brings it’s own joy… the smell of the leaves; the colors – red, orange, yellow, green, brown; pumpkin patches; apple cider; sugary doughnuts; bonfires; and the feeling that we are tucking in to get comfortable and prepare for winter.

  • 396

    I used to not like the fall because that meant winter was coming. Now I really love it. I love the fresh air and the changing colors. I guess that means I’m growing up a bit, and that I don’t get enough clean air! I look forward to drives in the mountains to rejuvenate my spirit before starting a winter in the city.

    Scrunching through leaves, crisp clear skies and the excuse to curl up reading in front of the first toasty warm fires of the year are the things I love most about autumn – sadly I no longer get to enjoy these things as I live in a city which has just two seasons a year and is surrounded by evergreen bush (which, I hasten to add is beautiful in its own way) We’re in the depths of winter here in the southern hemisphere, so rather than autumn I’m waiting hopefully for the first blue skies of spring to appear!

    I remember as a child helping my father rake the leaves into big piles then falling into them laughing only to rake them up again. The change of seasons isn’t so apparent in Florida, now i enjoy long walks along the quiet beach deserted by summer tourists and left once again to only the sea gulls.

    Halloween + Thanksgiving = An Autumn of Good Times! Halloeen–I love to be a kid at heart and find that last Snickers. Thanksgiving…family and good food, need I say more. Just two of the many reasons Autumn is my favorite time of the year!

    Jennifer S. says:

    The first thing that comes to mind when I think about autumn is the beautiful changing colors of the leaves. I grew up in CA where the autumn leaves weren’t all that impressive. The first time I flew out to visit my In-Laws in MA, I was blown away by the beauty of the leaves. Now that we live in PA, I can’t wait for the colors to change!

  • 488
    Marissa Jones says:

    Oh – how I wish that the wonderful crisp cool air was enough for me. Autumn is definitely my favorite season just for that reason – however, I think this year (As I am thinking through a pushed to almost crazy state of mind) my favorite thing about Autumn is that my kids will be back in school all day long! I will have time to stamp, and papercraft without the constant interuption of kids either pestering me, or fighting with each other! LOL – Oh how I love my kids – and OH HOW I LOVE IT WHEN THEY START BACK TO SCHOOL!

  • 489
    Elizabeth S. says:

    I love the colors of Autumn. Eventhough I don’t live in an area where the leaves changes color much it is a beautiful sight when I do get a chance to see it. Autumn just reminds me of warmth and coziness.

    Beautiful Autumn weather! Still warm during the day, cool at night, and the rain doesn’t yet come for days on end! I think it is a peaceful season…

  • 491

    What’s not to love? I love the cool crisp air, especially since I live in Texas and it’s been well over 100หš lately. That cooler air can’t get here soon enough! I also love Fall colors, making soup, watching the leaves change and fall off of the trees, hearing the high school bands at the local Friday night football games, pumpkin patches and I really love making Thanksgiving dinner for my family. I heart Fall!

  • 498
    Kristyn Sinnott says:

    Autumn to me means my sister and her family from S.Carolina coming home to MN. Then all of us including our parents, go up to spend a few days at a lake resort near Canada. We spend hours laughing, talking, snacking, playing games and just relishing every moment spent together. They are the best days of Autumn.

    jennifer says:

    I love seeing my boys get excited for Halloween. I love their indecision on picking out a costume. I love the creative costumes they come up with so they can be everything they want to dress up as (ex. a Cowboy/Fireman/Monster). My absolute favorite is Halloween day. They can’t wait for my husband to get home. They are ready to go out before it’s even dark, and they are so excited they can hardly eat their dinner. Then dinner is over when the doorbell rings and we have our first Trick or Treater.. After that, time to get dressed!! Their excitement of the pumpkin being dumped out to be ‘checked’ and their shock upon me sneaking a piece!!

  • 511
    Yvonne says:

    My favorite part of Autumn is the way the shadows bounce off of everything. The colors of the season are more intense and of course the air is crisp. This is my favorite time of the year.

  • 512

  • 513
    Mindy W says:

    I love waking up, having a cup of tea on the patio and feeling that early morning brisk weather that ushers in Fall. Of course, the leaves changing near my family’s mountain home is always a joy.

  • 517
    Michelle says:

    Love this question! I love two things about autumn – the gorgeous changing of the leaves and the days when the sun is warm but the air is crisp and cool and perfect for a walk!

  • 518
    debbie207 says:

    My favorite thing about autumn is driving around Maine looking at the changing leaves.

    During my drive to work in the morning I see the bright colored leaves on the trees along the mist covered river. After work I just want to drive and look at the colors.

    Each year I choose a certain scene to photograph. I take pictures of that location once a week to capture the progress of the changing leaves. Someday I will put all these photos in a scrapbook. Someday.

  • 519

  • 522
    Connie Jean says:

    Hey Nichole ๐Ÿ™‚

    My favorite part(s) of Autumn??? Hmmm… where do I begin? This is definitely my favorite time of year. Weather cools down; leaves change colors. I love the feel of crinkling leaves beneath my feet… jumping with my kids in piles of fallen leaves. The cool crisp night air… a time of harvest and a gathering of friends and family. Back to school. Decorating (it’s really my most favorite season to decorate for). Baking pumpkin and apple recipes and just filling the house with the sweet aroma. Yum. Can’t forget that my birthday is also in the Autumn season ๐Ÿ™‚

    Really, I just love this time of year and I’m looking so forward to its arrival again. I never tire of taking out my decorations and putting them up… I’d do it now but hubby might complain just a wee bit, LOL.

    Hope you have a wonderful evening. God bless and thank you for the opportunity!

  • 523

    I love bundling up in a sweater or fleece and going out to pick pumpkins and getting some really great photos of my boys.

  • 524
    Tanya M. says:

    My favorite part of Autumn would be the start of school ๐Ÿ™‚ I really love the different smells of the season, apple and pumpkin. Also, being able to have a fire and relaxing in front of it, there is nothing better than sitting there with my daughter and reading in the warth, very relaxing ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 525
    nicole says:

    I dont like that autumn means winter is coming since I live in Pennsylvania and we have to endure that cold season. But I do like the changing of the leaves and the pretty colors and walking through the woods hearing them crunch as you walk on them.

  • 526

    One of my very favorite things about autumn is PUMPKIN PIE! Frisch’s Big Boy has the best. I always buy a whole pie the very first day they go on sale, usually the beginning of October. Don’t forget the whipped cream!

  • 527
    Lindsey says:

    I love the chilly breezes that come in with the fall weather. I live in Central Texas and it’s such a nice change from the hot, hot summer! I also love the changing colors of the leaves, even if we don’t get as spectacular shows as those more north.

  • 528

    The absence of humidity (perfect hair days), homecoming, farm markets with roasted peanuts, pumpkins, new sweaters, the crunch of leaves, the first chill in the air, football parties, and the approach of holidays…

  • 529

    Fall is my favorite time of year because of the brillant colors, crisp air, and wonderful smells associated with the season. It’s a time for pulling out sweaters, cooking favorite stews and soups and baking all the delicious good foods that are a part of the season.

  • 533
    Marica G. says:

    My favorite part of autumn would have to be the fall foliage and the cooler evening nights. While I enjoy the hot summers, I love that transition in the weather and seeing the changes occur in nature… leaves changing, shorter days, fall harvest, etc.

    I also love when the kids get back to school… school supply shopping reminds me so much of my childhood and the excitement of a new school year! With two of my three in school this fall, I may actually have time for myself (not likely, especially with a 17-month old, but one can dream!).

    I can’t wait for tonight’s release! Love the stamp sets! As always, great job Nichole and team!

    I love autumn, it is my absolute favorite time of year. The smell of fall in the air, the changing leaves, the crispness of morning. There are too many things to pick from….but, since I have to, I will choose making Halloween Costumes for my kids. I love letting them choose what they will be and figuring out a way to make that happen for them. Then letting them try on the costumes to get ready for the big night and watch their anticipation grow. It is so fun to build such great memories for them. Thanks for letting me share and for always doing such a great job. =)

My spirits start to rise when the days get shorter, the air changes, and… glory be… the weather gets cooler. It feels so homey, and safe, and secure to me. Like a re-awakening after suffering through a miserably hot summer. I can’t wait!

    My favorite part of autumn is my memory of the start of school each year. As a little girl, I loved the start of school. I remember getting a new pencil box filled with everything new, pencils, crayons, scissors,the works. My mom always made sure that my twin sister and I had new dresses for the first day of school. And of course, there was a new lunch box. Even now, as fall gets closer I look forward to the start of a new school year.

    THE COLORS!!! My DH and I always drive to the eastern part of our state to see all of the colors of the trees on the mountains.

    Of course I LOVE seeing all of my grandchildren getting in their costumes and going trick-or-treating. I am lucky, as our tradition is that our whole family gathers (20+ people) to get the kids ready, their parents take them out in the neighborhood and when they come back, pizza and special Halloween treats await!

    Just a great time of the year.

I love the changeing of the leaves too, but there isnt as much of that here in WY as there was when I grew up in CT. Still my most favorite time of year.

    Autumn is full of wonderful scents and flavors. I love to make special foods just for Fall, they taste the best with a chill in the air. I love the smell of apple crisp baking, pumpkin pie, hot spiced cider, hot chocolate and carmel for dipping apples. I can’t wait for the temperature to dip down and start baking my favorite autumn treats!

    I just love everything about Autumn – the vibrant colors of the leaves, watching the leaves fall, the smell of the cooler air, drinking apple cider. It’s the season of Thankfulness, and it reminds me of all the blessings I have been given.

    Growing up in Missouri, I loved the changing of the leaves and wearing sweaters! Here in Texas, I just look forward for the change from EXTREMELY hot to a litle hot!

    my favorite part of autumn is the beautiful night sky. it is so crystal clear, you can see forever~ the stars go on and on and are stunning. the sky is such a rich dark navy, like no other season of the year. and we all know of the famous “harvest moon”. that big bright spot in the sky, sometimes with an orange glow, and sometimes with that gorgeous ring around it. its almost like you’re sure a witch will be flying by it on her broom!!

    The sights, sounds and the smells! The tress are in all their glory, the fallen leaves rustle under your feet, and the smell of dryer vents blowing out the wonderful scent of fabric softner! Yes, I do lots of laundry. Oh, I have lots more, but those are my favorites.

    My favorite thing about autumn is the changing color in the leaves. I love all the scarlets, golds, brown, and fall greens. We live near a village that dates back to the early 1900s. The streets are lined with liquid amber trees and their red and gold colors are just breathtaking.

    The Treats created to thrill our senses! Autumn leaves tickle our ears with their crackle and popping sounds, our nose with their smell (burning or fresh on the ground)pumpkins, nuts, fruits and more to savor the taste buds and what can be more fun than jumping and tossing up a pile of gorgeous leaves. Oh just feel them as you play!
    Autumn my favorite time of year!

    Gayle says:

    The most wonderful thing about Autumn is it feels like a time of new beginnings. Maybe it is the “back to school” thing, the change of the seasons, but it seems like the world is fresh and ready for me to take it on.
