My Favorite Things for Fall 2018 October 27 2018

 
Fall is my favorite time of year.  I love the sunny yet cool, crisp mornings and the vibrant foliage.  It reminds me of my childhood growing up in the country surrounded by our animals on 48 acres outside of Toronto, Canada. It was also the time of year to start preparing for the snowy winters.  Even though I live in a much warmer climate now, fall still makes me feel like "nesting" and turning my attention to the inside of my home. I love switching things up a bit to make it warm and comforting for the cooler weather. Here are some of my favorite things for fall!

 
Bay Leaf Wreath
Welcome guests to your home with the fresh, woodsy smell of bay leaves. One of my long time favorites, this Bay Leaf Wreath from McFadden Farms is perfect for the front door or I like to hang mine in my kitchen and use the bay leaves while cooking. These beautiful, lush wreaths are only available from October to January and they sell out quickly.  Also makes a great culinary hostess gift. $37.50
 

Pumpkin Candle

This limited-edition Pumpkin Spice Scented Candle from Williams Sonoma will make your home smell so yummy! This essential oil candle blends harvest pumpkins with the classic fall scents of cinnamon, ginger and cloves. This would make a great hostess gift too! Regular Price $19.99, on sale for $15.98

 

 

Also part of the Williams Sonoma Pumpkin Spice Collection is this fall fragrant Dish Soap.  It's a splurge for dish soap at $12.95, but it actually makes doing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen so much more enjoyable!  In fact, I love it so much that I want to share! All orders over $299.00 (excluding shipping) will receive a bottle as a free gift, just enter code "Pumpkin Spice" in the discount box at check out : )

 

This time of year I like to go through my home to declutter and reorganize. I've been searching far and wide for the perfect canisters to store our protein and vitamin powders for our morning smoothies and finally found these. I love the modern grey color and they have a chalkboard strip to label the contents. Available in four sizes. From Crate & Barrel starting at $14.95       

 

                       

 As the days get shorter and nights get colder, I like to make our bedroom as cozy as possible. I've been loving the Macy's Hotel Collection bedding for the past couple of years now. In particular, I LOVE their down-alternative fiberbed  that makes your mattress feel like a cloud. Queen size on sale right now for $191.99, the ultra clean down fill comforter queen size is on sale for $175.98 and their resort quality, ultra clean down filled pillows are on sale as well starting at $70.38.

 

 

As the weather is cooling down our dog can travel with us more in the car and he is on cloud nine!  He loves nothing more than being in the car! We bought this backseat hammock for our Jeep and it was DEFINITELY worth the investment. It is excellent quality, has a thick waterproof lining and it's machine washable. We've had ours for over a year now and with weekly washings, it is still in excellent condition. Available from Chewy.com for $97.49
