Fall - It's Official



It's here folks. Yeah!!! I  have been forcing that fall feeling around our home even though we still have been running our A/C when needed. I am in love with this new candle from Bath & Body. It is a close second to  my all time most favorite candle.

I also baked banana bread much to my daughter's delight. Her sister took her some fresh from the oven and made her morning.



I re-did my spice cabinet last year as I was not thrilled with the everything falling all over the place system I had before. I decided to contain everything in labeled baskets arranged by category. You can see my system here.


It has worked beautifully and the proof is I am still using it over a year later.

And last in celebration of fall have you seen these. Anything with candy corn is divine to me but white chocolate candy corn M&Ms. Be still my heart. I am on the hunt. Will let you know how they are after I eat the whole bag.

I am accumulating quite a collection of "gone bad" bananas on the counter and in the freezer. Looks like maybe a marathon banana bread making session for me this weekend. The freezer will be well stocked after this!

I just bought that candle too, and my pumpkin bread is waiting to be made today. I have over ripe bananas, so what's a girl to do?
I am loving this weather.....and the weekend is supposed to be perfect!!!!

Beautiful pics!! I wanna go to the mall now and get that candle! I'm thrilled Autumn is here too, just wish it didn't feel like Summer. We had perfect Fall weather last week, in the low 70's and dry!! Someone was even burning wood in their fireplace - mmmmmm, another sign of Fall :)

When it gets just the slightest bit cooler out, I switch from floral-scented candles to cinnamon-y and cookie-scented ones. When my husband comes home, he always thinks that I've baked something wonderful! Happy First Day Of Fall!

Hi Elaine,
Your new candle sounds yummy! I would love to smell it, too bad that isn't possible through the computer.:) I love it when we employ a new way of doing something and it is still working a year later. Sounds like a winner.
Your banana bread looks very good!
Hugs, Cindy

banana bread is the first thing I make for fall baking! I have my pantry baking items in the same containers for years...so easy just to pull out.

Ginger Zuck said...

I am thinking about that banana bread for in the morning already! MAN,you're killing me here and I've been trying to be so good. Thank goodness we don't have BB&BY or I'd stay broke! I've got to get one of those candles though! Everything is perfect, Elaine as usual.

I've promised myself a trip to the Country General store tomorrow after the houseworks finished and a new candle is definitely in order. The banana bread sounds wonderful. Pour me a cup of coffee and I'll be right over! Patty

Walmart is suppose to be the place that will carry these! I can't wait!

Leslie said...

I've been looking for those M&Ms ~ Happy Fall!! Your banana bread looks perfect for the start of the season.

The Tablescaper said...

You've got some wonderful autumnal sensory experiences going on there. Can't say I've ever seen those M&Ms before. I've got to look for those.

Great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays.
