Because I Love You, and Fall!

Why am I showing you a picture of an empty basket?

Because it’s about to be stuffed full of goodies for my very first Giveaway!!  But I don’t want to ruin the surprise by showing you what’s going in it quite yet ;)

You know how much I love Fall, and I couldn’t think of a better way than to celebrate with all of you!

I’m still working out all of the details – like how I’m going to accept entries or decide the winner – but get ready, it’s coming soon.

Be sure to check back all next week so you don’t miss it!

Want a chance to guess what’s going to be in the basket?  There are more picture hints on my Facebook page.

Until then, I leave you with this lovely Fall poem:

Fall falls

Red, orange, yellow
and brown.
The flight of multicolored leaves
floating softly to the ground.

Fall falls
and it does so beautifully now.
Flying by in a
whisper, a whirling and a wistful whistling sound.

    • Isn’t it? It spoke to me the first time I read it.

      I love the suggestions! I think I might be too intimidated to send something like wine in the mail though, in case it broke and spilled all over everything!

    • I will be sure to post more information next week when I get the giveaway up and running – I was just so excited after shopping for the goodies I couldn’t wait to share a little tid-bit with you all as well! :) Plus, I think it adds to the fun a little bit, not knowing what all is in it. There are some hints on my facebook page though if you want a chance to guess!

      As far as why…Mostly just for fun! I love fall, and thought it would be a fun way to share something I enjoy with the bloggers who have become like friends to me! Also, It’s just a good way to connect and get to know each other better :)

  1. Fall: definitely my favorite season! All the bugs die, the leaves turn, the air cools… nothing beats it! (I don’t do Facebook, so I hope you won’t forget your WordPress-only friends!)

    • It really is kind of a magical time!!

      And don’t worry, if you don’t have a facebook, you’ll still be able to enter (I don’t think I’m going to have a FB component to the giveaway). There will just be some extra pictures there, where you can see some “hints” of the basket, and things like that :)

      • Well, I do have a FB account, but it’s only there so old friends from my past can find me if seeking me. (It’s paid off, a few from high school and college days have found me there.) But I never spend any time there or use it to connect with others. It’s not a lack of wheat there so much as an over abundance of chaff. The “signal/noise” ratio just drives me batty.

      • I totally understand. I can certainly be a little crazy. I ended up getting rid of my personal FB account and setting one up solely for the purpose of managing the fb pages for my writing – and I’m only in contact with family/family friends on it. It’s oddly relieving!

      • It’s not that there isn’t signal on Facebook… it’s the the noise level is so very high. Terrible signal/noise ratio to my mind, and that finally drove me away. Those I know that use it usefully and productively use it like you do: as a way to keep in touch with family/friends. I don’t have much family, and I keep my friendships private, so FB doesn’t have that utility for me.
