Friday Fives!!!

I do love Friday Fives...for some reason, I get more comments on Fridays, so I guess you like them, too!! 
I hope you have a great weekend planned.....even though it is supposed to get warmer than it's been, having had a week of cooler days has been SO refreshing, and gave me a resurgence of hope that summer will not last forever!! I do look forward to getting out all my fall things to begin decorating with.  I see so many have already begun, but I haven't had time this week, and knowing that it's just not quite fall here yet, has caused  me to hold off......anyway, enjoy your weekend, whatever you are doing and enjoy the Friday Fives!!!

1. Do you feel fall in the air at your house??

2. Do you feel like your decorating preferences in color and style have changed over the last ten years?

3.  What is your favorite fall scent that you enjoy in your home?? Do you use candles, reeds, sprays or how do you add scent to your world?

4.  What is your favorite thing about fall?? More than ONE?

5.  Are you excited that FOOTBALL is back???

Enjoy your day!

Hi Suzanne


1. Do you feel fall in the air at your house??
Until this past week I would have said yes but we have had a warm streak and everyday has been at least 100 degrees

2. Do you feel like your decorating preferences in color and style have changed over the last ten years?
My taste is always changing. As a decorator I love the change in style and color but I remain overall traditional as my favorite design style

3. What is your favorite fall scent that you enjoy in your home?? Do you use candles, reeds, sprays or how do you add scent to your world? THis time of year my favorite is Yankee spiced Pumpkin. I love the home to smell good so I always have scentsy pots or reed diffusers everywhere

4. What is your favorite thing about fall?? More than ONE? I love the hot days and cooler nights and the changing colors

5. Are you excited that FOOTBALL is back???
Could take it or leave it

my answers!!!

1. We had a few cool (awesome days) and it got hot again. We are so hot and dry in TX that it was such a relief, and gave us hope. I long for more of the same nice cool days, so hopefully it won't be long!!

2. Oh, yes, my taste has definitely changed. Like you, I am always changing things. Now I find myself liking a calmer, cooler palette.

3. I do love apple and pumpkin scents, but not a lot of cinnamon! I just ordered a Reed from a friend's fundraiser that is the Spiced Pumpkin... I also like Spiced Pear.

4.Fav. thing....COOL days, the smells, the band playing, the breeze, making chili and soups....baking. I love fall!

5.No not really excited about football......like you, I can pretty much leave it. :D

1.Do you feel fall in the air at your house??
Starting to feel it, nights are getting very cool although the days are still in the 80's.

2. Do you feel like your decorating preferences in color and style have changed over the last ten years?

Not so much in the last 10, but certainly a lot in the last 20.

3. What is your favorite fall scent that you enjoy in your home?? Do you use candles, reeds, sprays or how do you add scent to your world?

Candles here, I love the scent of fall in cinnamon, apples, etc.

4. What is your favorite thing about fall?? More than ONE?

Going to the cider mill on Saturday morning to get cider and donuts before we head to Lansing for a football game and looking at the beautiful turning of the leaves on the way.

5. Are you excited that FOOTBALL is back???

Sure, love it all.

1, Yep... but just a nip of it early in the mornings. I am waiting for a bigger blast. Can hardly wait.

2. Funny you should ask. I have been thinking about that very thing. I don't think my preferences have changed as much as I have finally stopped CHANGING them to suit the trends. I'm stuck with some old trends that I would like out of my house (colors, etc.)

3. Pumpkin pie spices and burning leaves. (You don't smell the second one much around here though. Burning piney sticks just don't smell the same. )

4. The feeling in the air, the colors, the smells, oh you name it.

5. No. That would be my LEAST favorite thing about fall. (Is that blasphemy in Texas? I hope not. It is here...)

1. It's been cooler this week and it's kind of overcast today. It looks more like fall outside, but not so much in my house yet.

2. Hmmm. I would say it's changed some. I still like the same colors. I love the industrial country look though, but I'd hate to start all over again.

3. I use candles, reeds and sprays, but mostly candles. I really want a Scentsy warmer this year. I LOVE pumpkin spice, harvest spice, anything with cloves, etc. YUM! I also like Cinammon Roll and Coffee scents. MMMM!

4. Favorite thing about fall??? Um, everything! I love the cooler weather, my jeans and boots, sweaters and scarves, all the fall cooking and baking. I love it all.

5. Fooball - YES! It's my favorite sport. It's the ONLY sport I watch on TV, although I could do without the football commentary on ESPN. I want to watch the game, not people talking about the game. And might I add, Go Cowboys and Wooooo Pig Soooie!!

Have a great weekend, Suzanne!!

1. It's been unseasonably warm here in Oregon. High today was 95°F! Of course by Wednesday, it'll be down to 75°F so I still have hope!

2. Definitely. I've painted my house twice in the past 7 years and am itching to do it again. Not to mention furniture styles and colors and everything else.

3. I don't burn any candles but I make some pumpkin spice cookies which is much better since I can EAT them!

4. Fall clothing!

5. I don't really watch sports.

. Do you feel fall in the air at your house?? Only if the A/C is turned down low enough ;^)

2. Do you feel like your decorating preferences in color and style have changed over the last ten years? Not too much...I may be a tich more traditional and less crafty.

3. What is your favorite fall scent that you enjoy in your home?? Do you use candles, reeds, sprays or how do you add scent to your world? My favorite is no longer available :^( "Hearth" by Crabtree and Evelyn. I have not found anything to replace it, so I am looking forward to using "Noel" a bit closer to Christmas

4. What is your favorite thing about fall?? More than ONE? The hunting and gathering of natural materials to use for decorations.

5. Are you excited that FOOTBALL is back??? I don't think I could stretch it to "excited", but I do enjoy a good half time show if the band is good....none of this modern trash they put on TV.
