OOOH...what I love about Sept..hmmmmmm I love that the weather cools off and I can get out my sweaters and socks again after the hot summer weather!!

Just Another House Wife said...

What I love about September is rearanging my closet and the kids's to get the wamr clothes out. Also I like that the sun starts to go down a little sooner and the crispy cool morning air. I know more than 1 thing ; )

Denise said...

Oh I love September. To me it is the beginning of the changing to a new season. I love the coolness of the mornings and evenings and the start of the change of color. Always makes me want to put on a pot of cider to warm throughout the day!

Alee said...

Doug and I were just talking about how September is such an amazing month! You are so sweet to do give-aways of your fabulous aprons!

Do you know what my favorite part of September is? The smell of a spicy crisp apple as I take a walk in the crisp morning air!

Debra said...

I agree with Aunt Jenny. I love that the weather here in Nevada cools down. That my sweaters are back in the closet. that I haven't had to run that darn swamp cooler all day..
please enter me in the drawing!

madrekarin said...

What don't I love about September? I think my favorite thing is that you can see the first signs of autumn- leaves beginning to turn, squirrels tucking away acorns, the garden dying back preparing itself for winter, my husband putting up the noisy lawn mower....
Perfect.

BunnyLover said...

What I love about September are the warm days and the cool nights. The sound of the school bus rumbling down the street, the hummingbirds who visit my feeders before making their journey south.

Katmom said...

For me, September means baking pies and leisurely strolling through Holiday craft magazines & books.
My two favorite seasons are Spring & Autumn....
In Autumn, I love wearing my cuddly sweaters & curling up on the Davenport w/a cup of spiced tea, a kitty and a good craft magazine...
Thanx for having this wonderful September Drawing. Hugz!

GardenGoose said...

well.. what I love about September...it is my birthday month...and hubby's birthday month
:0) and ..the weather turns cooler..fall breezes in the air, and I can stay outside longer..oh..and the gulf fritillary butterflies start showing up more in the yard..and the roses start blooming more this time of year in my yard.

wibe said...

I love the cooling down, the brown fringes on our maple tree leaves out front, the change of meals we make here, the gathering up of fruits and veggies before it freezes, putting the quilt and down comforters on the bed, meeting the grand girls at the bus stop from their first day of school with my dd. Yep, September is grand.....

Libbie from MJF said...

Oh, September - I just love that "crispness" that gets into the air overnight. The mornings are WONDERFUL for having a warm drink outside on the porch...

And, Bev, did I mention that your aprons are just INCREDIBLE?!?!?!

Princess Of Pink said...

What I love about September??

I love summer, but September is a beautiful month. The leaves are changing, the pumpkins are everywhere, hopefully the weather stays nice for the whole month, and just the smell of Fall!

BritChickNY said...

Oh, the mornings are just a tad chilly. Feels so good to wake up with the windows open and there is a nip in the air. I love the thought of coming winter evenings when I can sit and sew or knit and not feel guilty because I'm not working in the yard!
Fall....my most favorite time of year!
Angie

Toni Lovelady said...

I love that the weather gives us a small relief from the heat and a hint at what is to come in autumn, my favorite time of year. Also, my husband and I were married in September, three years ago tomorrow!

Leezard said...

I love the crisp weather that generally starts in September. The smell of fall and the beginning of the leaves changing.

Traci said...

I'm from OKLAHOMA...are you kidding? It's FOOTBALL! Ok, now that I answered what any self-respecting person from Oklahoma would answer.....I can give my REAL answer. Just plain ol' sitting on my porch swing reading a good book and drinking a hot cup of coffee....hopefully reclined on wonderful fluffy pillows....as long as my "BUBBA" didn't show his passive aggression and STEAL THEM. What is BUBBA you ask.... http://livingthegoodlife5.blogspot.com/2008/08/passive-aggressive.html I love your aprons...so talented you are...

Moon Starr said...

I love: Cool mornings with the dew glistening on the leaves, the beginnings of gold on the trees. The crisp crunch of juicy apples and the orange pumpkins sleeping in the fields. Oh, Autumn...glorious Autumn how do I love thee........

Maryjane - The Beehive Cottage said...

Oh, I LOVE Autumn because it is close to the holidays and it's pumpkin season!!! I love Halloween and Thanksgiving! To me it is a time to get organized after a busy summer and start my hoilday lists! I love the freshness in the air and the calmness the season brings. Cozy up to a warm fire and watching old movies!

Thanks for another fun drawing Beverly! xo

Love,
Maryjane

papa sue said...

September is my favorite month - it is my birth month, the weather is beginning to change so I can really enjoy my mocha in the cool mornings, and school is starting (and now that I am retired I don't have to worry about making sure that all of those little chickeedees who came to the office are happy - although I really do miss the darlins').

I just love all of your aprons - all so different and each with a personality of it's own.

electricdunce said...

September is when the asters start blooming and the tourists start heading home. I like it when the traffic thins out and the orchards start selling apples. The light is beginning to change too, and that makes everything look beautiful...

I love September it is also my birth month and the time to eat all the wonderful bounty out of the garden.I love to can and get ready for the winter get the wood piled and ready to bring in for nice warm fires.

Jan and Tom's Place said...

Hi Bev...

What an awesome give-away this will be and how I'd love to add to my collection of your aprons!!!

September...the beginning of autumn...my favorite time of the year. Time to get-away to a favorite B&B for a little R&R and of course, antiquing!!!

~Blessings,
Jan

Pam said...

September.....I love sitting on the porch in the evenings- when there is just a hint of coolness in the air; the first high school football game, the first pot of chili simmering on the stove, and decorating my home for fall!

So glad to have found your blog- I look forward to visiting again!
Hugs,
Pam

The Vintage Housewife... said...

Joanne Kennedy said...

I love that school starts back up here in Sept. That means nice quiet days durning the week and the kids go inside earlier at night.

Don't get me wrong, the children don't bother me at all. But they do my dogs and I hate to hear the bark bark bark all day long until the kids go back inside.

I would love to win an apron from your collection. I collect them and can't seem to ever get enough.

I'm going to put a link to your giveaway on my blog for you.

Hugs,
Joanne

Merry said...

What I love about September is the feeling of a "fresh start". I like to do a deep cleaning followed by some re-decorating with my "autumn things", making everything seem fresh and new. (wouldn't I look beautiful doing all that in one of your aprons!) tee-hee!

nashbabe said...

Wow, count me in. I've been invisible but I am still out here.

Trish said...

I love September so much!! I love the cooler, crisp air, the cozy sweatshirts and changing of the leaves. Fall to me smells like new beginnings:)

ranchmama said...

I love the cool mornings and evenings. That I can wear my comfy sweaters and slippers around the house again. I feel like making stew and soups and comfy casseroles. I start craving apple cider and warm tea in the afternoons. The cottonwood trees are starting to have spots of yellow on them, the deer are out in the lower hay meadow and the kids love to see the big boys. I love that it's a lazy time for us here on the ranch. Hubby doesn't have to do as much and gets time to relax and hang out with the kids.

I just love fall!

Lady Dorothy said...

I like rearranging my closets and putting out my autumn decor! I love the fall colors. Around here, we don't have many of those colors outside, so I fill the inside with them!

Joshswife said...

This will be my first REAL fall! I have always lived in areas where we only had two seasons! I get to enjoy all four, and I am looking forward to doing school projects with the colored leaves, as this is our first year homeschooling.

Serena, mom of four, is loving September!

Sarah-Kate* said...

I like September because around here, it is ALWAYS an indian summer! And we can do summer stuff a little longer-- I love summer!

But I REALLY love September because it's my anniversary month! This year will be 4 years to the man of my prayers.

I would LOVE one of your aprons! So sweet!

Claudie said...

Oh so many things I do love about Sept. but mostly bringing out my flannelette P.J.'s and using my crock pot...I know sounds cheesy but that's my fav.
Do Canadians qualify??? OUI??
Love your blog

Queen of Dreamsz said...

Well there are so many reasons for loving September but this year it is most special for me since tomorrow September 3rd my first grandchild (Allison Liberty) will be born!!! I believe that out does every other reason for loving this month :0)

Anne Fannie said...

Hello Bev,
In September I just love all the sunflowers, blackeyed susans and pumkins in my yard! The nights and days start to get cooled off and its time to start thinking about the Holidays!
Love, Ann

Donna @ Party Wishes said...

I love September when I feel that slight chill in the morning air and it makes me throw another blanket on the bed. I love planning my children's Halloween costumes and going apple picking with my Brownie Girl Scout troop. I love cleaning out my closet and planning my fall wardrobe. What a fun post!

Kay said...

I love September because it feels like the beginning of a new year - summer is over, kids are off to school, time to get back on a schedule. And I love the cooler weather!!

Apron Chic said...

I love September because it means Fall is just around the corner. The leaves get ready to change and the world is beautiful again after a long dry summer!

Your aprons are beautiful one of kind works of art! I will add your link to my blog. :)

Back to school is the best part about September ... I LOVE new school supplies! The lists, shopping, the smells, the crowds of excited families. All the anticipation and hope just tingles in the air.

What a terrific prize. I ADORE your aprons!!!

~~Anne said...

What do I love about September?? It's the prelude to Autumn, my favorite season. There's the crispness in the morning air, the leaves are just beginning to change, and it's apple picking time, which means lots of yummy baking to do. It's also the month of our wedding anniversary. 26 years this month!!

What I like about September. Probably the fact that the weather is just a tad bit cooler, but still warm enough to enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

val said...

September is apple picking season and I like to visit orchards with the kids!

Gombojav Tribe said...

September is like a second New Year. In January everyone is making resolutions and wearing new clothes received at Christmas. There is a sense of optimism and new beginnings.

The same thing happens in September. We get organized for a new year of homeschooling, new programs and functions at church, new clothes bought at back-to-school sales. There's just nothing like freshly sharpened new pencils and boxes of crayons that haven't been used yet. There's a sense of optimism and expectancy in the air. Somehow you know that you won't be disappointed in September like you were in January--when things were rainy and dreary. Everything is crisp and new.

And the apple pie doesn't hurt the mood either.

I love September because it's the start of the Fall seasons it is when the leaves are turning colors and the air is cool and crisp and every thing just smells so good.

Holly said...

KKJD1 said...

September is when I pull out all my fun fall decor it doesnt help cool the weather here in Ga. but just seeing it help me to know it wont be to long before it will cool. Its also a great time to ride around and see what kind of fall creatures pop up in yards. Blessings, karen

leslilli said...

i love the warm days and the cooler nights, the crisp air and the end of season veggie soup, hot tea, and cinnamon sugar donuts. i love all the full canning jar filling the shelves and the potato and onin bins full to the brim. i love the sweaters and the long pants, the socks and shoes. september is when i start to crochet again, and make soap. the garden is plowed under and we are getting it ready for the winter.

Deb said...

I LOVE September - the start of my favourite season, cool nights, warm sweaters, leaves changing colours ...I love it all!!

kristib said...

September means leaves changing colors and the nights cooling off. I love the feel of fall in the air!

Paige said...

Well, September is the month of manly birthdays. My Father, Brother, Brother in Law and Husband all have birthdays in the first 12 days of September. How weird is it that both my sister and I married guys with the same astroligical sign as our dad? And our hubbies birthdays are just a day apart! September is the time to go for evening walks, the time for fall cleaning and the time for cozy books and hot tea in the evening. September is a very good, most treasured month.

Suzie Button said...

What I love about September is that it cools off here in TX, and I love to see all the kids going back to school and it's the break before all of the hectic holidays hit.

Dawning Dreams said...

I love it because my Morning Glories begin to boom. They are so beautiful!

Aunt Pitty Pat's said...

Kath said...

Apples, apples and more apples!!! :~) The fresh apples ready to eat, jump in a pie or be put up for the winter is one of my very favorite parts of September. The cooler weather and chilly mornings are also quite nice.

Blessings,
Kath

txbobcat74 said...

I look at September as the beginning of the New Year, rather than January. School is starting, weather is changing, even changing of our wardrobes from hot to cooler days ahead. I love to have a good clean sweep of the house to set the season off right. It also mean pumpkins, cinnamon and fresh, clean air, so I can open up the windows again. YEE HAW!!!

Mona said...

What I love about September...hmmm...
football and Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
