Hi to all of Casey's devoted readers! I am Rene from the blog Cottage & Vine. Casey invited me over today to share my thoughts on fall so I'm going to share a few of the things that are inspiring me this season.

With each season comes a fresh new seasonal offering of fruits and vegetables. Funny thing is with each new season I am likely to say, "Summer food is my favorite or fall food is my favorite." No matter what, when fall rolls around I've gotta have fresh apples, butternut squash, pumpkin, and all of the other wonderful things fall has to offer. I love to make stews and soups, and it just isn't fall until I make my apple crisp.


Let's move on to clothing shall we? More specifically boots. Holy cow, there are so many amazing boots out there praying for the winning lottery ticket as we speak I could really go crazy. If I could only chose one pair it would be these. Just look at 'em would you. Yums!

When the air cools down it is imparative that every home have a cozy throw blanket. I love to see them flung over the back of a sofa or chair. Or even casually tossed onto an ottoman. However they land is good with me. We are lucky to have a couple of throws that Mom knitted for us that we like to snuggle under—handmade from the heart is the best!


Last but not least, bring on the candles. Lighting a candle while cooking dinner in the evening just feels good. My favorite candles are by Aveda, but for a real splurge these by Diptyque are amazing.

There you have it! Thanks so much to Casey for inviting me over today!

Rene, I second all of your fall favorites, especially apple crisp! I love all of the apple and pumpkin-based dishes that are available this season.

Rene, that throw is amazing! I wan't to curl up in it too! I have to say I asked for those boots for my birthday which is this month and a Frye box was just delivered! Even though they are expensive, being a gift and knowing they will literally last forever makes me feel better.
