 For the third year running, I am burning and enjoying  Yankee Candle’s Autumn Wreath . For me, it is the perfect blend of scents that subtly shouts Fall in New England.

 Some know the fall season is upon them when the leaves start turning. For me, it is when our boxes of  Fatwood  form Plow & Hearth arrive at our front door.

 There is just something about pouring our favorite cocktail libations out of these beautiful decanters. Our full lead crystal Chartres decanter and old fashioned glasses are by Vista Alegra.

 When I posted this picture of my cookie cutters inside of the cookie jar I was pleasantly surprised at how many asked where I purchased the jar (and the whale). The whale was a one off from an artist, but the  Anchor Hocking 2 Gallon cookie jar is available here . There is also a 1 gallon size available.

 On day four of our moving in, I set out to find fabric red, white, and blue patriotic Bunting for our new home and fence. I could not be more pleased with the quality of this bunting that is made in the usa.

 During a meal at the  Rangeley Inn , in Rangeley, ME, I loved how the french fries were presented on my husband's meal. It took a burger and fries from ho hum to something a little extra special. I found a bowl from Sur La Table, that looks the same (it could even be the same bowl).

 Playing chess is something my husband and I like to do on a rainy night or when we just want to relax. Having played chess all over the world during our travels, I have to admit, playing with  this glass chess set  was a lot of fun since I am used to using wood, plastic, or metal.

 Taking a break by the band stand after an early morning bike ride. My  white skechers  are used to walking, but I think biking is going to be happening a lot more!

 For two years in a row, I have purchased Yankee candle's autumn wreath candle to burn in my kitchen. It is strong enough to make you think of fall, but not too strong to make you go running out of the room. I will be purchasing it each fall that's for sure, especially since it is a New England brand.

 During a winter visit to the Breakers, one of the mansions in Newport, RI, I was inspired to find out a bit more about cooking with copper pots. A few notes on the benefits of cooking with copper can be found on my blog.

 Whenever we are at our getaway cabin in the mountains of Maine, I look forward to the chilly nights so that I can wear my  Woolrich black and red buffalo check pajama pants  and black flannel top. PS, I am a shorty at 5’2” and these are a good length on me, just breaking on the top of my feet.

 Such a memorable evening. Sitting in leather chairs, by the fire at The Charlotte Inn, in Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard with my husband. The Charlotte Inn is a stunning relais chateaux property and historic home / inn full of antiques and collections from the owners own travels and collections. While supplies last, I was able to find the boot I have, but in black, and another style that is similar.
