May we tempt you with a fall shopping spree? (An AUTUMN Give-away!)



 (mock cover)
What I love about AUTUMN is a chance to really engage the outdoors with my friends and family.  I love summer, but there is something so real about getting things done, tackling DIY projects, and bringing everyone back to the harvest table to celebrate. 
This issue, we asked some of our dearest friends to pull up a chair including Stephanie Nielsen from the NieNie Dialogues, Tricia Foley of Tricia Foley.com, Kim Demmon of Today's Creative Blog, Carol Spinski of Raised in Cotton, Debra Norton of Vintage Paper Parade, Meg Duerksen of Whatever,  Koralee Teichroeb of Blue Bird Notes, and Amy Powers of Inspire Co.  
We would like to invite you to join our celebration of Autumn by entering our "kick-off to AUTUMN" contest. We are giving away not one, but two $250 VISA GIFT CARDS, to help you with your fall shopping. 
How do you win? 

Just help us spread the word about our latest issue of our magazine, AUTUMN with Matthew Mead in one of the following ways:
1. Blog about our giveaway and tell your readers about our AUTUMN issue, sending them our way for a visit to find out more. (Leave the link to your post below and this will earn you two entries!)
0r:
2. If you don't already have our blog button in your sidebar, you can add it and let your readers know you did. Be sure to comment on this post and leave your blog address!
Or:
Don't have a blog? 
1. Simply Tweet about it or share on Facebook (and be sure to let us know you did!)

2. Become a follower of our blog and leave us a comment letting us know what you do to decorate your home for autumn.
 Good luck!
Matthew

I have some stained glasses maple leaves that I hang in the windows, and an autumn "shovel" that decorates the front flower bed, and a few autumn-y knick knacks that go around the living room. This year I also want to make a wreath for the front door.

  23. I am now following your blog through google reader. I am not much of a decorator. I put out a few witches and ghosts at Halloween and turn a pumpkin into a turkey at Thanksgiving. So you can see I really need this magazine for inspiration and of course the money to buy the inspiration. Hope to win. Thanks.

    How do we decorate for fall? In a word, Glassybaby. Beautiful blown glass votives that come in more colours than Crayola! We pop in a tealight and shazam, we have "glow". Simple. Magic. Glow.

  83. Hi - I am following you & 'liked' you on FB. Fall is like crossing the finishing line - done with hot summer heat & now I'm enveloped in cool autumn air- relief. I decorate in a simple way- pumpkins, branches, acorns, leaves in bowls vases hurricane lamps- not overthought just right. Your talent reminds me of Sweet Paul Magazine- as if you were separated at birth- thanks for considering me.

    Fall is my favorite time of year here in southern Wisconsin. The air is cool and the smell is wonderful. Everyone filling their pantry with the fall harvest. It's also the time for me to get out my peach lustre dishes from fire king. I love fire king dishes. I have a set for each season becuase this is how I decorate for each season. Lucky that Wisconsin has four. Thanks for all the tips I have used in my home.

  107. How wonderful! I live in a condo located near our city's lovely James River. A beautiful location! We have lots of vegetation near the river banks and I love to cut off long, leafy branches from the weeds and bushes and trees along the river and place them in one of my many vases, my fav for this being a large white ceramic vase shaped like a tree trunk. It looks so lovely with the tall,wild branches extending high towards the ceiling. Thank you!

    Decorating for fall is a bit different every year and always look forward to new ideas. One staple, and always where I begin, is decorating my German Twig Tree standing in my dining room. Just the nature/look of the tree is perfect for autumn/Halloween!
