It's been a while...

since I have had a RAK so here we go :) All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me your favorite thing about fall and on Wednesday evening we will pick a random winner for this set of 1" buttons made using some of our favorite scrapping paper.
























Pixie will do the picking so feel free to leave her a comment letting her know how pretty she is, she is not above bribery!

Aww! My daughter Lily and I have some serious Pug Lust going on at our house. I mean, how can you not love that face?! So sweet.

Love the buttons! My current fave thing about fall is this recipe (using apples from the orchard):

Wow, are those ever cute Martha!
I love the leaves in fall, such great fun to take my sisters kids out in them. One year we covered each other in leaves and took pictures, and I mean covered! I also love fall because Canadian Thanksgiving is not far away, being with family, pumpkin pie....
Pixie, you are a total doll! :)

Dear Pixie,
My favorite thing about fall is when my Mom leaves me on the back porch to sun! I have to share my bed with 2 other Pugs, who are not nearly as cute as me (though my Mom might tell you otherwise, don't listen to her!), but when we all cuddle together in the crisp sunny weather, it's heaven! We refuse to come inside until we smell Mom cooking something yummy; then we rush inside hoping for something to fall on the floor. My Mom thinks the colors of fall are nothing short of spectacular, and she loves the warm, soft, yummy sweaters of fall too! She thinks your Mom's layouts about fall are pretty wonderful and inspiring too, especially when they enbabled her to go to Target and spend $16 in the $1 spot! (o: Love, Nellie the Pug in Oregon

Pixie, your mommy makes the cutest little pages of yourself. You are loved and adored all over the scrap world! I bet you love to go out for long walks like I do during the fall. See? We have so much in common *wink*

My favorite thing about this time of the year is seeing the colors of the changing leaves on the hardwoods in the Columbia Gorge, definately an impressive view.

Always gets me in the mood for my favorite holiday season....That would be the entire time from Halloween to New Years!!

Leslie said...

Homemade apple pie made from apples I picked myself! Of course, now that I live in FL, I have to buy them in the gracery store but man! There's nothing like a freshly picked apple.

Very cute buttons!

Nan and B.A.G.S. the pug -aka Aine said...

Dear Pixie (my chi-town BFF) -

The two best things about fall is 1) halloween and 2) dressing up in fall dog outfits! I sometimes think that fall and Hallween were made for us pugs. Because - let's face it? How cute is it when we dress up in either costumes or fall attire? It just screams "We are cute, we are cuddly, we are funny and we are downright fricken adorable! Viva la Pug Revolution!!"

Of course this is so well showcased/documented in your Mommy's BEAUTIFUL layouts about you and your brother. Seriously! Would another pug sista lie to you? NEVER.

I mean - now that we now know each other - we can wear each others clothes and hang out in front of the fire at either my house or your house while our mommy's crop! Or talk.. or photograph us... you know? I think I might have some bandana's that we can dress Mugsy up!

Anyways, please give some pug sista some love so I can add more buttons to my leash. Which btw - Mummy says I need a new one. I dont understand why. The leash is not gnawed all the way through yet? pft.

ps - mummy would like to know where you get your puppia harness. Seems like mine is pulling free at unoportune moments.

HUGS and PUG LOVE! Aine

How cute! My fave Fall thing is definitely hot apple cider! :)

Funky Finds said...

hi pixie! abby & i are a big fan of yours! my favorite thing about fall is Thanksgiving. it's my favorite holiday! i love taking the time to stop & truly spend the day thinking about what all my thankful for. i love decorating & setting the table & helping my mom prepare a big feast for all our family. and of course, pumpkin pie & homemade whipped cream rock!

fat and scrappy said...

I think I prefer the costumed Pixie versus the naked Pixie!

Fall is my favorite time of year... not that I really see it in South Texas but a girl can dream. I love the orange colors and burning the fireplace and crunchy leaves.

Jessica said...

I absolutely love the trees changing colors, and the crisp weather (if it ever gets here...LOL). And Pixie, you cutie, pick me!

Punchbugpug said...

Fall is totally about all our senses. The Leaves, first colored, then kicking through them on the ground, a beautiful good crunchy apple, then maybe apple pie, apple crisp, applesauce, big orange pumpkins...maybe a pumpkin pie, lots of spices and cooler evenings!

Pixis you at the CUTEST!!!

Holly said...

Pixie, you're such a doll! Love all the cute outfits your mom dresses you up in! And, the best thing about fall is the feeling of warming up with a nice cup of hot chocolate or apple cider. Mmmmm...

Vee said...

awww, those are so so cute! :)

Michelle Sanders said...

Ahhh the smell of pumpkin spice and the comfort foods of Thanksgiving.

ScrapFairy said...

I love everything about fall, but I will tell you the one thing I have found I don't like is there is no sun to wake me up in the morning. It has been so hard to get up.
Ok one thing I do love is the turning leaves.

Bekka said...

It might be the cooler weather. Or soup. Or the overwhelming feeling that I should be baking something. Or pretty leaves. Or sweaters.

I just can't make up my mind, but I love fall!!! (And those buttons are so cute!)

Kimi said...

First, ur dog is adorable, we want to get a pu sooo bad.
Second, favorite thing about fall would have to be THANKSIGIVING and all food that goes along with it. ;) I also love the changing leaf colors, but we won't be seeing much of that here in Hawaii, I don't think...

quietly going mad... said...

i love walking as the sun is going down and smelling burnt leaves wearing uggs and scarves and a sweater yum. pixie you are so gorgeous in that picture you make me miss snuggling with my jocko he was a poodle and love taking those walks with me. pick me and maybe a treat will have to come your way too!!

SmilynStef said...

Pixie is cute ... buttons are cute ... falls is cool, crisp and yummy.

Christine said...

The best thing about fall is the colors especially on the road to my parents house - a dirt road in the country so beautiful when it is all dressed in a fiery glow of color. And I can honestly say that Pixie and Mugsy make me want a pug some day (right now I don't think Deli Joe would allow another dog in the house :)

craftyamanda said...

Love those buttons! My favorite thing about fall...Halloween!

chinamomxtwo said...

Hi !! What i love about fall... ? i really love to lay down in the middle of the forest when the wind is blowing, to see the leaves fly behind me... totally crazy, but we i get so much fun !!!

Your Pug is so cuuuuuuuute !!!

Jayne said...

The changing colors in the fall have always been my favorite thing. After moving from New England to Georgia, it seems to less vibrant with so many pine trees on our property. The dogs spend more time outside and I can start my canning. Cute buttons!

Pixie is precious!

Lilo said...

The colors are sooo beautiful and I love the smell (even though one of my kids said it smells like rotten apples;))
Pixie! My dog Laban thinks you are a cutie! =)

Linda said...

I love the smell of autumn in the air. It's like aromatherapy.

BTW, without trying to bribe, Pixie is just absolutely beautific.

Tina said...

pixie, you sweet thing!

hhmm...what I love about fall..so many reasons. first, sweaters. I love my sweaters. second, pumpking and ghost shaped Peeps.

MANDEE said...

my favorite thing about fall is the cooling tempatures and having to get out the sweathsirts to go watch my son play football! I also LOVE the colors... brown, red, yellow all falling from the trees!

PS...Pixie U should be in pictures! you are too adorable!

Samantha said...

My favorite thing about fall is apple cider! Every year we go to the local orchard to pick out our pumpkins (Murphy, too, of course) and get fresh apple cider. There's nothing like it.

Pixie, you are the cutest pug in Illinois, especially in your new dress. You're just a little sweetheart. (I could go on and on if you'll pick me! LOL)

Margie H said...

Helloooo, Pixie! How can anyone resist you!!! xoxoxo

Love fall because the air is crisp and the leaves change into these amazing colors!

Bridget said...

My favorite thing about fall? It has to be FOOTBALL! Fall doesn't arrive in New Orleans until at least December, so I take what I can get. LOL BTW, Pixie is a cutie pie!

Lisa King said...

There is nothing I like more in the fall than a sweet pug dog running through the crunchy, golden leaves, then leaping into the crisp air trying to catch a wisp of smoke from a nearby chimney. Who needs the dog days of summer when you've got the pug days of autumn?! :-)

debbiec said...

gah, she's adorable! seriously! and the buttons are to die for. i *heart* them, and my favorite thing about fall is brand new long sleeve hoodies! pick me pixie! there might be a treat in it for you!

Stephanie Jedlicka said...

Pixie...my love. You are a sweet, sweet girl! Plus...I sent you some awesome treats the other day. hehe ;) Hope you and Mugs are enjoying them!

And I love the smell and feel of fall. The crisp air, the apples, the pumpkins...I love it ALL!

eek said...

Cute buttons!

Chrissy Le said...

Your puppies are adorable!! I hope Pixie picks me!! Got you bookmarked, too cute!

melissa :) said...

my favorite thing about fall is the apple cider... yum and yum!!

p.s. dear pixie, you're pretty much the awesomest thing ever. we could be bff's.

kokopuffs said...

Pixie is rather Pixie-licious!!

my favorite thing about fall? when it rains. because it signals the end of summer and the beginning of warm clothing, fireplaces, and cozy snuggling under the covers as the wind howls outside, or the changing of the colors of the leaves. here in CA we don't seem to have Fall, at least not so much as the New England states.

**melissa lee** said...

My favorite thing about fall....that would have to be the cool, crisp mornings...LOVE THEM!

And such a cutie-pie of a puggy!!

Cicily said...

I love the change in the air, it's not just the chill or the breeze or the lowering of the temperature, it's the people. Everyone's a bit more cheery, like they know fall will make everything delicious.

Inge said...

I'm in love with the colours of autumn. Love having the fireplace on...

Scrappermania said...

I Love the buttons! Pixie is precious!!!

jinxi said...

gosh, hope its not too late.. its still hump day..
My favorite thing about fall is the colors of all the leaves, the crisp air and smells. I think itd be really cute to see a pic of Pixie out running amongst the changing leaves once they fall.. she is such a princess! ;)

Heather aka "Mason Vixen" said...

Hi Martha! I love the buttons, but I love your question even more! I'm such a fall-lovin' girl!
I *heart* fall because it's when my favorite month of the year, October, happens. October is the month in which I met Dominik, the month of my b-day, and the month of my favorite holiday - HALLOWEEN! When fall begins, it means it's almost time to get out all of my awesome Halloween decorations. I get to start wearing my sweaters again and look forward to being cozy with the pugs, curled up on the sofa watching tv.

Katie said...

I LOVE the leaves changing colors!! I can't wait for them to fall so the puppies can play in them!

KhrisW said...

Napping with Andrew on our couch with Hugo. We have this quilt that we've had for over 12 years and it sounds corny but seriously, that's my favorite thing to do while the game is playing. My husband smells so good to me and if he's not around then I'm napping with Hugo and sniffing his fur-drifting off to sleep. Pure heaven to me.

I love pug walks with my three pugs and they try to chase the leaves as they are blowing :)
