November giveaway



In my last giveaway I mentioned that I'd be having more.  Well, October came and went, so now it looks like I'm saying hello to November with a calendar giveaway! 

One winner will receive the full 12-month calendar and a second winner will receive the tear-away calendar.  Both are letterpress printed and the imagery is inspired by vintage china patterns. To enter, please leave a comment telling us all what you your favorite part of fall is (mine is that I have an excuse to make and eat soup!). To double your chances, post about this giveaway on your blog and leave another comment with a link to the post and I'll make sure you're entered into the drawing a second time! The contest will end on Monday, November 9th at midnight (EST) and I'll announce the winner on Tuesday, November 10th.

As an added bonus for reading my blog I’ll send an extra greeting card with any shop order if you enter the code “hello fall” in the checkout section (valid until November 20).

My favourite part of fall (or autumn as we call it) would have to be the beautiful colours of the changing leaves.

Anna said...

Pumpkin baked goods! Pumpkin bread, pumpkin bars, pumpkin rolls, pumpkin cheesecake - I Love them all, and even though I could make them any time of year with canned pumpkin - it's a fall kinda thing!

Phydeaux Designs said...

These are so beautiful! I saw your giveaway on Poppytalk Handmade Artists. I love everything about Fall - I long for Autumn all year round! I think my favorite thing might be bundling up. I love the chilly weather! Thanks so much - Brenda (brenda at phydeauxdesigns.com)

Oh you're too kind, Rachael! Where to start? Fresh nuts, apples, the first clementines from Spain, the sweet smell of leaves on the ground, mushrooms popping up like little hobgoblin homes...the last butterfly.

My favourite part of fall is wearing scarves! Love them :-)

accordingtojane said...

My favourite bit about fall (another autumn-sayer over here, really...) is cycling through big piles of crunchy leaves :)

Addie said...

My favourite part of fall is the weather, i love this in between time where its cool yet not overly cold, and warm breezes blow leaves everywhere.

My favorite part of fall has to be the colors. Some days as I drive to work i am in total awe of the colors and how they change almost every day. I am so memorized by the colors I forget where I am.

Alyssa said...

I was introduced to your blog via the wonderful site, Poppytalk. What lovely paper things you make, and I really love your calendar wall. That would save me all the decision-making I do each year when I find a new calendar I like!

My favorite thing(s) about fall: knitwear, the smell of the air, winter squashes and my lovely daughter's birthday.

jennifer said...

hmm, apples, pumpkins, cinnamon, warm days, cool nights, wearing sweaters and sandals together . . .

Violet Bella said...

i love sooo much about fall, its hard to pin down. i love the inspiration it gives me to take photographs, seeing all the leaves on the ground, the chill in the air, the way the light hits the top of the dead summer grass. oh man, i love it all. the smell in the air, and drinking hot chocolate with my husband!!!

Beth said...

I love letterpress, and your calendars are beautiful! My favorite part of fall is probably cliché: the beautiful multi-colored leaves. There's so much beauty to admire this time of year!

I came via poppytalk, too. :)

pippirose said...

I love autumn because...the colours of nature are so beautiful. I love walking and crunching leaves underfoot. I love seeing the squirrels and chippers being so busy.
It's my favourite season.

Hey Rachael,
I read about your giveaway on Poppytalk. The calendars are just stunning! I also saw a mention of your work in Metropolitan, and I'm saving two copies for you when we meet at the second storie market in just a couple of weeks! Congratulations!
oh, and my favorite part of autumn is the smell in the air, as well as the extra perkiness in my dog as we go for a walk in the leaves. He loves the cooler weather and I enjoy the extra bounce in his step and the way he sweeps the sweet air with his nose, trolling for something good.

Farmer Jo said...

Your calendars are so beautiful! The way the air smells in Fall is probably my favorite thing. Or perfect sunny, crisp days for long hikes.

sfer said...

My favourite part about autumn is that it feels so good again to have a warm cup of tea with some cookies... Especially when it's raining outside :-)

A.Hope said...

YAY!! I have been in awe of this beautiful calendar since you posted about it before it was done! I've been saving up my "invest in other artists" budget to buy things like this :)

Happy fall! What I adore most about autumn is how bright and vibrant color seems to make its way all around the outdoors because of falling and blowing leaves. I also love wearing and accessorizing shades or brown/orange/yellow.

Ave said...

My favorite part of fall is RAIN. I love when it rains :)

My favorite part of fall is the changing colors of the leaves . Like when they change to red , orange , and yellow . It's very beautiful to see and I like to see the squirrels in the parks and the different animals that come with different seasons .

the best part of fall is the weather! I love being able to sit outside without the sweating heat of summer and yet it is pleasant enough to not wear a jacket.

Fall...

Crisp air, chimneys a smokin', curling up on the couch with a curled up dog, pea soupy mornings, mustard yellow leather jacket, squash galore, french onion soup, curling (the sport - yes I'm a curler), twinkly lights, late night pints...these are the things I love about fall.

April said...

my favorite part about fall is pulling out all the sweaters from storage

helen07 said...

Dark nights with the fire on full , a glass of wine and a good book!

Chantel I. said...

Fall is by far my favourite season. I love the colours and the crisp air. I love to hear leaves crunching under my feet and to eat warm stew.
Your calendars are beautiful and I'd be most pleased to win one.

Christine Edwards said...

Wow, fantastic calendars!. My favorite part of fall is the leaves changing color. And usually the coolness in the air, but since our summer was so cool, it hasn't been that much of a change. Thanks for the giveaway.

christine said...

My favorite part of fall is family coming together (in my case, from very far and wide). My second favorite is snuggling up in warm clothes!

Jim said...

Seeing the low afternoon sun lazily peek between the trees and through the window of my office.

Deb - Two Cheeky Monkeys said...

Thanks for holding such a beautiful giveaway! My favourite part of fall (we call it Autumn in Australia) is the relief we get from our hot, hot summer. And also collecting beautiful autumn leaves with my kids for crafting.

Mindi Clark said...

Sweaters, scarfs, seeing my breath in the cold air, building a fire and cuddling up with my hubby.

Oh, your calendars look lovely!

About fall, I love the bright colors and the way air smells so fresh. But for now, we already have the winter here in Finland, it is snowing heavily. I love it too!

Carmenesque said...

What I love about autumn is the change of nature, the wonderful colors of orange, yellow, brown and green. And all can change in one day. Brilliant!

Sheba said...

I love when the cooler weather rolls in. I get to pull out my sweaters, which I love, and make hot chocolate!

Thanks for the opportunity!

lanky said...

My favorite part of Autumn has to be the sound of the crisp leaves under my feet.

electropositive said...

you know I want one of your calendars.

my favorite part of fall is the way the air smells. leaf mold and icy snow, mmm.

mim said...

my favorite part of fall is how half the time it's beautiful out, the smells of leaves and apples and the golden sunlight feel fresh and peaceful--and half the time it's cold and/or drizzly out, which means cozying up inside with hot chocolate/tea/soup and wood fires and blankets...

Janette said...

My favorite part is how blue the sky gets on a clear fall day. It's so beautiful against the changing leaves.

The best thing about fall is apple cider! What a beautiful calendar!

Anne J said...

My favorite part of fall is seeing the beautiful colors of the the leaves. My least favorite part is raking up the leaves after they fall, and that is what I should be doing today.

Bridget said...

The clothes, the crisp air, the chance of snow...it's all great!

Mel said...

Fall is a welcome reprieve from the hot/humid Florida Summer

bmolavi said...

the weather! Houston is super hot and humid in the summer, so the weather we've been having this days is just awesome!

Shannon D. said...

It might be too late to enter, but I will anyway. :)

My favourite part about fall is the visible change of the seasons. Back home it goes from warmer to cooler back to warmer without any real visual change, but here it's really a spectacular change of colour!
