Do you see this sweet little hand? My little guy is keeping me rather busy these days and although I would like to say that all of the Fall creations for Cranny are complete, they are indeed not. But these photographs will give you a start............

In honor of my 5ooth post, I would like to give away one door sweater. I guess I should say that this little give-away is also in honor of Fall. I love the Fall, don't you? I would say that it is my favorite season of all.

Now getting back to the give-away. I mentioned that I have not completed all of the door sweaters that I plan on making. I also intend to add a mustard and green to the above mix. What you see pictured above are rust, fawn-brown, slate-gray, and gray-tweed. Most of the door sweaters will have an oatmeal colored ruffle on them, but a few will have gray. The door sweaters come in two sizes, 14" and 10". The 14" door sweaters come with a triple-layer ruffle; the 10" door sweaters come with a double-layer ruffle.

The give-away will be open until the evening of September 1, 2010. To enter the give-away, simply tell me, in the comment section, what is your favorite thing( s ) about the Fall season.

( I will be adding pictures of the mustard and green door sweaters once they are complete. Once a winner has been selected, I will contact them for their choice of color and size. )

wishing you a wonderful beginning to the Fall season...........

LOVE IT. well....I was just sensing fall emerging upon us and I instantly fell in love with it all over again. the first colored leaf on the ground, warm wooly sweaters, warm mugs of chai, everything pumpkin flavored, *my birthday*, and so much more. it's my favorite, too. :)

    Hi Sarah. I love your door sweaters and it looks like G baby does too! He is adorable!
    I don't know if I can pick just one favorite thing about fall. I love the crisp, cool air,the beautiful colors, pumpkins, soup for dinner and the start of the holiday season. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.

  3. Congratulations on 500 posts!! LOVE the door sweaters and think one would look beautiful on my front door :) My favorite thing about the fall season. . .I love so many things about it, but probably going to our local farm and picking out beautiful pumpkins would be my favorite.

    I love the crazy, unstructured fun of summer, but Fall is my favorite because life settles down and becomes ordered again. We get to wear our cozy clothes and pick pumpkins and rev up for the holidays. God paints his trees flashy colors for our eyes and a nip in the air for our noses.

    Oh. And the pumpkin pie. That, too.

  6. i do love fall! There's a tie for first place on my list of "favorite things about fall" between Fall Foods and Fall Clothing. BTW, I LOVE the garland you made that Bethany bought for me! Still putting the nursery together, but I'll have to send a pic once it's up.

  8. alright, i have to be honest. when i think of fall i cringe, only because it will be another 9 months until my blessed summer comes around again. however, i would have to say my favorite thing about the fall season is when the weather starts to get a little bite to it and caleb comes in from outside with a big smile on his face and says "what a great day. i just love this weather!" i like fall because it makes my husband happy! :)

    i love your shop sarah! you've got style girl! :) hope you are well...

  16. I NEED that for my front door...too cute...I still have up my July 4th thingy :(. As much as I love summer, sunshine, swimming, and blue skies, I do love the cooling off of Fall and all the anticipating and preparations for the holidays. Love that.

  17. Congrats on 500! How exciting! I just adore everything about fall! It's a feast for all of the senses! I love, love, love the vivid colors, chatting with friends over a bonfire, the smells of the fall scented candles, and pretty much every single thing about the season!

  18. Love the door sweaters! These are the types of things that I like, but could never create myself. :) There are many things to love about Fall. The crisp, cool air. The non-humid, perfectly blue skies. Colorful leaves. The colors of Fall in general. Anything pumpkin. Apple picking. My little guys 1st birthday. :) Fall is my favorite too!

  20. This is adorable.
    I love the fall for many reasons, but last year I became even more smittin with Fall. My husband and I got married in October AND both of our birthdays are in October! So, we have lots of things to celebrate! I love that we are blessed with God's gift of marriage and get to enjoy all the lovely things fall has to offer!!

  21. These are very, very cute, and how in the world can I pick my favorite thing about fall??? Apple cider, taking my little kiddos to pick apples and see the llamas & pumpkins at the apple farm, wearing long-sleeved shirts & cardigans (especially since I'm prego and getting tired of the current maternity clothes! :)), getting my back patio ready for more enjoyable sitting-and-eating-outside-weather, building a fire in the fireplace (or in our case, turning on the logs) when it gets cool enough....I could go on. Definitely my very favorite season, and I'd love one of those wreaths for my first Fall door in my new house :)

  22. Lovely little door sweaters! You are so creative... FALL: ginger cookies, cardigans, cool evenings & babies in jeans :)

  23. I don't know if there is anything I do not love about fall. A "few" of my autumnal favorites: sleeping with the window open and waking up to a chilly morning, the smell of smoke coming from the neighborhood chimneys, homemade chai apple cider, crispy leaves that crunch under my feet, the pervasiveness of the orange colors I love so much, and sitting around bonfires in the backyard with hot pretzel rolls in hand.

  24. fall is my favorite, favorite! and besides the smell of fires, the cool air, and the gorgeous colors.....it has to be all about candy corns and pumpkins!

    don't enter me....because i get one anyway! {wink!}

  25. So creative you are, Sarah! Fall has grown and grown to be my favorite season since moving to Virginia. It means a repreave from the hot and steamy weather (which I'm not a huge fan of), it means sweatshirts & jeans (my favorite combo), and it means my favorite colors displayed inside and out. Fall = cozy!

    I love...the feeling of fresh, new beginnings that come with the fall weather, consuming buckets of candy corn, pumpkin cookies, my birthday...the door sweater is now my newest addition to the fall favorites list. :)

    I love the fall colors, crispness in the air, smell of bonfires, apple orchards and pumpkin patches. What's not to love? (well maybe the fact that I lose my husband to football and harvest ;))

    Very cute door sweaters! Very original!

  29. I love these! The rust one would be such a beautiful way to welcome people to our home.

    My favorite things about fall are the crisp air and moments when the wind blows up leaves and suddenly you want to skip and wear sweaters and ride your bike wearing boots, the moments when you want it to stay cool and crisp forever, just so you can enjoy the warmth of chocolate chip cookies and your family and the smell of coffee and pipe smoke.

  30. These are so pretty and perfect for fall. I love snuggling my baby in warm clothes. Fall is the bext.

  31. cinnamon, hot apple cider and ginger snaps, corn mazes, warm layered clothing and chilly noses, Indian corn and decorative gourds, hay rides, mums, pumpkins, delicious colors that make you want to just slow down and indulge as many senses as possible!

    My favorite thing (after the pumpkin spice latte) would be "romance/magic"in the air. I don't know what it is but there's just something cozy about fall and loved ones and living in the moment. :)
