November is such a fun month…not just because it is the month of my birthday, but that is one of the reasons 🙂

I love November because it is the real beginning of Fall. In spite of what the calendar says, I don’t think it’s November until there is a chill in the air every morning. Yesterday, some of my South Carolina friends woke up to SNOW on the ground! Now that is crazy, but oh how I wish I were there. Instead I am enjoying rain and temps in the 40’s.

The leaves are falling fast, the sunsets are more beautiful and almost all the chestnuts have been gathered by my squirrel friends. Today I put away the jack-o-laterns and am enjoying my Fall mantle. And the best part of today? The extra hour of sleep last night!

I got the letters, candles and felt leaves from Grand in Road and all of them were on super sale! They are clearing out their Halloween Haven, but all of these items are perfect for my mantle between now  Christmas.

The Febreze® Holiday Collection is in stores right now and it is a winner! I love the new fresh holiday scents and the clever packaging. I received a Febreze® Holiday Collection in Cozy Vanilla Sugar – and it is a great blend of sweet vanilla smells!

My pack included the items shown below:

The NOTICEables® are perfect plug-ins for out of the way places that need a little touch of freshness. I put one in my guest room and in the guest bathroom. Both are fairly invisible, but leave such a great scent in the air. The room smells fresh as soon as you walk in! The cool thing about the NOTICEables® is that they are dual scented and rotate the scents in the room. The refills I got were cozy vanilla and vanilla bean. And the package even has a scratch and sniff so you can check out the scents before you buy. Great idea Febreze!

The candle is in the Foyer for the nights when company comes to visit, or I have smelly fish for dinner :)! I love how the  candle itself has no words on it and it fits into any home  decor, but this one particularly can be kept out after the Holidays. The glass shape is beautiful and it is fairly heavy. It is less likely to fall over when bumped, which makes it perfect in my foyer – full of activity! I sprayed the air freshener into the Hall Closet and when I opened the door the next day it still smelled so fresh and vanilla-y. I think this scent will be a favorite around my house. It almost smells like cookies are baking!

The Holiday Collection includes several scents this year:

  •  Apple Spice & Delight: The warming scent of fresh-baked apples coated with sweet cinnamon (available only online)
  •  Cozy Vanilla Sugar: Sweet as notes of vanilla that comfort you like a cocoon of blankets
  •  Cranberries and Frost: Rich as ripe cranberries and frost on a white winter’s day
  •  Glistening Alpine: As soothing as a tree-lined mountainside glistening with the scent of pine
  •  Winter Magic & Glow: Crisp as sunshine-lit icicles in fresh, frosty air
  •  Holiday Bloom & Cheer: As cheerful as a chorus of holiday aromas blended with winter blossoms
