#2: Bring Fall Indoors! (Good Scents Give-away!!)


Happy Fall Y’all! This is one of the most beautiful seasons in the Valley and we want you to enjoy every minute of it. This week, we’ll be sharing one idea each day with lots of great give-aways to celebrate!

The (un)Official Penns Valley Fall Bucket List

#1. Go to the Penns Valley Homecoming Parade and Game! (Be sure to enter the Football Package Give-away)

#2: Make your home cozy inside! This community sells a couple of things very well: farm fresh food, tractors, and Americana decor. At this time of year, Americana decor gets the spotlight. Let the beauty of a Penns Valley Fall fill your home.

As the cooler weather moves in, I love to find an Autumn candle and add some warm colors to our mantle. Some of my favorite places to shop are Steiger’s Early American in Centre Hall, Weaver’s Store in Spring Mills, Elk Creek Dry Goods Store in Rebersburg, or Good Scents in Millheim.

This week, I packed the kids up and headed to Good Scents in search of the perfect scent for our Penns Valley Autumn. All of the candles are handmade in Millheim… and they smell delicious. We had a very difficult time selecting amongst these seasonal beauties: Fireside Spice, Autumn Harvest, Applesauce Cake, Grandma’s Kitchen, Colonial Spice, Fresh Picked Pears…

DSC_0014Lids came off and on again as we debated amongst these mouth-watering options: Buttered Rum, Carrot Cake, Banana Nut Bread, and Caramel Apple…

DSC_0015In the end, we opted for Colonial Spice. After all, we are studying Early American History this year, and I bet we’ll retain the details better with this beauty wafting through the house. Right??


Of course, I couldn’t resist this adorable “pumpkins” sign in honor of the Little Pumpkins who were helping me shop…

Now it’s your turn to stop by Good Scents and discover your favorite Fall scent. I’d love to know which one you chose.

But in the meantime though, enjoy this week’s…
