10 Festive Fall Kitchen Finds For You--kind of a tongue twister, right?
Anyway, this post was born from fall weather blowing into Maine this last week of August.
Wednesday was the the coldest night we've had since last May--48 degrees overnight.
So, it is in the spirit of candy corn, pumpkin spice everything, brilliant leaves and lots of wool sweaters that I bring you ideas to sweep fall into your kitchen (even if your kitchen is still hot as Hades).
Speaking of candy corn, I'm working on a candy corn cookie recipe so be sure to check back for that on Monday.

I'm writing this wrapped up in a wool cape and I'm starting to fear for the dahlias I planted a bit late in the season.
First things first, I recommend fall themed sprinkles because you might want to bake and if you bake, you want your cookies and brownies to look festive, no?
Last year, I didn't need to plant sunflowers, we had volunteers that sprang up all by themselves.
But, this year, we used black landscape fabric in the garden, which cut down our weeding work by 90 percent and kept the plants from struggling so much in the drought BUT, it kept volunteer sunflowers from sprouting so there's that.
Back to our fall kitchen shopping.
You'll notice a theme here, these are all things that will make your kitchen smell good or perk you up or make you feel warm inside.
Tiny, white pumpkins are de rigueur for your fall kitchen.
When they show up at my small town grocery store, usually around Labor Day every year, I buy several and line them along my kitchen windows.
It makes me feel FANCY! And as if I could do fancy home decor things, which I really can't and truly am not interested in.
But sometimes, I would like to have one of those homes you know. Where everything is just so?
You can get these personalized little white pumpkins on Etsy.
You could also grow your own tiny, white pumpkins for next year so you don't have to deal with people like me clearing out the produce bins of them.
I bought this tin of cinnamon tea at one of my local shops. I snapped it up back in July but I've been waiting for a nice cool day to steep a cup.
I'll drink cinnamon tea all year round but cinnamon really screams fall, at least to me.
Speaking of tea, maybe you need fall themed cups to sip from.
This fun orange mug would be perfect for busy kitchens because it's made of galvanized steel.
You know what doesn't break when your kid drops them on the floor?
Full disclosure: I'm not a fan of pumpkin spice lattes--they're too milky for me. But I do love Starbucks' Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew and of course, the pumpkin spice itself.
You can never have too many mugs. At least, I can never have too many mugs.
My better half is always leaving our mugs at work or in his vehicle or in his studio and I don't realize all the mugs are MIA until it's 6:30 a.m. and I can't find a mug to pour my dark roast into.
Can you relate?
So, a KitchenAid Stand Mixer in lovely and currently popular tangerine made the list because, a stand mixer is helpful for holiday baking.
Also, if you're at all interested in getting one, don't tarry.
My local kitchen supply store has informed customers they won't be getting any more KitchenAid shipments until 2021!!!
Fall for me is the start of the sensory season.
Summer is lovely but other than sea salt, garden tomatoes and freshly mown lawns, the season isn't really rich with scent.
But, fall, oh fall is all about pumpkin pies baking in the oven, spices simmering on the stove, fresh candles.
Have you ever had a NEST candle?
They are soooo fragrant and long-lasting.
I found one in Pumpkin Chai.
I also like Yankee Candles and I found one in cinnamon stick to match the tea!
I also have these Buffalo Check Plaid oven mitts in my cart.
Do you ever feel like you go through oven mitts like paper towels?
It seems like no matter how much I spend on oven mitts, they last a couple months.
Well it was fun shopping with you, what do you need for your fall kitchen?
