A Fun Fall Round-Up

Now that my scarves and boots are out from their boxes, I'm ready to fully embrace fall in all it's jean-jacket, pumpkin-spice, sock-wearing goodness. I wanted to throw together a little round-up of a bunch of recipes that are perfect for chilly fall nights and DIYs that are great for getting into that fall spirit! 

I feel like I need to add a disclaimer that some of these posts include photos that are just awful. Happily, my photography has gotten much better since I started this blog and that is very apparent when you look back at some past posts. 

Creamy Pumpkin Pie! What else do you need. You can just stop reading here.

Snickerdoodle Cupcakes. These are perfect coupled with a cup of tea and some great TV.

These Chalkboard Speech Bubble Mugs make all hot beverages better. Truth.

Apple Cranberry Pie is a great dessert to take for Thanksgiving or any other family/friend dinner-gathering. A great twist on a traditional apple pie.

These Tile Coasters are so simple to make, you can make a set for every time of year! Black and orange stripes/chevron for Halloween?!

Spiced Hot Apple Cider is one of my go-to warm drinks while it starts getting chilly out.

Applesauce Cupcakes are my serious addiction. I can't even make them anymore because I'll eat the whole batch. Bake at your own risk.

Make your own Heart Teabags (or any shaped teabags) with some loose tea and coffee filters. Perfect for the fall weather or for a fun hostess gift!

Candy Corn Felt Garland is super easy and really cute. 

Happy Fall!

Best of August

August is a bitter-sweet month. As lovely as the the summer has been, I'm excited for the changing of the seasons into fall. Fall is one of my favorite times of year, and I have big plans for the blog during the next month. Here are some of my favorite posts from last month:

With so many photos to frame and tons of wall space to fill up in our new home, it was a busy month for photos. I'm still loving these three different ways to display photos.

A couple trips to thrift stores and one to the flea market means more goodies. T has been racking up quite a few records recently, and we are so happy with our record player purchase this month! 

August featured these two DIYs, one for making paper flowers out of coffee filters and the other spotlighting our black and white striped rug we painted.

And finally, a simple post about list making!

Take on any good projects during August? Love to hear about them! I've got my scarves and boots ready in hand for September!
