I picked up some dahlias yesterday. One of my favorite flowers - they almost glow.

Cozy Sunday

Vanilla cinnamon black tea and a fresh cider apple donut. My kind of Sunday.

Mirror, mirror

I felt inspired, by fall, halloween and a poison apple to create a treasury. I was thinking more spooky - Grimm not Disney - Snow White.

We finally went through our closet and dressers. We have 2 gigantic bags of clothes to donate, and now my closet doesn't give me an anxiety attack when I open it. So satisfying.

Sweet Holiday

My husband and I went down to New Jersey this holiday weekend to visit friends. Not only did we get to meet their sweet, baby boy, but we indulged in some seriously good local sweets. We really took advantage of what La Rosa's had to offer. The red velvet cupcake (above) was divine. The frosting was cream or cream cheese based and not-too-sweet, and the cake was fluffy and most.

But the other big star was the ice cream cannoli. I did not think it was possible, but I liked them better than regular cannoli. I can't even describe the deliciousness that was the ice cream filling. You'll have to make the trip yourself. It is well worth it, even if you live hours away. It is probably a good thing I have 4 hours separating me from the La Rosa's.

Friday Find: Whoopie!

I have Halloween treats on the brain, and these Halloween Whoopie Pies look divine. You can find them in SinnersSaintsSweets's shop. Everything in the shop looks so good - being sinful can't really be that bad, right?

Spooky Greetings

Halloween is just around the corner, but there is still time to order some spooky postcards. You can purchase these in my shop and spread ghoulish cheer this month.

A seriously delicious sandwich. Peanut butter, celery and raisins. It was in Real Simple recently and I couldn't believe I had never thought of it before. So good.

Ink Pot

I mixed a bunch of ink yesterday. Getting ready to reprint my lace cards in time for the busy holiday season. Keep an eye out, they should be ready in a couple of weeks. Next weekend I'll visiting friends and their new baby boy!

The Nest: Before and After Part 2

You may remembers, part one of our home project, the bathroom. This spring we finished up work on the kitchen. It is very satisfying to see the before (from the home inspection) and the after. I am glad the ripping up of linoleum, tearing down drop ceilings, sheet rocking, mudding, sanding, painting, and counter instillation are all behind us now. We were very grateful and appreciative of all the help our family gave throughout the project, and I am happy that I finally got to display the lovely gift I received a couple of Christmases ago.
