A little taste of "heaven"

Another one of my fav's during the fall...Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte! Mmm...mucho grande (or in this case VENTI). There is nothing better on a cool, autumn day!

Signs of Fall

I figured that I better get this posted before the snow starts flying! I tried a few weeks ago but it was taking forever for the pictures to post and I gave up. A good friend of mine shared a trick (post 1 pic. at a time), so I tried again and it worked! Anyhow...FALL is one of my favorite seasons of the year and here are some reasons why:

I love the colors of the trees - this is right outside my front door...

I love anything pumpkin! I was grocery shopping and saw that Betty Crocker had a pumpkin cookie mix, so I had to try it! It is the best cookie mix I have ever tried! Of course the gob of cream cheese frosting on top makes it even better. It was well worth giving up my $ in the office weight loss contest. Dylan, my youngest helped decorate the tops of the cookies and had fun with that.
I love to decorate for fall. I think I even like it better than decorating for the Christmas holidays (not so overwhelming). Anyhow, I found this cute pumpkin at Joann's a few years back and love to display it during this time of year.

Throughout the seasons, I love to change the decor on my buffet. This was obviously from Halloween, but now I have taken the pumpkins away and added the pumpkin from the picture above.
Finally, I also love to change this tiered basket out with the seasons. I just love the garland with the little pumpkins on it.

Hopefully this inspires you to share your love of your favorite holiday season. Enjoy.

Olivia Card

Wow, hard to believe it's November 1st already! I had some fall/Halloween pictures to post, but for some reason it's not letting me post multiple pix. right now, so I will just post the one for now. Here is a card I created using the Close to my Heart Olivia paper packet. I used one of the new colors (Smoothie) for the card base. I also used an Olivia sticker for the main focus. In the lower right I used our new Mocha collection of adhesive pearls. This card was real quick and easy. Enjoy.
