AUTUMN BLESSINGS AND GOOD HOUSEKEEPING


The month of October will always be my favorite!
 It's the beginning of the holidays and the season to reflect and 
be thankful for all of our blessings! 
Making your home feel special and reflect these 
special moments need not be a period of stress. 
Gather inspiration for your holiday home! 


Simplicity


A Touch of Elegance


Embellished Styling using one of my Joan Rivers Brooches


The beautiful whimsy of Susan Branch


Feeling the warmth of sun puddles


Remembering family



Falling in love with books that reflect the season


Waking to the aroma of a homemade breakfast, with woodsmoke in the winds



The baking of cookies for Halloween night



The joy of Autumn baking


Goblins, ghosts and ghoulies everywhere


Mmmmmm.....buttermilk cupcakes with buttercream frosting......


Tis the season...

TO WOW
TO SHARE A MOMENT
TO CELEBRATE WITH FOOD
TO CARRY ON TRADITIONS
TO BRING US TOGETHER
TO SHARE WITH FAMILY
TO SHOW OUR LOVE

  1. October is my favorite too, partly because it's my birthday month, and partly for the reasons you stated. It does begin the holidays! The changing of the leaves and cooling weather always makes me celebrate!
