It's all about the PUMPKINS when decorating for Fall...
We are beginning to see and feel the changes in the air....
If you look closely, you can actually catch the leaves
beginning to drift down and realize the days are getting cooler.....

Even the coffee station is transformed to a festive
vibe for the season with beautiful mugs, napkins
and special touches for a bit of whimsy! 

I fell in love with this woodland pine forest set
showcasing these beautiful scenes.......celebrating the beauty of nature!

These beautiful paper napkins showcase a tumble of pumpkins,
feathers and fall leaves that evoke the vibrant
colors that herald the Autumn season.

A tiny tin candle with the aroma of sweet pumpkin
tinged with the aroma of fall fruit and a hint of woodsmoke.

And, when the coffee corner is all dressed for the season,
I love adding something special to accompany that
cup of's an idea you may want to try!

When is the last time you made one of the Pillsbury Quick Breads?

And, oh yes.....I came across this seasonal blend of
Pumpkin Spice cream cheese......oh honey, honey!!!!

My goodness, this smelled sooooo good while baking in the oven.......

What a lovely afternoon delight......

For all of you who really don't like baking.....
this may be just what you were looking for...
serve this bread up on a beautiful fall platter
and your family will be quite impressed.....

Makes the tummy happy........


  1. New Background here. Ohhhhh yes, I really notice all the aspects of people's "Blog Looks." -smile-

    I like to make my Backgrounds, but have been having trouble finding soft images, for doing so. I am *envious* of this one, and your last one. Would they be fabric swatches, perhaps?

    Have not made a Quick Bread in toooo long! This post is an inspiration. Thank you.

    And of course, all your seasonal decor is so delightful!

    Gentle hugs,

    1. Thank you so much....I simply choose small print patterns for my backgrounds and soften then sometimes with my photo editor.

    2. Thank you, my Dear...

  8. Hi Betsy,
    Love all your fall touches and ideas. I am in LOVE with those dishes. Where did you find them? I am a huge fan of the Pillsbury Quick Breads. They are so delish! My favorite is the Cranberry Orange which I had a really hard time finding in my area last year. I will have to try the Date Nut bread as I haven't yet. Looks so good. Have a great weekend!
