It's All About the Pie!

Now, I'm not a pumpkin pie eater and maybe I never will be. But, I was looking at dessert recipes and came across these variations on the traditional pumpkin pie. I thought I would share with all of you, in case your wanting to try out something new this year- you know, jazz things up a bit with your dessert! I have to admit they all sound yummy! I do love pumpkin ice cream, so maybe- just maybe I would enjoy one of these!

What I'm Feeling Like Today

I'm feeling kinda lazy today. The weather here is getting ready to turn much cooler- and I must confess I LOVE it!

I want this worn leather chair and crackling fire to sit by...

and one of these lovely honeycomb throws
I've been meaning to pick up a copy of this book
and this cozy wrap

these comfy slipper boots
and top it all off with this cup of coffee!

Have a great day!

It's Time to Change Out the Candles!

I am all about seasonal scents, especially with candles! A couple of weeks back I was in Anthropology and came across a new line of candles that I absolutely adore... "Tatine". Have you smelled these candles??? They are wonderful. When I got home I looked up the company online and found out it is a small batch artisanal candle company in Chicago. Margo, the owner and one woman show works her booty off to make these lovely candles. What an awesome job she does- from the scent, to the container and packaging- perfection! What is even greater news is that she has three holiday scents that are part of the Holiday Garden and Forest Infusion line. I am on a mission to get one of each "Pine", "Pumpkin" and "Winterberry".
Here is an image of the Pine candle and the packaging... check out Margo's site, and her blog- it's quite inspiring to read of her success!

Have a wonderful day!
