A Little Fall This and That...

There's so many things I'm loving for fall right now, that I thought I'd have a little "this and that" post to share them with you!   
I recently added a little something to the hutch in our sunporch...a couple of wonderful owl prints!  They were shared by Angie over at Knick of Time.  She is always sharing wonderful printables 
and these are no exception! 



My home is smelling wonderful these days! I use a candle warmer lamp, and have been enjoying spice scents, and this wonderful Vanilla Cupcake Yankee Candle, that I won in an instagram giveaway from oh-so-creative Debbie, from DebbieDoo's.  Smells like I've been baking all day...and it gives such a lovely glow, too.

By the way...if you are on Instagram,  I'd love to have you stop by my instagram... 
 I enjoy sharing photos from everyday life that I don't post here.


I've been enjoying a course I am taking right now, too.  It's called The Art Of Home over at Jeanne Oliver Designs.  It's a four week, do-at-your-own-pace class about making a home and modern simple living.   I was lucky enough to win the course in a giveaway from kind Alice over at  Thoughts From Alice. I enjoy the courses from Jeanne and friends, and will soon be starting a Creative Hand Lettering course there, too!


I don't share a lot of recipes on the blog, but a couple of years ago, I shared one for Pumpkin Custard.  This is one of our family favorites and has replaced pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving.  If you haven't tried it...it is oh-so-good!


A big thank you to Angie, Debbie, Jeanne, and Alice.  
There is so much creativity and generosity out in blogland!

Until next time...

  6. So I'm having my coffee with you this morning. I feel cheated because I don't have any pumpkin custard and almost hate to admit I don't know how a candle warmer works. I mean I know how it works, but it can be used on regular candles instead of lighting them with the wick?

  7. Hi Linda- Finally back to visiting here and blogging again! Sounds like Fall has settled in at your house. I am digging out fall things this afternoon. It has been a crazy time around here. Love Yankee Candle and I always burn Home Sweet Home this time of year- it, too, smells like you are baking. Hope you have a great day- xo Diana

  10. The owl prints are so pretty and a lovely addition to the fall decor in your house. I've heard a lot about Jeanne Oliver...you'll have to let us know how you liked the class and what you did and learned. Your pumpkin custard looks SO good - I love creamy desserts like that! I have it pinned so I can remember to make it this fall. I don't have any custard or ramekin dishes though (and I don't want to buy any since I rarely make this kind of dessert). I wonder if I could put the entire recipe in one big baking dish instead?

  12. Oooh, that pumpkin custard looks sooooo good, Linda! I'm going to click on the link and get the recipe.

    I just got a warmer a few months ago at Yankee Candle but I need to replace all my Summer beach scents with some Fall ones. I guess I'm heading to the outlet or the mall this weekend!
