Thinking ahead...

Ok, ok. I know it's too early to be thinking of Christmas but...craft show season starts for me next weekend which means holiday shoppers. (Also, I was tagged in my last post and am procrastinating about that, don't worry, I will get there!) So it's not that early...right? I also wanted to share these cute gift tags by Palomas Nest. They come as a set of 4 and are made from wood and porcelain, way nicer than the name written with sharpie marker I use as a "gift tag".

The Broken Plate

I am totally in love with this ring and pendant from The Broken Plate. They are both made from a Diana Fayt plate and are really lovely, Juliet has some other pieces in her shop from this same plate and I love them all. Plus $5.oo of each Diana Fayt pendant sold will go to Art with a Heart, a Baltimore charity who provides interactive, hands-on art activities to disadvantaged families and children, and to people with developmental and physical challenges. Make sure to stop by her Etsy shop and check out all the beautiful things Juliet makes from broken plates!

In the Theme

To go along with yesterdays post about yummy fall cookies, today I am sharing a yummy Pumpkin Spice soap! I have a hand lotion that smells like cinnamon apples and every time I use it a smile just appears on my face. The smell is so comforting and I bet this soap would have the same effect. Pop over to the Soap Store on etsy and grab some up while the leaves are still on the trees! P.S. the Soap Store is from the Pocono Mountains in Pa, which is close to my childhood:)

Flavors of Fall-Pumpkin Ginger Sandwich Cookies

Well, it's happening. The weather is finally cooling off and the leaves are starting to change. I have been craving a trip to the apple orchard to pick apples and sip hot cider...yum. I haven't done that in forever! I love fall food, the crisp apples and squash paired with woodsy spices and red wine. I have been trying to cut back on sugar but I think that if someone put these cookies in front of me I would have to eat them! They look so yummy and fall-like. Whimsey and Spice is one of my favorite shops to drool over. They have great photos and delicious food posted on their blog. You know me...pots and food and I'm a happy camper!
