Favorite Find

I couldn't believe my luck when I happened upon this lovely set of 6 wooden owl coasters with their own little stand at my local Goodwill store.

Inspired/Dream Job

You can probably tell from the long list to your right that I am big on reading other peoples amazing blogs; one such blogger would be Elsie of A Beautiful Mess.

She has a great blog full of loveliness and inspiration. She also has one of my dream jobs running her own shop, Red Velvet. You can get caught up on the history of Red Velvet here and be inspired by the revamp/reopening here. The shop not only offers amazing home and clothing goods, vintage being the focus, but is part sweetshop too!
I highly recommend checking out the blog for more.

Weekend Plans

I am hoping to sleep in a bit, (though still too early for most) due to my internal clock set on 5:00 during the week I'm doing great to make it to 7:30 or 8:00 am.

Do a bit of Saturday thrifting at some local spots.

Anxiously awaiting a trip to see this incredible movie on Sunday.

Also, hoping to get all of my Thanksgiving cooking plans in order.

Favorite Finds

I absolutely LOVE strolling flea markets, checking out thrift shops and plundering a Goodwill store. I really enjoy the "treasure hunt" even though it does require one to have an open mind, a bit of patience and a willingness to take your time. Some days you leave empty handed; but other times you come across that special something that was just waiting for you to discover it!

I have decide to take some of my best discoveries and feature one a week in a new post series called Favorite Find.

So, this week is a recent discovery from a local charity shop. The various shades of green in this lovely knit throw caught my eye and the herringbone pattern grabbed my attention, but it was the $0.99 price tag that stole my heart.

Belated Halloween Baking

I offer my apologies for this post being extremely belated. This little baking project was done at Halloween and we are almost at Thanksgiving, but since the outcome could be done anytime during Autumn it still counts.
I am a big fan of the cupcake and when I found this post, I decided to give the idea a go for Howloween.

I think think the outcome was a hoot!

Fall Reading

The chill of Fall weather makes me want to cozy up with a good book when I have some free time and these are the books on my current reading list ...

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley
Pomegranate Soup by Marsha Mehran

Fiber = Delicious?

I NEVER would have thought that I would actually become a fan of something boasting fiber, but these little bars are majorly delicious!! They are like a chocolatey, peanut buttery, rice krispie treat with good for you fiber hidden somewhere amongst the goodness and the extra bonus is they're only 90 calories.

So, next time you need a quick snack on the go ... grab one!

This is the best commercial ever ... an adorable baby and an amazing song, the perfect combination!
