Oh. Yes. I. Did.


mix 2

What's ~not~ to love in this autumn mix?

Whoppers.

Mini pretzels.

Peanut butter M&M candies.

Brach's candy corn and sweet candy pumpkins.

Smokehouse almonds.

Perhaps I'll bag and tag this nummy snack and send it off to Dear Daughter and The Roomate who have survived (thank goodness) their first month at college.

Or maybe I'll eat it all by myself and send them the recipe.

Do you have a go-to snack-y type treat you love to make once the temperature starts to dip and the leaves begin to change color?

Crafty Weekend

This weekend I let the truck drive both me and The First Grader out of town toward craft and antique stores.  Not knowing what we'd find (but hoping for Halloween treasures), we explored all of two whopping places: Joann's and the Parkville Antique Mall.  Why only two?  Because they had ~everything~ we wanted:

Once home, the urge to craft hit me like a ton of pumpkins, so out came the circle hole punch, some faux moss, twigs, ribbon, cardstock, paper, and glittery letter stickers:

These little guys are just a smidge taller than a domino- so cute!

What's a holiday without some bunting?
