Happy Friday! The Halloween countdown has begun. Do you have your costume ready? No? Well here are a few last minute ideas to throw on over any black ensemble. I am in LOVE with this wolf coat from Urban Outfitters, but settled for the cat eared beanie from Zara. Just adding a little striped shirt, bag of money, a little face paint, and an my “green-eyed cat burglar” is complete!
It’s that time again! Pumpkin is invading everything…your coffee, your cornbread (actually real good), and your cookies! I shared my pumpkin snickerdoodle recipe a few weeks back (see it here), and today I am reposting my much requested pumpkin cookie recipe from last year. These are hands down the best cookie (I make), and the tastiest too!
Super easy to whip up, and come out perfect every time!
Heat those ovens up ladies!
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 (or a pinch) ground sea salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup canned pumpkin (the organic canned pumpkin from trader joe’s is my fave!)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Happy Monday…Or shall I say Happy International coffee day! Here is a little fringy d.i.y to start the week. I have been so inspired by these beautiful Moroccan wedding blankets, that I decided to translate it into this fun throw pillow. I of course had to add a little black to the mix.
All it took was one trip to the trim aisle in Hobby Lobby (overwhelming!!) and a striped pillow case from ikea, cheap and easy!
1. cut strips of trim to size
3. with a needle and thread tack the ends of each strip, so they do not unravel
2. layout your pattern
3. start at the bottom, and glue the strips to the pillow cover
4. let glue dry, and add a pillow insert
5. turn pillow upside down, so the fringe falls forward.
