A Few Fall Favourites.

A Few Fall Favourites
I've been bookmarking and pinning so many fall inspired diys and recipes lately I thought it was about time I shared a few of my favourites.

1. Beautifully decorated pumpkins, no carving required from A Beautiful Mess.

2. Decorate your fireplace with a pretty felt fall leaf garland from Pam Garrison.

3. Get these printable fall gift wraps in plum or pumpkin from Lia Griffith.

4. Even to a non coffee drinker like me this pumpkin chai latte from Design Love Fest looks delicious. It's the maple whipped cream and clove caramel topping that really sells it.

5. No felt? How about this festive folded paper leaf garland from A Subtle Revelry.

6. Yummy pumpkin ginger snap ice cream sandwiches from Sarah Hearts.

How about you? What autumn inspired projects have you been tempted to try?

Around Here: October.

Loving these bright blue skies.

And golden leaf lined paths in the park.

Wondering what to do with these gold gilding flakes and making a list of future projects.

Reading Modern Art Desserts. I got this fantastic book for my birthday, sweet treats inspired by modern art. Some of the recipes look a little complicated but I think the Castrillo Diaz inspired panna cotta and the Thiebaud chocolate cake seem like a good place to start.

Autumn leaves on my walk this morning. I love this time of year.

Green grass and blue skies from last weekend.

And delicious salted caramel biscuits that I've probably eaten far too many of.

Yesterday.

The Palm House - Sefton Park
It was my birthday yesterday. We had planned to go to the zoo but the weather was bad and we ended up at Ikea instead. We got a couple of new lamp shades, a swivel chair and got to eat delicious meatballs. It was a good day.

The picture above is from Sunday. It's The Palm House at Sefton Park and was processed using Afterlight.

40 reasons to choose happiness.

An ode to the crispy egg.

I'm intrigued to try arm knitting a scarf.

Crazy about these rings and this cuff, not to mention these porcelain gold birds.

These vanilla and cardamom pear hand pies look delicious as do these pumpkin and chocolate ganache macarons.

Dark and beautiful floral art from Simone Truong.

Some fall crafts. Fabric tape pumpkins // pretty paper leaf fall garland // chocolate leaf cupcake toppers.

Loving the fall colour series on Poppytalk, particularly the greys.

A gorgeous new print collection from Will at Bright Bazaar.

I'm dreaming of these soft grey walls.

And you know how much I love dipping things in sugar, especially cinnamon sugar so obviously I'm desperate to try these cinnamon sugar popovers.

Have a lovely weekend everybody.
