Friday Favorites – Week 239 – With Fall and Halloween Recipe Round-Ups

friday favorites

Who doesn’t love a good round up post? I love it when bloggers make us a list of must-see recipes and projects. It is so fun and inspirational. And I also love hosting these kind of posts on my blog.  I have so much fun doing the “research” and I enjoy the opportunity to share with you!  For today’s party, I’m featuring 3 round up posts!  Two are specific to Halloween recipes, while the other is pumpkin recipes…..And I think you are sure to get inspired by them!

Also, I want to take a second today and announce that I’m running a sale in my etsy shop.  If you’re a football fan, I have a lot of my team spirit necklaces, ornaments, and keychains on sale (to include custom orders), and I also have all my cameo pendant necklaces on sale.  It’s a great chance to pre-order for Christmas and avoid the rush, as well as get a good deal!

My Fall Decor

Fall Decor

With Halloween just around the corner (Can you believe it??),  it seemed like a good time to share my fall decor.  For the fall season, I find that a little goes a long way.  By just adding a few items to a buffet table,  fireplace, or front porch area, you can easily give your home a touch of fall.

This year I didn’t actually buy anything new, but I did change things up in the way I decorated from previous years.  Take a look around and let me know what you think. (Also, be sure to take a look at this collection of 15 Fall Subway Art Printables if you’re in need of some cheap decor options.) [Read more…]

Halloween Cereals & Snacks from General Mills

Halloween Cereals and Snacks


When I was growing up, we almost always had Count Chocula at our house.  Now the Count and his friends Franken Berry and Boo-Berry are back in retro, throwback packaging.  You can find them now at your local Target store. And as if the cereals weren’t great enough, there are also snacks featuring your favorite Halloween cereal characters.  You’ll find Franken Berry and Boo-Berry Fruit Roll-ups and Count Chocula treats!

Halloween Fruit Cup

Halloween Fruit Cups


Today I have a super easy treat that’s also healthy, yet festive for the fall season!  This Halloween Fruit Cup is made using the little fruit cups you get from the store.  You could also use fruit from a can, frozen, or even fresh fruit, but the little fruit cups work great for a single serve dessert without any measuring.  It is great for a healthy after school snack, and it is also an easy party treat to prepare.

15 Fall Subway Art Printables

15 Fall Subway Art Printables
I feel like I’m a little late to the party with this post, since everyone started sharing their fall decor a month ago, but I was doing my fall decorating last weekend (decor post still to come), and I decided to go online and get a free printable to frame for my living room.  When I started searching, I was overwhelmed by all the cuteness I saw, so I decided to throw together a post with some of my favorites!

I have to confess, I did recycle the 5 at the bottom from a previous post I did, to get 15 for this post!  The five I shared a couple of years ago were so cute, I thought they were worth a second look, and I like having all of these in one place just for my own convenience, and I’m sure it’s better for you too.

As always, the links where you go to download this great artwork can be found underneath each photo.  Hope you enjoy!
