Oh, No ~Not Another Pumpkin Post!
(I promise it's the last one;)

First of all let me say a big


The calendar might say it's the first day of Fall, but the temps are saying otherwise! It's in the 80's here in Virginia, but that's okay, I'm still going to cozy up my nest so I can usher in the harvest season with open arms!

Now, about that pumpkin post. I promise this will be the last one! I just wanted to share with y'all a cute way to say "Happy Fall" to friends and neighbors. This idea is as "cute as pie," (pun instended;)



Hopefully, you are having better luck at finding pumpkin than I was. If not, this idea isn't going to work for you. After you have made your pumpkin treat don't discard the can, instead rinse it out. *Next, take tape and completely cover the rim so that any jagged edges are covered. We don't want any cut fingers, that's for sure! Now, wrap up your pumpkin goodies and place them inside container. Finish off by attaching ribbon, tag, and embellishments of your choice. What a perfect way to say Happy Fall to those you love!

I'm just now finishing up my Fall decorating so I will be back tomorrow to show a few pictures of my home all dressed up for the season!

Much love,
Susan P.

Oh, and for those of you that asked about the recipe ~ I got it from one of my all-time favorite bloggers ~ Aunt Ruthie at Sugar Pie Farmhouse. If you have never visited you must go, because you are in for a wonderful treat! Go when you have some time, because once you start reading you won't be able to stop! Here's the link to the recipe.

Happy 1st day of fall, Susan! It's my very favorite season. :) I adore that plate that you use to write special messages on. I've looked for one for a couple of years; might just have to go google one. :)
