Counter-productive…

Today I spent more time doing less and accomplished more in the end…

Time spent in thoughtful reflection can bring you to a place that no amount of rushing and running around will ever do…being busy can be counter-productive.

Trick or Treat…

Our neighborhood organizes a Halloween Hayride for all of the kids…If you want to join the festivities you wait at the end of your driveway for the tractors and trailers to come by…60 kids in less than 5 minutes.  No random people ringing the doorbell wearing creepy masks scaring the crap out of the dogs.  I mean really who in their right mind would open the door up for Jason, Freddy or Hannibal?!  photo 1

CUPCAKES…

I have often wondered when did we go crazy for cupcakes?  Personally I have been enjoying cupcakes since my Mom packed that adorable Hostess chocolate cupcake with the signature white squiggle in my lunch box.  But cupcakes are far from being a new treat…Cupcakes have been around since 1796.

Cupcakes became popular in the early 2000’s after Magnolia Bakery in New York was featured in “Sex and the City.”  Thanks to Carrie and Miranda we have been swept up in a cupcake whirlwind for over a decade…Cupcake are everywhere…their are cupcake shoppes, cupcake trucks, cupcake wars, and cupcake wedding cakes .

I love the entire cupcake experience…from walking into the bakery, standing in front of the display case,  imagining each flavor combination, visually devouring each cupcake, thinking of each of my guests and what they might enjoy and of course choosing a couple extras so that there will be leftovers.

Here are a couple of my choices from my last visit to our local cupcake shop…Rise!  Wicked Spice Cupcakes, cinnamon and spice cake brushed with butter, dipped in cinnamon sugar topped with cinnamon buttercream….They were the perfect compliment to our weekly gathering of friends.

Pumpkins…

Truck loads of pumpkins have arrived at the farmers market…and so has Fall if only in the spirit of the season. Hopefully the cooler temperatures will follow…

Craving A Change….

It’s that time of year when the summer heat has finally worn out it’s welcome…the temperatures are only in the 90’s and according to the weatherman we are experiencing a cool front.  Well Mr. Weatherman I am not convinced…but your optimistic attitude has left me craving a change

To decorating for the holidays! Where did you think I was going with that…not on your life.

I would like to share a few ideas that I am planning on scattering around the house this holiday season…first something to snack on…

Click here for the yummy recipe…

My husband picked up a couple of old bird-cages on the side of the road.  I plan to paint them black and I hope they turn half as nice as these, minus the black ravens of course.

Our guests will most likely be greeted by this guy…

Here is the inspiration for my mantle…except I don’t have a mantle but I do have a hearth so use your imagination…
