One of my favorite purchases lately has been a can of copper spray paint. It is such a fun color and I thought it would be neat to add a modern look to some fall items. Continue reading
I love the way a home smells when someone (not me) is cooking, especially cinnamon-ny baked goods.
The only problem with this is I don’t have the time or desire to bake every day, which is why I love this way to make my home smell like I do. Continue reading
Fall is my favorite time of year but it always goes by too quickly. Since there would never be enough time to do all of the fall projects that I would like to, I thought I’d share what others have done. Continue reading
I was at a work event recently and someone brought donut hole acorn balls that looked something like this. (This image is credited to Evi-Enjoying-Life from Pinterest)
I thought they were so cute! I had never seen them before. My coworker told me it was just a donut hole, Nutella spread over the top, nuts or sprinkles and then a pretzel stick for the stem.
Unfortunately for my family, whenever I find a yummy, fun recipe, I always find a way to suck the fun right out of it. I figure they will thank me some day (or not) when they learn for themselves that being healthy IS the fun part. But for now, they need to eat what I serve.
My version of the acorn is a pumpkin bread ball with almond butter and granola. A stick of apple will be the stem.
I just used a pumpkin bread mix.
If you want to get crazy, you can add ground flax or chia seeds to your bread batter before baking.
Then I used almond butter and a pumpkin granola mix. I sliced an apple into sticks.
If you have a cake pop pan, they are the best for making ball shapes.
Once the bread is baked, let cool and then spread a layer of almond butter over the top.
Then immediately dip the almond buttery side around in a small bowl of granola to coat the top.
Poke the tip of a small, sharp knife into the top to make a small hole and insert an apple stick to make the stem.
Now you have a beautiful, healthy acorn treat!

I can’t seem to stop myself from saving these yogurt containers. They are a great size and are so sturdy.
Because we go through so many of them, the growing stack was making me eligible to appear on Hoarders, so I needed to do something with them- and quick.
I didn’t know exactly what to do so I decided to decorate them and then go from there. Since fall is here, I went with a jute wrap.
I also used white yarn for contrast.
I just covered the container with glue (as I went, not all at once) and then just wrapped around.
This is a pretty simple project but I thought I would share. There are actually a lot of things you can do with these containers.
I used a couple to store picnic items.
And filled some with fall mums.
I used some for small random toys. The plastic lids are great, if you remember to save them.
I might still be eligible for Hoarders, I’m not sure. Is it still considered hoarding trash if it’s decorated?

Now that fall is here, I’ve been seeing more and more of these cute little apple cups.
They didn’t seem very practical but I thought they would make for cute pictures.
After my daughter chugged the juice in it then started chomping on the apple, I realized they actually were pretty practical….and fun.
It’s pretty self explanatory but just cut a section out of the top of your apple and then use a small spoon to scoop out most of the apple.
Fill it with warm or cold apple cider or juice. You can add a cinnamon stick to make a fun straw if you want.
Then just let the family drink, eat, and be merry.
