A Few Favorites 9.29

Autumn is here.  The leaves are changing.  Sweaters and boots are back.  You can order something with pumpkin in the name at just about any restaurant you stop at.  So, naturally, my favorite things this week are leaning a little towards autumnal things. 

Photos are taken from their respective blog or Etsy shop.

1.  Autumn means time to curl up with a book.  What Should I Read Next is a fun webpage were you type in the name or author of a book you enjoyed, hit enter, and peruse a list of books it recommends for you that are similar to what you had entered.

2.  Gingerbread Cookie Perfume Oil is from Etsy Shop Symbolic Imports.  This shop has great smelling products and fabulous customer service.  I ordered this perfume last year and it smells good, without smelling like you're a walking gingerbread man.  I always got comments about how good it smelled.  I'd say it's defiantly an autumn/winter scent, but it's not overpoweringly strong, and it comes in a roll on, so it's easy to carry in your bag.

3. This African Flower Crochet Pattern is from a new blog I came across called The Yvestown Blog.  The blog is full of beautiful photos and crafty things.  I love this African Flower design.  It kind of reminds me of a hipper version of a granny square and looks simple enough.  If I ever get going and learn to crochet, I want to make some of these for sure.

4. This Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer from Shugary Sweets is a tasty little treat for your coffee.  I made it with half and half instead of whipping cream, but I think next time I make it, I may splurge and use the cream.  Also, it tastes better the next day, after the flavors have had a chance to meld a little.  I strained all the little pieces of pumpkin out the next day, just because I didn't like them in the bottom of my cup, but it's totally a preference thing. 

So there you are, four fun things to try.  What do you think of autumn?  Are you ready, or are you dreading it?
