Merry and Bright and a Recipe

Hello!

How was your weekend? Yesterday afternoon our house/kitchen was a slice of autumn goodness with some fresh pressed apple juice simmering on the stove in mulling spices and I baked a batch of pumpkin cookies with caramel frosting. It never ceases to amaze me how happy and content I feel about the littlest things! When I was done in the kitchen I was sitting on the couch in the family room reading and every once in a while I'd get a big whiff of the apple cider and I would close my eyes, breath deep and smile. Ahhhh......

Today I'm going to jump ahead just a bit a share a Christmas card with you that I made a while back.


I used one of my all time favorite collections, Holiday Style by October Afternoon.


I couldn't get enough of the little flags so I made some of my own with the sentiment stickers included in the line.

I can't believe Halloween is this week, can you? Do you have any spooky fun plans lined up? I plan to eat some more of those pumpkin cookies I baked yesterday, if they last that long! ;) I got the recipe from Pinterest.

Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Frosting

The recipe is from Let's Dish. They're really easy to make.

Thanks for your visit! I hope you have a good Monday!

Love all the flags! The colors are really wonderful, too! TFS!
I hope all is well where you are. Doesn't sound like you have any worries about Sandy with how your day went. That's a very good thing! It's back to cooler fall weather here, but we've got lots of sun, so that's really nice!

Your card is darling and those cookies look sooo yummy--They're tempting me to actually get in my kitchen and bake (something I do only in a blue moon). ;)

What have you used to hold the flags? It doesn't look like a regular skewer or a toothpick, just curious :) thanks!
