friday favorites.

Inspired by my fall favorites post (maybe even including a few of them...) I took a stab at creating my first Etsy Treasury, aptly entitled 'Inspiring Autumn'. I'm using that board for my Friday Favorites post. The picture above is a screen shot of the page, but you can see the whole thing here. I mentioned on my facebook page that I would seriously be thrilled to have any item on this list (Christmas is just around the corner folks!) and there are lots of different price points too- so it's not like I'm being a Greedy McGreederson over here. People are always asking 'What would you like for Christmas? and my typical answer is 'I don't know. Money?' Always good, but oh so boring to open.

Regardless, I think there are a lot of items on here that make great gifts, so check it out. As a matter of fact, treasuries on Etsy are a great way to find something for the hard to shop for person in your life. Type in a couple of key words that describe items/colors/etc they might like and voila- you might stumble across something fabulous. Try it out for yourself here!

Plus, you will be supporting artists and small businesses that create unique handmade items! Hooray. :)

I really can't say enough good things about Etsy. I did a majority of my wedding shopping on the site and could not be happier with the customer service and products received.

Also- don't forget to head over to Emmaline Bride and enter to win a custom clutch made by yours truly. If you are one of my dear, dear readers I would really love to make a bag for you!!!

Hope you all have a very Happy Halloween!!!

Thought it was high time to do a short and sweet post dedicated to my favorite time of year (see title of post). Changing leaves, chilly nights, bonfires, pumpkin spice lattes, hoodies, scarves, college football, dry air...I LOVE fall.

Here are just a few things I've noticed around the web this week that reminded me we're almost in November!

Need to make these Pumpkin-Gingerbread Muffins with Mini Chocolate Chips TODAY!

EmersonMade has a clothing line? with tweed coats?? YES, please.

A mini pine cone necklace. love.

You guys know how much I love handmade, one of a kind items, right? Check out these chic and stylish knit hats, scarves and headbands made by IndeeMitch! They've got super cute models too. :) (hi sissy!)

Birch wall art? I so want this over my bed.

But I saved the best for last. If you are married, engaged or just a couple in love, High Cotton Events and Leslie&B have teamed up to give away a styled love shoot for free! Check out Carlee's post here to enter! The only requirements are that you must live in the Southeast. (You will have me for competition, fyi) ;)
