Celebrating October

Hello! I just realized because of my blogging break earlier this month, I didn't get a chance to share some of my favorite things about October. There are four days left in the month, which is plenty of time to squeeze in a few simple pleasures, right? Click on the links for instructions and recipes.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I hope you have had a wonderful October, so far!

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

All these say Autumn and more. I've made fritters. I use pancake mix, add water and grated apple. Then drop by teaspoon in hot oil until brown, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

I don't know that I've ever commented over here, but I love to just pop on over and read your blog. The pictures today were just beautiful. I've not had much of a chance to decorate a home of my own yet, but your pictures stir my soul to have my own beauty to enjoy someday. Lovely, just lovely.

Hi Kelli!
It is sad to see October go! I live in Ohio and the leaves are just gorgeous right now. Your pictures are beautiful! I have to tell you that I made your "Thanksgiving Tree" and my family has had so much fun with writing out the many blessings we have. I truly appreciate your blog. Take care!
God Bless,

We are in the middle of moving with everything in boxes...looking at all your lovely fall things makes me so anxious to get into our new home and start making it "homey" - so exciting! Your decorating certainly says "home"!

How funny; I am from Texas and now live in the Midwest.
The things you have in your home are lovely and you are very talented. I hope you won't mind me adding your site to my daily visits. We, too, love the apple fritters.

LOL because my eyes looked past the candlelight and right at that big bowl of caramels. YUM!

Three Little Witches

One little, two little, three little witches
Fly over haystacks and fly over ditches
Fly over moonbeams without any hitches
Hey, it's Halloween night.
One little, two little, three little witches
Fly over barb wire and tore their britches
Had to go home and get some stitches
Hey, it's Halloween night!! hehe

Happy Halloween dear Kelli:-) I absolutely love all of your Autumn decorations and now I'm craving for candy corn and cookies!!! hehe xoxo

Hi Kelli!

Thanks for the wonderful October recipes. I have some NC mountain apples that will probably make good fritters.
