Friday Faves

Friday, August 31, 2018

Evening, y'all!  Just popping in, while I'm waiting for my big kiddo to get home from our local high school's football game, with a happy, little list of things that have captured my attention this month, beginning with Simple Stories' Forever Fall 12x12 Collection Kit.  Woodgrain, florals, polka dots, colorful plaids, cool blues, warm oranges, scrumptious pumpkins, darling foxes... need I say more?!  Absolutely gorgeous!  This one oozes all the things that I love most about fall.
So much so, that I couldn't help but throw in these coordinating Bits and Pieces...
Cardstock Stickers...
and Chipboard Stickers.  LOVE!
And since I'm knee-deep in fall goodness, how about we try the Thankful Leaves Bundle, from Concord & 9th, on for size?  I adore these rustic, leaf images and that happy, little splatter; and the simple sentiments are pure perfection.
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Reverse Confetti; so, of course, the darling, fox-and-raccoon pair, found in their new, Greatest Adventure stamp set, simply had to make this month's lineup.  I just love the happy mix of sweet, scene-building images and perfect, little sentiments, too!
After church a couple of Sundays back, my family and I decided to try out a new restaurant on the recommendation of a friend.  There was a long wait at Carlos and Mickey's; but it was oh, so worth it.  Delicious!  Several chandeliers similar to these Moroccan Hanging Lamps, from Dervish Handicrafts, were hanging in their foyer; and my hubby and I decided we needed one for our foyer at home.  So pretty!  And I love that you can pick your shades out of 72 colorful options.
The same friend who recommended Carlos and Mickey's to us, also introduced us to Blue Bell's Southern Blackberry Cobbler Ice Cream; when she hand-delivered it to us as a welcoming gift here in El Paso.  Shame on her!  We've fallen hook, line, and sinker!  I don't think I've ever eaten ice cream so good in my entire life.  I've given you Blue Bell's website link above, but I couldn't find this particular flavor there.  Matter of fact, I couldn't find a link, for you all, anywhere.  So, just keep a lookout in your grocer's freezers; because it's truly drool-worthy.
We're looking forward to a long weekend in my neck of the woods and heading out to our first Chihuahuas game tomorrow evening.  We've gotta have our baseball!  Thanks ever so much for visiting, friends!  Have a wonderful weekend!
