The end of November

It actually doesn't look this snowy in NY right now. It did... a few weeks ago. When I snapped this picture. I actually remembered to bring my camera with me somewhere, and it was so pretty, I pulled to the side of the road and snapped a picture. I may see how this looks in a large print and hang it over my mantel. Maybe.

So does anyone not know about Pinterest yet? Really? Get on top of this folks... it's the biggest thing since facebook! Anyways, I am addicted to pinterest. Not gunna lie. And there are so many awesome things you can find on it... go... I'll wait while you see what all the fuss is about. Anyhow...
I discovered these yummy cheese crackers pictured above.
And this crazy good chocolate chip cookie pie pictured below:

So while you dream of eating that, I'll recap you on my silent few weeks:
I went to VA with a friend of mine to visit with my brother and his new wife and daughter.
I finished Havilah's quilt.
I've sold some stuff on Etsy.
I'm rearranging some rooms in my home.
I've decorated for Christmas.
I've had Thanksgiving with my family.

And that's a wrap.

Happy November to all of you.
It's a lovely time of year.
Time to pull out sweaters. (I have a terrible sweater fettish!)
Time to turn on the Christmas music. That's right. I'm one of them.
Time to get out your up-cycled sweater bags!

Oh, you don't have one of those??
Head over to my Etsy shop. I have 2 of them for sale... more on the way.

I also listed some cute belts. A bargain at $8 each. Hopefully have more of these listed soon too! Think of those people on your Christmas lists.

How was your Halloween? Do you celebrate it? Did you have trick or treaters or go trick or treating? We took the boys to 2 houses. Yeah, we're not big on the holiday, but some people were expecting us, so we went. I didn't, however, buy any candy to pass out. I didn't remember getting kids coming to the door... then my huband reminded me of our friendly neighbors. So I ran to the kitchen and made some milk chocolate yummies:

Just little round disks with sprinkles. I put them in little baggies with my business card (is that lame or what?) and set them in a bowl on the porch. Several were gone when we got home... so somebody had some! I hope they enjoyed them!

Be back soon with some Christmas card ideas.
