Favorite Book Fridays

Welcome to Favorite Book Fridays! We absolutely love reading, and have acquired quite the collection of books, but of course, one can never have enough books! So what's one to do?! Head to the library, of course! We rediscovered the library when Jetta was a wee wittle, and have been regulars since.

Succulents in Pumpkins Thanksgiving Centerpiece DIY

Christmas is just around the corner, but Thanksgiving isn't over yet. I was inspired by an article I saw in Sunset Magazine about planting succulents in a pumpkin for a decorative display. I love succulents, I just can't get enough of them, so this was right up my alley.
