It’s the weekend and you know what that means! Time for more of my Mitten Moments. Grab your favorite cup of or snack and come on over!
My Personal Moments
I took my oldest granddaughter for a walk when I was watching her earlier in the week and you know what we found? Orange and gold on the tips of one of the trees in her neighborhood. I could hardly believe it since it is still August, but it’s true.
See for yourself!
Do you have more weddings than usual this year? We had wedding number four of seven this weekend. Everyone is finally getting married due to the Covid delay. Big Al and I had a great time! You can see my handsome son and beautiful DIL had a good time too!
This Week On The Blog
I’ve recently had so much fun adding my favorite fall accent color to my blue and white decor. Earlier in the week I shared what that color is in my post The Best Accent Color For Blue & White This Fall.
If you didn’t see it, can you guess what it is?
It’s orange! It looks so pretty with blue and white.
Let me know if you like blue and white too!
A Few Of My Favorite Mitten Moments
I must have been really hungry this week, because most of my favorite moments consisted of food!
Okay, I have a confession. I love sweets…for breakfast and especially after lunch and dinner. Growing up in a southern family, there was always some kind of homemade sweet for dessert. Desserts like homemade banana pudding.
Can you relate?
Needless to say, when I saw the Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Bread With Crumble Topping shared by Elizabeth at Pinecones and Acorns, it stopped me mid-scroll!
Check it out for yourself!
You better believe I’ll be making this recipe!

Raise your hand if you love or have ever made a charcuterie board.
Yep, me too!
I’m on the charcuterie board train and have so much fun being creative with them! They are the perfect snack for any size gathering and there’s always something on them that everyone likes.
Rachel from The Ponds Farmhouse shared How to Make Individual Appetizers Mini Charcuterie Board Ideas and wait until you see them!
She even made a rosette out of salami! You have to go check out her blog!
Do you love hummus? It’s always a staple in our home.
Stacy from Bricks ‘n Blooms shared an Easy Hummus Recipe With Rice Cake Flowers.
These are the prettiest rice cake treats, ever!

Love all the orange blending with the Blue and white! What a great idea. I had usually done gold but love the orange!

I ordered one of your wreaths Kim and absolutely love it! Now I’m eyeballing the orange pumpkin pillow and the rust colored vase. Maybe you’ll make a decorator out of me yet! ♥️

I’ve got a sweet tooth, and stopped mid scroll on the pumpkin bread. Well give that a try this fall. Love your addition of color to give your decor a boost. Orange is warm and inviting. Not just for fall.
Love the links today. Updating a bedroom, apple salad, tubers…keep posting!
Doesn’t that look so delicious. I am definitely going to make that too! Thanks for your support! 💛

I just got home from my first ever trip to Michigan. It was lovely, and there was a hint of turning in those leaves!!
I hope you had a great time! The trees are turning ever so slightly now!
