We are having some amazing fall weather this weekend! Fall weather is a great time for admiring the beautiful leaves, lots of football, a yummy pot of chili, and the perfect time to share my Mitten Moments!
Speaking of football, both my teams had big wins yesterday! The Wolverines and the Vols! What could be better?
My Personal Mitten Moments
Who knew there was a National Kim Day?! It’s true! On October 11th my son, Mitchell, sent me notification that it was National Kim Day. I’m all about a good celebrations, so yay me!
We headed up north to our friends lake house yesterday. The fall colors were absolutely beautiful and it was such a good day spent with friends! Are you seeing the fall color where you are?

I’ve started a new book for my book club. It’s called Razorblade Tears by S.A. Cosby. It’s a thriller/mystery and so far I really like it.
Have you read any good books lately? If so, let me know in the comments. I’m on the search for our next book club read!

This Week On The Blog
It was a quite week on the blog as I have been working hard on some upcoming projects.
I did however, finally get my dollhouse post out for you guys. We have been working on it for awhile and honestly, it is a bigger project than Big Al and I thought. Some of the wallpaper I ordered for it won’t be in until the end of the month.
I’ll be sharing more of the progress soon!
A Few Of My Favorite Mitten Moments
My friend Kristin, Kristin from White Arrows Home is a blogger, shop owner, has her own podcast. She is a collector of vintage items and treasured moments. Her blog is beautiful and this week she shared 3 Fall Centerpieces in Vintage Totes. You will love how she used these items for centerpieces. Kristin also shared a sweet excerpt written by her daughter.

Happy Sunday, Kim! fall temperatures are moving in here, too! Not quite sweater time here, but beautiful color has arrived. Loved all of your finds this week.
Thank you, Leslie! Enjoy all those fall colors!
Happy Sunday, Kim. We’re having gorgeous fall weather here too and I’m loving it! Yesterday was a chili and football day at our house as well, but my Huskers couldn’t pull off the upset last night. Darn.
Thank you so much for sharing my chocolate icebox cake. I appreciate it!🥰
You are welcome, friend! I’m hoping your Huskers get the win next week!!
Happy Sunday!!! It’s beautiful here in Colorado too!!! Love fall! Looking forward to seeing more of your dollhouse…love that. And thanks for sharing my pillow post! Have a great week.
So glad you have the beautiful colors in Colorado! Have a great week, friend!

“The Last Thing He Told Me” was a fabulous reading. I couldn’t put it down
for any length of time. I highly suggest reading this one.
We read that last month, Debbie! We all really enjoyed it, too! Happy Sunday!
We had some chilly evenings here. Sweaters were required but the days have been nice. I have shorts on right now. Thank you for sharing my fall mantel. Enjoy the beautiful fall season.
So nice to have warm days and cool nights! The best sleeping weather! Happy Sunday!

Thanks so much for sharing my totes! I’ve just finished reading Return to Me by Lynn Austin and the three books in the Keeper Series by Charles Martin.
You’re welcome and thanks so much for the recommendations! Have a great week!

Just about any of Kristen Hannah’s books are great (Firefly Lane) and Michael Connely’s ‘Bosch’ Books are pretty good also.

Fall is my time of year, wish it could stay around longer:)
Thanks for the recommendations and Go Blue!!!
So sweet of you to share my carvable pumpkin centerpiece, Kim, thank you so much. I really appreciate it! I love the way you put mums in yours on your front porch and I’ll definitely share them this Friday. My Pinterest feed is full of Christmas but I don’t want Thanksgiving to pass us by without stopping to celebrate. I know your beautiful mum and pumpkin planters would help make it extra special! Hope you have a happy week, CoCo
Awe, thank you so much, CoCo! I am on the Christmas train too, but I’m with you! I definitely don’t want to miss all that we have to be thankful for, this Thanksgiving! Enjoy the rest of your week!
Love Fall, the colors and spice smells. Warm comfort food. Cozy blankets. Love your doll house. Can’t wait to see the progress.
Thank you, Tina! The dollhouse is coming along good!
