Good morning, and a very happy, happy Friday to you. I am always ready for the weekend but as I mentioned at least once before this week has just felt very long. Hopefully the weekend will feel the same because I feel like spending a few hours in the kitchen with some pumpkin, making some old favorites and a few new.

Although I did not have a lot of time this week for perusing the Internet I did manage to find a few favorites. I realize there are something like 125 million blogs for me to explore but I find I am often drawn to the same things over and over, food, travel, design, books, and art to name but a few topics. I hope you find something new, if not I hope that you will share your new finds with me.

If you are a decor fan and would like to know what is trending in design, check out the guest post from Gudy of Eclectic Trends on Decor8. Gudy has just returned from the Maison & Objets show in Paris and her post is filled with all of the “in” things in decor this season.

Fall is the perfect time, at least in my mind, to bake bread. It is so comforting to smell the spices and yeast and to enjoy a fresh from the oven piece of bread( or two ) with butter. This year I am going to try some new bread recipes and one of those will be Brioche from Twigg Studios. If you are not familiar with the incredibly talented Aimee than make sure that you have a free hour or two to peruse her beautiful blog and recipes.

While you are doing that, make a little more time and visit my new blog discovery, The Little Red House. Sheena is a photographer and of course the blog is filled with drool worthy photos, many of which you can find in The Family Flavor, a book written by fellow blogger Whitney Ingram.

If you are looking for the perfect time to take in the Fall foliage than look no further than Roadtrippers. I have heard the colors are going to be beautiful this year.
Don’t forget to watch The Last Tango in Hailifax on Sunday for a little light hearted fun to start your week off. Or to check out this triple tissue commercial from Extra gum. I actually saw it this week on a fellow blogger page but I cannot remember who to give credit to. If it was your post please let me know so I can link to you.

I will leave you with this long lost Van Gogh painting which was “discovered sitting in an attic ” interesting “hook” to the story but not the whole one. If you are interested you can read about it HERE and if you would like more information about Vincent van Gogh and the newly renovated museum in Amsterdam, click HERE
I hope that you have a fabulous weekend. Be safe and enjoy!
One last thought, if you feel like a little chocolate, come over to Once Upon a Chocolate Life and try these S’more Brownies! Easy and delicious.
