I've been doing some online shopping lately so I broke out my purchases from Indigo. Seriously, I could buy everything in that store. These stoneware mugs (made to look like vintage tinware) were too cute to pass up as were these salt and pepper mason jars, which I filled with cinnamon and cocoa for topping. A-dorable. I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of these over the winter.
The pumpkin crunch pancakes were delicious. To make them a bit more special, I made them in mini form and placed them on a skewer accompanied by a tiny cup of real maple syrup. So easy for dipping and one-handed eating ;) I added a dash of pumpkin spice latte syrup to the hot chocolate and topped it with raspberry marshmallows I picked up at Bobbette and Belle a few weeks ago. Decadent!
Speaking of decadent, it was a bit chilly outside so I brought out our cozy textiles. I topped the metal table with an old blanket and burlap tablecloth. On the bench, I stored away the summer pillows and piled it high with our warm weather accessories. Faux fur, cable knit, plaid... I can't get enough of these textures at this time of year.
Chloe was so excited when she got home. That girl loves her hot chocolate. Then we curled up under the blanket, sang Happy Birthday to Sean, and watched the snow start to fall. There's more snow in the forecast so I'm afraid this might be our last outdoor celebration for a while. I'm so not ready for winter yet, are you?
