Small Things - October 2, 2021

 "Life is not, for most of us, a pageant of splendor, but is made up of many small things, rather like an old fashioned piecework quilt. No two people have the same, but we all have our own, whether it be listening to Beethoven's fifth with a beloved friend, or seeing a neighbor at the back door with a basket of white dahlias. Or after a long, hard day, having the family say, "That was a good supper."

In no particular order, here are six small things that inspired me this week!

1. If you enjoyed the Brambly Hedge videos I shared with you yesterday, I found more!

2. I love this recipe for Hot Apple Cider Cinnamon Spice Mix, it's wonderful with apple cider or plain apple juice! Perfect for this time of year! She has a recipe for Gingerbread Spice Mix, as well!

3. Here's another recipe that sounds so good, Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal! It's like dessert for breakfast!

4. I realize that not all of my readers celebrate Halloween, but if you do I found some wonderful books at the Archives to give you lots of ideas! 

5. I love so much about Calico and Twine, but particularly enjoyed this article, filled with suggestions for simple ways to savor this lovely season!

6. Frond & Feather is another lovely blog and the photography alone is worth perusing! But this week I happened across this lovely article and knew immediately that it would make the list of small things this week!

Also, see that little coffee cup in the picture above? I found another one exactly like it at a thrift shop this week for $1, so now I have a set! **SWOOON**!
