Craftsy

Fall is my favorite time of the year y’all!  We are only a week away from the official first day of fall, which is September 22nd.  I thought I’d share some of my favorite finds for fall 2017.  I’ve also included some crafty links in there for all my crafty friends!

Coffee, coffee, coffee!

Even though I drink coffee year round, when fall weather hits it’s time for a new coffee cup & special coffee drinks!  Here are my top picks for a new cup:

Drinks for Your Mug

What good is a mug without something delicious to drink in it?  I love trying new hot drink recipes for my mug when the weather cools.  Here are some on my list to try:

  • Maple Chai Latte from Through Her Looking Glass ~ Chai lattes are full of warm spices & flavor.  The addition of maple syrup sounds heavenly!
  • Cambodian Coffee from Nellie Bellie ~ Super simple & it looks super tasty too!
  • French Hot Chocolate from Well Plated ~ Few things can bump a coffee related drink out of my cup – chocolate would be one of them!  This looks so decadent & it does have a little espresso powder for extra flavor.  ; )

Check out my Pinterest boards “Coffee”  & “Recipes ~ Drinks” for more inspiration!  I may be separating the drink board into hot & cold drinks eventually.  There are mostly cold drinks at the top right now, since summer

Fashion

If you were to look up “fall fashion” on Google, you’re going to find a million pictures of outfits with boots, scarves, & wraps over leggings.  This look is great for fall because it’s cozy & comfortable, but I like to mix things up sometimes!  Here are few options for different fall looks that I’m digging right now ~>

 

 

Even though I like to mix things up, I still love a good boot & scarf/wrap combo!  Cents of Style has the perfect deal going on this weekend to get your fall wardrobe going.  They are celebrating Fashion Friday’s 5th birthday with a boot & scarf combo for $29.95 OR boot & kimono combo for $34.95.  As always shipping is FREE!  Just use the code FIVEYEAR at checkout.  Some of the kimonos have pockets y’all!  Perfect for holding snacks or keeping your hands warm.  ; )  The boots are low cut which works great for me & my big calves!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sewing Patterns

Since I sew, I had to include a few items on my “to make” list.  Hopefully I’ll get one done before the weather cools!

  • Jasper Sweater Dress from Paprika Patterns ~ I would make this into just a hoodie instead of a dress.
  • Biker Jacket {plus size} from Burda Style ~ I like that this pattern is made with a different material than what’s normally seen for a biker jacket.
  • Fumeterre Skirt from Deer & Doe ~ This skirt is fabulous!

Home 

During the fall months it’s time to start warming up the home with some fun accents.  Most of these I would like year round!

Make it Yourself

Make some fall decor for your home with these easy crafts ~>

  • Chenille Pumpkins from My Thrifty House ~ A great way to recycle a much loved blanket!
  • How to Paint Acorns from Home Stores A to Z ~ Irma knocked down lots of acorns in my yard, so I’m going to try this out!
  • Painted Pine Cones from Teadoddles ~ This is a project I did last year & I still love it!

 

Okay y’all, I could go on & on & on about my favorites for fall, but I think I’ll stop for now!  Hope y’all have a great weekend!
