Fall Food, Win & Giveaway

If you haven't entered my giveaway for a $200 gift certificate to Modern Bird Studios you can still enter HERE.

There is just something about cooler weather and turning leaves that makes me want to cook something.  Yesterday I made a large pot of homemade beef and vegetable soup.  This is such comfort food and great for this time of year.

I don't bake often mainly because we don't need the extra calories.  I decided yesterday in the spirit of Fall to make pumpkin bread. Of course I had to put a little vignette together with my blue and white transferware!






See the gorgeous French damask napkins?   I was the lucky winner of Laura's giveaway at  Decor To Adore  and  Metis Linens .  Thank you so much Laura!

I am joining the parties at:

Thanks for your visit!
xoxo,
Sherry

I have red, and green, I think I should start on the blue too!! :) It is delightful!! Your pumpkin bread looks delicious! Funny thing, I made pumpkin bread this weekend too!!!

Hi Sherry, you know I'm a sucker for blue and white in any form - but that pitcher is perfect. Loving those napkins, weren't you lucky to win them! I can only imagine that pumpkin bread tastes wonderful, I'd love to make some but I've never seen canned pumpkin in the UK. I read somewhere that fresh cooked pumpkin is too watery to use.
Enjoy your week
Rose H
