  • Some of these look soooo amazing. You’d probably like my warm spiced milk recipe I posted up. I must try the maiden braids but I fear my hair is far too long to do it (my hair is 34″ long) but we’ll see what happens. That milkshake with the pie is so cute.

  • Why have you done this to me?? My list of things to create is now a mile long! 😀

  • Wow! You really inspired me for this autumn!! Just don’t know where to start now:)

  • PLEASE, can you tell me the name/brand of the nail color in the second pic???!!! Love it and want it! It’s so “putty-ish”.

  • I loved the Maiden Braids last year and I still do this autumn! And…your post reminds me that I already wanted to make this beautiful autumn leave garland last year…hopefully I can manage to make one this time!


  • God, i like your pictures very much! I wonder you may like my site which also have many pictures you may like.

  • Love seeing all these posted. I had actually found the pumpkin pie milkshake recipe a few weeks ago and recently did some this week. I can proudly say I’m officially hooked. Now to try that spiced apple cider. I’m excited!

  • Thanks so much for continually impressing me with your posts. I have been wanting to learn how to do the maiden braid. So I am glad you posted that. Thanks!

  • LOVE fall – spiced ANYTHING is good! I love adding a cinnamon stick to just about anything – YUM!

  • this post just made me so hungry! pumpkin pie milkshakes, spiced cider whoopie pies, and the most beautiful oatmeal ever all in one post?! amazing!


  • These all look like a lot of fun! Especially like the look of the ladybird costume 🙂

  • Love! Those spiced cider whoopie pies look amazing!



  • I’m sure you all get a lot of comments, and you probably aren’t able to read them all, but I’m hoping you see this one!

    I just wanted to say how freaking cool I think you ladies are. Your blog is incredible, and you always post the neatest stuff…and being from Overland Park, KS I think it’s even cooler that you’re from Springfield, MO!

    PLUS, I just bought your chambray dress with the heart pockets on Modcloth… I’ve been looking to buy a new dress for awhile, but I haven’t found the right now… I saw that and IMMEDIATELY fell in love. I’m so excited to get it in the mail.


    Thanks for being so awesome!

  • loving the Lady Bird costume and the oatmeals! yum!


  • The acorn garland is super great and soooo fall. It is starting to cool down and the wind is picking up! Fall is in the air!

  • I’m loving these projects! I found a similar sweatshirt restyle last fall and recreated them as out family’s “Christmas sweaters” of the year.

    Xo, Kelsey


  • P.S. My hair would never do those adorable maiden braids, its too thin:( I love the look of it though.



  • While I can’t help but love all of it, especially the milkshakes, I just adore the acorn garland. It has to be my favorite!



  • Ahhhh, heart melts a little bit at the acorn bunting and the ribbon wreath.Rx


  • you ladies have the coolest blog ever! i need to show my daughter the braid in last shot and i love the lady bird costume!

  • Just bought a pumpkin this morning!
    Defenitely going to try the milkshake tomorrow!

  • Those things are so lovely, the 8 different styles of porridge, the pumpkin pie milkshake looks amazing (heading over to check it out), the garlands are gorgeous and how great are those rag doll wigs!

  • So many awesome, pretty things! Those pumpkin pie milkshakes look to die for!

  • Its funny seeing these again, you gals have the CUTEST projects and I’m almost constantly trying recipes you post! Thanks for the inspiration.

  • such great ideas, lots of things to go back and look at. Love that doily sweater

  • So many lovely photos and items! Such an inspiration!


  • That pumpkin pie milkshake is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!

  • SO glad you posted this, since I’m relatively new to your blog, I wasn’t familiar with any of thsee. And the oatmeal one might have just saved my life. Seriously. I am approaching suicidal levels of breakfast boredom. Heading over for the fix right now!


  • Love this… I just started following your blog maybe 3 or four months back! It’s nice to see the cute fall things you all have done in the past!

    Thanks for sharing!


  • Love the Lady Bird costume! Might have to give that a go for Halloween! Cute!


  • Awww I’m so glad you posted this I love these! The acorn garland and the lace sweater are my favourite 🙂

    I love your collection for modcloth too, I’ve snapped up the chevron top and I can’t wait to style it <3


  • I am loving the cupcake toppers and the costumes! I love fall!

  • Thanks for posting this! Reminded me of the beautiful yet simple maiden braids 🙂

  • Oh the sweatshirt restyle is magic! I know just the two sweatshirts I’d love to restyle and I love white on white. This is gorgeous! I was given two sweatshirts that are super comfy and cosy that I love wearing at home (except, the prints on them when I look down – even at home – make me cringe!) I love this idea. I think I’ll have to put something underneath the crocheted bits to hide the print. Thanks for sharing this – it’s been pinned 🙂

  • this is such a cool recap! these (especially the recipes) would all really come in handy this season! THANK YOU! and how cute is katie with her daughter in those costumes? 🙂


  • I need to get on my fall crafts, quick! Love the maiden braids. I need to learn how to do those. 🙂

  • I really love today’s collection of favorites. I will definitely have to do a seasonal post now. What a great idea! You have such a great eye.

  • Amazing collection! Thsoe pumpkin pie milkshakes sound absolutely lucious, and the tablecloth they are on is too adorable for words.
