It might be August, but I can feel fall in the air. It’s getting close, I don’t know if its the change in the light in the evenings or the few trees starting to shed their green canopies, but it feels like early Fall in Kentucky. FYI: it’s still 90+ degrees and humid, so go figure!
Today I thought I’d share with you 5 DIY’s that are perfect for early fall. I’m not quite ready to bust out the pumpkins on the porch but these Cozy DIY’s have me in the mood to create!
Upcycled Sweater Tutorial on Viva Veltoro
These pillows made by Viva Veltoro are absolutely gorgeous and a great way to use a favorite sweater that you’re not ready to part with. There is a full tutorial on their site if you’d like to make some. If you don’t have any old sweaters you may be able to source some at a thrift store. The neutral, cozy texture would pair beautifully with a set of holiday pillows.

I don’t know about you but I am frequently stumped when it comes to choosing which batting to use in my quilt.

The Best Brownies
Over the summer my daughter decided she was going to find the BEST brownie recipe. She tried quite a few and we all acted as “taste testers”. In the end, we deiced that these brownies from the Food Nanny were our favorite. You need to melt chocolate in a double boiler, but trust me it’s worth it.

Recently I pulled out one of my favorite cookbooks, Skinny Taste Fast & Slow. Everything I have made from this book has turned out great. It focuses on Pressure & Slow Cooker recipes.
