Friday Favorites from Driven by Decor, Savor Home, Williams Sonoma, The Modern Mrs. Darcy and More

Good morning! Happy weekend! How was your week? Do you have any plans for the weekend? It will be raining here so whatever I do will be in the house. Maybe a little reading and a little baking, not for myself but to send to a friend.

30 Tips for Fabulous Fall Decorating

I do not a lot of decorating for Fall, a few pumpkins, leaves, mums, antlers, tartan blankets and that is about it. If you are looking for a few tips to decorate for Fall head over to Driven by Decor, where there are 30 Tips for Fabulous Fall Decor  using fruits, pumpkins and more.

Soup is one of my favorite Fall and Winter foods and I am always looking for a new and delicious recipes. This Butternut Squash Soup from Savor Home looks like it will be on my menu for the next few months, especially since it is made in a Crock-pot!

I love baking, but then you already knew that, and I am always searching for the perfect chocolate chip cookies. I like them crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside and with lots of chocolate. A few weeks ago I discovered this recipe from Williams Sonoma and I have to tell you that these just might be the perfect chocolate chip cookie! If you feel like baking this weekend than you should put these cookies on your list.

Are you looking for a new Fall cocktail, perhaps something to enjoy at the weekend or for a party? Then look no further than Food & Wine Fall Cocktails. I think I am going to try the mulled cider.

Did you find anything interesting this week, a book, movie, recipe or article? If so please share.

I hope that you have a great weekend!


  1. Everything looks so tempting. The pecan bars too! I'm going to check out the butternut squash soup--I'm always in the market for a new way to make it.

  2. Good morning Elizabeth! Greetings to you on this last day of September of 2016. It's coming, this season of hunkering down and taking in the change of the season. Enjoy yourself in every way!

  3. Love your Friday posts with all the great links. Going to check them out now. Have a great weekend, Elizabeth!

  4. I loved the links that you shared with us - thank you!

  5. Now that it is October, I am actually getting excited about Fall. Thanks for all these links. The cookies and milk have me craving...cookies and milk! :) And, I am going to read "The Little Corner Bookshop" right away. Have you ready "Goodnight June" by Sarah Jio? It is a similar premise and I adored it!

    It is rainy and cold here too - the perfect weekend to relax with a good book! Hope you have a lovely and relaxing weekend! xoxox

  6. Quite behind in my reading and catching up on blogs in general but enjoying a lazy and rare Sunday morning to make my rounds:) Always enjoy seeing what has gotten your attention! I am kinda stuck on those cookies and pecan bars....yum! Cannot wait to read The Little Corner the name too.

    Cold, dreary and wet here, a perfect day for reading and movie watching. Enjoy!
