crazy cubed . . .

I had every intention of posting over the weekend, but life is crazy and work is crazy and our weekend was crazy (with Boy Scouts, Disaster Relief training and church picnics all at the camp). Even so, I had time to do a little fall baking on Saturday . . .
I saw a recipe for and Apple, Honey and Brie Crostata in the current issue of Southern Lady and decided to give it a go.
It was very good with a cup of spiced tea as an afternoon snack!

I got some autumnal decorations out, too . . . 
You know it's October when the pumpkins make their appearance!

I won a nifty new gadget from participating in the 2018 Blogger's Quilt Festival!  It's a square set of orange pop rulers by KimberBell . . .
They arrived in the mail this week.  Fun, no??  I love new gadgets!

I also got my first birthday happy of the season!
Janet sent me this fun-filled package with my very favorite pumpkin shaped soaps, some darling prim pumpkin labels, and a tasty treat (which I admit, was opened and 'tested' first thing)!

Only 13 more hexies to baste before I can whip 'em! And I plan on taking care of those 13 while lounging on another early birthday present . . .
Isn't it gorgeous??!  My daughter jokingly told me that I'd pretty much doubled my living space!  I'm so excited, I can't wait for the coming weekend to enjoy it!

And speaking of daughters, the youngest of her's--Edith Rose--is quite the charmer:
I adore pics like this!  She's such a ham (and a pretty good eater, too)!!

Happy hump day -- enjoy the rest of this glorious October week!
