BFF Open House

Happy Friday Eve, and mid-October, all! Full speed ahead to the end of the year and so many holidays. I continue to be heartbroken by the news and what's happening in Israel and the ongoing news out of Ukraine, and being able to escape into creating things is therapeutic. I finished my Halloween Cards for friends and family, which I shared here. There's so much hate and destruction in the world that without trivializing any of it, seeing the beauty you all create each week helps soothe my soul.

Pumpkins are everywhere. I am partial to the ones some people find ugly. The differently shaped or knotty ones in non-traditional colors. Let's take a look at some ideas. 

Steph Creates really knocked it out of the park with this DIY Pumpkin Display made from supplies Dollar Tree. 

Fresh Vintage by Lisa S shared these fabulous Baking Pan Pumpkins. Hit the thrift stores (or your cupboards) and grab some spray paint! 
With holiday entertaining season upon us, these Fall Themed Stamped Tumbled Tile Coasters from An Artful Mom make a lovely hostess gift or if you're hosting, can you ever have enough coasters?

Finally, these Classic Pumpkin Scones (served with Maple Thyme Butter!) are perfect for this time of year. From The Copper Table.

As always, thanks to all who link up each week and WELCOME to first timers! Let's see what you've been up to this week. Take care of yourselves! 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

I can SO relate to the need to escape, Carol. As a matter of fact, I've been feeling that way for for quite a while! Take care of yourself...

It does seem like the world is becoming more and more scary everyday. It's keeping me focused on what's important and in constant prayer.
Thank you for hosting each week! I enjoy visiting as many blogs as I can.
I am so glad you liked my pumpkin pans- I really appreciate you sharing them in the feature.

Yes, the world is a broken place, indeed. And, I agree, escaping into creativity is so therapeutic. Thank you so much for featuring my stamped tile coasters - I appreciate that so much! Have a great weekend!
