This and That

Today I'm going to be talking about keychains, plaid, hair, kitties, pumpkin cupcakes, and a little fall decorating.

My little felt bird keychain I made when I got my new car has been looking a little sad for a while. (No wonder, since it gets so much use.) I went to and customized my own keychain. It was easy to upload an image I created on picmonkey. I caught a sale on keychains so I got a really good deal. I chose to go with a CNA theme. To finish the keychain I found a stethoscope and a blood pressure cuff charm that was for sale by an ebay seller.

I am loving Target's new plaid line. They have plaid everything! Clothes, party supplies, home decor, coffee mugs, even Listerine. I found some note cards and a little notebook that had to come home with me. 

I also got a black and white plaid headband. I'm loving it! Plaid is great for fall and winter. 

I recently discovered the technique of diffusing my hair instead of letting it air dry. The result is looser curls with more bounce. Which do you think looks better?

With fall here, I've been waiting for an opportunity to make my pumpkin spice cake. The opportunity finally arrived today. I usually make a layer cake with fluffy cream cheese icing but this time I decided to make cupcakes instead.

The rich autumnal colors make it a little hard to decorate for fall in my aqua, red, white, and vintage inspired room. I have so much more to work with when it comes to spring decorating. I make do though, by using lots of candles, a few white pumpkins, and books. 

I made this little banner a few years ago out of scraps of scrapbook paper and letter stickers. 

I'll leave you with this adorable picture of Pinky. We decided to dress Pinky for fall the other day. Amazingly she didn't mind getting dressed up. I think our pumpkin spice kitty was basking in all the attention. She didn't even seem to notice something was around her neck. :) Isn't she the cutest kitty?
