Weekend Bits – Links I Love

Hello weekend!  What took you so long?  Here is my weekly roundup of favorite links:

From emerald to army, the color green is huge for fall. I plan to add this Swatch watch  as a fun pop of color to my fall wardrobe.

Cupcakes for Breakfast has me craving carbs with their recipe Pasta with Roasted Tomato, Corn, Spinach and Ricotta.

Halloween is right around the corner.  My daughter and I can’t wait to do try our hand at some of these spooky Halloween projects  from Tatertots & Jello.

If you love the vintage farmhouse look, you’ve got to follow Debbie Dusenberry, founder of Curious Sofa, here on Pinterest.

School is in session with this amazing chalkboard birthday cake from A Subtle Revelry. It would be perfect for the little kiddo who loves to play school.

Hallmark Cards announced this week that they plan to open a specialty store called HMK on the Country Club Plaza in KC.  The store will have a boutique feel and sell greeting cards and trendy little gifts like jewelry, pillows, children’s clothing, candles and ornaments,  This article from the Kansas City Star has all the details. I can’t wait to check it out.

In my quest for the perfect sofa, I’ve become obsessed with the Chesterfield style. Read more about it in my design crush post from this week.

Enjoy your weekend!

Weekend Bits – Links I Love

Weekend mornings are my time to pour a cup of coffee and catch up on my favorite blogs and sites around the web.  Here are a few of my favorite links this week:

Camo is a huge trend this fall.  I’ve got mixed feelings about it but think it can be stylish in small doses. The post ‘Camo Crush’ by Happily Grey shows how to pull off a camo t-shirt perfectly.

The NFL season officially kicked off on Thursday and we’re ready for some football!  For the big game, I’d love to throw a beer tasting party like the one Camille Styles has dreamed up on this Pinterest board.

I’m in the market for a new couch for my hearth room and I’ve fallen head over heels for the Chesterfield style sofa.  Distinguished by tufted cushions and arms and backs of the same height, it’s known as a lounging couch.  This one from Restoration Hardware makes my heart go pitter-patter.

With cooler weather right around the corner, I’m already thinking about layering basics for fall.  J. Crew’s Perfect-Fit Long-Sleeve Tee is one of my favorites.  And it’s on sale right now – bonus!

I can’t wait to try this Cheddar Jalapeno Chicken Burger with Guacamole recipe from What’s Gaby Cooking.  It looks mouth watering good!

Get ready for a new season of television shows.  Dancing With The Stars announced their new cast this past week .  If you missed my post with the rundown of the new celebs, you can find it here.

Happy Sunday!
