September 2013 Rewind

Can you believe how fast last month went? I blinked on August 31st and now it's the beginning of October! In case you were sideswiped by the fast moving train of September also, I'm sharing some of the highlights from the month today in my September 2013 Rewind.
One of my favorite (and yours) projects this month was this Orange Sweater Hoop Pumpkin from the yard sale find sweater I picked up last year. I was honored to see it featured on so many fun blogs.
Then there were the Apple Whoopie Pies with Cookie Butter Filling...yum! Cookie Butter has been making the rounds in the blogosphere and I couldn't resist whipping up something with it too.

Sadly, we had to say Goodbye to Oliver this month too. While not exactly a highlight of the month, it was a very emotional time in our family's life. Thanks for all the sweet comments and encouraging words many of you left.
On a much happier note, I am one of 10 blogs participating in an It's Fall Y'all Link Party(link to this week's party) that goes live every Saturday morning at 7am Eastern. It started this month and a new party goes up every Saturday through November 2nd. Definitely come by with your FALL projects and recipes to link up!
Another sweater project, my Orange Sweater Dollar Store Vase makeover seemed to inspire a lot of you too. I saw many comments and pins suggesting doing the same thing for winter. I love putting an idea out there and seeing where you all take it!
Pumpkins made their appearance this month and I am so grateful! I love using pumpkin in baked goods and these Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Brownies are no exception. I hope you'll give them a try.

Last, but not least, I showed you my Orange & Turquoise Fall Mantel bedecked with items I had on  hand and ones that I tweaked a little too.

September was a hard month in many ways...losing Oliver, starting back with our homeschool studies, my husband's new job~ which involves the whole family some days. It was also a fun month to stretch my creativity when I had little energy left at the end of the day. I am so thankful that you came by and left kind words of encouragement. Your sweet comments make my day!

Be sure and come back tonight at 8pm Central for our weekly All Things Thursday Blog Hop. I'll be sharing my picks for features from last week's party too. Oh, and there will be a giveaway!!!! You don't want to miss it!

I'm linking up at some of these great parties and
