~pumpkin, sage, & bacon soup~

This soup recipe is to die for.
I adapted the recipe from here to my liking.

Heat all the ingredients minus the bacon and cheese over low for 15 minutes, stirring often.
To serve, ladle into a bowl and garnish with bacon crumbles and parmesan cheese.

~Halloween table setting~ {& DIY place card holders}

This is the cutest set up in my opinion and it can be done easily and extremely inexpensively.
Here is what you will need.
Everything pretty much is from Ikea and the Dollar Tree.

These great napkins from Ikea.
$1.99 for a 30 pack.
Ljuda striped placemats.
$1.49 each from Ikea.

White dinner and salad plates.
$1 each from the Dollar Tree.

You will also need:
{not pictured}

Plastic fangs from the dollar store, 12 for $1.00.
Orange and black scrapbook paper.
Black goblets, mine were from a thrift store.
Plastic bugs from the Dollar Tree.
Black spray paint, or your color of choice.

Put together each place setting looks like this:

For the place card holders, spray paint the fangs your choice of color.
While they are drying, print out the names of your guests on cream card stock with black lettering.
Cut them out and glue them to a piece of coordinating orange paper cut a little bigger.
When the fangs are dry, place them on top of the napkin and add the name card.

You can or cannot add the plastic flies and beetles.

That is it! 
I believe each place setting was under $6.00, goblets included.

Happy Monday friends.

~another use for wrapping paper~{thrifty thursday}

Here's what you will need for this super easy project:

A quote, mine found here, printed on your choice of colored cardstock.
A picture frame, mine I made out of reclaimed wood.
Wrapping paper, anything that coordinates with your paper and frame.
I  purchased mine at TJ Maxx for $2.99 a roll.

Put it all together, and voila!
Thanks Adriel for the cute download.

~free is good~{our new outdoor table}

My friend recently moved and was getting rid of a wood table.
Seeing as how our outdoor table had seem better days, I hauled it home.

It had a big wood top on it that I wasn't crazy about, 
{but am saving for another project!}
  so I took that off and simply added three 8' long pieces of scaffolding wood.

I pushed our old chairs up to it and added different stools to each end
{both of which were free as well, don't you love free?}

I added a row of pumpkins to the top and some twigs for fall.
Tonight it's raining, but I am hoping tomorrow we can eat dinner outside.
