Festive Advancements

Check out these great pillows I got at Pier 1 yesterday, ON SALE! Festive, right?! I wouldn’t consider myself a pillow person, but these caught my eye. I thought the orange pillows looked like a pile of leaves that I could sleep on. Right now (and in the picture below) I have the brown pillows with the back facing forward, but if I turn them around, the front has white crossed ric rac. I was thinking that the brown pillows were pretty versatile & could be up year-round. What do you think?At Peir 1 I also got these napkin rings. I love shiny things, but affordable shiny things are even better. I put them over-top of my acorn & leaf napkin rings so you can still see them through the gems. Last week, for the first time ever, I made caramel apples. I love green apples dipped in caramel, but haven’t had one since 6th grade in Disney World (I remember the exact location & everything).
Here was my first not-so-messy attempt; I rolled the apples in crushed Heath bars. My dad took this picture of me enjoying my caramel apple. Talk about some "crazy eyes"!
