November Faves

Hi everyone!

It seems like yesterday that I listed off my October faves and yikes! It's time for the November edition. I'm not gonna lie, this month really snuck up on me. So, with no further ado, I present to you my November heart stoppers!

These cutie patootie acorns have been around for a few years, but I am as smitten as ever. So quick and easy to make, not to mention yummy and fun to serve or give.  I make them every year!

Of course, with next month being Christmas, I am definitely giving thought to decorating, wrapping and gifting.  I love this tool box arrangement from one of my favorite brick and mortar shops a town or two over from me. My friend and shop owner, Tracy,  is a master of display and her shop is amazing!

I love breaking out the sweaters and flannel this time of year. November sees a return of cold weather in my neck of the woods, and nothing says cozy, sit by the fire (or walk in the woods) better than a red and black buffalo plaid shirt.

November 11th is Veteran's Day and it is always an honor to commemorate our country's courageous veterans. I think these boots are so cute! I have to say that they really aren't my style, but I kind of wish they were. With a pair of skinny jeans and classic white button down shirt - fun! I also like the fact they are made in Wisconsin by the makers of Muk Luks. I do own a pair of their slippers that are cute, but these are so much more fun and patriotic!

Thinking again towards Christmas, I am lucky enough to live near a pop up Lang Outlet and I always buy my Christmas cards in November a year in advance at incredible prices.  This is the card I will be sending out for 2015. This is also a Wisconsin based company.

My Baby Bluebird will be home from Virginia Tech for a few days over Thanksgiving and we are both excited to Black Friday shop. We go for the Starbucks and possibly a deal - we just love the atmosphere and bustle of the day. We finish up with a yummy lunch somewhere and then head home for a nap! 

And lastly, what I treasure the most and what I thank God for every day, being with my family on Thanksgiving! 

How about you? What is making your heart go pitty pat this month?

Thanks for stopping by,

Come party with me:


  1. This month really starts the baking for me and buying christmas presents for everyone. Love walking through the leaves and bonfires at night.

  2. Funny you are get the winter gear out and we are putting ours away.

  3. What a nice post and a perfect ending picture. I love the smell of woodsmoke coming out of chimneys..and planning my Thanksgiving dinner. I LOVE the cards you picked. I have always loved Lang cards.
    Hope you have a wonderful week, Jane. xo Diana

  4. Jane where is this Lang pop up. Oh how I wish we had one close. I love those cards they are so pretty. I actually just saw them at Tuesday Morning they carry a lot of Lang. Have a great new week ahead.

  5. Hi Jane! Thanks for your visit first of all! I, too, am feeling blessed that our son is coming up from Fl. for Colleen's 3rd birthday and staying for Thanksgiving!!! This could be a new tradition as her birthday is the 20th and her Daddy's is the next day. I LOVE that tool box! The boots are so cute too. Have a great day!

  6. Yes, this is the time of year to get cozy in Ohio also. Flannel shirts and cozy throws are coming out of the closets. Cute acorns and I love the Christmas card you chose - so pretty. How does your daughter like Virginia Tech? It's one of the colleges that my son is considering.

  7. Those acorns are adorable! My Christmas cards are done, which really does take some of the pressure off!

  8. I must try those Hersheys yummies! And yes, plaid and checks are a must for the season! Your daughter, your whole family is gorgeous Jane!

  9. You look so pretty in the family picture. :)

  10. Lang cards and Lang calendars are the best. They are so artfully designed.
