  • Cate @ Chez CateyLou

    Those closets! not fair. Thanks for linking to my blog! I LOVED your pumpkin pecan doughnut recipe!

  • Celestine

    You wouldn’t have closet envy after the exposed portions of all of your darker clothing faded from the windows. It happened to me and I’m a huge fan of black; not half black and half gray.

    Love the MCMs!!

    CAT BUS! I love Totoro! My husband is such a nerd for Studio Ghibli and it totally rubbed off on me over the years.
    Thanks for the love, girl!

    Been baking those pumpkin rolls every season. They just NEVER get old. That cream cheese frosting ……..Devine comes to mind! Happy Fall – it’s finally here in the Jerz.

    Oh my goodness…the brides throwing cats? Hilarious! (Especially the ones with commentary.) I just got married on Friday, so this was particularly funny. =)

  • Dini

    I’m TOO excited that you linked to my blog. BTW I made your Nutty Cranberry Granola for my parents when I visited Malaysia this weekend and they can’t stop eating it.
