SEASONAL DELIGHTS~

 Do you recall the Candy Corn flavored Oreo's I discovered at Target?..I am sad to say... they are no more...completely sold out and  I have yet  to discover them anywhere else ...but...my search for those did lead me to  these...M&M's white chocolate... candy corn coated... decadent delights...Lord have mercy these candies could do some serious damage to one's blood sugar, never mind the waistline...I purchased two bags...big mistake... the first has been devoured and the second is quietly calling my name...I need to relocate them...and soon...  
On my past few visits to Target  this friendly "Jack" pillow caught my eye. On each  visit I would pick the pillow up, wrestle with temptation, then  place the pillow back on the shelf...this week.. this cute little pillow must have jumped into my cart on it's own accord...for when I got to the checkout there it was...staring me in the face...
Now packaging is everything and it seems everywhere you go people are sneezing, coughing, and a cute box of tissues is a must...it is a need...I'm sure it will be a need sooner rather than later...same thought process with the "witch" napkins...we all need to wipe our face....some of us more than others...
 
and lastly...I did a bit of Halloween decorating...
the evenings are now cool and a cold front is headed our way... the wood box is filled and a fire has been set in the wood stove...Sadie has settled in her favorite chair and Winslow Homer's belly is full....all is well at Dog Trot Farm...

oh my, those cookies sound awesome. I haven't seen them in this part of the country, good thing! I have had those new m&m's though and they are rich, yummy..........

Kelly said...

I love the mice on the stair treads. Yes, the pillow was also a need. Ted loves white chocolate so I will keep an eye out for those m&m's.

Great pics! Love the Jack pillow.
I didn't comment on your last post, just seeing it today. What a lovely tribute to your aunt and your island community.

Kim said...

I've been looking for those Oreos since you first posted. No luck. But I bet I could find those M&M's tomorrow at Walmart.......mmmmm

We don't have a Target anywhere near us..just WM and I don't care for WM but no other options. Your fall decorations look very nice. Maybe if I get to move I can decorate again for Holidays ...no wood box here just a furnace with butane gas..kind of pricey so have lots of warm clothes handy to bundle up in :)

Love your stairway! We are heading up to the Little House at the end of the week, after we go to the wholesale markets for the shop. Can't wait to just snuggle in and enjoy the fall!

Since your last post, I've been on a mission to find those candy corn Oreos. I've visited 2 Targets, but alas, as you say, sold out! Target says they were a special promotion and they are trying to get more. They did have the chocolate with orange center but I was able to resist those. The chill came yesterday to Maryland. My husband turned the heat on this am. From AC to Heat in 24 hours! Love your fall decorations!

Farm Girl said...

It sounds so nice. Your house is always so wonderful to see.
I love the photo looking up the stairs. Enjoy your fall weather. I am so glad you won Jacques little quilt.

MTWaggin said...

We don't have the oreos here either but that is fine. My waistline is thankful. Love your decorations in your home and the stair risers are very cool!

Pix says Boo to YOU! said...
