She also shares her favorite pumpkin spice latte recipe: 


¼ cup pumpkin puree (I used Libby’s canned pumpkin)

1 cup milk (naturally, whole milk tastes the best but any milk will do)

½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 tablespoon sugar

Whipped cream

1 shot espresso (or 1 ounce super strong, fine ground coffee)

Mix the ¼ cup of pumpkin and 1 cup milk together. Steam until mixture is hot and has a nice, frothy texture (if you don’t have an espresso machine, just scald the ingredients in a saucepan on the stove, mixing regularly). Pour 1 shot of espresso into a coffee cup and pour the milk/pumpkin mixture on top. Mix in ½ teaspoon of the pumpkin pie spice and 1 tablespoon of sugar (sugar is optional). Mix well and top with whipped cream. The pumpkin will continually settle so keep a spoon handy. Relax and enjoy with your new Halloween pillow and a spooky show :o)

A bewitching table runner is the perfect addition to add to your decor without going over the top! This project is from  Just Treats, No Tricks.

Now that we've given you some inspiration, it's time for a giveaway! One lucky winner will receive a  fat quarter bundle of Bramblewood fabric from Moda along with a copy of Just Treats, No Tricks! Enter right here: a Rafflecopter giveaway.
