Our favorite finds from the internet this past week.

Dot (AtticAndBarnTreasures.com) – Sooooooo many commercials advertising the yummy goodness of pumpkin spiced everything! Coffee, cakes, doughnuts, creamer, pies (of course!) and even sausage seem to be injected/lathered/glazed or dipped in “pumpkin spice”. So exactly what is it? Here is one recipe – make some for yourself and go wild!

JayDee (ThirdShiftVintage.com) – Do you decorate your home according to your star sign? I’m a Libra, and I have to say, this article seems to have my style figured out perfectly. How about you?

Laurie (NextStageVintage.com) –  Can you fill in the blanks in this advertising jingle?

“Oh it takes _____, _____, _____ to make a _____ernutter; Marshmallow _____ and lots of peanut butter.”

If you can, you better get yourself over to the Union Square in Somerville, MA today for the What the Fluff? Festival, celebrating the 100th anniversary of Marshmallow Fluff at the place it was born. You won’t be alone, anticipated attendance is 15,000 people. Wow!

Linda (SelectiveSalvage.com) I am a voracious reader and always enjoy coming across a new expression or unfamiliar word. In this case, the expression was “salad days”. When I looked it up, I found its definition and a few more that were new in “Delightful Definitions – 8 Words and Definitions We Should Use Again.”  I hope reading it makes you feel as gruntled as it did me. 

Mary Ellen (AuntHattiesAtticVintage.com) I am never jaded by the spectacular annual displays of fall foliage. I love it when leaf peepers stop their cars on our small town common and run to the brightest Maple tree to gather some leaves and to pose for pictures. Here’s why you might want to visit New England or even treat yourselves as we do the the full fire of autumn. Fall Foliage in New England –  

Pam (VintageRenude.com) – If you have ever wondered what it would be like to travel the high seas on a cargo ship, you have to watch this amazing video time-lapse of a 30 day journey of a cargo ship. It’s truly fascinating.

Tina (GirlPickers.com) –  A primitive dugout canoe washed ashore during Hurricane Irma on the north side of Cocoa, Florida.  Thankfully, the canoe was turned over to the Florida Division of Historical Resources to determine its origin and age.

  1. @Dot — Great DIY recipe. I’ve put it in my file.

    @JD — Leo doesn’t even come close to my style. Hmmm

    @Laurie — You’ll have to tell us what the jingle is. Now I’m curious.

    @Linda — That definition was far from the mouth-watering green salad filled with all sorts of goodies that I had in mind.

    @MaryEllen — I have always dreamed of going to the New England states. I will probably need to settle for driving the Talimena National Scenic Byway in Oklahoma. I’ve heard it’s beautiful, too.

    @Tina — The canoe is amazing!

    @ Pam — I’m off to watch the cargo ship video.
