my friday five

The Cloak Pendants from Room and Board are stunning with their black slate-like porcelain shades and walnut details. Doesn’t the pair look amazing over this dining room table?

I just got these little gold, silver and bronze bowls from West Elm (only $4 each!).  They will be perfect for holiday entertaining.  I love their retro-chic look!

Speaking of entertaining, I can’t wait to try this with my holiday guests on a cold autumn night, Hot Buttered Apple Cider

A little apple brandy, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar and butter with your  toasty apple cider can’t be all bad! 

Hot Buttered Apple Cider

3 cups Calvados (apple brandy)
7 tablespoons (packed) golden brown sugar
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter
12 cups apple cider or unfiltered apple juice
3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
12 cinnamon sticks
Whole nutmeg


Bring Calvados, brown sugar, and butter to simmer in large pot over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves and butter melts. Add apple cider, lemon juice, and cinnamon sticks; bring to boil. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Rewarm before serving. Ladle cider mixture into 12 cups. Add 1 cinnamon stick from pot to each. Grate nutmeg over and serve. (12 SERVINGS)

A few cheerful mums are 
all it takes to liven up a room! 
I got these at Trader Joe’s.

Love this long bob, 
what they are now calling the lob.

ciao! fabiana
