pumpkins and red velvet

i was chatting with my friend jessica today about favorite recipes. i thought with the holidays coming up, this would be a good time to post my 2 favorite dessert recipes.

the first is a 4 layer pumpkin cake from kraft. this is so easy to make and the frosting is so light that you don't feel like you are slipping into a sugar coma with your first bite. it is quickly becoming a holiday tradition. i have never been a fan of pumpkin pie and this is the perfect replacement. even my cynical brother (wink wink) approves.

the second dessert is a party table favorite. red velvet cake balls from bakerella. i have never had anything like these little balls, they are so delicious. plus their size is reminiscent of candy bar mini bites. for the holidays, you could use white chocolate and then drizzle red or green colored chocolate over the top. they are time consuming and messy, but are truly easy to make.

blue sky

here is my latest chandelier. i recently rummaged through a friend's old barn filled with long forgotten treasures and this is one of my finds. luckily, i bought a few on the same day, so more are coming your way. i absolutely love this color. i can see it in either a chocolate brown room or a bright white room. the shades are made out of amy butler fabric and cast a great blue glow when the light is on.

i just finished a great festival in newnan, ga at their monthly market days. it was wonderful hanging out around the town square and meeting a ton of new people. i hope everyone loves their purchases from Linwood Avenue.

i received a lot of requests for chandeliers of another color than the blue and cream i had. if you could dream up the best color for a chandelier, what would it be? red, brown, hot pink????? if you haven't noticed yet, i like to be different :)
