Happy Friday, friends! I hope it’s been a pleasant and productive week for you. It’s been a busy one around here but I still made time to peruse the web and find plenty of inspiration to share with you. I’ve rounded up ideas for fall decor, a yummy recipe, a tutorial you’ll appreciate, a dreamy little house, and a big birthday celebration. Read on to see it all.

I’m cursed with a sweet tooth and love to bake so when I saw these skillet recipes from Southern Living I was smitten. And I LOVE these cute little skillets. I’ve made skillet brownies before and can’t wait to try these. Have you ever made skillet cookies?  Get these recipes here.

Anderson + Grant

Jamie at Anderson + Grant shares a tutorial on how to make these pretty painted ampersands. You won’t believe how easy and affordable they are. Go here for the how to.

Hwitt Blog

Isn’t this the cutest little house? It’s actually a bath house way over in Sweden, but the beauty of it knows no boundaries. To see more beautiful photography like this, visit Titti’s blog here.

Driven by Decor

I’m starting to see fall decorating ideas all over the place and this place setting from driven by decor caught my eye. I love the natural elements, the textures, and the simplicity of it all. She’s got much more fall inspiration here.

Pumpkins, Apples, Hayrides Sign

Did I mention fall? I was browsing over on etsy a couple of days ago and stumbled across this adorable sign. Wouldn’t it be fun out on a porch or in a kitchen? Find it here.

H2O Bungalow

Yes, more fall stuff here. But isn’t this DIY birch covered candle gorgeous? Wendi at H2O Bungalow made it and has the full tutorial here.

Friends of the Smokies

And last but certainly not least, yesterday was the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. We’re just a short drive from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and go there as often as we can to hike and take in the scenery. There are so many wonderful parks and sites acrosss the country and they’re available for everyone to enjoy. Do you have a favorite national park that you’ve visited or want to visit? Let me know in the comments below.

That’s it for this week’s Friday favorites. If you have a great project or recipe or photo that you’d like featured, shoot me an email or leave a comment below. You might just be featured next week!
