Welcome to Week 37
The Cowgirl Up! Link Party!
1 Party, 4 Blogs

Your Host this week is . . .
Linsey at The Farmhouse Porch

***Warning***I am about to shamelessly self promote my new little ETSY shop. If you wish you may scroll straight down to the party and avoid my commercial. I will keep it super short though, promise.

I am so excited to announce the opening of The Farmhouse Porch ETSY shop

I've got my original oil paintings AND old shabby, farmhouse-y things for sale. 
I would be honored for you to stop by.

Click HERE to see it!

OK, let's get moving right along to the Cowgirl Up party

 First up--- thank you to everyone who entered our Giveaway last week, 
sponsored by Appliance Online
And the winner of the $50 gift card to is 
who left her party comment over at  the Farmhouse Porch. 
Teresa- be on the look-out for an email about how to claim your prize!

My picks from last week's party are...

Homemade pumpkin dog treats by What We Keep. With the price of dog treats being more than I spend on human treats, this recipe is probably healthier for the pup and the pocketbook than store bought!

I really enjoyed looking at the vintage Girl Scout patches shared by Organized Clutter. I just completed training to be a Girl Scout leader this week, and I still have all of my pins and badges from scouting. Fun! 

Vintage Charm by Mimi shared this beautiful shabby bench transformation

Small Home Big Start tempted my tastebuds with this  (lower calorie) crustless pumpkin Pie with Streusel Topping

The The Loud Silence revealed her beautifully refinished buffet. I love it!

And for the grand finale, a kitchen tour by White Lace Cottage,  I am such a fan of her shabby farmhouse style!

Let's see whut-cha got!

So many thanks to those of you who have added me to your favorites list. I'm a busy bee this week! I went through half of the Cowgirl up! links last night and I plan on going through the other half tonight. So much to see and do and write and photograph (and cook, tend, clean, sort...)

Life is busy, but good.

Lazy Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars

Howdy-do little punkins!

Our first cold snap blew in last night and it is absolutely heavenly. I love love LOVE the fall. And now, it finally feels like fall here in Texas. 

We have company coming for dinner tonight. This is good. Because if I were left alone with these sweet autumn treats I'd be in trouble.
 My husband offered to cook dinner...YIPEE! So I figured I could at least whip up an easy dessert.  I couldn't resist trying the Betty Crocker Pumpkin Bar mix. They turned out deee-lish! These will be "the bees knees" with a cup of creamy hot decaf coffee tonight.

"Just around the corner...
there's a rainbow in the sky...

So let's have another cup of coffee...
and let's eat another piece of pie."

Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Here's what I used:

1 package Betty Crocker Pumpkin Bars

1.5 cups cream cheese frosting

Sparkle sugar granules for garnish, chopped nuts would be good too I reckon'.

I hope you all are having a wonderful chili eatin', football watchin', sweater wearin' weekend!

Welcome to Week 35
The Cowgirl Up! Link Party!

You Host this week is . . .
Anita @ Cedar Hill Ranch
Well, I'm finally sitting on the back porch with my feet up.   Fall has arrived.  While most of the country is thinking of closing up their porches soon, here in Texas the porch season has just begun.  We'll be living outdoors from now until late June.  I am so looking forward to firing up the grill, sitting around the fire pit with cider and s'mores, and napping by the creek.  My daughter and I hauled a daybed the 1/4 mi trek down to the creek deck so we could nap down there.  Oh yeah, we're weird that way.  (Pictures coming soon.) Onto the party.
This week I was delighted that my dear friend Christie at Three Pixie Lane linked up her kitchen remodel.  She's been working on this for a long time, and the results are in; it's gorgeous!
City Farmhouse made these darling silhouette pumpkins, adorable!

Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson added this pop of wow on her front porch
Fleaing France shared some treasure from the brocante. Did I mention she lives in France, and sells her treasures online here?

A Cozy Place Called Home, formerly Cozy Home Scenes decorated her mantle for Fall

Sky Blu Pink made these custom window signs.

And I love, love this sign made by Blue Roof Cabin, that I am going to make when A. I have time and B. am brave enough.
