Friday Five

1. Honey Cake

Marvin likes this Honey Cake, a traditional Jewish recipe used for Yom Kippur. This year I made it for him using his own honey.  Frankly, this cake does not tempt me. It is very spicy and dense.I told Marvin it needed some fruit and nuts in it.:)

2. A Boy and his trucks.

The city of Bluff Park had a Touch a Truck event over the weekend. Our Elliott loves all vehicles so this was right up his alley.

3. A photo from Cousin Scott.

Scott took this photo one morning this week as the moon was setting. The Murray County Courthouse is really beautiful any time but this picture is so nice. I am using it as my screen saver this week.

4.  A Fall Vignette

Blue and Orange look so good together. The little bird was picked up at the Acoma Indian Reservation in Albuquerque when we visited there several years ago. The old spools were a gift from a special friend. I made the wooden pumpkins at MOPs when I was a mentor.

5. Fall Mix

I made a Lock and Lock full of this fall mix for our trip to Savannah. Equal amounts of peanuts, Candy Corn and M&Ms.

The courthouse is a beautiful bldg, for sure. Boys and trucks! Love the fall mix and hope to make something similar soon. Have a good Friday.

Elliot is adorable and Grammie has bought Tucker a truck for his birthday:)
That moon picture is gorgeous. I took one the other night on the water, but mine doesn't look nearly that good. I am not a photographer.
Orange and blue do look good together....

That is a beautiful picture from Cousin Scott, could be a postcard! My youngest daughter loves candy corn, I am going to share this trail mix with her. I know she will love. Elliot is so precious, you can tell he loves being on the step of that truck. I like the orange and blue, I might try a tablescape using those colors.

Your cousin does outstanding work. Such a gorgeous shot of the courthouse.
I remember Karen's sons loving the fire trucks!
The snack mix looks delicious.
Wishing you a very nice weekend.

Cousin Scott is so talented! I always love his photos.
Elliot looks happy!

What a fun post! I wouldn't go for honey cake either. I like honey in moderation, but really don't care for it in baked goods.

Your fall mix looks scrumptious. And all of the photos were so much fun to see.

Have a great weekend!

Your fall mix looks mighty tasty, Arlene! I will have to file that away for the future. The honey cake looks super.
