october bits




I'm sitting here this evening and realizing there were a few links I wanted to share with you this month.  This month sure flew by but dang it was an emotional roller coaster for me and the upcoming holidays have me like...😐



I do have a lot of posts planned for November.  I've been invited again to do a big holiday fashion post so there is that and I am looking forward to planning my menu for Thanksgiving.  The garden is not asking much from me these days which is nice bc my energy is pretty low and the change of seasons always has that effect on me.

So here are those links...

What Instagram Influencers are paid

Best of Paris Fashion Week Street Style

Making this soon!

Which would you choose? This Old Kentucky Home or this Park Avenue Apartment?  I lean towards the apartment!

H&M is killing it for fall.  Dear reader I've succumbed to a few pieces..😲

  1. Good evening, Janet! So wonderful to see so many posts from you lately! I enjoy every one! To answer one of your questions: I lean more towards The Old Kentucky Home! One reason or two are the two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels in one of the pics! We dearly love Cavaliers & have one again now, BooBoo, whom we adopted several months ago. They are just the best dogs, so loving & sweet. The Park Ave. Apt. is lovely but a little formal for my taste. My husband was looking at the pics from Paris Fashion Week on the streets with me & we think some of those women look like they got dressed in the dark! Those outfits would never fit in in our beach town! Also love your black & white toile pillow in your living room. I love toile & have several pillows & a footstool covered in Bosporous Toile, my current favorite. As always, am sending you a big hug, dearest Janet! Katie from Huntington Beach

  2. Park Avenue for me!
    I love you posting so often and can't wait for your Thanksgiving menu.

  3. I love the pictures you post of your home - your rooms look so inviting and calm. But if I had to choose between the 2 linked homes, I'd choose the Old Kentucky Home. The extra touches that a lot of 1940s homes possess appeal to me. And I'm with Katie - the Cavaliers sealed the deal for me. They're my dream dog!

  4. Love the PFW - in a dire world there's at least such fun to be had with clothing!

  5. I would prefer the apartment - lovely! I am sure it would not look that pristine 20 minutes after we arrived, but still :)

  6. Both homes are lovely (as is yours!), but that apartment is just like my dream pad if I were a very wealthy single woman with no pets or kids (I'm not any of those things and that's all good, but if I were...). It struck me as very "cozy minimalist" in its furnishings and stylings. Gorgeous.

  7. Neither are as perfect as your cottage!!!

  8. Both homes are beautiful, though too formal for my tastes. If I had to pick one, it would be the KY home. It has a more "homey" vibe to me.

  9. Kentucky house too chintzy for my taste and the apartment lacks 'something' . Both need your'eye' Janet xx

  10. I used to be a tried and true traditional home lover and 10 years ago I would have chosen the KY home. But now that the kids are about grown, I find myself wanting cleaner lines and a more sophisticated, adult design. Plus I don't want to maintain a house anymore. I'd choose the Park Ave apartment. Now to afford the cost! :D

  11. Thank you so much for the recipe. Perfect timing as I've been looking for an apple crisp recipe to make for my son's visit next weekend. This is exactly what I was looking for and bonus—it's gluten free, since he's also sensitive to wheat.

  12. I meant to say a 'vegan' crisp recipe. 😊

  13. Thanks, Janet, I was thinking about concocting an oat-only topping to make a change from all the apple crumble I've been making with the windfalls from our neighbour's tree that land in our garden!
    I've also made your freezer cookies, which have been well received :-)

  14. both homes are lovely but i always get a feeling of peace and comfort when you post pictures of your home. the apple crisp looks yummy and might just go on my thanksgiving table.

  15. I met influencer Alicia Tinease’s partner Tom on our cook eat discover class in Tuscany. He is an influencer as well! He’s on Instagram and travels the world taking pictures of food! It turns out that he took all the photos of Jane Green’s cookbook which I bought a few years ago! He’s a talented food photographer and you could not meet a nicer more genuine fellow....he took care of me on the 20 km bike ride in Italy when I was lagging behind the speedy bikers!
    Love the fashion posts from Paris too...
    Nice to see you Janet, you look cozy in your pink top.

  16. Janet, I would take the apartment if I could steal some of the accessories from the Kentucky home! Sorry I meant to comment before on the makeover of your friend's house...you did a great job! Looking forward to more posts in November.

  17. Love the cozy nook! Ideal place to read a book with a cup of tea

  18. I Liike the Kentucky House, with perhaps a few tweaks to make it a little less crowded.

  19. Gorgeous Janet!! I love your house best.

  20. Going to be Goldilocks - KY home too busy. PA apartment too hotel-ish. Your house? Just right! xx=hb
