{new loves}

happy friday to you!
i haven't done my friday new loves lately, so i thought i would share some scrumptiousness that i am loving this week...pretty much everything in the fall j.crew catalog but here are some faves!
duchess bracelet
crystal cadence necklace

double cloth lady daycoat in bright cinammon (i'm in love with this yummy color)

oh and i had a request to share my pumpkin pie it is! but sadly, it's nothing gourmet, just the recipe on the back of the canned pumpkin...although this recipe has brown sugar added which sounds pretty yum!

1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 (15 ounce) can Libby's canned pumpkin
1 (12 fluid ounce) can Carnation Evaporated Milk
1 unbaked 9-inch deep dish pie pastry (4 cup volume)
1Mix sugars, salt and spices in a large bowl.
2Beat eggs in small bowl and pour into sugar/spice mixture. Empty can of pumpkin into sugar/spice mixture.
3Mix everything with a wooden spoon or a wire whip, and use a rubber spatula to incorporate all ingredients thoroughly.
4Add evaporated milk gradually and continue stirring.
5Pour into pie shell.
6Bake in preheated oven at 425 degrees F. for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F. and bake for an additional 40-45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center


  1. Thanks for the recipe...and the New Loves this are right the JCrew catalog is to die for this season!!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I always enjoy looking at JCrew (if some of their things were just a bit more price friendly)! Oh, their children's line is fab!

    Thanks for the great recipe! It's been cool and rainy here...just the perfect weather for a little pumpkin pie! P.P. is my absolute FAVORITE! Now I just need a Starbucks Spiced Pumpkin Latte!

    Have a great weekend!
