This year, I have fallen in love with fall. I've driven up the canyons to see the leaves changing colors, grew pumpkins in my garden (they have taken over!), and added some new pieces to my fall decor. Even though I love my fall owl wreath a lot, I wanted to make a pumpkin wreath this year.

Read below for detailed information about the items, then enter the giveaway below.

DIY Mixing Bowl Cover

These DIY mixing bowl covers are useful in so many ways. You can cover your mixing bowl when not in use or when you put part of your cookie dough in the refrigerator between batches. These are great to cover a dish you take to a potluck. Want to keep pesky insects out of your food at a picnic? Use one of these!  The best part is you can choose any color or print that you want to use for you mixing bowl cover. In fact, you can make multiple ones for different seasons or occasions.

I love using my Kitchen Aid mixer to make black bottom cupcakes, pumpkin pie, and the tastiest mashed potatoes. What I don't love is the dust that always seems to get inside my bowl and on my utensils between uses. Sewing a mixing bowl cover is a great way to keep my items dust free.

Years ago, a friend brought me a casserole after having my oldest daughter. It was a simple rice casserole that was delicious and filling. I made sure to get the recipe from her and over the years I have tweaked the recipe a bit to fit our taste. This chicken broccoli casserole is the result of my changing a few ingredients here or there. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

This past weekend I put up my fall owl wreath and bought a few fall flowers for my porch.
