Pumpkin Patch

Have you been to a patch yet?

Well Yes, i realize they arent real pumpkin patches, but some places are really well done!!
My family, yes all 9 of us, went out on Saturday morning!!They are all around folks!! I can think of 4 just while driving through Riverview and Brandon. The one we made it to was just past Winthrop Plaza on Bloomingdale.

Yes, we bought 9 pumpkins.

Are you going to buy any pumpkins?

I found my favorite fall item!

My husband and I had a date this morning! We saw a movie and as we left I spied this little soap shoppe!!

Its the Sugar Boutique. The Soap and Candle Bakery!!

What a little treasure it is. Nestled in Regency Plaza in Brandon, Melanie sells fabulous handmade soaps and candles. This is truly an artists nest.

I bought the Apple Caramel Crunch soap cake! Actually the sweet husband bought it for me.
It reminds me of the reason why i love the season!!


Take a glance around and GO visit!!


Melanie makes her soap from Aloe and Olive oils as well as Honey and Coconut Oil.


Check it out for your self!!
