Creative Bloggers Of The Week #6

Donna over at The Decorated House really knows how to deck her home out in style for fall and Halloween. 

I think if I walked through there at night and saw that spider I might just forget it isn't real.

Amy at The Blissful Bee makes her porch very inviting for neighbors passing by to climb the steps and sit a spell.

Of course you know I'd have to stop just to gaze at those pretty red rocking chairs.

Melinda at The Refeathered Roost caught my attention with the vintage "ornaments" on her Halloween tree.

And I do think it's extra pretty on top of that mirrored piece. (Those are growing on me!)

Linda at It All Started With Paint has raised the rung on her Halloween decorating. Now her indoors is just as scary as her outdoors.

That clever girl even made some gold dryer vent pumpkins for her black crows to perch on. 

Well, after all that I'm a bit thirsty. How about let's go over to Simply Suzanne's Simply Suzannes At Home and ask her to make us one of these caramel pumpkin drinks that look absolutely delicious?

If you're a bit rushed, I copied the recipe so you can make it later. The whole family will want one of these.

4 cups whole milk
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
caramel sauce, home made or store bought
Garnish with whipped cream & pumpkin pie spice  
. . . and toffee bits, if you have them!
In a large saucepan, combine milk, pumpkin, condensed milk, and pumpkin pie spice, whisking well. 
Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. 
Drizzle caramel around the rim of the glass or mug. Ladle into mugs. 
Garnish with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice, if desired. 
Serve immediately.
