Today Mark and I are off to visit my sister’s church near Harrisburg for the annual fall festival. There will be loads of fall sweets and savories (I’ve been watching Downton Abbey this evening – ha, ha!). My niece says the chicken corn soup is the best she’s ever had, and I can’t wait to give my opinion! I haven’t shared a few of my favorite things in a while, but several things caught my eye this week and I wanted to share them with you! Here are A Few of my Favorite Things for this week.

Have you heard about the new Magnolia Hearth and Hand collection for Target? I’m so excited! And, I got an email this week from Target with a sneak peek at the collection! I absolutely love it! JoAnna Gaines does not disappoint! The colors of the Christmas collection are exactly the colors I am planning for my Christmas decor! So, I’ve already made a list from the preview email of things I want to get! I thought you might like to see the preview too! You can see the collection HERE.
You know that I love the look of a fiddle leaf fig plant. I have two right now that I’m desperately trying to keep alive! They are failing to thrive and I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. I’m going to try moving them to new locations to see if that helps. I’ve seen some faux fiddle leaf fig plants, but most are really expensive. Like this one from Pottery Barn for $299. It’s large at 7 ft. I saw it in person at the local Pottery Barn Outlet, but even the outlet price was way too steep for me! But, then I heard about this one from QVC. It’s 5 ft. and sells for $56! Other bloggers have recommended this one highly and I’ve waited months for it to come back in stock. I ordered one earlier this week, and I’m anxious to get it and review it for you! So far I’ve purchased three live fiddle leaf fig plants – one was $45 (which I killed!) and the other two were smaller and less expensive at $19 each (those two are the ones that aren’t growing). So, if this faux one looks realistic, I think $56 is a good buy – especially for those of us who don’t have green thumbs!
This week both Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore forecast the Color of the Year for 2018. Both are bold choices and not really my style. But, I thought you might like to see them!
Here’s Sherwin Williams 2018 Color of the Year – Oceanside.
Here’s Benjamin Moore’s 2018 Color of the Year – Caliente.
This isn’t a new idea, but I really like it. Halve a pumpkin, clean it out, fill with bird seed, and hang it in a tree for the birds! Get the full tutorial HERE.

Finally, do you love the scent of Fall! Me too! My blogging friend, Yvonne, has the best Fall Simmering Potpourri. You can find her recipe HERE.
Thanks for stopping in to see a few of my favorite things for this week! Have a great weekend!
