Welcome to the Weekly Rewind, my recap of the week with new blog posts, fresh ideas from the web, and some fun behind the scenes from the week.
Well, it’s officially Fall!! It has actually felt a little bit Fall-ish the past few days in New Hampshire. No foliage yet though!
We’ve been enjoying the last few quiet weekends before the estimated 3.4 million people descend on the state for leaf peeping! It’s funny because the entire state of NH only has a population of about 1.4 million people!!
We took a Sunday drive up “Nawwwth” last weekend to a town we hadn’t visited before, Littleton, NH. It’s a picturesque New England town with the quaint downtown & a covered bridge…you know everything that pops into your mind when you picture this part of the country.

It was a beautiful day too and we had fun walking around and exploring all the shops and scenery in the area.
This mural was so pretty on the side of a building!
In the middle of the downtown there is a Pollyanna statue in tribute to the author Eleanor H. Porter who resided in Littleton.
We finished off the day by having lunch at Schillings with a good friend of ours who has a cabin in the area.
Isn’t this cool art? My friend made it to hang in their cabin. Perfect for the rustic cabin in the woods!
Littleton is a beautiful part of the state up in the White Mountain area, you drive through Franconia to get there. This is a gorgeous part of NH for foliage drives FYI.
On The Blog
My ultimate guide to thrifting for Fall! See a bunch of fun new looks for Fall using thrift store finds. Budget-friendly and beautiful!
You have got to see how pretty this wreath turned out!! The 2023 Garden Wreath is done and hanging on the front door!
Have you seen the chopped salad trend of TikTok? People are using a veggie chopper (I have this one from Amazon).
You dice all the veggies and Italian cold cuts in the chopper, I added yellow banana pepper rings too. If you are just making a single serving after everything is chopped you can add your dressing to the container and shake it up.
People add the salad to a sub roll but we just ate it like a salad. It was yummy! The choppers are loud but weirdly satisfying!!
And to kick off Fall I made my first pot of soup for the season!! This is one of my favorite recipes…even my mushroom and spinach-hating husband eats this one because it’s so tasty! If you shop at B.Js their store-brand fresh cheese tortellini are so good!
Around The Web This Week
This month Stacy is showing us how to use plants and thrift store finds to create pretty Fall looks.
Lora is the queen of vintage shopping! She finds the coolest things and styles them in such pretty ways. This month she is sharing a mantle that she just styled for Fall.
My good friend Kim is an avid reader. She has put together a list of books that we should read this Fall. It’s so nice to curl up on a chilly Fall night with a good book! See all of Kim’s recommendations here.
OK, I love this chunky throw blanket from Target! It’s $35 and pretty long. This is the brown color but if you didn’t tell me it was brown I would say it’s green. It comes in cream and a really pretty heathered blue. I’ve been using it for a month and I really like it.
Cozy Fall Finds
Are you looking for farmhouse Fall porch inspiration? I just love how Rachel decorated this year, the rug is so pretty!!
This pumpkin project came out so cool!!! Love the technique that Wendy used!

I wrote about the Vintage Bazaar here for a sneak peek at what to expect.
