10 Breakfasts On The Go!

orange banana breakfast cookies recipe fi

I thought I would take a break from all the fall decor and talk breakfast. When I shared my recipe for Apple Breakfast Muffins, I confessed that I wasn't a very good breakfast maker when my kids were home. Since then I have learned a lot and if I could have a do-over, I think I would make healthier, home-made breakfasts. Of course there aren't any do-overs when it comes to child-rearing...so I'm sharing my … [Read more...]

DIY Galvanized Wash Tub Planters

diy galvanized wash tub planter fi

When I shared my fall front porch, I showed you a pair of DIY galvanized wash tub planters that were new additions flanking my door. I have been thinking about replacing the tall black planters for a while, but had a hard time finding exactly what I wanted...mostly because I wasn't really sure what that was! In the end I got two vintage wash tubs and I love them. They are a completely different look from … [Read more...]

Fall Home Tour | On Sutton Place

Even after almost 4 years of blogging, there are still some things I have never done. Things I've been meaning to do but for one reason or another they just have not happened. When I received an invitation from Melissa at Daisy Mae Belle and Sonya from At Home With the Barkers to join their Welcome Fall Home Tour, I said yes right away. I have always wanted to have a Fall Home Tour on my blog. Now I do and … [Read more...]

Fall Porch Decor Ideas

Fall Porch Decor Ideas | from On Sutton Place

One of the best things about an outdoor space is being able to usher in a new season by switching out the decor. My outdoor spaces aren't big or weather- proof...but I love to bring a bit of the indoors out and cozy them up with fabrics, plants and accessories. I don't worry if something gets wet because eventually it dries out. Nothing has ever blown away or been stolen. I try to use what I already have … [Read more...]

Pumpkin Parfait Recipe

Pumpkin Parfaits | A Recipe from On Sutton Place

Have I got a dessert for you! This Pumpkin Parfait recipe is a combination of ginger snap goodness and pumpkin cheesecake. It's the perfect make-ahead dish too. It actually tasted better the second day. I made individual servings in 8 oz. wide mouth ball jars but you could easily do this in a larger dish and serve pieces. Another idea is to make smaller individual servings in 4 oz. ball jars.  I … [Read more...]

8 DIY Burlap Projects Anyone Can Do! | A Collection of Tutorials from On Sutton Place

Thank you for popping in and taking a look at my burlap projects. I have said many times before that even though I didn't hop on the burlap band wagon right away, I love it now. The two best things about it are the price (it's cheap) and the neutral color. Basically you can afford to make anything and it goes with anything! Before we get to the projects here is a tutorial for How To Wash, Dry and Cut … [Read more...]
