Orange You Glad It's Pumpkin Spice Season?

When the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color is orange, it's hard to resist making puns based on that hue!

I like pumpkin spice flavoring, but its use does seem to have gotten a bit out of hand in the last couple of years.  I try to have at least one Pumpkin Spice Latte' before they disappear for the season, but other pumpkin spice treats seem to elude me.  What's your favorite specialty pumpkin spice treat?

I whipped up this little pumpkin spice Burgoyne Surrounded this week.  

The happy, scrappy house blocks continued to call my name this week, too.  
I made four new house blocks to bring my total to 49.  Last night I started sewing all the blocks together, so it won't be long until I'm on to the next step on this quilt journey: a border full of words.

We're hanging out at our camp this weekend.  The weather is not at all autumnal, so the dogs are still enjoying their doggie pool.
Here's Bailey, cooling off after a hard morning of Chase the Tennis Ball.

I'm linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge today - looking forward to seeing more pumpkin spice er, orange inspiration!

  1. Love the additional houses. That block looks wonderful in orange... ok, I know I say that every month but every month I am amazed at how good it looks in different colors!
    I stick to plain coffee and only a touch of vanilla if I am in the mood. I prefer my pumpkin spice in the pumpkin pudding my kids love... although I will try a pumpkin spice ginger snap cookie sometime this weekend.

  4. How about pumpkin yogurt? I was actually surprised to find out that I like it when I first tried it a year ago or so. Now I look forward to it! Love the Burgoyne Surrounded block in orange - it is so happy - as are your houses, too!

  12. Here in Salt Lake, we are having very cold, rainy weather. But next week is slated to warm back up, thankfully. I adore your little houses - they are on my ever-growing bucket list. I may live to be 126 at this rate.... and the Burgoyne block is superb, as always!

  13. All of our blocks look great. I enjoy pumpkin spice latte's also and agree that the flavor being OVER used these days. Some things just aren't supposed to be pumpkin spiced.
