Time for a Fall Giveaway - Palmetto Wicks Candles

Hope you all had a great weekend. I thought it would be a great time for a giveaway for some Autumn scented candles. Sound okay? I just recently started a small hand-poured soy candle business and am so excited about it. So far, I have had some great luck in having them sell by retail in some stores near where I live. I want to be different with this giveaway. Instead of just one winner, I am going to select two winners! The first winner will receive two candles; one 8 ounce tin of either Harvest Apple,  Pumpkin Souffle or Lavender and also one mason jar style of either Harvest Apple or Pumpkin Souffle. Second winner will receive one 8 ounce tin of either: Pumpkin Souffle, Harvest Apple or Lavender. All you have to do to enter is the following: Be a follower of Coastal Cottage Dreams, please leave separate message. Advertise about this giveaway on your blog for a extra chance.  Please leave separate comment letting me know.

Also, candles can be ordered from me if you are interested.  Please email me at

Thanks and best of luck. I will choose the two winners on Friday, November 2 at 5:00 pm EST. Thanks for visiting.

Asheville Bed and Breakfast Getaway

Hi There,

I am back from my Asheville getaway....a perfect place to visit and enjoy the outdoors!! We stayed at The Beaufort House Inn to celebrate our anniversary. It is located 2 miles from the Biltmore and in walking distance to downtown Asheville. Each morning, the innkeepers prepared a wonderful 2 course gourmet breakfast. The first morning, we had lemon cup with fresh strawberries served hot with whipped cream and strawberries. It reminded me of a lemon souffle and was so delicious!  The second course served was homemade apple crepes served with warm Maple syrup.

The Victorian home was built in 1894 and was once the home of actor Charlton Heston. There are 11 rooms within the home, however towards the back of the property, a carriage home housed four separate cottages where we stayed. At nights, the inn served their guests coffee, tea, wine which were enjoyed on their wrap-around porch complete with rocking chairs and swings. Here are some photos that I wanted to share of the Beaufort House.

Love the red knobs on the commercial stainless steel stove and adore those red cabinets too!

Water Hyacinth Basket and Some Pumpkins

Recently, I found a beautiful water hyacinth basket for only $20.  I know that I received a great deal on this since I have been looking for them for quite some time.  The size is just perfect and I love the two handles on the sides of the basket.  The basket can be used for so many things. During the holiday season, I am going to add greens and berries to it!

I love the array of colors in my penny rug

Also I wanted to share some more photos of pumpkins around my home.

Hope you have a wonderful week.  Thanks for visiting!

Yummy Pumpkin Crunch Bars

I love baking in the fall especially desserts.  This is a dessert that I first had at the Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah (my favorite bakery if you do not already know, Ha!).  It is perfect for the fall weather.

I made homemade whipped cream also!!!  YUM!

This is such a easy crust to prepare.....

Baked crust, it tastes and reminds me of my butter cookie recipe

Pumpkin batter to layer over the prepared crust

Recipe can be found here.

Happy Fall to you!  Thanks for visiting!
