Oh, my goodness, I'm sorry to all the other people who've entered, but I MUST have that pillow! It is just TOO cool. I've already made myself sick on candy corn this year (NO discipline!). That would be a year-round deco at my house!!

LOL! Oh, yeah, you actually asked a question, didn't you? My favorite is pumpkin anything. Particularly pie, but pumpkin custard, pumpkin bread pudding, pumpkin soup... Bring it on! (And I'll have candy corn for dessert!!)
