1 jar Stonewall Kitchen Caramel Apple Butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Cake Batter:
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
¾ cup sugar
3 eggs
1 ½ teaspoon Stonewall Kitchen Vanilla Extract
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease and flour a 10" Bundt pan.
In a small bowl, combine all of the filling ingredients. Set aside.
In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add eggs to butter and sugar, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla and beat until smooth.
Alternately, add dry ingredients and sour cream into the resulting egg mixture, beating until smooth.
Measure 1/2 cup batter and add to the filling mixture.
Pour just over 1/2 of the batter into the pan.
Make a 1" trough in the center of the batter all the way around the pan.
Spread filling through.
Cover with remaining cake batter. Smooth around top, so the filling is completely covered.
Bake for 40 minutes or until the cake begins to pull away from the edges of the pan and a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Kilim Pillows

I have been waiting for the return of these great kilim pillows and they have arrived along with beautiful kilim rugs. The colors in these pillows are so vibrant and they come in a variety of sizes. These are great thrown on a leather couch or just about anywhere. They remind me of the mountains and Taos they are so good! And that extra large bee keep is so neat made of wicker it looks like something out of an english garden. This would be neat on a large buffet or table with fall garland wrapped around it-then when Spring arrives it would look fantastic in a garden!

My Favorite Things....

Some of the things I love in this picture...this enormous clock that looks like a very old pocket watch I think it has such character and would be so neat anywhere in your home. Love this big fat square kilim ottoman and the great petite english leather club chair in the background with that chocolate brown throw and pillows that feel like mohair and a great price! Talking about gift ideas I think all three of these would be fabulous gifts for Christmas.

Christmas Shopping Ideas

I have sworn this year I will start my shopping early for Christmas that way I have time to think about specific gifts and not be rushed. Love these european trophies that have come in on top of these great large leather bound books. These cloches and large metal lanterns would be wonderful for the season filled with fresh greenery and berries.
