About this syrup:

This pumpkin spice syrup is sweet, flavourful and tastes just like fall! It’s made with real pumpkin purée, brown sugar, water, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and vanilla. So good! You will notice that this syrup is has a bit of a grit to it, but that’s just because it’s made with real ingredients (the spices don’t dissolve so they leave a bit of texture in the syrup). If you don’t like the grit, you can strain it out with a fine mesh strainer.

Can we talk about this mug?

Over the last few years I have developed a love of thrifting for dishes. It all started when my daughter asked me to come along with her on a thrifting trip and I immediately headed over to the dishes. And since then I check in every once in a while to see what treasures I can find…I’m always/especially looking for vintage dishes and pottery. I’ve been lucky enough to find a beautiful set of dinnerware, some gorgeous wooden bowls and more recently I found these mugs! When I first saw them, I just knew they were special. And sure enough, after looking the name up, I discovered that they were made by a potter from St. Jerome, Quebec, Canada. They are Canadian Art Pottery “Tundra” made by Laurentian Pottery, said to be founded in 1939, but I think these particular mugs are from the 70’s. Aren’t they so unique and pretty?!

Now that you have this delicious syrup, you can use it to make a pumpkin spice drink right at home! If you have an espresso machine, make a latte, stir in some syrup (amount depends on how sweet you want it), then top with whipped cream! YUM! Or stir some into a coffee, add a little cream.
