Tout It Tuesday - #26

I want to thank you all for being so understanding about my internet issues last week.  We recently switched from AT&T DSL to Comcast Internet. It was a good move for us since the much higher upload and download speeds mean that D and I can both be online and surfing the web like crazy at the same time.  Bad news was that our new box was faulty. So until we could get a new one and then get back up and running, no internet. But we are good to go now.  Let me tell you, no internet is no fun.  Thanks goodness the cable didn't go out too! :-D

With that it is time to get to the Fan Fav from 2 weeks ago.

A Flock in the City had the most popular link with her roundup
of her favorite Fall and Halloween ideas.
I love these candlesticks with the cobwebs and spiders. I think I may have to "steal" that idea. We have 2 dinner parties scheduled for October and this will be a perfect decor idea.

Tamantha, make sure to grab the Fan Fav button

I also wanted to thank everyone for coming back week after week.  It is the 26th Tout It Tuesday which means we are 1/2 year old! This also means that it is time for a giveaway! Woot! Enter to win a $25 Visa card at the end of the post.  The giveaway will run for 2 weeks to give everyone lots of time to enter!

I can't wait to see what people will be share this week and know that I will be inspired by everyone's projects and recipes.

Just a few rules/guidelines.

1. I would love it if you would follow through GFC or Bloglovin'.

2. Please do not link shops or link parties that are not related to a project, photo or recipe challenge. Everything else is accepted.

3. Linking to Claiming Our Space isn't required but I would appreciate it if you would grab my button and either display it with the post you are linking up or under your list of parties.

4. Don't forget to click on the "like" button on your favorite project or recipe so I know which one should be the week's Fan Fav.

5.  Please try to visit at least two posts for each link you submit and leave a comment. Comments make everyone happy!

With all that out of the way, let's Tout It!
