Claudia of Chestofdrawers has generously shared her favorite Fall recipe — pumpkin scones. Claudia is Australian, but now lives in Austria. Her blog is a treat of art, craft and travel photography. She also has this incredible Sound of Music-esq view from her kitchen, where she whips up such sugary goodness. I am going to bake these this weekend. Yum!
