Something to Crow About

Dishes, Dishes, Everywhere!!!!

When will I stop?
Ok, so I have a weakness 
but I use every dish -
I don't "save" them -
I "enjoy" them.

Actually, I am not to blame for
having these adorable rooster
plates in my kitchen.

My sweet daughter found these
and thought of me.  A-h-h-h

Four different "Cocky" designs

Tuscany Rooster


I'm enjoying seeing them on my cabinet top for now.
The little bird house with the fall colors
is a gift from a friend -
she went on vacation,
I stayed home,
 watered her plants
and got this cutie.

Actually, a bird flew in the house
a couple of weeks ago and
would have enjoyed settling in here,
but we made him leave. 
WHY do those little birdies
like to roost in my wreath on the
front door?
If anyone knows how
to prevent this, please let me know.

Have a blessed day!

Stay warm.
Fall moved in today
rain, wind and chil-l-l-l-ly temperatures.
The leaves are falling
and fall is in the air.
I even received a magzine in the mail today
 with lots of Christmas
recipes and ideas
It won't be long.

Fall Fun

What's a girl to do when she's got "fall fever"?

Ya know - when  it's just too pretty to stay inside and clean?

Well, she grabs her guy and heads out to some yard sales -
and, they were all over the place
yesterday and we only hit about 10.

But, it was worth few $$ we spent "sal-ing"!!!

~ Lucky finds ~

This basket of farm fresh goodies were
found at the local Farmer's Market.
The supper table this week
will have some
fresh turnips
fresh greens
baked sweet potatoes.


Apple Pie made with apples from the local orchard.
(Girls, this is the recipe from the
September Southern Living.
Be sure to put a tray underneath
to catch the drips.)
Easy to make
and oh so good!!!

Yard Sale finds -
Pretty silver pedestal dish
(Wm. Rodgers)
and cute pewter
bunny napkin rings
I will use next spring.

Now, y'all might not call this a cloche,
but it's a cloche to me and for
one thin dime,
I'm liking it a lot!!!


And the price was right on this
pepper shaker (free) to
match the salt shaker we already have.

I can see my new "cloche" with a stack
of chocolate chip cookies underneath.

Do y'all make this stuff?
Peanuts and candy corn!
We make it every fall -
and this year we found
caramel candy corn to mix
with the chocolate candy corn.
A tasty treat.

No cookies in my kitchen today,
so the pumpkin sits pretty under my fun find.

Happy Fall Y'all

Fabulous Fall

...just loving this beautiful fall weather
we've been having the last few days. 
I'm not ready to let go of summer yet,
but the crisp mornings,
pleasant days with clear blue skies
and cool evenings
have been such a welcomed relief
from the hot days of summer.
With the change of weather,
I've had a change in my decor a bit too. 
Now, I know that comes as a big surprise!!!

I've been seeing these pieces of fruit
made from all natural materials.
I thought it would be a nice change
from the traditional pumpkins and gourds.

Peeking out from under the napkin is
another set of new dishes I couldn't resist.

Then, I found these pretty
placemats last week
"ON SALE" of course.

And then, I wanted new napkins
(see how one things calls for another)
 to tie it all together.
So, I found this cute fabric and made these.
More roosters flew into my kitchen.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

God Bless You and Yours
