From somebody's trash to my treasure. I like to re-style & re-create what was once a cast off. Isn't that what Jesus does with us?

The First Gift

Happy Fall, Ya'll!  
I've been wanting to say that. Hee hee  
My house is so full of warm, apple fragrances. We were so blessed to go apple gleaning last weekend with our church Sunday School class. It was a blast. We could pick all the fuji's from the ground we wanted for as long as we could. My family and I went for about three hours and goodness knows how many apples we got!  
PLENTY!  With lots to share!

  My neighbor is so funny. We invited him over after our first gleaning session a couple years ago and now every year he looks forward to us giving him bags of apples. He makes apple pie filling and cans it. I haven't tried that yet. My specialty is apple dumplings and apple sauce. It all goes very quickly here! What's your favorite apple treat?
My husband loves home made apple pies with crumb toppings. I must say I am getting better with my crusts the more I try them. Dough and I just do not get along! HA!
Speaking of Fall, you know Thanksgiving is just around the corner!
Love all that yummy baked turkey and gravy and mashed potatoes. Oh Yum!! Do you have Thanksgiving at your house or somewhere else? I love hearing about people's Thankgsgiving traditions. We usually take a hike after the meal.

And of course after Thanksgiving is Christmas!
Like how I worked that in so smooth-like? hee hee  
Not to brag or anything (hee hee) but I already got my first gift of the season! Do you see it up there in that picture? 
The galvanized cup and saucer stand was at a local antique mall and I spotted it and instantly loved it. 
My sister surprised me by offering to pitch in over  half the cost for my Christmas gift. 
I was so thrilled. I've been moving it all over the dining room and kitchen. First on my blue dresser called "Cecelia" and then to the kitchen counter. Finally its landed on my buffet in the dining room. 
For how long though, I don't know. Once I find the perfect spot, then it will stay.  
But not until then. (smile)

No worries, though. I won't leave you hanging. (bigger smile) 
Enjoy the season!
