I grab a bag, some cocktail peanuts and mix up my favorite snack of the season.

This past weekend we headed east of the mountains, to my brother and sister-in-law's cabin. Now, is one of the prettiest times of the year.
The leaves have begun to the change. The mornings are chilly, and the days still warm.
Dexter loved hanging out in the woods with us too.
I don't want you to think I do nothing but play and take pictures, while everyone else sweats. Ha!
My job for the weekend - designated cook. I love feeding the hungry workers!
We're so thankful they share their place (and firewood) with us.
The entire weekend creates good times and great memories - we love it!

What better, then a sweet Victorian funeral basket to add to my collection!
I have been searching years, for something, anything, adorned with barbola that wouldn't break the bank.
Today, I'm loving the basket filled with my end of the season hydrangeas.
Hope you all are having a great week!

I especially love church cookbooks. I have found so many great recipes within these books - particularly cookies!
Pictured above, are the ones I use often. Most, were
A while ago, a friend of mine from church brought me boxes and boxes full of cookbooks. She was sorting through her personal collection, and I was lucky enough to get to go through her castaways. I still have a big box of church cookbooks to read - one of these days...

I don't have any experience canning. However, I do know, that the best canned peaches, and cherries I ever had, were canned by my hubby's Grandpa Percy.
Oh, and he could make the best homemade grape jelly in the world!
My mom never canned anything when I was growing up... "why can when you can buy it", she always says. I just shake my head.
Making homemade pickles was easy. I didn't even have to do that hot water bath thing - which was very cool!
I wish I could tell you how fabulous they taste, but I have to wait until Thanksgiving to try 'em.

I've been MIA 'cause I've been busy sewing every spare second I find.
I need lots of merchandise to fill my booth at the Come Junk With Us "Ruffles and Rust" show in October.
I'm so excited to be in the show, but a tad overwhelmed at the same time - it'll be my first show ever! Whoa!
