Little Things

Hello everyone. Today is the first day of Fall and I can smell it in the air.
I wanted to share with you guys a few "little things" that I have done here around the house.

This is a picture in my dining room of a little fall decoration that I did.I went to the Dollar store and retrieved a few of these pumpkins. And I also bought the berries from there.(By the way can anyone tell me if I can buy "Sweet annie" and "bittersweet" from around here?)

And this is a pic of a few canning projects that I completed. There is peach halves,peach preserves,canned tomatoes,hot pepper jelly,blackberry syrup,pickled green tomatoes,salsa,peach butter and I also froze some green beans and corn. I am getting ready to go into my "apple mode" I enjoy doing these because they will be Christmas gifts for all my loved ones.

For the rest of the day I will be going out into my yard and do some sprucing up.And hopefully by this weekend I will be ready for my yard decorations.I just wanted to let you guys know how much I appreciate getting on here each day and reading a little bit of something from each one of you.Hope you all have a blessed day!!

Thanks for visiting my blog and for the sweet comments. To paint the baskets I just kind of dry brushed them with watered down paint. I used one color and then went back with a second or third and added a few highlights here and there. The teachers at school will love them for thier rooms. Your grandbabies are precious! Dawn

You have been very busy canning!

The fall decorations look nice. I am probably the last blogger out there to decorate. I only have a few things around that were in the house stashed. I still need to dig out the rest of my stuff and get busy!

Have a great day! :)

Love the picture. You sure were busy canning. I wish I would have paid attention when my Mom did it so I knew how.
