|Mom's birthday pie, last year.|
Some folks cringe here in Minnesota when the weather cools off, because we all know what's coming. Forty below & lots of snow. I, however, appreciate every colored leaf, crisp air, pumpkins, apples & scarecrows.
The Sikkink farm had an apple basket for nearly every relative that wanted one. Mom snagged me a nice chippy red one a few years back. It is my pride & joy. How can anyone love an wire basket so much?
Ben Franklin had fake apples on clearance for .25 each and I bought $8 worth.
I grow apples. I have a small orchard, that has produced a fair amount this year. Yummy!
Here is the *sweet* little craft I came up with:
I stamped the words & image using Close To My Heart products. I colored the apples in with pencils. Then, I created a burlap bow. You'll be seeing more burlap projects in the future!
And how about that chair? ................................
I paid $5 last weekend for it at a flea market style store. The clincher was when he told me it came out of the Mora High School band room! I love it when something has "history". This poor chair has the top left corner wired together. I think it looks so cute, that gives it character! Would YOU have bought it???
