Apples, Apples and more Apples!

We've been blessed with cooler temps this weekend
which starts my mind wandering into Fall.
I know this beautiful weather will most likely give way to more warm
 or should I say downright hot days,
but couldn't help myself not to create some Fall Decor!

Apples come to mind for me when I think of fall.
Rememebering our long drives up to Apple Hill to get the wonderful fruit, cider, pastries and of course that famous Apple Hill Pie!

So with Apples on the mind I started.
These are what I came up with :)

Cinnamon Apples



Caramel Apples



Prim Star Apples



OK, OK, I know,
some pears jumped into the last one here,
but hey, Pears are Fall Fruit too!

Now you know I always make some for me and some for you....
So these can be found in my Etsy Shop and/or eBay Store,
Links are at the top of my blog ☺☺

I'm linking up with Thrifty Decor Chick
for her Fall Inspiration Linky Party

Fertilizer Friday!


Be sure to hop over to see everyone's flowers at Tootsie Time!

we've had a week of 105 - 108 temperatures,
that doesn't bode to well for plants,
especially since we've been cool for weeks prior.

We're ALL pretty wilted!

So just a few pics of the happy ones and their garden buddies.






Happy Gardening!

Great finds!

It's time for Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays over at Coastal Charm!

Once again, no time on Saturday to hit the tag sales,
but I managed to make it to some Thrift's
while I had to be in the big town of Modesto!
(yes, it may not be a big town,
but compared to Newman where I live it is!)

While the GW's proved to be uneventful,
the 2 Hope Chests I stopped at were
Da Bomb!

I fell immediately for this Freesia in the basket...gorgeous!
I also snagged some damask napkins,
a sweet white wicker basket with little pink roses all along the top,
3 single salt shakers (these will become tassels),
a petite bun basket, mini egg crate,
I love the turquoise inside this tea cup,
and those turkeys jumped up into my arms
and gobbled "take us, take us!"


I'm thinking all these sweet little Mary Englebreit Tea Pots will make cutie Tassels, the Rooster too!
This oval frame caught my eye.
Not sure what it is about frames....I have tons and don't need any more!!
 But just can't seem to resist pretty ones.
See the shiny rhinestones around it?


And last but not least, I scored these babies.
A sweet chicken wire Teapot (are you seeing a theme here?)
It will end up in one of my shops.
Not sure what to do with the black stand,
it'll go in my Treasure Pile for a future use.
I loved this faux Bay Leaf Topiary.
It's already found a new home in my Gazebo.


Remember this Candle Holder from a few weeks ago?


Shellbelle has a great suggestion.
She said to try to find a ceiling fan light shade to fit the
clips. I picked up this one at Hope Chest also...
.10!
And it fits great!  


Thanks Shellbelle!!
