And your in luck.....its for sale! Let me know if you purchase something so I can envy you. Amazing goods here!
Is this bird bowl not absolutley precious? It belongs to Cottage State of Mind, I only wish it were mine! Charming and sweet. Oatmeal is so much better now, I am sure!
Deb at Ribbonwood Cottage made this sweet candle tray using a metal muffin pan (sidenote to my mom- she loves this look!) Doesnt this just say fall, warm and coziness?
You needen't spend big bucks for a big impact. Take for example this veggie and dip tray that Creations from my Heart handmade...actually created from her heart. Precious, no? Absolutley! Using just yard sale and flea market finds, someone else's junk, truly IS a heirloom treasure.
Once again that dear Jane, over at Mamie Jane's has me enamored by her craftiness. Check out these silver creamers, and sugar jars.....made into pin cushions. I don't even sew, but I

Today is Foodie Friday, which brings me to a story I have to share about my most amazing aunts.
As a child, I always enjoyed visiting with my Grandfather's sisters, Lillian and Preston. Lillian and Preston lived together in the most quaint of cottage homes I had ever seen. They also had much of a green thumb, their tiny home was amass with blooming flowers and birds visiting heavy feeders. For me, never knowing my grandfather, they were my only link to his past and his family. Even as a very young girl, I would beg them, literally, to tell me stories about their lives. They had a way of telling, the gift really, much like my idol Ms. Katheryn Tucker Windham, with that drawl of a true southern belle, reeling you in. Their story telling was an artform. I would hang on their every word, as I gobbled up some delicious dessert that they fed me while they spoke. When they passed, I was left with many wonderful memories they had passed to me, that and recipes of delicious desserts, like Aunt Lillian's Carrot Cake.
For my Foodie Friday post, at Places and Places, I am sharing my Aunt Lillian's prized Carrot Cake. It's a secret recipe that I am sharing with you! All you have to do is click here to take you to Plates and Places.
