It must be Autumn, there was a bake sale this weekend for our Women's Club. My contribution in part was
lemon or pumpkin flavored muddy buddies in jars that I covered in the cozies I've been crocheting.
I found this great stamp this summer and knew it would be a perfect fit for all things that you can put in canning jars. I liked the chalkboard effect of white ink on black paper.
We also had a mini ministry fair and were able to show our service projects.
All of our Guilds depend on the profits from these bake sales to fund our service projects and other donations we make through the year to worthwhile causes.
We were up at the crack of dawn to go back to the bake sale. A soft mist made the neighborhood look magical.
I really love this time of year and especially enjoy when the honey locusts in front of our home drop their tiny yellow leaves. Impossible to sweep up, I liken it to rounding up butterflies. They fall gently in little showers.
The rewards of early rising...we garbage picked this chandelier from a garbage pile in front of our neighbors house. (This guy, the most loving enabler. I've turned him into a junker!) Thanks honey!
The rest of our day was spent baking, yes more baking. This time for our dear Charlotte who requested pumpkin cheesecake for her birthday cake. Everyone really enjoyed it. I passed on the cheesecake for a second Golabki, Polish stuffed cabbage. We call them gowoompki. That was also a special request from our birthday girl. The house smelled very Polish homey. I used to complain about the smell of cabbage cooking when I was young. My Mom would say, "Someday you will like the smell because it will remind you of me", and it does. Sigh... So great having Jon and Charlotte and Elizabeth with us for dinner, and for a Face Time session with Mikey. To hear my son's laugh is music to this old Mom's ears.
Hope you had a great weekend and have a happy and productive week ahead. Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your kind comments. Enjoy this beautiful day my friends.
