Sharing some great Autumn Snapshots

I wanted to share a few pictures before I head out to run errands and mail packages today.  We are headed to the corn maze this weekend, so I'll have pictures to share of that on Monday.  Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Starting the afternoon long project of making nearly 20 jars of applesauce with Maria, my new daughter-in-law

Yummm....ready to can now

Jack & Smidgen keep us company while we work
Fall in my Front Yard

I love pumpkins and my sweet hubby brought me these two big ones the other day.  I have yet to get my scarecrow post planted in the ground.  This is one of the many garden beds I have been redoing.

Just a few of the body parts I had drying outside yesterday

Part of the old mantel that someone decided would be better off on the dirty old barn floor. It also has small pillars that go on the front. I am, of course, going to refinish it and put it back into the house where it belongs!

  15. Fall in your front yard is to die for. This has to be your favorite time of the year Wendy.

    Making applesauce brings back good memories for me. I used to make jar after jar and then freeze.....which would last the whole winter.

    Thanks for sharing your pictures....so much fun to see all of your projects.
