Just when I thought I was already getting sick of autumn decor, my local produce stand had these cute little white pumpkins for only 25 cents each. I wasn’t sure exactly what I would do with them, but for a buck I couldn’t pass up throwing four of them in my cart.
I already had some rocks on my windowsill, that we brought home from our trip to Michigan a few summers back. I put them in ziplock bags and use them as weights when I make sauerkraut .
I collected some pine cones and added them to my newly decorated autumn windowsill. I am such a fan of natural decor. It doesn’t have to be stored year to year and it isn’t expensive.
I have been planning to make a wreath with boxwood clippings for several weeks now, and today, while I was sitting in the garden making herb bundles with the kids, it was finally the perfect time to try it.
I love the way it turned out and I want to make several more. I will have a tutorial coming very soon.
I love when things come together so nicely, the way this windowsill did today. I had no intentions of decorating it for fall, but with a sale on mini white pumpkins, a few pretty rocks, pine cones and some boxwood clippings, the past few days just threw this little vignette straight into my lap. And I am thankful for that!

Did any of you ‘born in the 80’s’ ladies ever watch a show called “Mama’s Family” when you were a kid? I remember my sister and I watched it every night, around 9 P.M., before heading off to bed.
The show was about a hilarious, slightly dysfunctional, family with a quick-tempered mama.
They had a sweet little neighbor, Iola, who would pop over from time to time to present mama with one of her latest sewing projects.
See how we restored an antique door, that had been painted three times, to its original wood finish.

This easy pickle recipe honestly seems like a pretty sorry excuse for a blog post.
I mean really. How could anything with so few steps and ingredients ever be considered revolutionary enough to be worthy of your time, dear reader?
Well, if your garden overfloweth with cucumbers and/or you want to start incorporating more fermented vegetables into your diet, I think you will love this super simple recipe. Honestly, it has been a game changer for me with my last few cucumber harvests.
I remember a conversation a few years ago when a friend, who grew a wide variety of cut flowers in a very small space, told me why she didn’t grow tomatoes and herbs. I was curious because, at the time, growing anything but vegetables seemed like efforts wasted.
I mean you can’t actually eat flowers, my practical side reasoned.
It’s around this time every year that I become slightly obsessed with taking pictures of the flowers from my cut garden.
I love the soft colors of the cosmos I planted, and knowing they came straight from the yard just adds to the satisfaction.
I also added in some white zinnias and mint.

I was noticing the other day that there there were some great ideas across the web for adding farmhouse style to an ordinary pantry.
From shiplap, to barn doors, and open shelving with printable labels, it is very possible to add character, even if you live in a plain Jane cookie cutter house.
This realization called for a roundup post of some seriously awesome ideas to give a regular old pantry farmhouse style.
