A New Chair

I thought I would show you all a new chair design Hubby is working on.  I have requested 4 of these to use with an outside table we have.  After years of use, the bench chairs we used with this table finally gave out.  I think these will look very nice.

Just a few flower pictures.  It won’t be long until these will be all gone.  I have a fall flag hanging under the goldenrod but the wind was blowing it too much for me to get a good picture of it.  You can see Shadow sitting at the stoop in the background.

As you can tell, this little arrangement is in the green swing area.

I almost pulled these up earlier in the summer because they are right in the doorway.  Every time I would go out the kitchen door, I had to walk around them.  Now I am so glad I didn’t.  I think they are very pretty and they have decided to behave and fall over in the other direction.

We went over to a friend of ours yesterday to collect some wood pieces he had that he didn’t want.  Some of it will be for burning, some will be for making toys.  Hubby usually finds all kinds of things to do with scrap wood.

That’s about it.  Not a lot going on here.  I hope you have a great day and God bless.

 

New Package

Hello everyone!  I thought I would show you all my new idea for selling the homemade laundry soap.  This is what the package looked like before

I think I like the new ones better.  I am hoping they will catch customers attention more.  We’ll see.

Well, that’s my day.  It took a little longer to sew these little packets than I first expected, plus we had to make up the laundry soap.  All our soap had sold at the Bread Basket.  Tomorrow is a big day for shoppers here in Floyd-the annual craft festival.  We wanted to make sure we had plenty of aprons and laundry soap on hand for selling.

I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

New Canner and Homemade Deodorant

This is my new canner.  I stopped at a yard sale a few weeks ago and the lady had this canner for sale.  One of the handles was missing so she sold it to me for $5.00.  Yesterday, I stopped at Farmers Supply here in Floyd to see if they could order  new handles.  I had no idea if they could or not as the canner appears to be old.  Well, they could and they only cost me $8.00.  I then went to the extension office and had them calibrate the guage.  It was off 1 and 1/2 pounds so I thought I probably should get a new guage too.  This cost $l8.00.  Amazing.  These parts will be in by Friday.  So for roughly $30.00 I got a new canner.  This one is much taller than my other ones.  It will hold 1/2 gallon jars which I plan to use for our juice that we can.

Then we went on over to Vicki’s and had a great visit.  We ate lunch together and then Vicki and I made homemade deodorant.

We used tea tree oil in the solid deodorant and lavender in the powder.  I really like it.  It smells so fresh and clean.  I am impressed.  I definitely will be making it again.

Today the girls and I are making spaghetti sauce.  This will be our last batch of spaghetti sauce.  I think the rest of the tomatoes will just be used to make tomato juice.  Our tomatoes are doing very well this year.  I think this isthe best ours have done in a long time.

I better go stir the spaghetti sauce as I do not have Mrs. Sally’s good kettle any longer.  I took it back to her Sunday.   Enjoy your day and God bless.
