'All manner of pleasant fruits...'

Happy October!

I've been going through my 'scraps' bag and thought: when you find scraps, make strawberries!'

Here they are 

I filled a bowl with some new pineapple melts - they smell so sweet!

On the sunny side of our house we have a wild dog rose bush growing and I was able to gather some of the hips.  They look quite well in my little firkin, which I brought home from our trip.

From other scraps I made a little stump doll just perfect for this shelf... dressed in tones of autumn...

October has started off so well .The weather today was sunny and warm - lovely to be outdoors!
I'm delaying putting out my fall decorations because DH is busy repainting but he's been working hard and id nearly finished and then I can drag out the boxes and see those pumpkins again!

Just wanted to share this verse with you from my Bible reading today as it seems to fit in:
'At our gate are all manner of pleasant fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee...'
Song of Songs 7.13

Blessings to each!

  5. I was wondering what you had brought home from your trip! I love the firkin and the hips look awesome in there. Everything you made is so cute and I love the verse you shared. Can't wait to see all of your fall things when you get them out.
