Guess what I just found for sale at Michaels? Wheat! In natural, pale green and soft brown! I saw it with my own eyes!  On the shelf!

So, I decided this is the perfect time to share how I make Harvest Brooms. They are the perfect accent to celebrate the fall harvest season which is just about to begin!

We always look forward to blueberry season at the Pumpkin Patch!

This year the trip out to pick berries was even more memorable because we took along two of our favorite pals!

Glorious Soups! And a Recipe for Country Style Beet Soup



Another wonderful, nourishing soup recipe to share!

But before I get to that  - on the way to this post, I encountered two more delicious soups shared recently on two other blogs I follow!

Since it is January, and still cold and dark and rainy, my need for big hot bowls of lovely soup has not diminished!  So I made them both!

And we enjoyed them so much, I decided to pass them on to anyone who might have missed them!

Antonio's Gift - How to Make Pressed Fall Leaves Into Sparkly Ornaments

Antonio gave me these beautiful leaves the day I went to his house to teach him to make fall leaf candles.  And since they make perfect Christmas tree ornaments, I just had to share!

I love how children can teach you things you would have never thought of making or doing. We started the afternoon together making fall leaf candles.  I had also brought along red, blue and silver glitter so Antonio and his sister, Sophia, could decorate pine cones.

Using Colorful Leaves and Mod Podge to Make a Fall Wreath

I love wheat!  I love oats! and I LOVE fall leaves!  Using all three, I just finished this fall wreath for my front door.  I don't pretend to be a wreath artist!  But I am happy with the way this turned out.

What I really love about it is that since I sealed all the dried leaves in Outdoor Mod Podge, they will not wither away in a week or so - which is exactly what would happen if I used "fresh" fall leaves.  I just am not willing to put a lot of work into projects that have very short life spans!!

The wreath is very simple to make - here's how.
