The Scoop #289

Hi everyone! By the time you are reading this, the Great American Eclipse will have ended. I hope you had a chance to safely view this once-in-a-lifetime event. Excitement is high here because we are only a few miles from totality! The next bit of excitement for me will be the arrival of fall...and in my little world, I am saying that will be on September 1st! ;-) So stay tuned for some new fall projects and ideas! In the meantime, let's get on with the party!

Eclipse Excitement at My Favorite Farm Stand

OK...I know you are wondering what the heck a farm stand has to do with the upcoming solar eclipse so I will tell you! Over the weekend, I visited the wonderful produce stand of Osage Farms in Rabun Gap, Georgia. Just look at the beautiful fruit and vegetables! Much of it comes from the field that you can see through the window in the middle shot. Talk about fresh!! My friend calls this the big produce stand in the sky because there is none to compare. We drive an hour and a half and pass several others to get here, but it's worth it! Apparently other people think so too because it's always crowded!

 Hi everyone and welcome back to The Scoop! Here...summer is officially over for us. My little grands start back to school today. However, the hot, muggy weather is still with us and will be for a while. It's too soon to bring out the pumpkins so I made my ALL-NATURAL SPICED APPLE SIMMERING POTPOURRI to bring on that feeling of early fall! I love the way the whole house smells. Now I want to see what you are sharing so let's get started!

It's too soon to pull out the pumpkins so I am sharing my secret weapon for gently transitioning into fall...apples!  I love adding them to my d├ęcor and having a hint of the smell of fresh apples in my home. So I thought I would share a few of my favorite ways to get that fall feeling with the help of some wonderful apple-y additions!
