Fall Harvest

We live on 65 acres of filbert orchards and every year we are in a dust storm for about 3 days. This year was no exception! We were able to snap a cute picture of this little guy who was more interested in having his afternoon snack than us taking his picture. Almost every year I whip up a batch of filbert roca from an old recipe my mother came across years ago. That's the first sign of the fall harvest. We live on a small hill with a beautiful view of Mt Hood and we are almost at that point where I can share some pictures of our incredible view of the mountain & the brilliant shades of red & gold that autumn has to offer...

I would like to point out one of our new additions, which is a book called, The Gathering Of Friends. The book is just gorgeous & the photos are stunning. I keep mine out just so people can view it! There couldn't be a more perfect time of year then to start thinking about your preparations for the holiday meals. Check out the chapters The Autumn Gathering & A Christmas Celebration which features a couple of cakes that won't add to your waistline! The recipes are well explained & the tablescapes are easy to create! This heirloom quality book is a treasured keepsake and would make an exquisite gift! Here's a little about it:

The Gathering Of Friends Was Created To Introduce Food As Love Language, Enhancing Traditions, Fortifying Relationships & Celebrating Life... Its unique style combines savory recipes & elegant design in 16 stunning gatherings. Each chapter will leave the readers prepared with simple recipes, original tablescape ideas, a ready to use shopping list, and inspiration to create their own 'gathering of friends'. Hardback, 209 pages, with slotted folder in back.

Here's a link if you would like to purchase one for yourself or for a gift!

The Gathering Of Friends

I have continued with my Halloween decorating this week and I'm expecting some new products in any day now to add to the ensemble. I purchased some Country Living magazines dated back to 1992 and I thought I would share these images with you. They are vintage Halloween inspired and I just love that over all effect. Mr. Ford has actually taken a liking to this decor; it is about time he came around! It's funny to think that the products we buy now will someday be vintage! We have our so called date night this weekend; I guess it is a date day where we will be venturing out in search of the greatest pumpkins! Will share the pictures of our adventure!
