Early Birthday Presents!

Hello from Applejack Lane!.  Next week is my birthday, but I have received a couple of early presents made by some talented friends. 

Connie made a new autumn wreath that we are enjoying on our kitchen entrance door.  The sunflowers are big and bright and make me smile when I get home...

My second early present was made by Gail and her husband Larry.  With a little help from another friend Ronda, they contacted the present owners of the farm where I grew up-Oak Grove Farm.


  Larry took part of one of the farm's fallen oak trees and made this...

Gail and Larry did not know that Dad called his property Oak Grove Farm when he signed the bowl, but he is going to add the words "Grove Farm" to the bottom.  

I have some fabulous friends, don't you agree?  Thank you!

An Autumn Mesh Wreath

Fall greetings from Applejack Lane!  Last Friday on my way back from C'ville, I stopped in Crozet to check out my niece's new mesh wreath.  She used three shades of color-yellow, orange, and green.  She added a monogram by covering a letter with burlap ribbon.  I think she did a fabulous job!


I wish I had thought of this!

Need A Favor???

Hello from Applejack Lane!  This morning the UPS man brought a package for our family reunion that is being held next weekend.  I promised to bring the favors.  So I ordered party favor wrappers from Shindigz.com. This company has lots of designs so that you can personalize any occasion.  The wrappers were fun to create, and the ordering was simple.

The labels came on a sheet...
A close-up...
Peel off and wrap around a Hershey miniature...
And eat away...

I would definitely use this company again.
