Fall always gives me such a sense of calm and I find myself reminiscing a lot. Memories or my Grandma "putting the garden to bed". Tee Pees of pole beans being drag to the pole barn to dry. Corn stalks being tied together for Fall displays and Apple Cider being pressed.
The smell of molasses cookies and the beginning of "soup season" with the first batch of Vegetable Beef going on the stove as I walked through the door at the end of a school day. Grandma and I sipping tea and eating one of the soft molasses cookies that everyone in the family remembers her baking all the time. My Grandma worked from just before sun up until lunch. After lunch she watched "Her Stories" - As The World Turns and The Young and The Restless. After they were over she would take a nap until I returned from school. AH MEMORIES!
Last week I did a bit of clean up in the yard here at the Cottage. You can always tell you've worked hard by the stains on your socks and the dirt on your legs at the end of the day. I decided to set some of the chairs that are normally on the porch in the area I cleared in the woods so we could sit out there sometimes.

Today I created these cute little beaded snowmen charms. Super easy to make and will make some wonderful additions to some Holiday projects.
