Dinner in a Pumpkin!

This is a comfort food for sure! Dinner in a Pumpkin! 
When our children were growing up, before Trick or Treating we ate Dinner in a Pumpkin, along with some yummy Apple Cider. If you are in a for something new, try this recipe I posted 2 years ago...on my sidebar to the left!

Always Enough Eggs!

Even with just 2 hens in our little flock, we always have enough eggs! We look forward to each morning of clucking and joyful announcements when one has laid her egg.

Their eggs range from large to x-large!
WooHoo!
Just had to show off my girls with you!

My New Love, Chalk Paint by Annie Solan!

On Saturday I went to a wonderful boutique called "An Affaire at the Barn" by Pikin' Chixs in Menifee, CA. What fun! I hope to be a vender there in February!  It was held in a beautiful huge old barn filled with talented crafters. 
Sharon did a wonderful job pulling this "Affarie" together!

There is where I found my new love, Chalk Paint by Annie Solan! 
A darling So. CA Stockist Andrea Young of Chalk Paint showed me that I cannot live without it (she didn't say that)! She is my new best friend! YOU CAN BUY CHALK PAINT FROM HER. (click on Andrea's name).

I learned that you DO NOT have to prime or prepare, just clean your piece of furniture and start painting! My kind of thing, EASY! After you paint, you put Soft Wax on it, then buff it to a nice sheen. I am hooked.
 I bought this wall adornment at the Barn! 
It is made out of a old headboard. It is large and very heavy. It is 5 feet x 2 1/2 feet. It will go on my dining room wall. I will take a pic of it when hubby hangs it this week!
It is painted with Chalk Paint! :0
I love that it says FAMILY.
The Chalk Paint comes in so many beautiful colors! 
I have lots of plans for the house! LOL!
 Check out Miss Mustard Seed. She uses Chalk Paint in lots of her projects!

Have a wonderful week!
