Williams Sonoma Cookbook!

I was so excited when the mail ran today and I had this cute little package!  I hated to rip it open because it was so cute. 
But, of course I did!  I could not stand it any longer.

The anticipated unveiling.....

Then, there is was.  All so beautiful and inviting...

Just a brief flip through, I found this as a possibility for Thanksgiving...

or maybe this...

or this..???  The possibilities are now endless and I just don't know yet. 

Thank you Pat @ Gypsy Heart.  You are so sweet for sharing this cookbook with me and I am so lucky to have found you and your beautiful blog and to have won your generous giveaway!

Love and hugs!












My link up parties are all on my previous post.  I hope you will join me in one or all of them.  I've got some luck going on here!

It's Been A Long Time!

It truly seems like a long time since I felt like I had the time, motivation or something to share with you.  I have missed my blog and you all so much.  I will not bore you all with a lot of details, but I've had a busy, crazy, emotional three or four weeks going on in my life.  Things are fine now, but I have not slept well, cried at the drop of  a hat, been sad, mad, all these things wrapped into one.  It's really hard to explain without writing a book and that I may get to one of these days, but for now I'll just tell you life is once again okay.

A few weeks ago I was notified that I was loosing my storage space, rather quickly!  I have had to find the time first of all, and then go through AGAIN, throw away, give away, consign, sell items to antique dealers for nearly nothing, donate AGAIN, you name it.  It's a very difficult thing to do over and over again.  Give up all the things you have loved and cherished for most of your life!

Well, I was willing to sacrifice most anything, but there was one thing I would not give up, if I had to wrap it in a tarp and haul it in the back of my truck!  (and I'm really not kidding!)

I have lived with this antique furniture most of my life.  I was able to get most of my pieces relocated, but there was one piece I just had not had the help to relocate.  So, when I had this unexpected news, I was determined to save it.

This old cedar chest belonged to my mother before I was born.  It is battered and needs to be refinished.  I hope I will get it done one of these days! 
This four poster antique bed, I slept in as a child!

So for now, it has a space.  I just throw a little something over it to cover the uglies until I can repair it and it's a perfect spot for my Feather Your Nest decorating book along with a few other collective books.  I have not had time to really redecorate, so this will have to do for now.

I've missed you guys, although I've been trying to keep up with every one's post, I hope to be participating more now that my crisis is over!  I'm so sad :( I had edited my pictures in Picasa but for whatever reason blogger will not let me upload them, but I refused to be out done and it's getting late! so I gave in... to my unedited pictures!  I hate when that happens.
Love and hugs,  Ginger

I hope you will join me this week at:

I've Been Featured! Thank you Honey!!


I was so surprised and excited when I got home today and logged on to blogger!  Honey's Friday Potpourri Party is one of my favorite things to do every week!  I never miss it.  I hope everyone who visits me will go over and meet Honey and visit some of the most creative ladies I've ever met.  I have learned so much at this party each week and seen some of the most amazing places, decorating, delicious recipes, and met so many friends, you name it.  It's always a great time.  Thank you so much Honey for hosting this party and for featuring my little "Small Town U.S.A."!  I am always so humbled by my blogging friends.

Annual Arts & Crafts Fall Festival!

Here are a few reasons that I have not had a lot of time to make any posts for a few days!









Yes, I made all of these wreaths including several more that I obviously failed to make pictures of... plus several centerpieces.   I sold several over the weekend and only have a couple left!

We had a great time at the 31'st Annual Bardstown Arts, Crafts, and Antique Fall Festival... Of all the wonderful functions that we have downtown, this is my favorite.

Hope everyone has a happy day!

Hugs and Love, Ginger

What Fall Means To Me...

I know fall has arrived
when I hang my pumpkin face on the gate in the country.

we begin filling the fire pit up with firewood...

I look across the bottom field and the soy beans have turned brown and getting ready to be harvested...


and the field corn is drying out and turning all brown and preparing to be harvested in a few weeks...

the trees on the ridge behind the lodge are just starting to show some colors...

the ornamental grasses are at their peaks...

All these things say fall!  What does fall mean to you?

Hope you have a happy day...
Ginger
