Can ya dig it!!!


We were out to eat last night for Kaitlin's birthday and Sim and Kaitlin both tell me it might freeze overnight! So when I got home I jetted outside before it got dark and picked tomatoes!! I canned some today and will finish tomorrow. I had fun and it was such a Fall thing. I even made chili. It was yummo!

The shelf where the two jars of tomatoes are siting is my hallway that Sim is remodeling for me! It is made from barn wood and the furnace is behind it. I have never had a pantry before and he is making the closet into one for me!! I am so excited and can't wait for it to be done. He will be painting it too. It is a color called Cork board, it is going from green to a brown. These are some old signs and license plates he put on there! Love me some rust!! LOL

Meet "NutMeg" my newest Pigg Doll!! She is very grubby and smells yummy! I put nutmeg in her special coffee/spice mixture. I love everything about her. I am making more pumpkins and another Pigg Doll can't wait to get her done.

Yesterday was My Baby Girl Kaitlin's birthday. She is 22 now. She just got her license as a GISD special needs bus driver. So my cuzin who is a Wilton teacher at JoAnnn Fabrics made her this awesome Bus Cake. She even put her bus #86 on it. Ok as you can see the bus looks like it is slipping off. I was the one that transported the cake home. It got hot in my car and when I picked up the box it was in it slid into the box. It even looked like it had a flat tire! Don't laugh at me cuz things like that always happen to me!! BUT Kaitlin loved it anyways! She took it with her over to her Dads for her b-day dinner, cuz Kaitlin and her Dad are both bus drivers for GISD. The only father/daughter bus drivers for GISD!! 

Well that's pretty much what I have been up to. Keepin busy and creating!!
XOXO Love ya, Fran.
