Countin' Down The Days...

September is near, and I am countin' down the days to when I can walk out my door and witness one of God's greatest gifts to us.

I snapped these last year.

He really does have the most awesome box of crayons, doesn't He?


You're welcome.

Autumn is in the air. Look real close...


I must apologize for bein' MIA lately.

My mama had knee replacement surgery on Monday so I've been busy runnin' back and forth to the hospital and now its the rehab center.

She was in a lot of pain but is doin' much better now.

I did manage to make her giggle though. I brought her some pretty flowers and bottle of 3-In-One lubricatin' oil for her new joint.

Have a great weekend folks!
God bless.

Nope, It's Not Cindy Crawford...

It's Wilhelmina the Witch.
She gets mistaken for that famous supermodel all the time because of her mole.

But I bet Ms. Crawford doesn't have a (horse) hair stickin' out of it like Wilhelmina's.

Now you can understand why Tiblow the Toad is so smitten with her "beauty."

Yep, love IS blind.

Sorry folks, there is a slight detour. Instead of them bein' offered on The Humble Arts, they will be offered on my Countryfolk Keepsakes website in two shakes of a lamb's tail.
I'll leave the light on for you and keep ya posted...

Love At Last...

Ahhhhh... Tiblow is finally in the arms of his beloved, Wilhelmina the Witch.

But he doesn't realize he is the main ingredient in her witch's brew.
She told him the black cauldron on the stove top is a toad size Jacuzzi for him.

Either love is blind or he's just a dope.

They are my offerins' for September on The Humble Arts. You have to wait a bit longer to see more of them.

But I'll keep ya posted.

My How They've Grown...

Look at my watermelons!
(That didn't sound right, did it?)

Oh well... LOOK!

Here's another one...

Ooooh! Here's a big'un.

I know many could give a rip about them and I know what you're thinkin'.
The answer is yes, my life is that borin' that I must show pics of my melons. (I'm just so proud of them!)

But it could be worse. I could show off pics of my furbaby girls too in this post.

Well now, lookie here...

Wait until tomorrow... I'm goin' to show you pics of our clothes dryin' on the line.
Woo-hoo! Get the popcorn ready!

It's So Hot...

I saw two trees fightin' over a dog.

Cows are givin' evaporated milk.

A dog was chasin' a cat and they were both walkin'.

The squirrels are handlin' their nuts with potholders.

Try to stay cool folks.

Hotter Than Blazes...

is the only way to describe our afternoon at the Madison-Bouckville Antique Show.

This place is just a hop, skip and a jump from us so we decided to mosey on over and check it out.

But the heat and humidity made it unbearable!
I brought my camera and was able to muster up enough energy to snap a few photos.

Now waaaay back (see the white tents) is where all the real good stuff was. You had to pay to get in there.

We decided to cruise up and down antique alley where vendors were set up all along the state route.

Ooooh, I loved this old civil war trunk!

Just beautiful!

Here's a dapper furry feller.

What the?? I couldn't help but giggle when I saw these.

Can ya tell I love old carriages?

Not too many folks were buyin', myself included. Prices were outrageous and I didn't dig deep enough in our couch cushions for spare change.
So we came home with only sunburns and some homemade fudge.

But the best part of the day for me was this...

Fried dough!!
(Yep, and I ate it all too.)

Please don't mention to Tiblow the Toad you saw Wilhelmina the Witch hidin' in the garden.
As you can see, she is nowhere near ready.

Man, I wish she would hurry up!
Today I saw Tiblow searchin' online for a gigantic belt buckle.

I'll keep you posted.

Have a great weekend folks!

He Sits And Waits...

Poor Tiblow the Toad.
I've been promisin' him I'd work on a companion, but haven't had the time.

So every evenin', he plops his lonely lil' self next to the ol' water pump and waits... listenin' to Elvis.
(Sigh. He's so dramatic.)

Be on the lookout for his witchy companion. If you happen to see her before he does, please give him the heads up.

Hopefully you won't find him in a white rhinestone studded jumpsuit with matchin' cape and porkchop sideburns doin' karate moves.

I'll keep you posted...

Let's Get Pickled **Hiccup**...

Not that kind of pickled!

I'm talkin' Refrigerator Sweet Pickles.

Since I've got cucumbers up the wazoo from my veggie garden, I thought why not makes some pickles!

First, gather up your ingredients.

6 - Cucumbers (sliced)
2 C - Sliced onions
1 C - Sliced green peppers

4 C -Sugar
2½ Tbs - Cannin' Salt
2 C - White Vinegar
3 tsp - Celery seed
A large cannin' jar or a big ol' jug with a lid.

Mix cukes, onion and peppers together.

Mix sugar, salt, vinegar and celery seed in the cannin' jar or jug. Mix it up real good too.

Then add your cukes, onions and peppers, stirrin' as you add them.

Place them in the refrigerator for 5 days makin' sure you mix them daily then enjoy!

You can put some in pint size jars and freeze 'em too. But heck, they won't last that long!

But she is in mine.
