Fall through Time

   Beatiful weather here in North Carolina.  It rained for a few days but even that was great as we really needed it.  
 I'll be participating  a few parties. The links are at the bottom of this post.. do go visit these folks, you'll be soooooooooooooo inspired and you'll enjoy yourself too:)
  I sure have enjoyed seeing all of your fall displays and inspiration photos.  As for me, I'm looking forward to doing a little spring this year myself... Building my energy back after that cold me and my daughter had. It certainly was a wake up call to make sure and have a full pantry as well as the "cold needs container" filled and ready.  When both of you get sick, neither wants to go to the store.  I now have 20 cans of chicken broth on my list , giggle.. That was about the only thing I wanted for 4 days, breakfast lunch and dinner. 

  I decided to post some of my Fall of the Past photos .. I hope you enjoy them.

 Fall entry table 2009  ..  Truth be told, this is pretty much what fall looks like about now. Still all green :)
Fall 2010  Wreath I made from my 1.00 goodwill grapevine wreath and the rustic birdcage I found for 1.50.
The rest of the stuff I had in my Fall stash..  I may just use it again this year.  Yes thats a lil birdie I added to the cage.. I hope the real birds dont peck him ..
and what would Fall be without Pumpkin cupcakes..
This is a super simple recipe but its sooooooooooo good.. 

  1 package yellow cake mix
  2 cups of pumpkin~~ this replaces the water and oil  from the box directions.
  1 tsp. pumpkin spice
follow package directions for baking.. 
easy peasy and yummy..
and,, shhhhhhhhhhhhh  dont let the kids see this part... they have FIBER:)  I know so many moms have to sneak in the fruits and veggies and believe me Pumpkin is one of the best.. Enjoy~!
   Thanks so much for coming to visit me.
