I love the above table idea to have in a sewing room.  It gives plenty of space to cut out a pattern and a place for the sewing machine.  Plus it has storage cubbies.  It looks easy to make, also.  My gentleman friend has every tool ever created I think. I call him tool man. Plus he has a woodworking shop where he has made cabinets.  Would he make this for me?  I don’t think so.  No time.  But my grandson likes to do stuff like this and he’s really good at it.  I think that he made one similar for his Mom.


I don’t like the color of the sewing table.  I like Benjamin Moore paint and I think that I would paint the table simply white.  I think that I would put Antique look knobs on the pull out drawers.


I also like the above idea to store material in a sewing room.  It’s an old wire spool refinished into a fabric display.


I like the above chalkboard idea.


I like the above idea for cheese and grapes.  So cute and so easy to do.  Love the little celery stem.


I have a recipe for cut out cookies that is from a 1970’s Better Homes and Garden cookbook.  The cookies are like a shortbread and I used to make all kinds of cut out cookies for my kids.  I like the above pumpkin cookie idea.  King Arthur Flour has a neat pumpkin cookie cutter.


I also have a recipe for New York Cheesecake from that 1970’s Better Homes and Garden cookbook.  That recipe isn’t in their newer cookbooks.  It is one of my favorite recipes.


I love Butternut Squash soup.  An easy recipe that I make is there is a frozen butternut squash that is in a frozen block in the freezer section at Marketbasket.  I put a half of cup of unsweetened almond milk, a half cup of unsalted vegetable broth, the frozen squash, a little applesauce and a little plain yogurt in a saucepan.  I like it especially on a chilly Fall day.


I love to visit a local Apple orchard this time of year.  On weekends they make apple cider donuts.  They have a machine just like the above and you have warm, delicious donuts there.  Plus cold apple cider and also Hot spiced  apple cider.  The views at that orchard in the Fall are just awesome of distant mountains and they have tractors with  wagons hitched to them and they go all over the orchards for free tours.  Love it.  I always buy a 5 lb bag of Macintosh apples there every week or so in the Fall.  The apples are just scrumptious.


I love the radishes that are at the Farm Stands right now.  I just take some cream cheese and put some herbs in it and spread it on a sliced baguette with the sliced radishes.  I don’t know, it just seems like something French people like.  And I love anything French.


It’s oatmeal for breakfast time again.  I love the bananas, sliced apples, chia seeds. pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, wheat germ and ground flax-seed.


I love the wagon with the Mums and pumpkins in it.  People have such neat decorating ideas.


I bought some Indian corn to put on my door.  I love the looks of it for Fall when you put it in a swag like that.


I love how people decorate Fireplace mantels for all the different seasons.


I like the above outfit for Fall.  My favorite fashion blogger has links to a lot of her friends fashion blogs.


I like the above chalkboard art.

And that’s my musings for today.
