As soon as I finished cleaning up the driveway and porch I began organizing the garage. I came across my empty peanut butter containers along with several other type of containers. I began filling them up with nails and screws when it occured to me....this is something that my grandfather use to do. I use to watch him in his shop do this very thing years ago. Not only did he do this but I've seen my father do it as well. This got me thinking of other things that I picked up on as little girl. My grandmother loved humming birds and had to have a humming bird feeder near the back window so she could watch them. I have a humming bird feeder in my back yard near my back window so I can watch them. My mother cooked chocolate chip cookies on rainy weekends. I cook chocolate chip cookies on rainy weekends. Hmmm........
What little things has your grandparents/parents taught you that you do today?

I picked this cutie up at a garage sale over the summer for $1.00. At the time I couldn't figure out what I was going to do with it but I knew it would come in handy. I decided to put it to good use and make it a fall centerpiece. What do y'all think?
I decided to put my old books in the corner of our fireplace. I picked up this cute scarecrow at a thrift store for .25 cents. I thought it was cute.
Here's our mantel. The walls in our house are being painted green. I have no idea what to do with this fireplace. I don't like the color of the wood mantel. I'm thinking about having it stained a dark brown to match the mirror. But the brick is a ugly dull color. I'm absolutely clueless on what to do with it. Any suggestions?
Here's our guest bathroom.
This is my french wire basket. I love collecting them. I used this basket to display my soaps.
This really has nothing to do with fall but I love my tea soaps. They are made out of tea and you pour them into your bath water. The aroma is delicious and I immediately begin relaxing once they begin to dissolve. My favorite is the Lavender tea.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out all my fall decorations....

Howdy to all my blogging sista's! Sorry I've been MIA but my schedule has been truly hectic. I finally got some down time and I'm taking full advantage of catching up on my Sunday comics and blogging. I want to express how much I appreciate all your kind comments on my cooking blog. Y'all are the best! I'm sorry I haven't had time to reply but I'll work on that this evening.
I just received some fantastic new recipes that I can't wait to share with you and will begin to post tonight.
I look forward to stopping by y'alls blogs and reading your posts to see what y'all been up to. Before I zip on down the road to blogger land I must ask your opinion:
1.) What are your family traditions for fall? Do you watch a favorite movie, bake a special dish, play family games, etc....
2.) Do you decorate your home for fall and how?
3.) What is your favorite fall dessert?
