Magnolia Vale

We spent Thanksgiving in Brookhaven, Mississippi with my husband's side of the family. His Aunt's plantation home, Magnolia Vale, where we stayed is well over 100 years old...and has a name, y'all. Any home with a name is automatically way snazzier than all the non-named places I've ever lived. :) All the doors and drawers open with skeleton keys, everyone has double names, we lounged on the huge porch, and we ate with the family china and silver that will continue to be passed down from generation to generation...it was a true Southern holiday.
I received a few chuckles for snapping pictures of plates, spoons, and canned goods, but I had to document our stay. It was too nice not to share.
Here you have it, our Mississippi Thanksgiving...

I told you I was really into triangles lately! :)
This is the newest design in the shop. I made a set for myself too. I'm not real matchy-matchy with my jewelry, so I never wear them together, but I wear one of them almost every day. They go with everything!!!Click HERE ---> for the necklace

Our Town

When my four year old gets home from preschool and the baby takes a nap, we have "Mommy and Judah Time". Usually we color, read, build Lego boats, etc. But lately we've been working on this little project.
It's nothing but a big sheet of card stock (snagged from in between stacks of toilet paper at Costco - haha!) - a super easy project that needs no instructions. The best part though, is that every time we lay in the floor to color, he starts chatting.... he tells me about his day, his favorite thing to do on the playground, his best friends at school, what the girls at school say (one told him he was cute during nap time!!), which letters are hard to write, and which are easy, what he wants to be when he grows up. It all comes spilling out as fast as the colors on the page.
I know this will be hard to fit in the keepsake box, but I don't think I'll be able to part with Our Town any time soon!

The dog watches while the local church gets an orange window...Making a traffic jam...Toy Store and Pet Shop (he made it rain on them one day)...His tree house...New additions will include a train track and station, and a bakery. :)

Good Morning!
My chicken pot pie is prepped for tonight, the baby is napping, and coffee is poured...I thought I'd pop in and let you all know that Poppytalk's Pre-Holiday Market is up and running. Check out my table HERE.
Oh! And stay tuned... I have a fun little project I've been working on with the four year old that I'm going to post soon. For now, here's a little video of him and his sweet (and gullible) imagination.

Spiced Pancakes

The picture isn't as tasty as the cakes were, so you'll just have to trust me on this one.
These were super-duper easy. I followed the directions on Bob's 10 Grain Mix, and added about a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice, and a cap full of vanilla extract.
The one-year-old and I gobbled them up. I just did butter on mine, although I'm sure they would be good with powdered sugar and syrup (what isn't?) or whipped cream, ooooooh! ...or pumpkin butter! Yum.
