Also, the everyday occurrences will be busy, exciting, and fun as my teaching and housewife adventures continue through this season.
To celebrate this in-between season time, today I went both garage sale-ing AND to a farmer's market. My Kindergarten colleague invited me to go. It was a lot of fun!
Here are my awesome purchases that I am really excited about!
|Brand new, still in the packaging Christmas lights for our house and tree: $6 for all 3 sets|
|Puzzle (will be a Christmas present for my MIL who loves puzzles): $0.50|
|Wooden Star coat rack: $4 (I have DIY Pinterest plans for this)|
|Two window-pane mirrors: $7 for both (again, more DIY/Pinterest plans)|
|I got this cute wood and metal cart for my mom for porch decor: $30|
After several garage sales and many great buys, we headed to the farmer's market. So pretty! I took lots of pictures. Enjoy!
|Vegetables are so much prettier at a market than at the store.|
|Carved candles! The leave and rose petals were so cool.|
|Fresh-pressed apple cider smelled and tasted so good.|
|I bought a garlic parmesan roll (huge!) to munch on for $1.|
|I also bought a pasty from this bakery stand for $6. It has ground beef, onion, and potatoes in. It was frozen, I cooked it and we split if for dinner! So delicious!|
|Our neighbor has been growing a garden and when I got home she had left a bag of tomatoes, peppers, and corn on our doorstep. The corn was so sweet and juicy!|
|While the pasty baked, I decided another great way to celebrate the end of summer and beginning of fall was to make apple crisp! I had bought some huge Fuji apples at the store so it was perfect.|
|My sweet husband helped me!|
|Hubby mixing up the crumble.|
|All ready to go in the oven!|
|We ate our homegrown/homemade fall dinner while watching Definitely, Maybe|
|The cinnamony-smelling result!|
|:) mmmm, feels like fall now!|
