An Apple A Day Keeps The Decorating Blues Away

Ahhhh, ain't it the truth. I really get excited about decorating with fruits and vegetables. As summer draws to an end and apples are so beautiful and the really interesting vegis are out of the fields and so lovingly displayed on our grocery shelves....I begin to look for decorating inspiration in the isles of our produce department. And don't you know that I will be a happy gal when we trot on down the lane to a nearby pumpkin patch.....yep, happy camper am I when that day comes. All of the wonderful squash and corn and gourds and, and, and apples! Lots and lots of apples. Apples love...can you feel it?

In the weeks to come I will share some of my delight in decorating with apples and vegis...but for now...I'll give you just a sample of what I am talking about.

Aren't they pur~dy?

Place apples in a cutie~pie bowl on the bathroom sink...

instant decorating unexpected~ness!

So fresh and yummy...just asking to be made into a pie~ola!

How 'bout pears in a jar...pear are BFFs with apples...don't ya know...

I have shown this before...but it is worth repeating...I love putting

apples around the base of my pots...and one day, in the near future, these

apples with change to mini pumpkins and gourds....Magic!

Have a wonderful week...I promise to chat more this week now that the insane pace of my volunteering is slowing down a bit...or is it....I don't know...I am too busy to tell.

I am still waiting for apples to get cheap around here, lol...was there a problem with apple crops this year? I am still paying $3.50-$3.99 for a bag of them and I don't dare buy the ones by the pound til they drop in price...hmmmm....wonder what the deal is?
