Painted Upholstered French Twin Bed

I found an incredible Louis XV twin bed at an estate sale for a price that I could live with and in a style I couldn't resist.

Fall and the Crabapple Festival

For the second year in a row, a friend and I attended the Crabapple Festival in... you guessed it... Crabapple, Georgia.

We could not have asked for a better place to be on what just might be the most spectacular day we've had in Metro Atlanta this year.  The sun was shining, the sky was that incredible shade of blue reserved for ushering in a change of season, and there wasn't a cloud in the sky.
Simply stunning!

Yellow Daisy Festival and Yard Sales

It's getting to be that time of year.  And even though it doesn't feel like Fall in Metro Atlanta the anticipation is here for the festivities scheduled over the next month.

A couple of early entries in this year's lineup were the annual Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain, and a Multi-Dealer and Collector Yard Sale that I participated in.  Yellow Daisy is something I attend every year, rain or shine, cool or hot, with cool being a relative term and hot meaning h-o-t.

Home Canned Tomatoes -- A How-To

This past weekend, traveling through the North Georgia mountains, I found these beautiful, perfectly ripe tomatoes in Helen, Georgia.  I thought tomatoes were gone by now and I'd missed my chance to do some canning.
I couldn't resist buying a box of them.
