Although it has been extremely hot here in Georgia, we've had a small taste of Fall. For the past couple of days, we have enjoyed lower temperatures and breezy days.
On top of that, the corn field across the road has been harvested, and our neighbor is burning a huge pile of tree limbs near the fence line today.
Ahhh, it smells like Fall.
Perhaps I am jumping the gun, but
I am itching for Fall now!
Yesterday, I whipped up a batch of faux caramel apples and began decorating.
I added red ribbon to the apples that
I placed on my old stove.
These apples will also look festive during Christmas.
I used straw ribbon on these.
Don't they look like ...
~How to make faux caramel apples~
fake apples (this recipe will make 15-20 apples)
Mod Podge (Gloss) 8 oz.
2- 2oz.craft glue in a caramel color (Apple Barrel paint from Walmart)
wooden sticks or Popsicle sticks
small plastic bowl or cup
Mix 8 oz. of Mod Podge and two 2 oz. bottles of caramel color paint together in a small bowl. Insert sticks into apples. Dip and roll apples around in the fake caramel mixture. Let them drip for a moment then place them on wax paper. Add corn cob litter as nuts. Let dry for several hours. After the sides dry, turn them over to let the bottom dry.
Popcorn, coffee beans, and a mulled cider candle make my kitchen look and smell as if Fall is in the air.
Fall flowers in an old metal pail look abundantly beautiful!
Here's a glimpse of the forecast where I live.
Wow, this is a decent break in temperature for us! It will probably be near 100 degrees again by the middle of next week.
If you comment, let me know where you live and what the weather feels like there.
Well, have a blessed day, Dear Readers. I have to go out and feed the chickens now.
