Find It On Etsy GIVEAWAY: Botanical Bird Leaf Bracelet!! (US/CAN) -CLOSED-

Autumn Amber Necklace-brown-vintage style
Winner

Autumn is here...and so are the wonderful colors and styles of jewelry available in Botanical Bird on Etsy! I LOVE this time of year, so its a joy to see some autumn inspired jewelry to enjoy.  Botanical Bird certainly isn't limited to the inspirations and color scheme of fall; but is certainly accompanied by other beautiful jewelry that is indefinitely inspired by our beautiful earth.

Orange Flower Earrings-post style-gold plated
Cyd, the creator and mastermind behind Botanical Bird is one talented lady! Not only does she work diligently in her shop, she's also a poet currently working on a children's book.  Her poems can be viewed on "Hello Poetry" under the name CA Guilfoyle.  I had a chance to read a few of her poems and realized how intertwined the arts of poetry and jewelry making is for her. Her theme most generously involves her love of nature, which would be hard to ignore in such a beautiful place (especially this time of year) as Oregon; where Cyd is from.

Copper Acorn Earrings-Swarovski glass pearls-brass acorn caps
I was able to review these Acorn earrings pictured above.  Simply I must say that they are beautiful.  They are understated just enough to be able to wear dressed up or down.  These are well made my friends.  Sometimes when you order online you don't know what your going to get, but on Botanical Bird, you're sure to be happy with your purchases. :)

Win this Brass Oak Leaf Bracelet!!!
One reader will Win this Brass Oak Leaf Bracelet from Botanical Bird on Etsy!!!  US and Canada only.

a Rafflecopter giveaway Giveaway will end October 15th at 11:59 p.m. EST  I was given a pair of Acorn Earrings to review from Botanical Bird on Etsy.  No other compensation was received.  All opinions are my own.  This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

What to do with Apricots: Homemade Fruit Leather

If you have access to an apricot tree I highly suggest making fruit leather.  This was my first time attempting any kind of dried fruit and it turned out heavenly!
Plus my house smelled great all day!!  And if you read a recent post you can see why that would be needed...lol

Apricot Fruit Leather

4 cups chopped apricots

1/2 c water

Add apricots and a 1/2 c of water to a saucepan on low heat.
Cover, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes.
Add sugar 1 T at a time till it tastes good
Add lemon juice 1 tsp at a time to taste
Add cinnamon to taste
Add nutmeg to taste - I did a lot of tastin'!! :)
Simmer for 5 minutes on low heat until thickened a bit


In batches add mixture to a blender
Blend until smooooooooth
Prepare baking sheet: line with microwaveable safe plastic wrap
Add mixture to sheet about 1/4 inch thick


MAKE SURE the plastic wrap doesn't fold over mixture and that it doesn't touch your oven
Bake at 140 degrees for 8 to 12 hours - fruit leathe…
