Sweet Coleslaw Recipe!!

 You will need 2 heads of purple cabbage, 4 stalks of celery, 2 green apples, Miracle Whip, lemon juice, and honey. I sliced up the cabbage, chopped the celery and thinly sliced the apples. In the large container ( I use a cake container upside down) use an entire container of 30 oz Miracle whip with 4 tablespoons of lemon juice and 3 tablespoons of honey( I used the blackberry honey from the farmers market). Stir all the ingredients really well then start adding the cabbage, celery and apple slices. I use tongs to mix it all up it seemed to work better than a spoon. I let it sit at least 2 hours, everyone loves it especially the kids!! Great summer side dish!! I got this recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens last summer but I altered it a bit.

Patch work Candy Corns Bowl Fillers

I usually make the candy corns out of muslin and paint them but this time I decided to make them by sewing strips of fabric together and then cut out my candy corn.

My little Raggedy Witch!!

Her eyes, mouth, shoes and tights are painted. Her nose and wool yarn hair are hand stitched. I made her little bloomers!! I'm working on another one, she won't be green, muslin instead. I thought the fabric I made her dress out of was to cute!!

My Fruits and Veggies from the Farmers Market Today!!

I posted so late today because I have been running around like a crazy person trying to fit everything into a day!!
Here are my fruits and veggies for the week. I am going to chop up the carrots, broccoli and zucchini and freeze them for the Fall and winter. Last weekend I chopped up the squash and froze it. I'm going to do it every weekend so I will have plenty to last all winter.

I had tried the orange blossom honey so this time I thought I would try the blackberry and cinnamon.
I just realized I didn't put my bread in the picture but you know I bought 2 loaves of the lemon white chocolate bread!!
