After a few days of very warm humid temps I woke this morning to much cooler weather. I had a lot of energy to do some cleaning, it did feel good to be moving around and not sweating as I moved.
Here's the baby quilt I finished and gave to our newest grandson. I made it with vintage style fabric, it was a lot of fun making this.
Where do you put all your canning lids? I have a lot of them and didn't know what to do with them so I kept them in a big bag.
When we started looking for a place here in Southwest Wisconsin, we went into an Amish home that was for sale and in the pantry the Amish wife had her canning rings hanging up like this. So, whenever I go to get my canning rings for canning I always think of that young Amish wife who gave me the idea.
Probably the hottest day of the summer and I canned 2 batches of tomato sauce, there is still more tomatoes out there that I need to can as well.
I love sitting in the evening by lamp light. I guess with the month of August quickly coming to and end it's causing me to yearn for fall days, and my favorite time of year.
Mr called me down to his office earlier to show me what has been hanging outside his office door.
A walking stick, which I can't recall ever seeing before.
I thought I'd share with you a few bits and pieces of life here at Gentle Hearth Farm.
