Hi, How'dy, How are ya?

Welcome to "The Country Schoolmarm"! Get yourself a cup of coffee (I take mine strong with vanilla creamer), grab a seat, and chat a while! Isn't that what country friends do? Now, all we need is a porch...

I need more pumpkins... No. Seriously...

Here it is!  Drum roll please! Your finalized idea...

    But, wait... They had to be "husband" approved... Steve liked the big toolbox on our center kitchen island instead.  He said that it was really nice and since it was not as long as the other carriers, it gave him more room to work (my picture for the island turned out blurry.  I need to take a new one after school... Sorry!)
    So, Steve wanted this instead.  He said the narrow one could be pushed back to allow more room for serving (Hmmm... I think someone suggested that...).  I truly did not sway him in either direction.  He chose.  I moved them.

 Prizes??? Here are SOME pin keeps that need to bake... More to come... Do you like yours browned or REALLY browned? Any kind of pie pin keeps you would like to see? Strawberry? Anything else?  I have Blackberry, Pumpkin, Chicken, and my regular Apple...

      I will post the start and finish of the final entries for the giveaway.  Sorry, school is just hectic now... Back to School Night tomorrow night.  I wanted to get these pictures out to you...

     Love and hugs, dear friends!  Thanks for hanging in there with me.  There is more "School" than "Country" in the "The Marm" right now...


P.S.  I am serious about the pumpkins... I put most of my fall stuff into the hutch and dining room.  The rest looks a bit bare...  If you want to see the difference, I will post some pics from last year... Oh, my...

  2. You put me to shame Heather! I need to get my 'buns' in gear and get decorating! Love it all....but I can see that you do need more PUMPKINS! One can never have enough! Hope school is going well! Hugs and blessings

  3. I especially love that long, narrow box with pumpkins!

  4. What beautiful decorating - you have a lot of places to decorate.
    I think your husband needed to have his opinion realized - they live there too. How nice of you to let that happen - I give my husband choices too and things seem to work out much smoother.
    I like my prim items lightly aged.

    You have been busy...and I love pumpkins so much ❤️❤️❤️
