A Little Me Time

I love this time of year and all the wonderful activities it brings. Gingerly walking through a pumpkin patch in search of the very best one, raking leaves and feeling the crisp air, watching Ohio State Buckeye football with my husband, taking my son to all of his school and band activities. It is wonderful, but it does leave little time for pampering. During the summer, I always can pamper. Fall, not so much. Middle Age Fan Girl has the perfect solution for this at her blog. She is having the most awesome Celebrity Spa Giveaway. Everything you need to relax, rejuvenate and catch up on some great gossip with Tori Spelling's new book. Stroll on over to Middle Age Fan Girl and enter today.

How Incredible Is This?

I just discovered the most amazing creation...EVER. Jayme Laney has the most amazing pottery. I am so impressed with the incredible craftsmanship he shows. In true Southern tradition, he has wonderful face jugs that make me want to hang a new shelf just to have a place to display them. He also has beautiful vases. His pottery is available in 44, yes, 44 different glazes. While browsing his beautiful creations, I stumbled upon his newest creation, "Apple Bakers". These are the most ingenious, charming little bakers. They are pottery bowls with a spike standing tall in the middle. You peel and core your apple and place it in the bowl. The spike goes up through the cored out middle. This allows the apple to bake evenly throughout. You add some yummy toppings such as butter, cinnamon and brown sugar and place in the oven. Out comes a gooey, sweet little piece of Autumn heaven. Check out Jayme's site at to see more of these great little bakers. They are as pretty as they are useful. I will be order quite a few for this Christmas season, and at only $9.00, they are the bargain of the season.
