Do You Love Apples Like I Do?... and Yummy Apple Recipes?...

Who doesn't love apples! I don't know anyone who doesn't... and as Fall is nearing, soon yummy apples will be everywhere!... Karen, my friend at Brayton Homestead Interiors, who I have named the Barn Chick Queen, and who hosted our recent Barn Chicks Party post is up to something fun again!... we all had such a marvelous time at the Barn Chicks party, Karen is setting up monthly meetings... alot of the ladies, including myself have already signed up... the next meeting (post) will be Friday, September 3rd, and the theme this time is "Barns and Apples"... everyone will be posting more of their favorite barns, apples of all sorts, and LOTS of yummy recipes using apples... what could be more fun!...(this is my favorite little fruit and veggie stand in the photo below... I can walk to it!)...

So, git out your boots... I shall wear my black ones this time I do believe...

And put on your hat...

And join the party!... you don't have to post a barn, maybe just your favorite apple recipe, or apple collectibles or such... hmmm... I am already thinking about MY favorite apple recipes and can't wait to share them with y'all!... Be sure to sign up on Karen's blog (linked above) for another fun day in the country!... xoxo Barn Chick Julie Marie

  8. Hello Julie Marie,
    I love your header with those delightfully cheery sunflowers! Ahhh fall is coming and I can smell the apple cider already. I love apples in any way shape or form. Is there anything sweeter and cozier than barns, farms and apple picking!! That is what I grew up doing and still do every September at Fo'Castle Farms in upstate NY. I'll try to get pictures when I get back up there. Next door at Lakeside Farm they have a 'cider witch' that comes out on the roof and throws candy to all the kids, I went when I was little and my entire family and I go every October, I can't wait. As always your posts delight me and remind me of 'home'
    Love Love Love the black boots and your are gorgeous in your hat!!

  9. Hi Julie Marie
    Autumn is my favourite season & just seeing all the Autumnal colours in your post makes me smile :-) Love apples too!

  10. I'll have to check that out. This summer has been so hot, humid, and yucky that I'm glad for fall. Fall is my favorite time of the year anyway. I did get a bunch of apples a couple of weeks ago so I made apple sauce, canned apples, apple butter, and I think I appled the week out!!!

  11. Hi Julie,
    I love apples too. The best part of Fall is apples, cider, pies and oh my gosh, now I am hungry for an apple. LOL

    The party sounds like fun. I will have to think about joining in. You know it becomes my very busy time of year, so it may not work, but I sure look forward to visiting.

    Love your black boots and you gorgeous girl in my favorite hat!!

    I love your new header too. .
