Winter is In The Air! Thrifting, Homemade Apple Vinegar



Winter is In The Air!
All of a sudden we've hit the 30's at night! Leaves are falling faster, and some trees are bare. Last weekend I put on the heavy comforter. Soon it will be flannel sheets! I love this time of year, since we may get snow soon. If you've followed me a while you know I LOVE SNOW!!! Yeah baby, I could live in Minnesota, or any of those other snowy states. This is the time of year the veggies are also winding down. We picked all the ripe tomatoes Sat. and I made a big pot of spaghetti sauce Sunday, with lots of Italian sausage- 


Time for more hot teas, soups and chilis :) I also love Halloween!

Our entryway ready for the little spookies

My fave garland for outside, hat do you love about this time of year?



Thrifting-
Last weekend I found these 2 little Delft porcelain guys for 99 cents each. I've accidentally started a little collection :)




Homemade Apple Vinegar-
My vinegar is finally ready after 2 months. It's light and made from our own organic apples. Bottled in a thrifted bottle with cork, $1.99. Smells great!

Nancy do you can anything with your homemade apple vinegar? Or just bake and cook? I have been so interested in making some when our trees start to produce.

I love this time of year, too! My favorite season. Love the foods also like soups, stews, root vegetables, apple anything, etc. Even though we have the "must dos" to get done before winter sets in, the pace of life feels a little slower than it does in summer. Enjoy! (And if you are a real snow lover, you know where you could move!)

Kristina, I don't can with it since I don't know the acidity level. I'll use it for salads dressings, etc.

Me too Mama. Hubby would never let us move that far north sadly...

That is how collections start, oh, so innocently.
