Our Fall Foliage Day Trip

Yesterday hubby and I went on our annual drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway to see nature's beauty and I was able to sneak in two stops along the way to a couple of shoppes I'd been wanting to visit as well! The Blue Ridge Parkway did not disappoint and we also checked out the frontier life exhibit displayed by the Shenandoah National Park Service. When you walk along the path you'll find a log cabin and several other structures including a pantry, of course I had to take pictures to share!

Grater Make-Do

I got this unique grater make-do gathering from Margo on ebay a couple of weeks ago, she has such awesome offerings, and just today I decided how I wanted to display it. I couldn't decide if I wanted to lean it somewhere or could it be possible that I actually have an empty piece of wall space somewhere in my house? aha!! I do! Next to the primitive cupboard in my breakfast nook was just the right spot for it to hang! Isn't it cool?
