My new e-book Pumpkin Pickin’ & Hayrides is a wagon-load of fall wonderfulness!
Take a lookie at my grand-babies Kade and Johnny…the two farm-boys on the front cover!
Pumpkin Pickin’ & Hayrides is everything I love about fall…the beauty...the glory…the starry-eyed passion I have for gathering autumn goodness to adorn my home and making my nest warm and cozy before the blustery winds of winter chill the air.
Pumpkin Pickin’ & Hayrides is a celebration of God’s blessings and goodness to us! It’s jam-packed with 96 pages of dear and sweet blessings from the Lord that are meant to warm your heart…to make it swell with thankfulness & joy and put a twinkle in your eyes.
My hope is that this e-book of fall wonderfulness would make you feel delightfully and joyfully domestic as you cozy-up your home so you and your family would wholeheartedly enjoy this delicious fall season!
Throughout the book I’ve sprinkled old time photos and images…what I call “vintage eye-candy." Images of the “good ol’ days” to remind us of the goodness of old fashioned fall fun…
…images that will hug your heart with the comforts of hearth and home!
Darlin’ it’s drippin’ with nostalgia like sweet golden honey from a hot buttermilk biscuit!
“As mama hens, we love that feeling of being prepared, having all of our needful provisions stocked and ready in our snug homes. And when the icy frost sparkles on our windowpanes, we’ll be simmering hearty soups, and baking old family recipes; scrumptious cookies and delicious pies to bless and nourish your family and mine.”
- Excerpt from Pumpkin Pickin’ & Hayrides, by Aunt Ruthie
Pumpkin Pickin’ & Hayrides is divided by chapters, each focusing on a theme to get you down-right giddy about celebrating this glorious time of year!
I share tips for getting your home tidy and smelling sweet to welcome your family home.
I also included several recipes under “The Dinner Bell” chapter…yummy fall country fixin’s! There’s not a sweeter sound on the farm than the Dinner Bell a-ringin’! It means supper is on the table and its good ‘n hot! This collection of recipes is a “cream of the crop” sampling of my home cookin’ during this chilly fall season.
