Let the Fall Festivals Begin

Saturday my hubby and I drove to Warm Springs, 
which is only a 30 minute drive, to our first Fall
Festival this year.

It had pumpkins galore!

And the largest prettiest red apples!

All kinds of booths, just about anything you could

Just down the road not even a half mile, is the
Little White House where Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt stayed when he came to Warm Springs.


He was known to stay at the Warm Springs Hotel on occasions also.

Our favorite place to eat when we go to 
Warm Springs, is the Bulloch House Resturant.
Early this year it burned to the ground. 

Wasn't it pretty, especially at night during Christmas!

It is in the process now of repairing the Victorian Tea Room building, which was a favorite of mine also, but it went out of business a few years ago.

It will be the new home of the Bulloch House until they can rebuild on the same spot.

They serve the best Home Cooking ever! People comes from miles around to eat there. They hope to 
reopen in this new place by the first of November.

 These two pumpkin wreaths were hanging on two
windows in front of a store. They look like they would be so easy to make. Pretty too!

Enjoy all the Festivals this Fall !

Have a Blessed Autumn!

Apple Butter Pound Cake

I've had my Southern Lady magazine for
a few weeks now, and every time I looked
at it I really wanted to make this cake on the
cover.  It's an Apple Butter Pound Cake.

I finally got up the nerve to make it.
The recipe is long so I won't try to 
post it.  It takes an hour and 20 minutes
to bake (and the good Lord knows I am 
not a patient woman).  15 to 20 minutes
just to mix the ingredients. Then placing
dough in the bunt pan 1/3 at a time. Cooling
it until it's completely cooled. Another 15 minutes

to make the glaze. Oh and to start at first you have to mix up a pecan,brown sugar and butter mixture. Anyway I started at 4 o'clock P.M.

and it was 8 o'clock when I finally finished it.
Maybe I am just a little too slow!

Now mine didn't turn out as pretty and white like 
the photo in the magazine. I forgot and didn't cool 
my glaze completely before I put the confectioners sugar in. my bad, I did say I am not very patient, didn't I!

It was good, even if it doesn't look as good.

And even better with a cup of Tea !

I love how my plants Loves this cool weather. They are growing and doing so good. Just don't like thinking it won't be long before the frost will 
come and take it all away. 

Have a Blessed Day!
