some fall beauty …

apple picking and new paltz 017 ed

Just stopping in to say hello and share these fall beauties.   We’ve been hanging about the house waiting for my little one to get over a terrible head cold, so there hasn’t been too much inspiration to share with you all.   But at least I have these gorgeous (delicious!) apples, right? 

I have also been trying to figure out how I can show you how to make the gum paste flowers, but the video thing isn’t really working out right now, and I don’t know how else to really show you how.  I was trying to figure it out with a friend, and she said she saw a ton of videos on the subject on You Tube.  So for now, I think the best thing to say is to search for gum paste flower tutorials there, and if you have any questions at all, drop me a comment and I will do my very best to answer them.   But I will keep thinking on how I can share it here too.   

Hope you all have a great week!



  1. I love apples, and these look very natural and tasty.

  2. Hi Stephanie!
    I hope your little one feels better soon!

    It is no fun being sick!

    Today was gorgeous, so I sat outside for a while.
    I can't wait to feel better.
    There's shopping to do!
    If you think you might get to Christmas Tree Shop this week, I have a 20% off your whole order! I can email it to you!

  3. Want to reach into my computer and pick these!

  4. These apples are gorgeous! Nothing better than apples straight from the tree.

  6. What a wonderful color these apples have to them. Like a watercolor.

  7. How wonderful it would be to just pick you a big, juicy apple right off the tree. You are fortunate to have them.
