Apple Orchard and my New Apple Sign

I love this lil' long cabin at the orchard.

My daughter picking a granny smith apple

I have been following Lynn's blog for awhile and fell in love with her work.  I had also seen this on Aunt Ruthie's blog and didn't feel like it was something I could recreate so I asked Lynn.  She did an inspired version of the one from her blog.  If you would like to see how she made it she wrote about it on her blog Painting Thyme Needfuls.  It turned out great!  I can't tell you how nice it looks in person.  I just love it, and it fits in perfect for my kitchen.  The rolling pin is a real vintage one too.  

I put it above my pantry in a prominent place in my kitchen, when you walk in my side door which is just about what all our guests do, you see this!

Anyone know how to fix these picture issues for a few weeks now I've not been able to load pictures correctly, ugh... so frustrating.  I've had trouble before and can't remember where you can adjust the settings.

Have a wonderful Fall weekend!



  1. Carey I'm so glad you love the sign! I can't wait to go apple picking. Its one of my favorites things to do in the Fall besides eating a peice of apple pie!

  2. Love the vintage rolling pin and sign! We are off to an apple orchard in Wisconsin next weekend.
    Thanks for becoming a follower ~ I completely understand about the award, with it being my first one, I didn't know how much work it took! Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your blog!

  3. Such a cute sign Carey... Looks like a fun day at the orchard. Did you get pumpkins too?

  4. I LOVE the sign! It looks really good. I'm partial to anything with apples though cause it's what I collect ;) Looks like y'all had a great time apple pickin too.

  5. Very cute sign....we went apple pickin' too and need to get busy on more these apple recipes!

    As far as pictures go, I usually have to rotate them in my picture manager before I try uploading them to blogger, if that's what you're talking about? Sorry I'm not very techy either!
