Altered for Him and Apples

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 25:11

It's apple picking time here in Maine where I live.  The apples are plentiful on the trees this year.  Apple picking is a fun activity for kids, so is making applesauce. At a recent women's retreat at my church, the delicious refreshments provided for the evening had an apple theme.   Oh me, oh my these were soooo tasty.  I had to indulge myself.  I think there was cream cheese in them. 

Just look how beautiful this display of apples was.  The ladies that prepared this really had a flair for doing it up in a fine way.

Here's a vintage apple postcard by Catherine Klein.  She really knew how to capture an object.  This is free for you, don't forget to click on the image to make it larger before saving it to your computer.

I hope you've enjoyed today's apple post.  If I could have you all over for apple crisp and cider, I certainly would, but this will have to suffice.

My friend Cassandra at Altered for Him Blog, surprised me today when I visited her blog and saw that she and her son had made two you tube video tutorials.  I was so excited to watch them, and learned all kinds of new skills.  In one of them, she teaches you how to make some altered art, and makes it look easy with things you probably already have.  The other was using a special foam and embossing folders, I can't wait to try that.  Here's the link to her post I'm on the Tube.

Cassandra is a special person who loves to encourage others through her art.  She offers to send a free handmade tag to someone you know that is in need of encouragement.  She calls this ministry Handmade With Love and you can find out more about it by clicking below.  Thank you Cassandra for being the sweet, kind, caring and generous person that you are.   I pray that God blesses you for your service to Him.  

I tell you the truth, whatever you did
for one of the least of these brothers of mine, 
you did for me.  Matthew 25:40

I hope you have a blessed day my friends.

  5. Just today I was hungry for some homemade applesauce. My grandma used to make it and freeze it. We'd eat it when it was still icy. I miss her applesauce but I miss her more.
