After a few days rain break, I was able to get out and do more fall clean-up work. I cut back the snapdragons (or as my hubby calls them - dragonsnaps.) He never knew you could make the flowers "talk" by squeezing the sides and every year he is delighted by their chatter. Sometimes they even give him little flower kisses or bite his nose. Ok - we're easily amused around our house.

That cute little 4 cup teapot came from T.J. Maxx and only cost $8.99
This little glass dome is a cheese dome that fits on a marble vase. Sometimes I put a heavy candle plate on top on a candle holder turned upside down. I haven't found the need to glue the two stand pieces together which means I still have a candle plate and a candle holder to use.
The first fire in the wood stove is always a big day. We received several extra cords of wood for free this summer. With electricity prices going up so high we will be doing a lot of our heating with the stove this winter. It should save us about four to five hundred dollars.
