The crisp fall weather has settled over Michigan, it’s time to bring the sweaters out of storage and it’s a good day to have a country gathering on the front porch of our Rustic Cabin. Pull up a straw bale and sips some hot cider, while we tour the Fall Porch. Our porch runs the whole length of the front of the cabin and this is where you can find me most any day of the year. There’s something inviting about a covered porch, it just beckons you to sit a spell and enjoy all the sights of nature. My favorite spot is the swing, I can be found on my ipad, reading, or napping on that swing. The napping part is very seldom, but once in a while it just feels good to let the sun beat down on you when the days are cool.
Come on up and grab an apple. My boys brought me 6 bushel of apples two days ago so it looks like I will be busy making cider, applesauce, and apple chips. It’s always a treat in the winter to have these items on hand. I like to make the cider and it’s easy so into the freezer it will go.
I found these harvest plates on Ebay and couldn’t resist buying them. They look great with a fall table setting and they fit right into the cabin, and don’t forget a buffalo check table cloth. It just screams country harvest party right?
The front door has a simple, galvanized sap bucket loaded with fresh Goldenrod. My field between the guest house and ours is laden with this allergy causing flower. It is beautiful the first thing in the morning with the sun just rising over the field, it makes the Goldenrod just glow.
I love living in the county, and would never be classified as a city girl. I love to sit on the porch in my cowgirl boots and let the day pass by. Doesn’t it look like fun to sit on a straw bale and have dinner with your family? The country life for me…..
I was lucky to find these beautiful potted flowers at our local grocery store for $2, another charm of small town living things cost almost nothing compared to things in the city. And lucky for me they jumped right into my cart.
Here’s a close up of those stinkin, cute dishes. The patterns are blueberries, tomatoes, corn, and watermelon, the perfect combination that says fall harvest. The hankies are a fun thing to use as a napkin too.
Here’s a look at those organic apples the boys brought me. Don’t they look delicious? Much better than store bought any day, and you can tell no pesticides were used on these by the worm holes and the imperfections.
