Pumkins and Tarts Everywhere

Pumpkins here, pumpkins there, primitive pumpkins everywhere! I love Fall. I have to say it is my favorite time of year. Kids back in school, the cool nights, leaves sparkling with red, orange, green and yellow and most of all fall decorating. With pumpkins on my porch and dried corn stalks and a crow or two, it feels like fall.

These two guys are just a few of my offerings coming to Lemon Poppy Seeds on the first.

Below is what I have been up to, my new business that will be starting soon. I am working on the packaging and then they will be listed on my site, The tarts are made from soy wax and hold a scent very well. Lovin' it!!!

On the lower right side you will see a chocolate cheese cake smelling soap bar. It is made from goats milk soap and is very moisturizing and smells wonderful.

Check out the tiny pumpkins on the tarts. These tarts smell like buttery carmel, warmed with a touch of cinnamon, yummy! What a great fall scent these have. My house smells great!

The above pic is my new tart business, its coming soon. As soon as I have the packaging is done, they too will be offered on my website. I may have a give away in the next week or two if I can get my packaging done asap.

Thanks for stopping by, you are always welcome here. God bless. Cathy

Lately in all this insanity of renovating, meeting special orders and starting a new business I have found time to read. I don't even know why I started to read novels again. It was on a whim that I picked up a book, a book on the Amish of all readings. The novel was fiction but the values where Amish values, ones I come to cherish. As a Christian, reading how the Amish court, live and love has made me cry, rejoice and very, very convicted.

I've started talking to my children differently. As a matter of fact, I have added more chores, taken away TV somewhat and I now just read instead of watching that blasted thing. What a time stealer, family robber and opinion maker that TV is. Don't get me wrong, I may still watch it, but after reading some of the stistics from the Amish, I may never turn it on again. Read below.

Some interesting facts.

1. Wealth - A research from the Ohio State U. found that Amish farms income can be 10 times higher than that of a modern high tech farm.

2. Retirement - Most Amish have accumulated enough wealth to retire between 50-60 years of age.

3. Death - When someone dies young teens (age 16 and up) go the night before the funeral and sing, as many as 300 or more come and sing, can you invision your teen doing this???

4. Forgiveness - When the Amish Nickel Back school shooting took place (Amish children where shot and killed) the parents, grandparents, friends, family and more showed up to the shooter's house, engulfed the family with food, hugs, prayers and comfort. One grandfather of a victim embraced and hugged the shooter's father as he cried in his arms. The Amish attended his funeral and continued to comfort the family far after the shooting and funeral took place.

5. Faith - Faith is the core value they live their lives by. They don't preach faith, they live it day in and day out in every aspect of their lives.

I will have more to share in the future. Hope you enjoyed and can learn from the Amish. God bless. Cathy
