"Hoosier Daddy?"

In our little cottage we have a cupboard commonly known as a "Hoosier". In the 1930's all of the baking supplies were stored in these marvelous units.

We found our Hoosier in several pieces stored in a friends barn.

We painted it black...stained the doors...put beadboard in the back of the shelving.....

This is where I now store my baking supplies.


Walmart carries these wonderful glass canisters.

I designed labels for all my staples [got tired of trying to remember which flour was which].

Candy Corn is a necessity of life, don't you know?  

White linens and Homer Laughlin dishes dress the shelf for Fall.

Some of our cookbooks are on top of the hoozier.

I made the stickers with paper that has an adhesive on the back...
just design them....
print ....
cut them out...
peel the paper off the back....
slap 'em on

We hang pictures, plates, wall-hangings, sconces, etc
all over the place a cozy, English cottage feel.

The dining room table set for Fall

Even our refrigerator gets its Fall duds on. The lace is a curtain sheer doubled and draped over the fridge [looks pretty and keeps the dust at bay].

 Ooops! The  lampshade was crooked.

Acorns make a nice nest for my birdhouse.
Can you see the chicken peeking around the pedestal

In the current economy every one is feeling the pinch of trying to make ends meet.

Some folks have been without employment for quite sometime. When you go through your closets this Fall remember to donate to your local shelters. Our church has opened a clothing and food pantry for the needy. Many centers around you would appreciate your stuff and even your time. You will get the benefit of knowing you have you have done a good deed!
