Hall Autumn Leaf Pottery

After emptying my mom's home, John and I have determined to downsize in our own home, keeping just what we use and enjoy.  Bringing containers out of our storage brought to light these familiar pieces I began collecting many years ago.
This Autumn Leaf pattern was produced by the
Hall Company in Liverpool, Ohio.

 This is an easy cake to make that is moist and just right with a thin layer of cream cheese frosting.
Combine all of the ingredients together in mixer bowl then pour into a greased 9 x 13-inch pan and bake.
When cool, frost and enjoy.

A Bushel and a Peck

I may be being extra sentimental lately but this warmed my heart when I saw it on pinterest.
My mom often would sing this to me when I was little :)
here was her version:
~*~
I didn't know that it came from
the Musical "Guys And Dolls"
(Frank Loesser) 
Perry Como & Betty Hutton - 1950 Margaret Whiting & Jimmy Wakely - 1950 Doris Day - 1950 The Andrews Sisters - 1953 Johnny Desmond - 1953 Vivian Blaine - 1953 

I love you a bushel and peck
A bushel and peck and a hug around the neck
A hug around the neck and a barrel and a heap
A barrel and a heap and I'm talking in my sleep
About you, about you
Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
you bet your pretty neck,
I do Doodle, oodle, oodle, doodle, oodle, oodle, doodle, oodle, oodle oo
I love you a bushel and peck
A bushel and peck
though you make my heart a wreck
Make my heart a wreck
and you make my life a mess
Make my life a mess,
yes A mess of happiness
About you, about you
Cause I love you
a bushel and a peck
You bet your pretty neck, I do
Doodle, oodle, oodle, doodle, oodle, oodle, doodle, oodle, oodle oo
I love you a bushel and peck
A bushel and peck
and it beats me all to heck
Beats me all to heck
and I'll never tend the farm
Never tend the farm
when I wanna keep my arm About you,
about you
Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your pretty neck, I do
Doodle, oodle, oodle, doodle, oodle, oodle, doodle, oodle, oodle oo

This beautiful amethyst pendant was hand crafted by Parul.
She is an artisan who was born and raised in Delhi.

When I received a letter from the folks at
