I just LOVE these new jar toppers that I purchased recently from KM PRIMITIVES and wanted to share some pics of them and my idea for their use.  They're  just so darn cute and will fit either a pint or a quart size jar.  I decided to attach them to antique pint canning jars and fill them with my favorite halloween candy for gift giving to some of my family members.  What a cute and inexpensive gift that can be used year after year.  You could fill with any number of fall goodies and tie off with raffia for a little extra added zing if you are not a candy lover.

If you have not had the pleasure to meet, Karen of MY COLONIAL HOME, you are really missing out.  She is an amazing crafter and a wonderful person and I feel blessed to know her.  Not only did I get these adorable jar toppers from her but she sent along a few PREZZIES in the box as well.  And goodness....who among us doesn't like to receive a prezzie or two...heehee!  And you ask "Why the prezzies?"  Well, just because....just because she is such a sweet person with a generous heart.  Here is a picture of the Christmas print she sent along with a couple of great smelling tart melts in sweet ditty bags.  The tarts are one of my favorite....Grandma's Sugar Cookie.  So yummy smelling.  Makes my mouth water.


And, last but not least, here are a few pics of my Fall/Halloween decorating around the farm.......

This is a pic of my antique wooden ironing board with someof my favorite things.

My centerpiece on my antique drop leaf table in my diningroom.

Witches shoes (made using a pattern from OLD ROAD PRIMITIVES and keepsake box sitting on antique radio.

Another fun Halloween keepsake box with what else than a witchy mouser...ha!

My antique drawer/ make-do wall box with more of my favorite Fall goodies.

My reproduction dry sink with more Fall/halloween goodies.

And last, my kitchen bench.

WHEW!!!  Have you made it this far without yawning.......then be the first to leave me a sweet comment and tell me what your favorite halloween candy is and win a SURPRISE Fall goodie from the farm.  A hint......the goodie is in one of the pictures in this post.

Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY BLESSED FALL!!!

hugs and smiles,

Hi Miss Carol,

Yawn? How can you say that, we looked at your bee-u-tee-ful fall decorations 3 times, everything just looks so warm and inviting.

Hmm, Mom is pretty strict with me having candy but she loves Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and always shares one with me. (o: She says they are sorta fall candy, the colors. Giggle.

Heaps of Hugs

Hi Daniel, HI Harold ♥

Karen said...

LOL...well if you didn't give it away with the hint...CANDY CORN of course! lol
OH THANK YOU SO MUCH CAROL for such a sweet post and for the nice comments about my products.
It was EASY giving PREEZIES to such a wonderful and generous lady as yourself.
I also have Candy Corn in my Pumpkin topper jar - so cute.
Your Fall decor is wonderful...I love the Halloween touches. I guess I had better get a few of my Halloween things out and put them among my Fall things.

I wasn't bored with your post! Your decorating is very inspiring! LOVE it! Looks so warm an inviting :) I love the jar topper too I think I'll have to bop on over to her page! My favorite fall candy tends to be chocolate bars especially 3 Musketeers. I know that's an all-time of year candy but I eat candy so seldom it's definitely one of my faves!

Well, I'm oh so very late to THIS party, but, hey....I'm here. I love Karen's jar toppers and was going to get some, then got sidetracked, and poof, they were gone. :o( Lucky folks on your gift list! Your fall decorating looks amazing - you have some really unique pieces. And I love your ironing board display. I have a board, but no place to display it, and never figured out quite what I would display ON it even if I did...You've done it up wonderfully. Oh - and not that it matters, but my favorite HALLOWEEN candy is a new find - candy corn taffy....YUMMM!! I'm usually a chocolate kind of gal, but oh my heck, this stuff is addicting!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
