~*Fall at the Primitive Apartment Homestead*~

Halloween is my favorite time of the year. The sights, smells and cool crisp air sing to my soul. Add to that a bounty of scary movies and shows on tv and I'm a happy, happy girl!!
Nothing better than a chilly fall day (preferably rainy), a scary movie (usually start my Halloween season off with Rose Red & the Shining by my boy Stephen King), a hot cup of coffee (or 10), and needle & thread in hand....that is Bliss.
This year brings some bittersweet emotions, no party with my boys and their friends watching Ghost Hunters Live (not on this year anyway....such a disappointment!!), and I don't get to dress up my dog and pass out candy to the trick or treaters.
Next year My boys & My dog will be with me on Halloween.
*Karma* *Karma* *Karma*
That just may be the next tattoo on my skin????
Giving you a little tour of my city slicker apartment that I've tried to prim up and a few of my favorite Halloween decorations. Don't have them all, nor would I be able to use them all in this small space but I sprinkled a few throughout our "home".
Keep telling myself that love makes a home not location....
There's lot's of love here so I guess that makes it a home in our hearts.....that house will come, the search continues!!
For now,'s small and simple, but it's the here and now.
Blessings to you all
Hold the ones you love

Poor little witch.....I didn't get the stick in her right and it's a little short so she's using the pumpkin as leverage to stand. She still is a pretty little thing tho yes??

A sweet Stacey Nash design I stitched a few years ago. This is filled with sawdust so it's nice & heavy and smells sooooo good!!

When I have a fireplace again this large gathering basket will go in front and be filled with pumpkins, gourds, bittersweet & broomcorn

This dress is one of my designs, I just realized looking at the picture that the cheesecloth around the hat is missing, thought something didn't seem right!!
It's hard to get a good angle for photos in here because it's long & narrow. Can't wait to paint and cover that ugly vent!!

This kind of turned into my all handmade spot. The colors all blended well together here. The candy corns and leaves are my designs.

Poor little mousie has been packed away so many times, his lil whiskers need fluffin!!

Kitties with cheesecloth are my design.....this tree needs more ornaments and a topper. I was thrilled to find a black Charlie Brown looking tree!!

~*Missing Posts From Followed Blogs & Easy Homemade Donuts*~

Happy Sunday to all, it's cold and rainy today (of course because I planned on doing my outside fall decorating today!!).
Getting ready to make some homemade donuts for breakfast for my boyfriend and his son who we have this weekend...yippee...he's a sweetie and I LOVE when we have him here. Check the bottom of the post as I'll share the easy and very inexpensive way to make the donuts!!
I'm going to start a pot of spaghetti sauce to for ~drunch~ that's lunch/dinner with my boys. Every moment I have with them is precious.
This was a long sad weekend for me, homecoming at my sons school and due to circumstances beyond my control I couldn't be there. My son called last night as he was getting ready for the homecoming dance and I ended up losing control and crying on the phone. I tried not to but I am emotionally exhausted from all the events the past four months have put us through.
I hung up the phone, cried until my throat hurt, took strength in the comfort of Gary's arms around me and his words of love and got myself back together....okay, somewhat together.
I am so tired of other people having control over my life right now, I pray it's going to stop soon.
I am a strong woman, God knows my heart & soul.
So anyway I am wondering if anyone can tell me why I don't get the post from all the blogs I follow?? I have posts on my sidebar from blogs that were posted a year ago yet I don't get but a handful on my list? Am I doing something wrong? It frustrates me when I have to read posts on other peoples blogs because they aren't on mine???? Help!!!!

Here is the quick "recipe" but rather directions for the & cheap!!

*Can refrigerated biscuits
*Vegetable oil
*Plate with layers of paper towel

Cut the biscuits into four equal pieces each.
Mix sugar & cinnamon together to taste
Heat oil in a large deep pan until hot but not smoking
Drop 3-4 biscuits in the oil at a time turning almost immediately, these will brown quickly!
Once golden brown remove with slotted spoon shaking off excess oil and put in bowl of cinnamon sugar and stir them around to coat.
Place on paper towel lined plate.
Eat one....then another.....then another!!!!!

*You can also roll these in plain sugar or powdered sugar.
* I have made these dipped in chocolate, warm up a can of chocolate frosting in the microwave and stir till glossy and smooth (about 30 seconds at a time) and dip the tops.
*Boston cream donuts can be made by filling a freezer bag with purchased individual vanilla pudding cups (homemade doesn't work well, you need the consistency of pre made). Snip off a small edge at a corner and place in the side of the donut (make a small hole with a knife first) and squeeze the pudding into the center to fill. Sometimes I use a pastry bag and large tip if I'm making a lot. Once filled dip the top in heated chocalate frosting.
*You can play with this in many ways, I have made jelly filled rolled in sugar, finely chopped canned apple pie filling in the center rolled in cinnamon sugar, chocolate pudding filled rolled in powdered sugar.....go with your taste & creativity!!
Hope you try them!!!!
Have a blessed Sunday
