Full to the brim

"I should like now to promenade around your gardens--
apple-tasting -- pear-tasting -- plum-judging --
apricot-nibbling -- peach-scrunching -- nectarine-sucking,
and melon-carving. I have also a great feeling for
antiquated cherries full of sugar-cracks --
and a white currant-tree kept for company."
John Keats

Beauty in the natural world,,,, love Keats, perfect for the canning and harvest. Adore the acorn and illustration. What is it about the acorn that is so simple and yet it is so beautiful to look at and hold? No matter any many times in my life time I see one I want to pick it up and hold them -- then I leave them for the squirrels out on the tray in the winter.

Have a lovely week,
joanny

#268. You're such a goof!

Leslie said...

I just love coming here. From Keats to Smashing Pumpkin(s). Silly...

Acorns always make me want to make acorn dolls. Did you ever do that with your girls? We had a pattern from somewhere - little wire bodies and painted acorn faces and felt outfits. They were fairies and elves and completely enchanting...

Jodi said...

Nancy - glad you got it

Jodi said...

Leslie, I'm a walking contradiction :)
An acorn doll? I'm swooning. Never saw one.

Rayanne said...

Beautiful photos.
daydreamer...so sweet!

Kerrie said...

you're very welcome. :) Blessings on your week, friend!

Kara said...

Jodie,

What a wonderful blog you have. I know your creativity blesses your Creator!

I enjoyed your pictures of thankfulness.

Blessings,
Kara

Jodi said...

Thanks, Kara!

Cheryl said...

You really do spot the most beautiful and intriguing images. I love the images of acorns, wooden platters and quince jam. I can't help playing in my head with the line "a white currant tree kept for company". I feel a doodle coming on!

Nancy said...

Oh! And completely unrelated to this post, but I was at Stuff-Mart today and employees were stocking shelves with Christmas decorations, and they were being arranged BY COLOR! And I thought, "Clearly, the head honchos at Stuff-Mart are loyal followers of Jodi's blog and are following her arranging-books-by-color example."

Can there be any other opinion on the subject?

Jodi said...

Either that or I have to start wearing a tinfoil cap on my head so they'll stop reading my thoughts. Vaminos, Stuff-Mart!

Nancy said...

I wonder a lot of things about you, my acorn-loving friend, but it never occurred to me to wonder about your denomination. You are my sister in Christ; that's good enough for me.

I will too get you into trouble.

I think I'm going to wear a tinfoil cap while writing my next blog post. Vaminos? It's like you're speaking a whole other language...

Southern Gal said...

Sweet list with wonderful pictures. Thank you for visiting me today!

emily wierenga said...

Jodi said...

Nancy, did you get the signs? Vaminos, children, vaminos!

amy in peru said...

Lisa notes... said...

Love the Keats' words. Love the pictures. You reveal such a sweet heart through your choices of both.

Rachel said...

Bounty, this is a great table spread! Smashing Pumpkin love your wit and humor! I have been looking at Christmas decorations and at Fred Meyer they have squirrel and acorn ornaments always makes me think of you when I see them. Hope your having a great week!

Kristi in the Western Reserve said...

Such a lovely time of year. This whole week is supposed to be sunny here in ne Ohio and I think I HAVE to get out and soak it up before November weather sets in!

Love your photos....I collect small things that have squirrels and acorns in them. I think I have to put them up on the hutch cupboard with my grandmother's turkey dishes and get with the season!

Brian Miller said...

Claudia said...

Ostriches Look Funny said...

this post was full to the brim with AWESOMENESS! Loved every ding dang thing about it.

Deborah said...

Beautiful post Jodi..
Sweet little daydreamer and that is the cutest little acorn...
we have them all over one part of our lawn
underneath our favourite tree...

Deborah xo

Nancy said...

Yes, Jodi...it took me a couple of days. I was busy drinking water with amoebas in it. When we are sitting next to each other in eternity, can we recite the entire movie by heart?

Did you get my quote?

"Can there be any other opinion on the subject?"

Jodi said...

"Yes, there can; for mine is totally different. Will you hear it?"

Kim Hyland said...

Acorns . . I love acorns! Thanks for visiting. I've been feeling fine. Life is just crazy with getting ready to move (next weekend). Hopefully, I'll get back here more when things settle. I've missed your posts. :)

Joan said...

Love the fair daydreamer...
Keat's oozy woozy words, homemade cards, Redware, Pewter, yellow pumpkin, bumpy bread, all your handmade feast and jam...whispers of
"Arise, Take, and Eat."
Think I shall!

deb said...

This is all so wonderful. Those jars... oh I want brimming jars popping in my kitchen again. It's been too long.
