remember

apples that remain on the trees after the harvest

Darling elves around Rose Tea Cottage simply don't get any!!! I am a big apple eater, which reminds me it's time for my midnight snack...you guess it - an apple. Darling, have a lovely weekend, enjoy the apples.

Love & Hugs

Beautiful...all accept the mouse. I am petrified of even the tiniest mouse. I know it is silly, but ooooh...they creep me out.

I have to admit that I'm not the biggest fruit eater, but I do love apples. Some of my favorite childhood memories are apple picking in New Jersey and Ontario. :)
