Pumpkin Pickin' & Hayrides ..by our Very Own Aunt Ruthie of Sugar Pie Farmhouse

Many years ago yes dating to the late 90's early 2000's ... I had the pleasure of meeting Sweet "Aunt Ruthie" or "Ruthann" of "SUGARPIE FARMHOUSE"
We met at the local antique mall where Abbey and I had 3 shops. She and Summer ( her daughter) used to come in and walk the aisles looking for just that special something. If you have visited Sugarpie Farmhouse then you'll know by the photos of her home that she truly does pick out some wonderful and amazing pieces to decorate her home.. and if you haven't visited Sugarpie Farmhouse then I urge you to take some time and visit ...you won't be dissapointed.
Our dear sweet Aunt Ruthie has an amazing talent for words, wisdom, and homemaking which you'll find throughout her website and in the several books she has written.
Aunt Ruthie is full of good old fashioned wisdom that spans the ages .. she shares her love for the Lord, for her family and for the blessed life she has.
I have had the priveledge and honor to receive an early copy of her newest book which is debuting today for the first time on her website...
