Making Beeswax Corn and More

Pack a lunch....this is a long one!

A while back I purchased this thingy at a yard sale.....it had plastic apples on it....but I knew it was meant for corn. But I never did anything with it, and it resurfaced after our move.

Well, I was in the hardware store the other day and saw this....

CRITTER CORN....That is what I need!
First I melted my beeswax that I keep in a crock pot
then I dipped the corn

then rub it in cinnamon....

I like to add a little cinnamon fragrance oil and rub it in good

Then I placed on the corn dryer
It also looks great laying in a bowl or trencher and smells good too!

As you know my Birthday was October 1st.....well my husband ask me what I wanted. I told him I wanted some dishes, he looked a little surprised, I have never been much of a dish girl. When I saw some blog buddies showing off their Pfaltzgraff Folk Art...I loved them. Anyway he turned me loose on ebay and told me to find some and I did......

This is my favorite piece...
my crow pie plate
but I do love my teapot....in fact I told my children that when I die to cremate me and put my ashes in this teapot! LOL All of the pieces are the original made in the USA (except the two sundae dishes and the little trinket boxes....they came in a lot) There are a few more pieces I would like to have....but I have to stay off the ebay for now! It is so addictive!
Look what the mailman brought me today.... My winnings from Stefanie Rose Petals and Rust

I love my scale and look at the sweet little tags.....Thanks Stefanie!
