    #FAll Series #3 Product Review MatMates Rubber Mat Insert #Outdoor #Indoor Rug #Discount Decorative Flags

                             Happy Fall Ya'll :) and thanks for stopping by Mamawj's Moment Away Today.
               I'm so glad that Fall is here, aren't you?  It's my favorite season to enjoy. I  know fall is here when we see the sour wood trees began to turn colors of a deep red, then all the other trees follow there after in changing to there coat of many colors here in eastern, Tennessee and our beautiful mountain peaks that I see from my front porch view roll on and on like a blanket of patchwork color.
            I love decorating my outdoors with things of color too for fall. I always put up a fall display in my front center yard with pumpkins, mums in flower pots, hay bails, and the scarecrow wooden figures that I enjoy making in my craft shop.
               This year and every year I always like to add some color and decoration to my porches entrance too, and let Fall be enjoyed there as well.
                 A perfect way to do just that is to add a beautiful outdoor/indoor mat to your doors entrance.
                             Look at this beautiful Fall designed door mat that I received for review for Discount Decorative Flags.
                                      Flags your saying to yourself???
                                                                     Yes, Flags..That's right.. The very best place online that you will ever shop for the guaranteed LOWEST priced items in House Flags to decorate your outdoors, and mats is found at   About Discount Decorative Flags  A great company that is located in Berlin, NJ and offers you over 2,000 designs in decorative Flags.As well as beautiful mats like the one I was blessed to review that you saw above.
                       Here it is again, for you to view.

    This is just one of my favorite relaxing spots to enjoy in my own outdoors around my home, my front porch. I love to make it welcoming for others as they enter and gives peace to me with pretty "eye candy" as I sit out there sipping my coffee and watching the hummingbirds on the feeders or that pretty fall blanket of color I see on the mountain tops view beyond that I get to enjoy.
                     You can dress up your doors entrance too. Not sure what design or theme you would like to go with? Well, grab you a cup or Joe, prop up your feet, go to the web site here of  Discount Decorative Flags and just browse until your hearts content from the over 2,000 designs you could choose from on so many Outdoor Large House Flags Mini Garden Flags Magnetic Mailbox Covers and more in Outdoor Home Decor where they offer you a 10% Guaranteed lower price
    Not sure where to display the decorative flags? Well, They hang so easy with the inexpensive Hardware in the flag pole and Metal-Flag-Bracket that holds them and you can attach the hardware to almost any outdoor surface to display them like the side of your house, the side of your porch like I do, or even on other outdoor structures that you want to add a flair of beauty too like Barns, or Garages, Garden Sheds, Your Business and place of work, Schools, on a large garden gate to your garden entrance, there uses are not just limited to your home.
        And At Discount Decorative you will find all these Brands at a greater savings in cost than any local store or online..No one beats there lower prices on
    Toland Evergreen Windswept Magnet Works Breezeart Carson NCAA NFL NBA MLB NHL

     I love the fact that I can have the same design in different places in my outdoor home decor because many of the designs you see on there flags can also be found on there mailbox covers.
    Perfect for Fall design to give your outdoors real curb appeal or makes a great Gift to give someone for any Occasion or Celebration Such as Baby Shower Birthday Graduation Party or Wedding

                You can read about all there large house flags here in my previous review

    So....Start with Fall, it's already here and give your outdoors a new welcoming look that both you & others will enjoy viewing.  There's so many Fall designs to choose too. I had the choice to pick which fall design I liked, trust me it hard since there were so many. But I wanted something that would carry me from fall, into Halloween, and straight up to thanksgiving, and this design called Pumpkin Cart did just that. It has all the colorful things you see or think of when you hear the words FALL. With its pumpkins, the old cart, the crows. And what better way to welcome your guest than to say "Welcome". I think this design has a folk art country feel to it which I love because that's just what I am, country.
              And I love it that you just about find the same design on any of there matching other items like large house flags, mini garden flags,magnetic mailbox covers, magnetic yard de-signs (that's right they are signs that you place in your ground that interchangeable magnetic designs you can change that also lets you display your house number so cool!! you must check out those out and come back for my product review on that item too coming soon).
                        These mats are so nice, so thick, and have a deep soft step to them. They are made of recycled rubber backing and has a durable polyester top. they are permanently dyed using a superior printing technique that gives a vibrant, long lasting color. they clean with mild soap and water.
        They can be enjoy outdoors or indoors. I don't have a roof over my front porch unlike my back porch that is a screened in one. And the rain has fallen on this mat now quite a few times and I haft to say that it has dried up each time, with no mildew scent, and still has it's vibrant color and soft feel when you step upon it.
        When the winter gets here I will take it up and store it until next year, but not because I think it will not hold up but simply so I have an excuse to buy a winter design to take it's spot lol. Just look at the winter designs they have to pick from at Discount Decorative Flags. I love this one and also the ones for Christmas as so pretty.
                            I may get this one with our last name letter initial on it for the holidays
                                                                      Holiday Monogram Wreath C Doormat Indoor Outdoor Floormat by Evergreen
                  Or I may buy a mini garden flag that also has the same door mat design and display in a flower pot by my doors entrance that is a topiary tree, I think that would look so warm & inviting for holiday guest to enjoy. Like this beautiful Poinsettia design found also in the matching mailbox cover and flags Scroll to the bottom of this page link here to see what I mean
    Red Poinsettia Noel Indoor Outdoor Christmas Doormat

             Browse the Categories Below and then go here >>to Discount Decorative to Start Shopping Now

    Join Free and get #Rewards

                    Have you ever heard of  If not , then I am happy to tell you about it.
    I love I have been a member since 2010 and the rewards you gain from using is awesome. To join is free and easy. And there are so many ways to acquire your free points which rack up very fast. Then you redeem those free points for free rewards which can be used at so many places like hotels, restaurants, retail stores et.
             This morning I wanted to print some coupons from before I go out to grocery shop, so instead of going straight to the web site to print them, I went to instead, signed in to my account, located from the search bar then printed my coupons of choice. And by doing so through I get points for each coupon I print and points for each coupon I use.
        Some other easy ways to rack up points is to simple open emails sent to your inbox from MyPoints. By doing so I can acquire 5 points per email and if I choose to also join some of those sites email newsletters or make purchases, I gain even more points. You do not have go go any further than just opening up the emails to gain points, but some you may choose too just depending on if it interest you. For example, one email to open and read maybe the JC Penny web site and then make a purchase. I shop at JC Penny Online quite often, so instead of going to there web site to shop, I check in to my account first, then shop at JC Penny via there web site to acquire my free points.
                   Your free points never expire. They ust build up until you decide how & when you want to redeem them. For Example, when my free points reach 1,600 I know that I can choose from many choices to redeem for a free $10 gift card to lots of places, like Apple Bees, Cracker Barrel etc. The more points I acquire the higher I can redeem for a higher amount gift card. And when I do choose my selection, that gift card is mailed to me free!! It's a win win no matter how you go!!
             So if your going to shop online anyway at places like JC and so so many other places, then do it via the web site where you gain free points to redeem for Free Cash, gift cards or travel miles.
             Go here to check it and see the many other ways to gain free points that I did not even mention, simply because theres so many that it would take me all day to tell you :)
                 I have a apple bees gift card in my purse I plan to use soon that I got free from mypoints and my points are almost up enough again to pick my next free gift card of choice. I have not yet redeemed for the travel points though I think that would also be a nice free treat to enjoy.
               I would suggest to you though that when you are on the MyPoints web site then reach the site you choose to shop with (example that you refresh both pages from time time until you finish shopping so that your web sites do not TIME OUT so that the web site has you signed in and active or your points will not reflect. That only happen to me once & I was able to still contact MyPoints and have them reflect my points that I gained from shopping but to insure your points go through while you are shopping and reflect the day you shopped.....just refresh your MyPoints web site so you are signed and and the TIME OUT does not run out on you while on your shopping site. Because unless you reach your shopping link via first...while signed in...your points will not be reflected..

    Turn old country ladder back chairs and wired rabbit cage sides into useful wall kitchen displays

           I just love a country kitchen with old folk style decor. When I go to the Cracker Barrel, I love seeing all the country ways they house there walls & open beamed ceilings with the old country pieces from long ago. You see any number of antique items from yesterday like old garden tools, kitchen utensil's etc.
           And though my kitchen is small, I try to find a corner or space for anything old or that has country charm to put on my walls. And as a crafter who loves to free hand paint, build things, sew etc. I am always looking at those old items in a different way thinking to myself, now how can I use that for another purpose.
         I admit it...When I see that someone has tossed old country items to the curb because they are broke, I pick them, bring them back to my craft building and make them into something country cute to use for myself or sometimes to gift or sell. Those old items from our past are hard to find and will die with time, never to be remade the way they were back then.
         At the age of 52, I remember so many of those items and using them or seeing my mom & grand maw use them. One of which was the wooden ladder back chairs. I mean real wooden hand made ladder back chairs. The kind they jointed together with wooden pegs, made from wood that was old strong & thick like oak or walnut, sometimes hickory wood. The post of the chairs were big and round and withstood the brunt of everything or anyone who sat in them. The seat bottoms were hand weaved with either twine string or rolled up brown paper or other items that made them last. And the prettiest thing about those very old chairs now is the grey weather turned color you see after years & years of age and being exposed to the weather elements.
           I just love the grey color on them.  I was tickled when I saw that the owner of an old house next to me had tossed out some very old wooden items. He is refurbishing that old house with the things from yesteryear and once even picked up a some things that I had tossed to the curb. So now when I see he has tossed out things, I ask him can I get them. We know each other now and are glad to share our tossed items :) 
             So I loaded up lots of broken wooden items to revamp & create into a whole new way to use them.
       Two of which I wanted to share with you today here in my post & pictures.
                The first one is the old antique wooden ladder back chair that has a pretty grey weather beaten color to it. The bottom of it was all broken and would of been to much work to even try to attach it back together or weave the seat back. So I made it into country wall decor for my red country kitchen that's as useful as it pretty. Using just the back frame of the chair, I then screwed on a red oval pail that I had gotten in a yard sale. And now it can house my aprons, plastic trash bag fabric holder, on the sides just by looping them over the top post corners and the center dowel rods can serve as dish towel holders and my red tin oval pail, now holds inside my potholders, oven mitts, so they are at easy reach. One of the pegs of the chair was still attached but short and jagged, so instead of cutting it off, I just used it as a slide on holder to house my old metal biscuit cutter, apple core slicer etc. Then to personalize it, I painted on my name with the country kitchen phrase and hot glued little plastic apples to it and a apple basket to the tops center rail since my kitchen theme is apples & roosters.
               I love how it turned out. Hope you enjoyed me sharing this idea with you. I still have the bottom wooden structure that I plan on making into something else for my kitchen, which I will share with you soon :)
           The other country kitchen decor idea I wanted to share with you today is how to use an old rabbit wired cage side.  I'm not so sure that this wired cage side was used for a rabbit, I found a couple of tiny feathers stuck in the wires so it may of been used for pigeons or maybe to raise chickens. But in the old days, they too used the real thick solid wood to build cages so the wood would stand up to time. And the wood on this cage was also grey weather beaten color. It was made using very tiny holed wire that looks to me to be like steal wire because its heavy gauged wire. And the side of the cage had handles at the top & bottom. And when I saw it I knew I wanted to make myself a wall rack to hold my kitchen serving utensils. But I didn't want just the bare wire to show and so I added country charm to it by adding  a wooden square piece to both the top and bottom the cages frame. That I had spray painted with black chalkboard paint first , then I nailed them to the frame. Then I added a copper tile to both of those in there centers. The copper tiles have roosters on them (the same tiles are behind my cook stove top back splash so it matches the room perfectly) then I stapled on fabric panel squares that I had that had hens laying eggs etc on them to the back of the wired frame. I then took one of the broken wooden pieces from the old ladder back chair and screwed it to the top of the cage piece. And I hand painted on a phrase and then added raffia and little eggs to it. At the bottom inside I put a nest and some straw and when I get time I am going to add more eggs inside there. Right now I am out of those :) Then I added black carpet tacks to the sides of the cage so they could hold all my kitchen utensils. Now I can just go to my wired rack and get the utensil I need to use instead of scuffling through a kitchen drawer to find ones I want to use. I just layed my wooden rolling pin on top of the cages top. And I may even come back and add a tiny off /on light to the top of it so the light can cast down upon it.  I can also choose to use the wire in the center to hang more small utensils. I bought some tiny s hooks to use for that. I loved how it turned out as well, To add country charm to my red country kitchen. I can use the black space around the copper tiles to write a phrase etc to with chalk. I will be back to share more country craft ideas with you.

                  And as mentioned above " I decided to try the progresso recipe for the "Cheese Stuffed Mini Meat Loaves" using the Fire-Roasted-Tomato Sauce that came in my review prize pack
                I used my mini loaf pan and they turned out great. I thought the flavors of  the roasted, caramelized tomatoes, oregano and bell peppers in the sauce really came through in the taste and was very good :)
                                Here is my finished  recipe item (I put bigger pieces of the cheese in mine :) yum!!
                                                                 Hot a smells so good!!
                     A closer look at what I served the "Cheese Stuffed Mini Meat Loaves with using the Progresso recipe starter Fire-Roasted-Tomato Sauce  "
           The recipe only calls for 1 cup of the sauce to be used from the can, leaving the remaining sauce for another recipe use. And yes, you have literally numerous ideas in recipes on the progresso web site to choose from for all these wonderful sauces. But you can also use the sauces and make your own recipe creations. That's what I liked about this new product line of sauces, the ingredients of flavor are already in them, cutting almost all of the hard work out. That being said, I decided to make a crock pot full of chili using my remaining sauce left from the can of Fire Roasted Tomato. And I had a few of the mini loafs left as well, so into the crock pot I tossed the remaining sauce, the mini loafs broken up into pieces, 2 cans of  pinto beans, 2 cans of red kidney beans, water and a pack of chili powder mix. And yum!! It was ready for another hot tasty meal to enjoy.  Cute oval serving dish in the photo huh??   If you are the lucky winner of this giveaway ~~you will have one to enjoy as well :)
