My new little Erzgebirge figure, welcoming Spring, carrying a pussywillow
First batch of tasty strawberries resulting in a strawberry tart
just a little spot by my desk
I made the most ridiculousy silly error. I forgot the fundamental principal of scheduling auctions on Ebay…note that they are in Pacific time!! I was rushing around this afternoon trying to get them all listed, and I goofed!! So they should all start at 9:30 pm EST this evening, and they will be starting 5 minutes apart, so they won’t all be up at once. Sorry, to anyone who may have checked and thought "what the heck?"
Also Country Living featured Alicia, and of course there’s not a soul who hasn’t heard of her blog!
They did a nice piece on Stacey Bear also, whose work I have seen through Earth Angels Toys and whose home is absolutely lovely! It’s kind of what I aspire to make my house like. Built about the same time, but not nearly as spiffy as far as the decorating goes!
Here is another recipe from Chocolate & Zucchini, which is turning out to be a pretty useful little book. I may actually have to buy it, instead of checking it out of the library over and over again. So, this time I made the Yogurt Cake, Gateau au Yaourt, and it is completely going to be a staple in this house. It is so simple and so delicious. It is the kind of cake you could add little fillings to, or endless varieties of toppings. But, it is yummy on its own. It’s a cake you should bake just to have around in case someone stops by. It seems very old fashioned. There you have it. Cake of the week.
Here’s a little wholesome vignette for you…sweet potatoes hanging out in a basket waiting for dinner and a little honey pot my mom brought me back from NC the other day.
Some vintage folksy fabric I purchased to make Clara a dress. It is all cut out and ready to be sewn into an adult dress already. Wonder why they never finished it…hmm…Since the pieces for the skirt are already all cut out, I may just stitch them up and make myself a skirt as well. Of course, then Clara and I would have matching outifts, which may or may not be silly.
Here’ something to peruse with your morning coffee…the new issue of SMALL magazine. Tons of cute stuff in here!
