Just a few Snippets...


Good Evening everyone.. 
How are you all tonight? 

Terry is at the Flea Market in Sussex with our son so I am here with just Sammi snoring over on the couch.. smile.. 

Just thought I would share a few pics ...


The hens and chickens are doing rather well in their cast iron pot..



A rather dear little embroidery that I picked up at the Thrift store.. 
I kind of like it... smile..


I made two more batches of rhubarb jams... 
Raspberry and Strawberry.. 
I drained the can of pineapple and it makes a thicker jam.. 
I think I like it better.... 


An old apron hanging behind the pantry door... 


A green bean and feta salad I made for a couple of sweet friends who visited .... with gifts.. smile.. 
Thanks, my dears..



A little trinket hanging on a window sill... 

I love Rosemary.. 
Do you?  
I think it is one of my top 5 favorite herbs.. 
Let me see.. 
There is basil, parsley, lovage, oregano, and yes rosemary... 

The weeks are passing by so quickly... 
I am going to start on my pickles tomorrow, Lord willing.. 
Terry is bringing home cucumbers tonight.. 
And green beans... 
And green tomatoes.. 
Oh my.... 
I will be doing garlic dills, bread and butters, sweet dill. chow chow and dill beans in my sleep... smile.. 

Well, I shall say farewell for tonight.. 

Thank you all for your lovely visits and sweet notes.. 
I am still trying to reply to each one.. 
Hope you enjoy that...

Take care, my dear friends and we will chat again soon.. 

God bless and keep you all..

  3. Hello Faye, Your hens and chickens look so healthy. I usually keep mine in the garage all winter wrapped in newspapers but ...they did not make it through last winter. It must have been the mild winter. I should get some more. I love the little embroidery picture. The little bird is darling. (I know you tend to favor things with birds.)

    Hope Terry finds lots of fun things at the flea market.

    Sweet dreams, Dear Heart........

    1. Hi Sue.. Terry did not find a thing.. smile.. He must just go to see people and be with Trev... Oh well... I have enough to sell ...
      I love bird things, too.. I leave my hens and chickens out all winter and don't do anything and they come back every year.. Weird, eh?
      Take care, my dear..

    1. Hello dear Mary Ann... I am sorry about the dressing.. I just used an olive oil and lemon and parsley dressing.. I just guess... Equal oil and lemon and some parsley, salt and pepper ... That's it.. smile..
      Let me know if you like it..
      Oh, I french cut the beans and added red onions, tomatoes and feta..
      I blanched the beans until almost tender..
      Blessings..
