An owl of a giveaway and preserved lemons recipe...

Happy Saturday Evening.... 
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth tonight.. 
So glad you dropped by... 

Just wanted to share a wee giveaway with you tonight to celebrate the changing of the season... 
We will now be getting ready for Christmas, eh? 

One of our grandsons visited with me yesterday and while we chatted I made this wee owl... 

As you can see he is only as big as my hand.. smile.. 

To get a chance to win him there are 2 requirements.. 

1.. Be a follower of the blog .

2.. Leave a comment and tell me what state or province you live in..

We will draw a winner on Monday night.. Nov.. 5... 
You can live most anywhere as this is such a small parcel.. 

 Now I also mentioned that we made some preserved lemons...

I love these and try to have a bottle always on hand.. 
I chop them up and put them in my salads or fish or on my oven fries or in my salsa.... yada yada yada.. smile... 

Here is one link although there are many on the web.. 

I followed this recipe and didn't add any spices.. 
Nor did I use a mason jar as I had just washed this one and it was sitting there on the counter waiting to be used.. smile... 

Well, dear ladies have an awesome Lord's Day and we will try and get together again after the weekend.. 

I will be looking for your comments... 
God bless..

  19. I love the little owl, Faye. My grandmother, who passed away 2 years ago, had such a love for owls. She had owl everything in her home. Even her cookoo clock had an owl that came out to announce the hour. LOL! This little one reminds me of her. I would love to be entered for a chance to win. Thank you!

  20. Faye, I forgot to mention that I reside in the great State of Maine! Just about a mile or so from the New Brunswick border.

  21. Hi Faye..
    So cute, that owl. How fun to spend time with your grandson, and do a creative craft together. I'm certain that is a precious memory, he will always have.

    I'm going to give your peasant bread a try.. will let you know how it turns out.

    We are set to have pleasant weather here, in Utah, and I'm hoping to get just a few more outside things done.
    I bought some darling metal sunflowers, that will look perfect placed behind some of my herbs.

    May your week be full of smiles, a little laughter, and many blessings.


  22. You have a wonderful Lord's Day, too my dear. We are going to church in Langley today, my hubby pastored there for five years, we were there for 12 altogether, so we will see many dear friends.
    I love the little owl, and I live in Manitoba!
    Hugs, Cindy
