A Handmade Holiday Recipe .....

Hello my dears..Hoping everything is well in your world.  I expect you are all busy getting ready for the Season.  I have been puttering away making a few gifts, putting up a few decos, and of course making lists.  I do not seem to be getting ahead of the game but that is my usual normal. 
The past week or so I have been down for the count so to say.. Just when there is so much to do I contact something.... Thank you, Lord I THINK I am on the road to recovery..
As I can only sit I have worked on a few Handmade Holiday...
A couple of primitive table runners and a prim journal....

I had fun painting up a few tags for gifts.  I am NOT a painter but when you glue the flakes on it is not so noticeable.  LOL..
I also did up a few Soup Herb Bags...
I thought I would give you the recipe...
2 parts dried lovage
1 part dried parsley
1 part dried thyme
1 part summer savory
2 bay leaves
3 whole cloves
I used teaspoons for the measurement...
Place heaping teaspoons onto a 4 inch cheesecloth.
Tie tightly with a white string.
Store in a closed container...
In winter drop a bag into a potful of soup during the last hour.

You can make them up and place in a mason jar.

Then just decorate the jar.  I used a piece of lunch bag for a cover and then decorated a tag and tied it on...

Wouldn't they be lovely in a basket with some soup makings and perhaps a wood spoon and napkins?

I was blessed to have had some of my own herbs that I grew this summer and dried but they are always available at the Bulk stores.

Thanks so much for visiting.  I am sorry that I have not posted much the last bit but perhaps things will improve....please, Lord...
God bless...


  1. Hope you get to feeling better soon! The GIft tags are cutes! The Soup herbs are a neat idea.

  2. Such wonderful ideas - I especially like the runners.
    Hope you are feeling better soon.

  3. Sending prayerful hugs,for a speedy recovery! It looks as though you've still been able to create and they are all lovely!
    Take care, Faye and the Lord bless

  4. I love the recipe, Faye- and the decorated jar is just too cute... that sounds like a wonderful gift to give or recieve! (Or keep for yourself! *giggle*)
    I hope you are feeling better, my dear- prayers for your healing if not, and prayers of praise if you are!

  5. Love the soup herb bags! Great idea!
