I made some more journals yesterday...Serendipity! Some recent finds from one of my favorite stores in Old Town Temecula, CA. A set of sweet candle holders, a darling pair of vintage pillowcases, a set of 8 PINK bowls, and my favorite find...this pattern! I was so excited to have found this pattern! This is the pattern we used for my sister-in-laws wedding in 1967! I was 15 with a short haircut as the picture and 103 lbs.! Our dresses were a sweet mellow-yellow and I felt wonderful and sassy! Ahhh, the 60's!
My sweet friend Elyse @cottage makes the cutest goodies! I have lots of her darling organizers and clips. I decided to use one of the cans to hold my water bottle! I always know where I put it!
Cute idea, huh Elyse!Feel free to give me a jingle anytime! Day or Night!
All dressed up and nowhere to go...so for now she will keep me company in my craft room!
I think my blouse looks better on her then it does me! LOL!
The necklace and brooch I have had for years. Remember this apron I bought from Bev at Sew On....And Sew Fourth ? My favorite apron ever!I am still working on moving into my new craft room and straightening the shelves! Almost done. See the little lamps? There are 6 of them. I am going to add some pretty little fabric yo~ yo's to the edges! The project for that is in one of the 4 pink tins. I keep my current projects in the tins and all I need to do it take it down and it is all there to work on. Wishing you a creative day!
Everyday I ride my bike to the mailbox! Our neighborhood mailboxes are grouped together and down the street, so going to get the mail is a treat riding my PINK bike! Even on a hot day, the breeze feels so good. The basket comes in handy for packages or putting little Samantha in! The fuzzy seat was my hubby's idea!
This is a very simple cobbler using ingredients from your pantry that we all have (stock up on cherry pie filling!). Similar recipes call for a cake mix, but no need for this one...just good old fashion ingredients! The recipe calls for a 8"x8" glass baking dish but I LOVE using my 4 quart dutch oven and it worked perfectly!
Easy Cherry Cobbler
1/2 cup margarine or butter (I used butter)
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
21-oz. can cherry pie filling
Place butter in an 8"x8" glass baking pan; set in a 325 degree oven to melt. ( I melted mine on the stove in the dutch oven on low). Combine sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and milk; mix well with a wire whisk. Pour over melted butter; do not stir. Spoon pie filling on top of batter; again, do not mix. Bake at 325 degrees for about an hour, until golden. Serve warm. Makes 6 servings.
Oh my goodness! I just got back from seeing the darling movie "Julie & Julia"!!!! A must see! A TRUE STORY! It is about a young woman who needed to fill a void in her life so she starting BLOGGING about cooking...she cooked/made every single recipe in Julia Child's Cookbook! It took her a year to do so. The movie is about that year and flashbacks of Julia Child's life as an adult!
I LOVE the movie!
Meryl Streep & Amy Adams do a wonderful job! You almost believe Meryl is Julia!
