Show and Tell Friday ~ Antique Plate

This plate belonged to my husbands parents. I know very little about it or how they acquired it. The back has a stamp that reads MIGNON Z.S. & C BAVARIA. Wish I knew more about it and its origins. Visit Kelli for more Show and Tell Friday
Show and Tell
Accomplished: Thirteen new Cushion/Pillows (and a table topper) ... just have to hand stitch them closed...
and he is thinking I made all of these just for him!

The End Result

See how this sewing machine is tucked way back in the foyer closet right there under the coats and jackets with the umbrellas, tool box and tripods....
...and what does, this, plus...
produce in me? Well, maybe not tears...

But I would much rather be in the kitchen baking or cooking, in the garden weeding or digging, even cleaning is a preference... perhaps blogging... but alas... covering pillows and cushions for the porch is on my agenda this afternood. I know this is a relatively simple project and I can fudge my way through it, but sewing is just not my cup of tea. BUT... I know I will enjoy all the happy times we spend on the porch, swing, chatting, laughing, watching hummingbirds, people going by and pretty skys! And that makes me ...

Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread

Did you know National Banana Bread day is the 23rd of February?  It is a great way to use overripe bananas but so loved because it is moist and sweet and almost cake-like. The addition of chunks of chocolate in this quick bread make it a classic!

Irish Soda Bread and an Irish Hymn

 What would St Patrick's Day be without a traditional loaf of Irish Soda bread. And today is a good reason to bake up a loaf even if you aren't Irish. It is just perfect with a cup of tea and yet hearty enough to serve along side a meaty entree.

Color Week Sunday ~ RAINBOW


From two little ones who wanted me to add their colorful pictures... Color
by Christina Rossetti

What is pink? a rose is pink
By a fountain's brink.
What is red? a poppy's red
In its barley bed.
What is blue? the sky is blue
Where the clouds float thro'.
What is white? a swan is white
Sailing in the light.
What is yellow? pears are yellow,
Rich and ripe and mellow.
What is green? the grass is green,
With small flowers between.
What is violet? clouds are violet
In the summer twilight.
What is orange? Why, an orange,
Just an orange!
