A Shift to Beading, Afghan Update, and Flowers (of course)

Posted by mrssmythe on May 18, 2017 in Baking, Crafting, Critters, Garden, Week in Review |

This Mothers’ Day, I sat down at the dining room table and spent several hours playing with a beading kit I’d picked up some weeks back. It was at a bargain store and very inexpensive. One of the projects was this necklace. I love it. It’s light, easy to wear, and goes with several things in […]

After last week’s chicken trauma, Ginger declared herself a vegetarian. So – off I went to the library to find some inspiration. I came home with The New Moosewood Cookbook and promptly made a batch of Gypsy Soup (You can find the recipe HERE) Think sweet potatoes, chick peas, and lots of spices. Absolutely delicious!
