Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thanks so much for all your kind comments about Fridays Post. Over the weekend we did our usual things - starting off Friday evening at the mall. Macy's was having one of their perpetual "One Day Sales" so we took advantage of it and picked up some K-Cups for the Keurig - gotta love a sale!!
I stitched on a few pieces over the last couple of days...
Mary Ann got quite a bit of attention...... and I joined a SAL so I started that piece...
"Mystery SAL al Castello" from Niky's Creations. I am using a 36ct piece of Vintage Meadow Rue and the called for DMC. I think this will be a great SAL.. I am loving the birds!!
I also got to a few Thrift/Consignment Shops and picked up a few do-dads...
I love the child's mug with the enameled rabbits, and you know my passion for English Transferware.... I had to have this lovely dinner plate. "A World Lit by Fire" is one of my all time favorite books - I have worn out two paperback copies and when I came across this 1st Edition hardback for a $1 how could I pass it up - and the Christmas book, well you know me and Christmas!!
As you know Rico has the green thumb at our house - and to prove it once again I have this lovely thing blooming away...
This little orchid is pretty old and has bloomed every year for the past few years - if it was left in my care it would have given up the ghost a loooong time ago!!
- and - I baked up this pretty terrific cake yesterday.....
It is a "Caramel-Apple Cake" and comes from Barandie over at The Country Cook. Only a few ingredients come together quickly and turn out a moist tasty cake that goes just great with coffee!!
That's about it for today sports fans!! Thanks again for stopping by - do stop again!!
