Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you all so much for the kind comments about Mary Ann - I am really enjoying the stitching and the Belle Soie.... I always love using that stuff!!
Last Saturday we hit a few estate sales and a couple of Consignment/Thrift Shops...
I did find a few things...
A couple of super Christmas books - a lovely illustrated version of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" and "The Dreaded Feast" an anthology of humorous fiction, nonfiction and poetry about the Holiday Season, I also found another Longaberger Basket and a great Franciscan creamer in the Desert Rose pattern - I have no idea why I bought this little pitcher - I don't collect it nor do I have room for it......but it was not much money, in perfect condition and pretty.... I need to find it a good home with someone who collects "Desert Rose".... any suggestions????
With summer upon us - I can tell that by the calender since the weather here in the City has been hovering in the low 60s (gotta love SF in the summer!!!!!)
I whipped up one of our favorite summer salads..
Broccoli Bacon Salad - it goes super with BBq'ed stuff !! I'll post my version of this recipe over a Blacksheep Bakes at some point.
That's gonna have to wrap it up for the week sports fans. I wanted to let you know that I will be away from the Blog next week - I will be in Florida visiting my Mom for her Birthday - she will be turning 86 next Friday!!
Until next time - Take care,
