Hi Girls! I had a few questions on my last post, so I figured I could answer them here... The new dish towels were from Moda Home. I just adore their fabric lines and Home Accents too! Yesterday the table cloth I ordered finally came, its part of the Dairy Fresh Collection, which I am in love with! I have more pictures of it below. So onto a few other things :) Hmmm, like what to make for lunch? I can relate to this Vintage picture below as I am often perplexed for a new recipe or something warm and yummy! I go on kicks now and then and probably because of the still icy weather, I am dreaming of pasta and bread a lot:)...
Sooooo, with the help of my new table cloth and some yummy Vintage Le Creuset cookware, I am feeling warmer already :) I would love to make you all some! You are so wonderful to stop by and visit, so its the least I could do! :)
I hope my bread turns out this pretty! I used to bake my own bread weekly , but I haven't in while. I can feel the itch coming on to do it again! Maybe by my next post. I have to do something warm ( !! )to get through this long winter!

Here's an up close of the table cloth, I love the edge with the ruffle! This girl can never have too many ruffles!
Isn't "she" pretty and sweet? I loved it so much I wanted to name it :) lol....maybe the winter is making me crazy, lol, but I think I'll call her Ruby, because it's a jewel of a tablecloth. Very un-fancy pants, perfect for me....
I had a few people ask where I got my decoupaging images from, I usually cut them from books I have or catalogs too. ( I photocopy first ). I use a lot of Gooseberry Patch and last time on the Recipe box I used the Moda Home catalog ! I learned from you decoupaging experts that they are called decoupaging "scraps" which, btw, made it a heck of a lot easier to google and find some! I just got this book below and figured I'd post it because it has the neatest Valentines and card making ideas too! So Gooseberry was good for 2 things this time!
I also had a few emails with people asking for more blue fabrics and with checks, so I am adding these onto my Website this weekend, if you see something you like , just send me an email! And Thank you also for all your kind and encouraging words about my website! They were so immensely appreciated !!
I wanted to add this picture below because when I find a great site, I love to share! and as some of you know, I adore collecting miniatures! I only just started this year , But this shop I found was too sweet to keep a secret! If you love kitchen miniatures, I think you will enjoy the artists talents! I plan on only getting a few pieces to add to my kitchen hutch, or maybe on a shelf, but they add such whimsy to a space and always make for neat conversation pieces! The one below is from The Miniature Cake Shop, so cute and what attention to detail !!
....and a little update: I found a spot for my recipe box, I think it looks right at home here :)
Well, its time to go clean the house , maybe I will finally get that Pantry done!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend coming up! We are expecting a heat wave here :) of about 39 degrees that is..... :) lol
Thank you so much for stopping in for a visit! You are all so wonderful!!
