Etsy News

It seems when there are lots of sickness lingering just around the corner waiting to hitch a ride back to my house.  We have battled a stomach bug as well as sinus trouble for the past couple of days.  The sinus thing may drag itself out simply because this is a typical Louisiana January.  Seventy-five degrees one day and 25 the next.  Dry and clear and cold then rainy and warm again. This kind of weather reaks havoc on our noses.

Now a little more pleasant news:  I have one lone apron listed in my etsy shoppe.  Now don’t you all run over each other getting there!  But do go and take a look.  Well, and buy it if you like! I will be posting more very soon.  Along with some other goodies.

Have a great day and hey, try to stay well!


Sneak Peek at the Toile Apron for Kelly (shhhhh, don't tell her)

I have the apron ready to mail.  And planned to mail it Monday BUT I just got an email from the author of French General Home Sewn and she is sending me a autographed book plate for the book soooo..I think that is worth the wait, which should only be a day or two longer or maybe I will just mail it separate.  Who knows it may come in Monday’s mail and then there will be NO wait.  toileaprongiveaway

Also thought you might like to see one of my many latest acquisitions from etsy.  Just so you know, etsy is addictive.


Isn’t that the most cleaver watch band ever?  Especially for someone who loves to sew! Check it out here.


Scenes from Supper

greenbeansI am not feeling terribly inspired to write this morning.  Trying to find my inspiration and nursing a bit of a headache.  These weather changes really aggravate me!  Cold or hot- make up your mind!  So I will post you a few ‘”foodie” pictures from last night’s very delicious supper of Tandoori Lamb and sides.



And here are the beginnings of dessert.  I made crepes.  I whipped up the batter and it chilled while we ate supper.  Then I offered up strawberry, blueberry, peach, Nutella or citrus sugar for filling.  Served with homemade whipped cream.  Very delicious.  And I had enough crepes left over (see notes below) for today if we like


I have more pictures to post but will save them for later.  Oh…and here is a glimpse of my new prairie skirt.


I LOVE it.  I ordered if from Urban Prairie Girl (etsy- DUH)

Oh yeah, one more thing ~ in honor of Thoughtful Thursday I will leave you with this:

‘The creative person is both more primitive and more cultivated, more destructive, a lot madder and a lot saner, than the average person.’  — Frank Barron

Notes on Crepes:

For immediate use: Stack crepes as they are baked and keep covered. Store at room temperature.

To refrigerate: Wrap stacked crepes well in foil or plastic wrap and store in refrigerator for no more than two or three days. Let the crepes stand at room temperature about an hour before filling or serving.

To freeze: Separate crepe layers with wax paper and put in a tightly sealed container. Crepes will freeze well for up to four months but handle with care as frozen crepes are fragile and will break easily.

Allow crepes to thaw completely before unwrapping and separating to prevent tearing.

Filled crepes may be frozen but use discretion in selecting fillings. Choose foods that normally freeze well and remember that crepes absorb liquid easily and become soggy.
