Some Lovely Things

Hello friends! Today I have a bit of a picture collage for you today for a glimpse of some of what I've been up to this past time that I've been quiet.  The Lord Jesus has been so good to me!

First are a couple cards that made just for fun.  For some reason these images caught my eye.  They're from Ephemera's Vintage Garden.

Then I was inspired to crochet a shawl with the yarn a wonderful friend of mine gifted me with.
It's so soft and warm. :)

Then there has been the regular enjoyment of fresh butter making and the buttermilk to go with it.

Homemade vaseline for those sore dry spots or I add essential oils to make my own vicks.

Monkey balls anyone?  I love making cinnamon rolls this way.

I finally learned to make fluffy bread. :) Just add less flour (since I don't sift mine) I know it's one of those things that the recipe calls for, but I ignore. :(

Then I learned to make my own wet pipes and glass cleaner wipes.  I used some containers that a friend didn't want anymore from her Lysol Wipes.  They work great!

These are the ingredients I used to make these wipes, and I added essential orange oil to the glass ones.

Then I ran out of washing soda...then couldn't find any in any of the stores in town.  SO I learned to make my own. :)Very easy.  400F for almost an hour and that's it.

My children spoiled me for mother's day and my girls gave me wonderful cards that they made themselves.  Such a treasure!

Well that's it for now.  I will be posting more this coming month because I'll be guest designing for a wonderful do check back this coming week to see. :) 
Have a beautiful day!
