Fresh flowers are something I (unfortunately) do not grow, but -heck- I've got bushes! While pruning a bit o' the landscapery, I've got a healthy bundle of green to decorate my kitchen using a recycled glass jar. Now, that's what I call "going green."
Hmmm....rosemary and just a wee bit of time.
Oh, ho, ho - another bad joke bites the dust.
Vines and vintage. Trimming up the overgrown Butterfly vine in the front yard, I braided and wove the long strands together to make a wreath. My Indian name is "Runs With Scissors."
I picked up a few elegant vintage luggage pieces yesterday at a local antique shop for a total steal. The brown one pictured is a new purchase, the cream Samsonite was my grandmother's that she took to nursing school. Very special.
ShaZZAM! Two more fabulous finds (under $25 each) at the antique store. I am still in awe of the stellar shape of the interiors of the luggage.
The $1 vintage shirt from the thrift store. (I was a busy bee yesterday. A gloriously happy, busy bee.)
And, of course, Thomas the Tank Engine. Boots for a couple bucks at the thrift store.
Wilder insists on wearing them on the wrong feet. Every. Day. At least he's wearing shoes now!
Oh! And here, I must share my not-so-sinful sweet indulgence:
Creamy Faux Crisp a la Strawberries
(makes one delicious serving)
- Frozen Strawberries (4-5) microwaved until thawed
- 2 heaping tablespoons low fat or fat free cottage cheese
- 3 heaping tablespoons low fat vanilla yogurt
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup Kashi's GoLean cereal (GoLean Crunch is yummy, too, if you have strong teeth...)
- 2 big dollops of fat free cool whip
UGH! So stinkin' delicious. I have this for breakfast, dessert, etc. Protein packed, low fat, sweet and scrumptious!
