Currently Trending: Cheap 'n Easy

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!
