- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Why don't my sugar cookies ever turn out?
The burning question of the day...I cannot find a really good sugar cookie recipe, and would love to find a vintage one, like I did with the cheesecake from 1940. But why do my cookes flatten out and look like potatoe chips...? I made some today, and I even put some lemon verbena in them, the batter tasted fine and they flattened out and look like pancakes....
