About Me

My photo
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
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Which came first? The Chicken or the Egg?

Good Morning to All.....

It is a crafty day for me today...the weather is is wintertime. after all...
Out of the loop yesterday...the sciatica...oh the sciatica, I moved the hook yesterday, the heating pad my best friend, finished up 1 cottage. Today, is a less painful day...and I decided to make some salt dough,
for an idea that I had. I found 2 cookie cutters a peep, & duck at the Antique Flee market in Amish $ 1.00 each..., I already have a chicken, which was my mom's., this is what I did this morning...not hard at all...

In this case the chickens, & duck came first....rolling little tiny eggs of salt dough...
and then there is this little gem..I've had my eye for a while...we don't have much space...and this doesn't take up much space...
the white cabinet...I can see my potholders hanging with glee from inside the glass..I can't get around
to see what it looks like around the back and side..the glass is in tact..what a charming little door...
$110...seems a wee bit high for this do you think? This is a consignment place...I wonder if they would take less if I offered less.?

Enjoy your day...I'm off making eggs....the salt dough kind of course....:)

ps...the recipe....
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water...

mix and knead...roll and cut out...I love the way the dough feels...I like working with dough whether it is the kind you eat or not...something very basic and natural about it.....calming and soothing.....
