Vase Redo

Hi everyone,

Just a quick idea. I recently need to set up a display with a plaid theme. Nothing seemed to work and I didn't want to buy another vase so I found an old sweater of mine and cut off the arm. I slipped it over the vase.

It still didn't look right. So around the sleeve cuff I threaded red yarn for a rustic look then I hot glued two of the sweaters buttons on the front of the vase and finished the buttons off with two covered buttons I made out of plaid. Sorry for the poor quality of the photos. They are so dark but that's how it is why up here in the Northwest.

I think it turned out really cute. Now I am sweater hunting all the time.

Have fun.

I Have Been Busy

I have been so busy. I finished up a beautiful reception a couple of weeks ago. The centerpieces were incredible. Pictures will be coming soon.

Now I have a show at Bethany Village on Nov. 29th. It's the tree lighting event. There are going to be a ton of vendors. It's should be really fun and the our local Fox news channel will be there.

I have been working on my Hot Toddy Bar craft night coming up on Dec 4th. I am so excited the Hot Toddy Bar is looking beautiful. Plaid and vintage Christmas put together there is nothing better. I can't wait to show photos of that.

And I have been working on product for the shop and Etsy and the show and and I don't know what else.

Here is a sneak of my latest vintage tags. These images are from the 40's my favorite time period. The tages turned out so cute. The colors are vibrant and fun. Puts me in the mood for a little Bing and Fred at Holiday Inn.

Ho Ho Ho!

These will be Fancy That next week.
Ciao and Happy Thanksgiving.

Wonderful Trip

Our friends son turned 14 and we all went to Seattle to celebration. The trip was a sports fans dream.

First it was the Mariner's game. What a beautiful day for baseball. But before the game we went to
the bullpen for warm ups and got some autographes. The nice players even game Joe a ball they had been using and one of the pitchers signed it. Wow! Very exciting.

After the game we went to lunch and walked over to Century Link Field to watch a
Sounders vs Panama game.

Very fun. Really good seats.
There was even a fight that the boys found very cool.

Celebration! We had our scarves.

We have never screamed so hard. There is something about a soccer game . . .so thrilling.  

After the game. It was very warm and clear. Love that skyline. I miss living in this beautiful city.

The next day was equally as pretty. This is the view from our balcony. Lake Union looking as lovely as ever.

Then . . .mom time

Of course we had to do this  . . .

and this.

What a wonderful trip

If you are in Portland

We went to the Grill Cheesed Grill the other day and then the Waffle Window. Both are outstanding and really fun for kids.

The Grilled Cheese Grill in SE Portland has a double decker. The boys loved eating in side the bus.

And the sandwiches were very good. Check it out The Grilled Cheese Grill

The Best Pita Chip Recipe

I have got to share. I found this recipe in this cookbook my friend gave me. It is the easiest and best recipe for pita chips and it has really helped me with my craving for potato chips. :)

I thought I would share:

Pita Crisps

I package whole wheat pita bread
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
freshly ground pepper

mix together

(i use sea salt and sprinkle some on after I put the chips on the cookie sheet.)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grab a cookie sheet.

1. cut each pita round in half.
2. open each pita round up and separate
3. brush evoo mixture on pita
4. use a pizza cutter to cut pita in wedges
5. place on cookie sheet and pop in oven
6. bake for 20-30 minutes. I usually only do 20 and they come out perfect

You are done. They are crisp and delicious. Try them with hummus. Yum

A Day On The Farm

The boys and I spent the day at my sisters house south of Portland. We picked the last of the pie cherries. 
We went home with a ton of beans and cherries and plums. So yummy.

We picked yellow plums.

The pears weren't ready :( 

We feed the cows. So cute and so big. Wow.

We went home and made pie. What a lovely day and thank goodness we had a sunny day.
