KEEPING BUSY

I just can't seem to sit still - I was supposed to go away this weekend but plans didn't materialize so I tore into some much needed work around here.

See these pictures of the family room beams/baskets??


Here's where they all ended up!


This year I took pictures of the placement before taking them down so the chore of putting it all up again would be a tad easier (on Doug!).  We can switch around a bit but the arrangement works well the way we have it so don't want to mess it up.  I know, some of you probably do this more often - but it really isn't the most fun tasks to do so they get washed once a year come Spring/Summer!

Then inside to get other things done...it is 89 degrees right now and I have had enough of out doors heat - last week I started making more 'eggs' - this time they are a Robin's Egg Blue - aged a bit and then sprinkled with Cinnamon and Cloves - Oh they smell soooo good!  I had a hard time finding the exact color that was in my 'minds eye' so I had to make my own.  Blue plus a bit of Brown and lots of Green and it worked!!


I have ours tucked in with my redware eggs
I will have them for sale on my website later today.

Yesterday we went to Dan DiPaolo's barn sale and found this sweet Bakery sign - found the perfect spot next to the pantry

If you are in the area - here are his open hours


That's all for me this week.
Hope you all had a wonderful and safe holiday last weekend.

Blessings
Karen

  2. Love that egg color. I've tried mixing that shade before and it was not easy to get just right. I always loved the basket dipping and drying ritual, but now they are all stored in the attic.

  3. I love the blue. They are just beautiful. That was a clever idea to take a picture. I see you had your energy bar too. I love the sign. What a perfect place for it.

  5. Washing baskets--such a worthy labor of love. I love the eggs, and it is a great reminder I still plan on creating some redware eggs from the emu eggs my mother gave me some time back. Thanks for the inspiration first and then the reminder. :-)

  7. Love all the baskets. I do the same thing with the pictures. We even do our seasonal decorating from photos. I do change things but at least it gives you a starting point!
