Hello dear Reader. Hard to believe that I was dining with my folks, this time last week. I stayed with them after flying in from Atlanta. So what's been life like after Folkschool? Take a peek and see:
Clearly the folks of Brasstown have a good sense of humor! Kirsten and I stopped at Clay's corner for 'Possum drop t-shirts, on our way to the airport. Yes, they drop, slowly and safely in a crate, an Opossum on New Year's eve. Peta isn't fond of this Time's Square alternative.
Did you want a closer look, of course you did:
Inside we chatted with Clay and some of his buddies. Somehow, the fellas guessed that we were not locals.
There was a gallery across the street as well. Super nice owner and place.
Hope to see you soon again, JCC Folk School.
The week was a blur, catching up on everything that went on while I was away. In fact, I was only able to bake on Wednesday! Kirsten gave me a great recipe for an almond flour cake, so good.
I was trying to represent spring, since the weather was wintery. It helped to be at work this week and share my experiences with the folks at the library. Btw, the horse shoe is a gift from Kathy. She generously let Doreen and I have our pick of her MIL's pin collection. Today I wore this beauty:
After I caught up on grocery shopping, vacuuming and laundry, I had time today to decorate for Easter. We are hosting and I still had a Valentine themed mantle. I somehow forgot how much Easter decor I have. It was fun changing things around. I was actually ironing some of the vintage linens I've thrifted over the years. It'd be a shame not to enjoy all the pretty stuff I've collected.
Ready to lend a paw, knock something over or shed. Just pay him in kibble. Below he is trouble shooting my scanner.
My circulation partner at the library has chickens. They lay such pretty eggs.
See the two papier-mâché heads above? I bought them at a local consignment shop yesterday, before seeing how much Easter decor I have in the basement. Good thing they were only $2 a piece.
Trying for a creamy themed mantel.
10 rabbits just in and on this shelf. I have a weakness for white rabbits. On instagram, I was doing a
hashtag for i love white bunnies, and i love white boys, followed close behind, i love white bitches came up. Oh my.
Sophia brought these candle holders for me from Denmark this summer. I was so happy that they fit on these Ikea candlesticks.
I did cut two small pieces this week. One for a get well/heal fast card. The other is a commission for Kirsten. She is gifting it to a classmate who had a turkey vulture problem.
It took hanging a dead one from a tree to get the 79 vultures to leave her home. UGH! I'll leave you with the Almond flour cake recipe. I had to bake it longer than TJ said to, btw. Enjoy.
