velvet, ,velvet, everywhere

I have collected velvet fabric from all over. It's so fun to mix them with different trims, laces and buttons. Now I just need to figure out which one I want to keep.

These are available in my Etsy store...

green green tomatos green

Sooooo if you had the early snowstorm that killed all your tomato plants, Here's an easy recipe for Green tomato salsa.

Chop all the tomatos, onions, green peppers, garlic and your favorite chiles ( keep seeds if you want it hotter) . Put it all into a big sauce pan. Boil it down for about an hour. More if you like it less chunky. Put in salt, your favorite vinegar ( I like rice wine), a tiny bit of sugar . Stir it for a while, taste it add what ever it needs more of. Then seal.

We made about 30 something jars. My kids have already been through 2 jars!!

How cool is it that I move to Hyrum and my next door neighbor is from Southern Cal too??

I learned so many things about myself and how I interact with my world. I came home renewed , energized and excited to just be me. Thanks to all the wonderful people I shared this amazing experience with. We shall cross paths again.

Amara our littlest cousin came to visit. She is so petite and cute! So since I had gotten some new skirts done, we had ourselves a little photo shoot.... She wasn't even scared of Thor ( our very gentile dog). I like this last one of Piper, that is one of her favorite places to sit and dream.... We all need places like that.
