menu plan monday ~ september 18, 2017

I spent last week finishing a custom order for a Putz church. It is done, except for a sign on the front of the base, identifying the church. I make signs on printable glitter paper, and am waiting on that to be delivered. It feels good to have this project so close to completion. I […]

Today I have a lot of things on my to-do list, but I have two things I really want to get done. One is the custom order Putz church I am working on. Woody the Gnome thinks the steeple is great. It reminds him of his hat. The other project is to begin embellishing the […]

September is here before I am ready to give up summer. But this month does have its own beauty. Our weather is usually the best in September and October. Lovely cool days with blue skies. Sunny but not hot. Saturday I enjoyed taking some pictures of the butterflies on the garlic chives. The blossoms were […]

I spent most of last week cleaning up the craft room. I finally found the counters. Among many other things I located, I also found three Putz houses and a Putz church that had been painted and then forgotten. I put panes in the windows and then found matching bases for the houses. I need […]

Our garden has received much needed rain and the grass is looking greener and the flowers are looking fresher. This past weekend, I used surprise lilies, crepe myrtle, and hosta flowers for the Sunday bouquet. I captured a little video of Clark. He likes to hang out on the banister in the upstairs hall. He […]

Last Saturday, DH and I went to my Dad’s house for a family reunion. I shared a picture of Dad and his siblings in my last post. Another highlight of the afternoon was a drawing for two quilts that had been made by my paternal grandmother and her mother. The first quilt was won by […]

As promised, I made mayonnaise last week. After a false start, success! It’s not hard to do, but there are rules to follow. If you want to give it a try, I’d suggest you google for some hits and tips before beginning. Understanding the process helps! I used the mayonnaise to make chicken salad, which […]

The past week seemed to drag. Because the Fourth was on a Tuesday this year, it threw off my weekly clock! I had a hard time figuring out which day it was because the Tuesday felt like a weekend. This week should be better. Not as much planned. This morning, while I was making the […]

Last week went by quickly. I’ve been working on Putz house bases. When the houses are done, the picture will be on the bottom of the base. A little surprise when the house is turned over. I think I will put a barn on the one with the cowboy and the horse. I especially like […]
