~ Orts and Little Stitches ~

Good morning! It's Monday, another week begins, and it's also.. time to share my little ort jar for TU SAL. My little jar is beginning to bloom with a bit of color. For the longest time my only orts were black and a few pieces of orange from my Halloween stitch, but I ran out of the black I was using. I had to order it and while I was waiting for it I started stitching.....
Blessed Are The Meek by LHN, I just love this little stitch. I've decided to set my Halloween stitching aside for now and work on this piece and several little holiday stitches.

I just finished this little freebie from the Sampler Girl. I really like the bright color in the sweet little piece and the orts really livened up my jar. This was a fun stitch and worked up quickly.
Have a good week...hugs, Linda

~ November Peddler's Fair ~

This past weekend the weather was beautiful...perfect for the Peddler's Fair. I was hoping to find a piece or two to add to my Thanksgiving things and I'm always looking for..... Moonstone, when I spotted this piece. It's so pretty, I fell in love with it. At first I thought it was Moonstone but it is French Opalescent by Fenton, very similar to Moonstone and I think they mix well together. I filled it with Fall pieces and it is on our dinning room table.

I did find this pretty blue plate and sweet, sweet.......

little turkey. Gobble, Gobble........that's turkey talk for have a happy day...hugs, Linda

~A Bowl Of Fall and Cookies~

I think Fall has finally arrived. The evenings are cool and crisp and the days are bright and sunny. On Monday I had a dentist appointed ( my check up was great). In front of his office there is a beautiful old tree. These mini cones are from it...they are so delicate. I have no idea what kind of tree these are you? Anyway, I gathered a hand full of cones and some leaves too, and this is my little bowl of Fall...courtesy of Mother Nature. As soon as the weather turns fallish I think of comfort foods and baking. I love to bake and today I made these simple but delish cookies......

I know I've shared this recipe...but just in case you haven't seen it, here it is again...

Just three ingredients....

Mix by hand.....and then place on a cookie sheet ( I like to use parchment paper on my cookie sheets)...I use a generous teaspoon full, but you can make them just about any size. Gently flatten with a fork tine dipped in sugar.

Bake and Enjoy. This is BJ's recipe at Sweet Nothings and I love it. Each time I make these I say thank you to her. hugs, Linda
