Snow Blessings

Hand painted by The Old Cupboard Door: Design by Terry French
Just a month ago it was so hot snow was unthinkable but the temps have been cooling in our area and snow seems to be inching closer to reality. I can't believe I've actually mentioned the "S" word! For those who don't like S N O W please don't panic, it will be a few more weeks before the white stuff actually starts to fly, well in most areas.

I love this design by Terrye French, it is so adorable and was a fun design to paint.  I have painted it on a bread board, which fit it perfectly, I didn't have to resize or tweak any that!

I've added a tag, a snowman on a round tag, a salt dough snowflake and tied it all together with a piece of burlap and homespun.  What a great item for a winter kitchen.

It was a hot, hot summer in Northern VA this year.  Not only was it hot but it was also humid, not a great combination in my opinion.  The humidity must have been great for my veggie garden because it thrived beautifully.  We had plenty of green beans and tomatoes.  We had some cherry tomatoes that were volunteers from last summer.  Next year we need to enlarge our garden and plant more.  We've "put up" green beans and tomato sauce for the winter months, yum!  Next on our agenda is to make a trip to the local orchard for some apples.  We love apple butter and dried apples.  It's been a while since we've made some apple sauce, hopefully we will have time to make this favorite too.

Til next time
