  • It's always a good day when @joythebaker stops by. Thanks for sharing food stories, sipping tea, strolling the property, and playing with our Wild child. Safe travels on your southern road trip, and beyond!!!
  • Was weeding the patio and looked up to find this little gnome picking daffodils.
  • Follow the red brick road? Indeed I did.
  • The best part of @fernworks and @killaspro traveling to Southeast Asia in January? The Thai food cooking kick they've been on since their return. Still thinking about these crazy delicious wings @fernworks made last night (using the recipe from @pokpokpdx). Thanks for having us over, buddies!
  • Back at home but missing this sight, from #selbygardens.
  • Family, gardens, and sea creatures are what characterized our time in Florida. I could stare at these exquisite jellyfish all day.
  • Nothing could be finer than to be back in North Carolina. Missed these mountains something fierce!
  • A late winter trip to Florida was exactly what we three Englishes needed, but we are glad to be headed back home to greet the spring in the magical mountains of western North Carolina.
  • Something wicked this way comes. At the Magic Kingdom. First time here as a parent. At Huxley's request, went on the Haunted Mansion ride first. Let the good times roll!
  • Surfside in Sarasota at the in-law's lovely home, light breeze, good reads, good times. Next, on to my dad's place in Tampa. Florida, you're doing good. Reeeeeeeeal good.
  • Rollin in the deep. Sarasota, you've been grand.
  • The tiny bird whisperer strikes again.

And the Winner of “Making It” Is…

Ashley, over at Life of a Little Woman, lucky number #175, according to my random number generator widget. I’ll be in touch soon for your mailing info.

Thank you so very much to all who participated. I LOVE giving things away! Those of you who know me personally can attest to this. From clothing to housewares, scratch-cooked meals to generous hugs, I love sharing what I’ve got.

    So excited! Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  • Even though I didn't win the book, I did win by finally making my own eyeglass cleaner!

    I had been paying $3.50 for an 8oz bottle of cleaner. I made my own cleaner using a 16oz bottle rubbing alcohol ($1) and 16oz water (free) with a few drops of dish soap (basically free).

    I got 32oz of homemade eyeglass cleaner for $1. I would have paid$14 for that much at the store!!! And, my homemade cleaner seems to work better!

    Thanks to Ashley English for the motivation to finally get this “small measure”-type project done. :)

  • Thanks, Ashley!

    I also just got your Canning & Preserving book.

    I am planting my first vegetable garden this year and I am very much looking forward to using the book to help me can some of my bounty. :)
