Let me show you a few of my thrifty purchases of the week....this heavy urn ( maybe made of plaster??) was a dollar. I couldn't believe my eyes! It has a hole in the bottom but that didn't prevent me from buying it, along with an assortment of pretty doilies that were .25 each.
I love cozy cardigans and wear them a lot since I tend to feel cold. I do like this bright coral coloured one. Almost didn't try it on since it's a size small and I usually wear a medium or even a large. It doesn't pay to not check though because sizes are strange that way.
For years I've lamented that I couldn't get African Violets to rebloom. Oh they had lovely leaves but if they developed buds they were few and far between. Somehow my luck changed and these three are proof of that.
This week in my kitchen.....nectarine jam. We must have gotten a real deal on nectarines last year because I rarely freeze any. In fact I suspect that although the bag was labeled nectarines I'm fairly sure it also held apricots.. In any case the jam is tasty! One bag of fruit made 4 little jars plus the jam dish full.
A couple of over-ripe bananas that I didn't want to throw away led me to make this banana cake. I just happened to have cream cheese icing in the fridge too. YUM.
Thanks for popping by. Why not leave a comment so I know you did.
