This and That


Happy first day of the week!!  The sun rose today at 8:01. I've been watching and waiting for it to rise before 8 but it seems the days get longer at the other end. I'll keep watching though.

I found this cute wooden sign at the Dollar store;  don't know exactly where I'm going to hang it but for $1.25 I was not going to pass it up.


 With the Christmas decorations put away I needed to set something out on this table. I decided pink would look nice and cheery.




Nice and cheery is what these colourful peppers are!  They will become hot pepper jelly.  I have hot peppers that I froze last summer .




Lacking anything to do I got out my pot holder collection and chose a couple to be used this year. I will throw away the grungy ones with the slightly burnt edges. ( Don't ask!).


Now I'm off to the kitchen to make Tomato/lentil soup for supper.
Perfect for a winter's evening.

Take care, dear friends,

    1. Oh Debi, any pot holder I sewed would look awful. It's just not a talent I have.

  3. I've never seen such a pretty collection of Pot holders. Do you make them? I made a pot holder from a little piece of that Christmas Piggy fabric. It turned out cut so I gave it to a friend. Your pink decorated table is so pretty.

    1. Since I can't sew I look for pretty things others have made and buy them at garage sales or thrift stores. I enjoy the fun of looking for bargains!!

  8. I especially like the crocheted potholders with the rose in the middle! Love the pink arrangement on the table and the bird pictures behind it. I made a big pot of bean soup yesterday, then accidentally left them simmering when I left to go babysit. A couple of hours later I ran home, not sure if I'd turned them off or not. I was relieved that the apartment wasn't filled with smoke! But they had become more like refried beans. But very dried out, so I threw them out. Sheesh. I'll try again later. :) Enjoy your homey pursuits!

  9. Pretty potholders! I made a 15 Bean Soup. It was okay but not a big hit for either of us. Your pink is lovely:)

  11. Tomato/lentil soup? Do you share recipes? Love your new sign. Lovely collection of pot holders! Think I need a couple new ones. Nancy

    1. I would gladly share my recipe if I had one. I'm afraid I never use a recipe when making soup. I did start with a 28oz can of tomatoes and just added a diced potato, carrots, an onion, red lentils and some bouillon powder that I get in bulk ( I make very sure to get the no MSG).

      New pot holders will be a snap for you to make because you sew and probably have lots of remnants you can use!
