Enjoy my winter wonderland photos from the January 6-7, 2017 blizzard. We received approximately 7-8 inches.
My friend, Hilda Collins, lead our Farm Girls and Feed Sacks group in creating a Christmas craft project in November. I put mine on the tree and think it is really cute! It was simple and kids could make it for teachers or grandparents.
Supplies needed: small jar, glue, decoration with adhesive backing (optional), sponge paint brush, ribbon, salt, disposable bowl and tealight candle.
Directions: Put decoration with adhesive backing on jar (optional), use sponge brush to add glue, put salt in disposable bowl and roll jar in salt. Set aside to dry. Add ribbon on outside and tealight candle inside.
This little basket was fun to weave. I am a blue person so this one makes me smile. I love covered bridges and purchased this painted base and blue leather handles at the Texas Basket Weaver’s Convention in Austin, Texas. Special thanks to friends in my basket weaving guild (Tightly Woven Basketry Guild of the NRV) for sharing smoked colored reed 🙂 This is my first basket to use this color and I love it!
When visiting Mabry Mill in the Meadows of Dan area, we always have to stop at Poor Farmer’s Market. They always carry “a taste from the past” including a huge selection of awesome produce, a large variety of dried beans, ground products from the mill, more books than you can imagine by local authors, mountains gifts, crafts, and much more.
Aren’t these October beans a pretty sight?
After being hand-shelled, these October beans sure make a fine addition to an ole timey, all vegetable dinner following a trip to Poor Farmer’s Market.
Y’all come back now, ya’ hear?
Thank you, Felicia Shelor, for such an awesome place to shop for “a taste from the past”.
