We are off to the county fair tonight. It is a mandatory summer activity. There will be no time for a real post, but here is a little list of great finds this week.
My package arrived from Camie at Red Gate Gardens today and it included not only coffee and a wonderful note, but two vintage books (post to come tomorrow with pics). Someday, I hope to be there in Montana for a visit, but am afraid I might never leave!
My dear, dear friend Lizzie, made me extremely happy tonight with nine, jaw dropping images of James McAvoy. I’m not sure if you all realize what a huge thing I have for Mr. McAvoy. I turn into a jelly legged puddle of thirteen year old mush when I watch his movies, especially Becoming Jane. Sex scenes….who needs them when you can country dance with this look in your eyes, but then came Atonement.
Speaking of which Emmy and I learned a bit of English country dancing last year at the Hearth and Home festival which was quite fun, so much fun that we didn’t want to stop, pout.
I have been lurking a bit too much lately over at Smitten Kitchen with at least four new recipes to try every time I visit.
I found a yummy new wine, Root:1 from Chile. I will admit publicly that I bought it for the gorgeous bottle, but it was equally gorgeous in taste. I had the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Sauvignon Blanc.
I bought these almost too cute recipe cards for my sister for her birthday. I’ve been admiring them on Etsy for awhile, here.
And finally, I have printed out the homemade yogurt recipe from Tasty Kitchen over at the Pioneer Woman. It seems a bit scary, and we’re buying it relatively inexpensively over at the farm right now, but the girls really love yogurt, so I might have to give it a try. Anyone successfully bred yogurt in the past?
