Garage Sale Find

I went to a couple of garage sales this morning and found this nice basket. I love baskets, you can always fill up a basket!

Mock Mushrooms

Doug went mushroom hunting again and once again, only found 5, but we had a friend take pity on us and gave us a few that he found!

pcpics 2905

Some people said they are afraid to eat these mushrooms for various reasons. Well here is a recipe that my Mom came across that I thought would be interesting to try. I would like to see if they really tasted like the real thing. Maybe you have seen this recipe, I never have so I thought I would share it with you.

MOCK MUSHROOMS


1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can mushroom bits and pieces (drained)
1 egg, beaten
Cracker crumbs
Mix together adding enough cracker crumbs to make a mixture like a salmon patty mixture. Form in small patties. Fry in butter until brown. Tastes like fried mushrooms.

If someone tries this, be sure to let me know what you thought. I’ll try it eventually but right now I have the real thing!

15 Mushrooms and A Primitive Place

Hope everyone enjoyed their Easter! I have one complaint, not enough sun! The sun just won’t stick around which makes for dreary depressing days!

Rusty went mushroom hunting the other day and found about 10 and Doug made fun of him because that’s all he found so Doug decided he was going to go and get some more, so he went yesterday and found 5. Who’s laughing now?!

Just received my summer issue of A Primitive Place Magazine today! I had to set it aside when I got home from work because I had some errands I had to run. I finally made it home so now I’m gonna sit down and enjoy some good reading and some good eye candy I’m sure!

Finished Maggie Kit

First of all thank you to those that commented on my previous post. I do think it has to do with blogger itself, it’s so annoying though because I miss those updated post that say they are there but they aren’t! :-(

Here is my finished Maggie kit. The first photo is taken in a room with more light and the second photo with not so much light. It really changes the looks of it. I had a hard time finding a 12 X 12 inch frame. I found one at Hobby Lobby but it was too modern looking so I asked if they had any more and she directed me over to the scrapbooking area where I found this frame. It was natural wood and so I had to paint it which is fine and I like the looks of it, it’s just that there is no glass in it.

 Now I have to clean my dining room table off again. There is just no end! I'm always working on something that lands on the table. I try so hard to be organized but it just never works out that way.

Just Wondering?

chimpanzee_thinking_poster

Ok fellow bloggers I have a question maybe someone can help me with. When I go to my dashboard and it lists the blogs I follow a long with a thumbnail size picture, I usually can click on it and it takes me to that blog. Well, once in a while a blog has updated and they have a new thumbnail size picture but when I click on it a box comes up that says,”page not found, the page you were looking for does not exist.”    How does it not exist if that blogger updated and a new picture shows but yet you can’t click on it and go there?  Hope this is making sense. Maybe someone will understand what I am trying to say. Thanks! :-)

Saturday I went to the thrift shop and I found this print. It is called “Grace” I have always loved it so I picked it up along with some clay pots.

I have been working on some graduation things. I simply can not believe it will soon be here. My last little baby is going to be graduating, where oh where did the time go? I try not to dwell on it too much cause it makes my eyes start watering if you know what I mean. :-(

Here’s a picture of one of my favorite little bunnies. I got him at the Log Cabin.

Revisiting

Doug, along with the other chorus members left this evening to go on the Tennessee trip. They get to tour the Country Music Hall of Fame and go to Dollywood just to name a few things. They ought to have a good time.

I have in my possession another Maggie project. I have all the pieces cut out waiting on me to start stitching.

Here are some photos I’m just revisiting from the past. I was looking through some albums and picked a few I liked.

Coffee anyone?

I decided some coffee sounded pretty good so I made some fresh ground coffee beans. Here is my favorite coffee. I get it at Sams Club. You know how some coffee has that bitter taste to it? Well this doesn’t. I was at my brother and sister in-laws for breakfast one morning and they got me started on it.

Red Door Primitives

Went to my friend Paula’s spring open house today and found some goodies!

This little doll is from Pennsylvania. I just love her and her little basket.

pcpics 2826

Paula made this adorable doll.

pcpics 2828

As always Paula had a lot of awesome things to look at. She is so talented, I don’t know where she finds the time to make so many different things! Her husband also makes a lot of primitive type furniture, neat stuff!

Thanks Paula! Love my dolls!

March went by so fast, I don’t even remember it happening. Wonder if April will be the same way? Doug, my last one will be graduating in May. I will no longer have a child in high school. Where did the time go? This also means I am getting older myself, scary!! I better quit thinking! ;-)

Footloose and Sneak Peak

pcpics 2812

Have to do a little bragging. My son Doug was in the musical Footloose, he played the part of Willard. I do have to say he did an exceptional job!! He’s the dude in the cowboy hat. Of course everyone did a great job. I’m going back tonight!

I just about have my little penny rug done. Here is a sneak peak.

pcpics 2818

I cannot believe it is April. I don’t even remember March happening!
