Yes, yes, I KNOW it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. But at November’s Sage Farm show, there were a few corners that looked a lot like Christmas.
I snapped some photos of red & green. Take a look!
Not that we’re complaining!
Here’s one I just dug out of a thrift-shop pile of otherwise boring linens. Measuring a tidy little 43″ by 45″, it’s made of a tightly woven cotton percale with a wonderful all-over plaid & fruity pattern.
It’s my lucky day!
I don’t think there’s much Irish in either BluesRay or me, but we’re celebrating St Patrick’s Day anyway.
The table has a vintage white cotton damask cloth to start, topped with a wonderful Startex print of lucky charms.
The tag says it’s a kitchen towel.
Since yesterday was The Feast of Epiphany—aka Three Kings Day—I finally baked some Three Kings Cake today.
I’m only a day late!
Why it’s called “cake” is a mystery. It’s not cake. It’s a barely-sweet yeast bread studded with bits of yummy dried fruit, baked in the shape of a king’s crown and topped with cherry “jewels.” Yep, there’s more!
It’s been snowing since this morning.
So far we have fifteen inches.
It’ll snow all night.
Twice already we’ve shovelled the driveway, the front steps, and the back deck. We’ll do it again before bed. We’ll do it again in the morning.
I can hear the snowplows scraping down the street every half hour. I love being inside my snug house and hearing that sound. They’ll be plowing straight through tomorrow afternoon. Twenty-eight hours of shoving snow around! God bless the plow guys. Yep, there’s more!
