Our many rose bushes have been blooming lately. We bought our house about a year and a half ago and I have no idea what any of the rose bushes are called. What I can tell you is that they are incredibly vibrant in color and so very full. Here are a couple of them from around the yard.
On the right side of our backyard the fig tree has started to show show some blooms. Looks like there will be a bumper crop.....I hope. Uforutnately we haven't been able to ever harvest enough to make some preseves. We'll eat them raw or in a salad and that's about it.
I also prettified the counter top in the laundry. I needed a place to place the lint that we clean out from the dryer; a place for my tide pen; and all the "loot" I find in pockets and on the floor. You wouldn't believe the small fortune I have been able to gather in just the laundry room alone. I made the woolen bag out of canvas that I had in my fabric stash and then used some stamps to put the saying on. The silver cake holder is a yard sale find I found a couple of years ago. The little terra cotta dish was a gift from many years ago and the mini mason jar had some kind of preserves in it at one time. So, everything was all stuff I had already to prettify this little spot. I also placed my Country Living Simple Wisdom book here too. Great ideas on homekeeping, etc. in this little book.
On the sewing front I am still busy at the machine. Life, laundry and family come first and sewing takes a backseat. So, it is slow going.
A big thank you to everyone that commented and gave me suggestions and links about gluten free stuff. You all are the best.
