Well Hello There!

Come on in!

I am so glad that you stopped by!

Isn't it a beautiful spring day? Too bad I still have the winter wreath up! The boy and bitty one are having a picnic.

But back to the wreath. Feel like doing some crafting?


The lovely Yvonne did a gorgeous wreath for spring and was even kind enough to make a tutorial about it. How about it?

Great! Let's get some stuff together.

Yeah, I am only using one wreath. I know she used two. I am going to change up mine a bit. She says to hot glue the flowers on the front.

Wow! Only hot glued myself to it 7 times! That may be a new low for me. Now she glued more to the back. I think I want something greeny though.

So far so good!

Oh yeah, remember to take off the tags!

It's okay. Not as pretty as Yvonne's though. It seems to need something.

Maybe some red ribbon?

Some black and white check might be nice too.

I think that looks better.

All that work made me hungry!

You two?

Let me whip you something up!

How about a Roast beef and cheese hoagie with some leftover chantarelles? I've had the roast slow cooking in the oven at 275 for the last 4 hours. Not even worth making a recipe card for.

Maybe a little homemade Mushroom and Leek soup?

And for something sweet. A little something from someone just as sweet! Yvonne from Stone Gable.

Palmiers! I think I need to roll mine a little tighter next time. I was trying to roll and keep a 3 year old out of the cinnamon sugar at the same time!

I am so glad that you stopped by! You really got me motivated!

Please feel free to stop by any time!

Dear Maggie,
You never fail to amaze me.
A wreath for the door, delicious soup and sandwich and Palmiers. You are just to good for me. I can't compete with you !!
Whenever I use my glue gun, I burn my fingers so many times !!
I love the photo of your two having their picnic.
Have a lovely weekend, Maggie. I think that you deserve a rest today. XXXX

HI Maggie, I don't remember where you are at, but there are 2 csa's one out of calendonia that delivers all over IL called angelic organics and another out of naperville called the green earth institute.

I was relishing your gorgeous wreath when the food arrived and made me very hungry for a snack. Hmmm, Hubby just made a chocolate, strawberry-banana Smoothie...I think I'll keep him. Yum

Cindy said...

Now I'm liking that too....if I go to the backdoor will you feed me?
