Lemon curd..Elevates so many things~
Painting a home..
and ours..a while back..
I made Jane's small batch vanilla lemon curd again..I made two:)
Beautiful Meyer Lemons sitting still..had to..
You can find Jane's recipe here..I have shared it before.
A delightful thing happened..at Debbie's Blog..Mountain Breaths..I won a beautiful cookbook..Kindness and Salt.
I loved how she described the book..the authors..it is wonderful that the book is a little bit French Bistro too.
Kindness and Salt..what's not to love? 2 of my fave things;)
Saturday night we had Noah ,Oli and Lucas..and later in the evening Lucas and Oli came back to our home for a sleepover.
I aim to please♥
That stack of beautiful pancakes won me brownie points..(I always hope that lol..) As I have said and confessed to before.. I bake for love;)
I've been painting..little journal pages and some homes..I seem to enjoy doing homes..
I always wish I could find MYSTYLE..when I paint a home..and I am ok w/ the outcome..I think..this is my style.
Not straight nor perfect..but I feel something when it's done..like I don't want to tear it up:)
I just get feelings for certain things..like our Littles..some homes..etc..
Those are the things I like best to paint.
I made a wonderful meal this week..we eat a lot of fish..chicken..veggies,salads..
Once in a while I want a plate of carbs..more often than not...:)
I will make this and make it again..w/ a few twists..We are only 2.. so just 2 spicy Italian sausages..and of course reduced all else..
I don't usually have heavy cream..used 10%and I jujjed up my ricotta w/ my basil oil and garlic and parm cheese.
For some reason I cannot remember if I shared my ParisBreakfast wall..in any event there are more now so worth another peek.
A neverending source of inspiration for me.
I save the envelopes and they are treats in themselves..the rubber stamping..stamps..postmarks..little inserts of this and that from Paris..
Just very very special.
Those are the other things I don't throw away..the small paintings I have done through her tutorials..
I am content w/ those:)
My maps used to be above my art desk area but there is a big horizontal window there..width wise..not height wise..and I ran out of room so now they are all on the opposite wall..8 are in a frame..Ideally I would love 20 gold frames:) Chaching.
But for now..this just makes me feel even better to be down there:)
I love it.
You can find Carol's maps here:)
I saw this recently..it's not my photo but I liked it ..
Listen to Van Gogh's words..
"If you hear a voice within you saying:"You cannot paint"..then by all means paint..and that voice will be silenced~"
Don't you love it?It opens a door for everyone.
Meanwhile..in another era..;)More sunshine;)You can't see the roof now....nor all around for it's enwrapped in snow..
To every thing there is a season:)
And before we know it..Spring will be at our doorstep,clamoring for attention everywhere~
This is a time of rest.
