As Time Goes By~
How did below happen? Remember when he was born and I put him in a Water Lettuce ?Like Ann Geddes?He's 12.. came over on Sunday..and watched Football w/ grandad..Miss crafting w/ him lol..now he organizes our Mini Ipads and phones;)Let me tell you that twelve is as sweet as sweet can be.This boy♥
The days of Beatrix are long gone w/ them~
I had the perfect excuse to make a pie..Lucas was popping by..
I used Karin's pie dough recipe..you can find it in her recipes here..Just a little note..her recipe says 5 tbsps of water or 80 ml..I use Jacques chem burettes lol..and when I put 5 tbsps it's around 50 ml ..I think 80 ml is too much..in the long run you will know.Start w/ 50..
this dough holds shapes etc..and is still flaky.
I found her on Instagram..which is sooo lovely! I used this Nordic Ware cutter..
The weather has waffled between frightfully cold w/ artic air..and mellower..on a mellower day I took a walk to one of my fave spots..well..let me rephrase that..I drove to my fave spot ..then got out of the car and walked.. even on mellower days..fingers tend to freeze taking pics..mellower meant above 0 F:) I hink it was 22F.
We have an area up shore road that looks like an ice fishing village..but where I went..this little one sat alone..my dad was an avid ice fisherman....:) The fish as I remember were delish.I remember going once.. sooo cccold..I think it was in QC city though..at my uncle Rolland's with my dad.
As I took my walk..one man walked 2 of his dogs against the stark landscape and a couple.. later on.. we were hardly any out.. the man walked further onto the ice to take photos and I snapped the Lady In Red~ ♥
I've been thinking of Valentine's Day because it's around my daughter's Birthday.. and Easter..
I purchased this video set months ago second hand and have just gotten around to watching..so dear and old fashioned..
Days gone by.
I just keep very busy in this weather..I have fabric to recover the wicker settee cushions..I have paintings to do..cakes to bake..cookies to frost..books to read..tea cosies to stitch..
I organize in January..lol..I am so weird..I think.. well..if I died tomorrow.. they would think I was organized at least..;)
Way too much "stuff" ..but organized.;)
However I know none of these things went through my mind or mattered as I went through my mom's personal belongings..all I remember is the fresh clean scent of everything..her slips..her bras..nylons..girdles w/ hook type things to attach your nylons..she did not need a girdle..at all..
..I remember wearing some of her clothes for months..after..maybe years..finding my last birthday card..the one I would have gotten in February..signed.
Looking at her Revlon Red lipstick..cotton batten wool in a roll covered in indigo colored paper.I sucked my thumb w/ that till I was 10.
A new cream she had bought..a skin cream..I just remember a gold jar..she wasn't one to have drawers full of cosmetics.
A natural .
Her Jergen's cream that smelled like almond.
L'Air Du temps by Nina Ricci..
Muguet Des Bois.
Her crystal and silver on her toiletry table..
I LOVED that table..there was a stool..a rectangle..I have it.. a big round mirror.. a middle thin long drawer under the top..and 3 drawers on each side.
I LOVED sitting there.Oh I can feel the feeling now♥
Truly a Mrs Maisel toiletry table.♥
