Handmade Baby Toys

All these toys are handmade with cotton fabric and fiberfill. No hard plastic parts filled with harsh chemicals like most baby toys you buy in the store these days. All are family favorite patterns that have been in use since 1972.


I was lucky enough to be in two treasuries this week. The Mint Chocolate got on the front page! yay:) Both times it was my handmade baby toys that made it in. I am telling you these all natural baby toys are great. If you haven't checked them out please do! just click on the title of this post

I am an addict

I think I have found my new addiction! It Etsy treasuries and here is my latest and greatest!


A small world on my front porch

I have written about nature watching in my yard before, but this small world of snails living under the 1st step on my front porch was different. I hadn't been watching it. I didn't even know it was there. I had walked over it day after day and didn't even realize these sweet slimy creatures had made a home there.


Aren't they so sweet. You can see the different stages they are growing in. Some have hard shell and some have soft small swirls of what will be there shells. They are tiny tiny things smaller than a pea living their simple peaceful life under my porch step.


I wonder what else is hiding in my yard that the kids and I haven't yet discovered.
Isn't nature amazing!


The funny thing is I did a snail treasury a few days ago and it must have been because they were near;)~

Garden Fresh Rice with Asiago cheese

I picked just a few things from the garden and decided to make a very yummy rice out of it. I turned some boring plain brown rice into something my children and husband actually ate!

It was Simple really.... While boiling the water for the rice I added the rosemary. When the rice was ready to be added I took the rosemary out. Then I added some brown rice with the package directions. When the rice was done I added 1/2 cup of asiago cheese, a hand full of cherry tomatoes cut in half, a small shallot diced, some chopped parsley and chives, salt and pepper, and then it was done!

It was a yummy side dish to go along with our BBQ Chicken, Green beans, and Pineapple.

Yellow Springs ~A trip back in time~


Today we took a family day trip to a really neat place. A place you can say is stuck in time. An easier laid back time. When things were about art, culture, great food, and community. It is full of hippies and tie dye and the essence of sandalwood incense. It's a family friendly place and my kids had a blast!

Riddles BBQ had some killer sausage and pulled pork sandwiches!!!Photobucket

beautiful handmade pottery, artwork, clothing, jewlery, etc.Photobucket



I came across a music store called Dingleberry's. It was filled with vinyl and cd's. I came across a Curtis Mayfield record and had to have it. It now has a home on top of my piano in the dinning room. If you haven't heard Curtis Mayfield or listened to funk music you should! It makes me happy:)

Garden veggies and herbs

This gardening thing is so much fun and if you haven't planted something you should give it a try.

My garden is in bloom and everything took except for the cilantro. This is my 1st year for having a garden. It may be small, but it's just enough for me to learn the ropes of keeping things green! I have no luck with indoor plants, but the outdoor ones are growing and thriving. I am so excited to see that the sugar sun tomatoes are ripe and ready for picking. This tiny plant has over grown it's place and is giving me more tomatoes than I can eat. If it weren't for my mother coming over and letting me now that they weren't going to turn red, than I would have been waiting a few weeks before I figured it out. lol They aren't the red kind she said....I did say that I was new to this right? Oh well now I know and I am ready to try them out. When I make a yummy dish I will be happy to take pics and share. I have been using the basil, oregano, dill, parsley, rosemary, and chives already. They make all my dishes fresh and yummy!!! The jalapeƱos, shalots, and tomatoes are my next to try.
