sun bathers



The unseasonably warm temperatures had all the pets out sunning themselves on the deck this past weekend - I never planned on all of their pajamas to be matching, but I love that they do!

diagnosis: birdnesting



I took my sewing machine for repair yesterday and I learned the technical name for the problem I am having with the unit - who knew!

fire cider


FIRE CIDER is a tincture and tonic, a fermented concoction of goodness that has many health benefits - I made a jar for myself this week:


fresh horseradish root from the garden - dug it up from under the snow!


into the blender with a bunch of other STRONG ingredients


blend and enjoy 1 TABLESPOON per day!  Many recipes call for simply mixing the raw ingredients and not blending them, but I actually enjoy eating the stuff.  Kiss me!


this was the recipe I used, though there are many variations out there

January thrift haul



To add to my collection of vintage health food cookbooks, two excellent finds: The Vegetarian Epicure, Book Two from 1978 (here was my post when I found book one) and another raw food "cook" book from 1980 - love these! $1 each


A true 1940s shabby chic single bed spread in a beautiful floral/berry pattern - it has a hand written history sewn on the inside naming all of the family members who owned it over the years $5


A real 80s dress in tartan polyester - ruffled side button in effect $3.00
