Sweet (heart) Treats for you!!

These little redwork pinkeeps are now in my etsy shop
sold seperately, but shown grouped together....
~ AND ~

...a little snippet available on ebay ~
(love that frame!!)
more paper snippets to come, and a little more redwork too!
Another cold day...
I have all three woodstoves going
(2 in the farmhouse, 1 in the shop)
Cosy & comfy,
hauling the wood in,
sweeping the hearths
and wiping down soot is not necessarily good fun...
it does, on the other hand, help to know that our heat is free
(unless you add up the time spent chopping, gathering & piling)
I used to complain alot more about the whole woodstove thing
when we first moved to the farm, but was told by
an elder that wood warms you twice...
once when you chop it,
twice when you burn it.
'nuff said.
Hope you're all enjoying some handwork, some good homecooking & some heat....
Here's a recipe for
Corn & Sausage Chowder
for you, to help ward off the chilly weather:
1 package frozen corn
1 package sweet italian sausage
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cups chopped carrots
2 cups chopped potatoes
1 cup chopped tomatoes
2 tbls. italian seasoning
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
place all ingredients into a soup pot EXCEPT heavy cream ~
cook all day
(at least 4 hours...i cook on my woodstove)
just before serving, add in heavy cream & stir...
serve with crusty bread and a nice fresh salad with orange slices & grapes in it!
let me know how you like it???
Blessed be!

Beautiful redwork pieces and as always wonderful paper clipping. The frame is just perfect.

Your new header is so pretty as are your pinkeeps. I am so enjoying some redwork right now too. It's such a lovely old art.

Three woodstoves ... you don't have a chance to get cold do you? Just keeping our one keeps me busy on these cold, cold days.
