gift giving

i really love to wrap and give is on my top list of things that really make me happy(this list a really big:). my usual approach to gift wrapping is a simple grosgrain ribbon tied in a single loop bow with long tails. i love the classic, crisp look with a little touch of charm. bows are good like that!

a new tote

vintage ribbon trim from my mother

i saw a similar tote at the orchard we visited in the fall. it was love at first sight and i knew that i would need to make one...i will make more...the ruffles, the flower, the flowy fluff.
the next one is going to be made using some of my little cheek's dresses that she has outgrown.

findings on love

lately i have been thinking that i might not be expressing love to me children as often as i should. of course they are hugged, snuggled, affirmed, and doted on but i go through each day shuffling them to this place and that and i often find that we are just surviving. i have to make loving my children intentional. loving them in such a way that they know and feel loved. of course all children respond to love and require love in different forms, but my goal for the next few weeks is to share with them some of the unique attributes that make them such lovely creatures. here are their love notes from today. if you want to read more on this topic THIS is a wonderful book. i would highly recommend it.

penzey's...a delicious experience

spent the weekend with my stl besties...thought you might want to "meet" them...they are some of my most favorite people in the whole world.
while i was there we went to penzey's. it is a spice store that i wrote about HERE
let me tell was perfection. it was in a old building in a quaint part of a st. louis suburb. hardwood floors, wood crates, organization, and the smell...oh my! before we went i had prepared mr. dc for the trip. he knew that i had cleaned out the spice cabinet before we left. here is what i purchased while we were there.
just some of the bottom rack in the above picture
i bought these spices in bags, (you will see a picture below) because if you purchased in the bag you got a larger quantity for a cheaper price. i knew i had jars at home that would hold the spices. the store had all kinds of mixed spices, dressing mixes, and rubs.
i reused some of my existing bottles and removed the label from the bag that it came in so i could have the information for the spice
that sandwich sprinkle is straight from above...
these bags show how the spices came packaged
i would love to eventually have the entire spice cabinet be a penzey's spice cabinet
in the store they had all kinds of recipe cards for the taking, highlighting certain spices or blends to use in the recipe.
penzey's also has a catalog that has so many amazing recipes. i highly recommend subscribing HERE. and if you need spices let me tell you, penzey's is the place to buy. i found the company to have extremely reasonable prices and the quality is superior! i would buy the spices in the bag if you are going to have it shipped. and if you live near a penzeys, CHECK HERE, jump in your car and go NOW! what is holding you back. it will make you hApPy:)
one more little tidbit...a dash of penzey's almond extract in your coffee is deliciously decadent...thanks for the tip nanc:)
