Holly Homemade

I looked at myself next to the woman beside me at church. She had her designer purse, it was beautiful. I had my handmade tote. She had a designer coat, it was lovely. I had my handmade scarf. So yeah, sometimes I feel a little holly homemade...but the truth is that I love making things, and as I get better at it, my look will improve.  Another truth: I am a funky hippie at heart <3

Our local library had a really great knitting book. The images were lovely, I long to be good enough to recreate such lovely pieces....maybe someday.  Now it was just good to have some coffee and look at a book of beautiful things.

Here are a few of my favs...

This bag is made with heavy kitchen twine that you knit with...interesting!

Whoopie Pie & raw milk from a local farm :)

Inspired by my lovely Corynne I am on a mission to make my own tortillas. I am working on improving them with each batch I try. Today we tried a new recipe and thought they came out good. It was weird that the recipe called for milk...hmmm.  Happy Tortilla making, lovelies.

Pretty, pretty please.

I've talked Mr. Montgomery into getting these...

Still trying to get him on board with the family cow

And saving my pennies for one of these...

So that I can turn wheatberries into my own fabulous bread.

Why do such things make me so happy? I am so strange.

The sky

Sometimes the sky looks pretty and it reminds me of heaven.

You make known to me the path of life;

in your presence there is fullness of joy;

at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

—Psalm 16:11

my new teapot

It grows flowers in it. I like it. This pot was green tea with acai.  It was delicous.  I think I was holding the camera a little crooked...oh well.
