“Floral Flavor”

I was inspired by an article in Romantic Homes to make this for the elementary class at my sons school for a Mother’s Day Gift. Rose Infused sugar. It was so easy and the kids loved getting there hands in it. They each got an air tight container, a large scoop of dried rose buds and a box of sugar. I had them sign a gift tag and I put a special Mother’s Day note along with a rose hip tea bag tied with some vintage seam binding. The kids had to pull the petals off the rose buds and then crush the petals. The next step was to add the sugar and wait one day for it to infuse. If there not tea drinkers it will look pretty sitting in the kitchen.

Happy Mother’s Day

Urban Barn is getting ready to have there next “Street Faire”  November 17th & 18th. I was starting to dig thru my find’s for fall color’s of topaz glass and turkey figureine’s when an Urban Barn-ette said “November’s street faire is the big Christmas holiday event”. I stood there in a stuper… “No shit!” I said,  that makes sense. So now the fun begin’s! I can’t wait to display two holiday’s in one.

I will also have the new paper line from Cake Vintage Table & Home.
