“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



“Derniers Jour De Vacances”

Todays forecast was 72° F, Mostly Sunny.

I’m at the last of my vacation days and the forecast for Las Vegas when I arrive home this week will be 105° with a slight chance of  HOTTER! (I hope I don’t combust when I cross the state line.)

Back to my days in San Diego.

I went to a few estate sales, yard sales and some antique stores. To name a few of my great finds this trip I found an antique kings chair over 100 yrs old in perfect condition, 1940’s bamboo fly fishing pole and fish net, metal costume trunk and a lot of other small beauty’s. Now I need to get pictures up to share the visual of my treasures.

Beside my treasure hunting my family and I took in a Padre’s game went to Legoland along with there Aquarium and water park. We went on a “Pirate Ship Adventure” thru the harbor on a replicated wooden pirate ship and enjoyed the beach.

Now it’s time to pack it up and say goodbye.

Thanks for a good vacation San Diego.
