Hello! Thanks for visiting my page ~ My name is Laura ~ Wincle is in the UK ~ and I hope to see it one day! Possibly, in another life, I've lived there before ~ in an estate called TapThornThistle ~
Tranquil, isn't it? I love living in a forest!
These are photos of my forest taken on 02-10-10 ~ there is always worry of falling limbs when we have ice and snow!
07-05-2010 ~ Herb loving squirrel that daily sits in my thyme, digs in my mint, and within one week ATE ALL my cilantro ~ and licked the pot rim!
I'm a mother to three grown successful children, and GramLolly to six beautiful grandchildren ~
I love to antique and have an appreciation of old things, especially items passed down to me from family: a Singer treadle sewing machine, oak crank wall phone, mantle clocks, flat irons, butter molds, churns and crocks, and iron cornstick pans from a grandmother, an ice cream scoop and parfait glasses from an aunt ~ my mother's Moss Rose china.
I have many collections: hand held food choppers, wrought iron farm implements ~ i.e, rotary hoes, rakes and gears ~ twist handle butter knives, odd thistle patterned silver serving pieces, aprons, cookbooks, small wall mirrors, and old framed floral crewel or needlepoint cottage or barn pieces.
Below are my latest eBay needlework rescues ~ eventually they will end up on a wall!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE RecipeZaar ~ I joined 11-10-2006 and will ALWAYS consider myself a RecipeZaar Groupie!
