Christmas Morning Brunch

We celebrated Christmas in Seattle this year, with my husband's side of the family. I know it is now June, but I'm playing catch-up with my posts. Christmas morning we had the family over for brunch.

Christmas Brunch Menu
Coffee and Orange Juice
*I used Field Roast's Smoked Apple Sage "Sausage"
DIY felt garland from the Purl Bee

DIY Enameled Bottles from Martha Stewart. I collected empty San Pellegrino Lemonata bottles.
DIY Fabric Birds and Owls. Not being an amazing seamstress, these patterns were pretty do-able for me. Leftover blue and white striped fabric from my friend Robin's weddin'.

I'm back!

Hello, friends...it's been a while. To sum it up, the past 7 months have been a little overwhelming for me. No special or dramatic reason, just more responsibility at work and working on projects at home. Writing on the blog felt like one more thing I had to do, so it got cut.
I'm feeling better now, so I'm going to start this up again! I do like writing little blurbs on the blog, and sharing photos of my projects and food stuff. It's nice to feel energy to do that again.

The project we're working on right now (by the way, we DID finish our bathroom...photos to come)...the backyard! We've put in raised beds for vegetables (Kip's birthday present to me). Those photos are also to come. I'll put them in my next post.

First ever harvest! I made yummy Butter-Glazed Radishes from Orangette. Since I had about 100 radishes that needed to be eaten, this recipe put a nice dent in that amount.
