Gorgeous kitchen garden, Ludi!  Here's ours, we just put a weed barrier around all the beds.  We also have too many rocks.

3  Shrimp, Corn and Avocado Salad in Recipes and Cooking Tips by MissingWillow on: May 16, 2015 10:59:07 AM
This is, without a doubt, my favorite summer salad recipe.  It's absolutely delicious.  I've improved on the recipe over the years, here's my current version.



Ingredients:
Shrimp, peeled and deveined
Tomatoes
Avocado
2 ears of corn (boiled or grilled)
Orange sections (grapefruit is also delicious as an alternative)
You can also include other crunchy vegetables like red bell pepper and celery if you like.



The dressing consists of 1/3 cup of olive oil, juice and zest of a lemon, a tablespoon of dijon mustard, a splash of flavored vinegar, a dash of hot sauce, 4 minced cloves of garlic, chopped jalapenos, dill, salt & pepper all wisked together.


Peel and devein the shrimp.  Saute them for a few minutes on each side until opaque.


Slice the corn off the cob, mix with the sauteed shrimp, chopped tomatoes, diced avocado and the sections from 2 naval oranges.  Toss with the dressing and enjoy!  It's even better the second day.   Smiley

Here's the absolutely gorgeous altered puzzle piece I received from our lovely organizer loves2experiment.  I requested that she just decorate it any what that makes her happy (artist's choice).  It makes me very very happy!  Thank you again SO MUCH!   Kiss

5  Prince and Sheila E World Tour in CHALLENGE 108 ENTRIES by MissingWillow on: May 08, 2015 02:27:08 PM
March 24, 1985 was a huge day for me.  I saw Prince and the Revolution play Madison Square Garden during their Purple Rain tour with Sheila E as their opener!  Yep, feel free to be jealous.   Cheesy  I, of course, bought the program but couldn't bring myself to cut into it so decided to frame the awesome t-shirt I bought that day instead.  When I decided to do this project, it took me about 5 minutes to find the components across 3 different rooms of my house.  I feel quite the accomplishment for that considering it's 30 years and 8 houses later!



The tickets were just $17.50.  I think I paid over $100 to see him 20 years later in Las Vegas but it just wasn't the same without Wendy and Lisa backing him. 



Those flowers actually fell from the ceiling of the arena during his encore, which was of course Purple Rain.  This project brought back great memories for me, thanks so much Ticketmaster!

Wow, anna.  Those will be epic embroideries!

Here is my fantastic Halloween supply package from Averia:
Scrapbook paper and stickers.  I love the batty one, it will make a great background for a chunky haunted house!

Ribbon, tape and skull beads (colored ones!)

An awesome array of charms, spooky eyes, buttons, tiny clothespins.  You seriously rock! 

Thanks again for such a generous package, Averia!   Kiss

Hi folks, I was getting my stuff ready for farmer's market opening day this Friday and found another set of pottery buttons.  Just added them to my shop.

Edel, would you be OK with a surprise? 

Here's the jam packed package I received from crazyda79!  First up, some spooky papercrafting goodies.  I've admired this blood spattered ribbon in the past!  The skull is awesome.

A mixture of glass beads, spooky band-aids (I had no idea they made these!), some charms and a glow in the dark fly.  Ha!

A fun mixture of miniatures/whimsies, I already have a plan for the tiny flowerpot.   Smiley

An entire set of these fun Halloween bags. 

And.... a zombie sheep hoop to go with my odd collection.  Woo hoo!  crazyda79 said she was nervous as she had a lot of mixed reactions to it but beauty is in the eye of the receiver and I love it!  Thank you so much for making it just for me!

Lo{ve} sent me the most generous and fantastic supply package ever!  I had Halloween fabrics on my wish list and boy did she deliver!!!  I don't already have any of these (and I have a lovely stash), it's wonderful how different fabrics are sold in different parts of the country.  I can only imagine what Halloween fabrics from other parts of the world are like. 

E-6000 and sculpey!  My current tube of E-6000 is almost empty and very gunked up.  I'd been eyeing these small tubes for my next glue experience.   Smiley

Eyes in three different sizes and some really cute dollhouse miniatures. 

I love everything, Lo{ve}, thank you so much!
