1  Unsolved Mysteries Cabinet in Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: September 21, 2019 11:34:50 AM
Here's a fun piece that features  all of the elements that an investigator of unsolved mysteries would collect.  It's got references to bigfoot, UFOs, the Bermuda triangle, Black Dahlila, mothman, Oumuamua, the Nazca lines, the Voynich manuscript, stolen artwork and lots more.  I even threw in an alien facehugger and Terminator arm because why not?!

2  Israeli Couscous With Roasted Chick Peas and Carrots in Vegetarian / Vegan by MissingWillow on: August 26, 2019 01:05:24 PM
This has been my go-to side dish recipe all summer.  Its so good!  Zaatar is a middle eastern spice blend.  If you cant find it at your grocery store, you can make your own.

Zaatar Dressing
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup olive oil
1 T. Zaatar spice blend (recipe below)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 375.  In a baking dish add:
1 can chickpeas (drained)
3 carrots peeled and chopped
1/4 cup pickled jalapeo slices
Half of the zaatar dressing
Bake for 25 minutes

While that is baking, stir 1 cup of Israeli couscous in a Tbsp of olive oil over medium heat for approx 5 minutes until toasted.  Stir frequently.  Add 1 1/4 cup chicken stock, cover and simmer for 10 min.  Remove from heat and let sit for 10 min.

Combine couscous, vegetables and remaining dressing.  Its good both warm and chilled. 

Zaatar Spice Mixture
1T oregano
1T cumin
1T ground coriander
1T sesame seeds
1T sumac (if you can find it)
1 tsp salt

My coins from SonjaBoo arrived yesterday and I love them!  She went with my ghostly images, blue ribbon county fair canned goods and 1950s housewife snark themes and she nailed them all.  I love how she used the same type in all three of them, it unifies totally different themes together as a collection.  Thank you again, SonjaBoo!

Kwality570 sent me the most wonderful coins!  She went with my snarky housewives (See? Cleaning one thing just make everything else look dirtier), aliens abducting farm animals and D&D themes.  They are all just perfection.  I particularly love the night sky behind the UFO.  Thank you so much!

5  Roasted Tomatoes in Vegetarian / Vegan by MissingWillow on: July 22, 2019 11:12:02 AM
We are in the lovely position of having too many tomatoes right now.  Every morning I water the garden, pick tomatoes then choose those that are fully ripe and roast them.  I used to can them but once I figured out I could put them aside without all the fuss of sterilizing, boiling, etc Ive never looked back.

I start by washing the tomatoes, removing the stem end and cutting the small ones in half and larger ones into chunks.  I drizzle them with a little olive oil and a sprinkle of salt.

They go into a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Roasting brings a lot of liquid out of the tomatoes.  After allowing them to cool to room temperature, I use a slotted spoon to transfer them to a freezer bag and pop it right in the freezer. 

It is such a treat to use these for making chili in the winter!  Once defrosted, they smell like summer.

6  Great British Bake Off Miniature in Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: July 06, 2019 06:54:19 AM
Finally getting around to posting the miniature workstation I made for the Great British Bake Off swap.  The workstation itself is made from a 1:12 scale bookcase turned on it's side. 

The breads are molded paper clay and the other treats are made from polymer clay.  I always love getting the base of a project finished so I can start making the little finishing details!

Part 2 - I have two more things to share that KarenLouiseM sent me!
A sweet skeleton with a bright red heart.

And an ornament featuring a cage full of bats.

Opening this package made me feel like it was the 13 days of Halloween, so many fabulous spooky things.  I am stoked to use the mini bits in some of my own miniatures.  Thank you so much, you are awesome!

Part 1 - My package from KarenLouiseM arrived today.  Be prepared to be amazed and probably a little jealous!   Smiley. She sent me so many wonderful things that I have to post this in two parts...  We live very remotely and our internet is super slowwwwww. 
She sent me a really awesome Happy Halloween bat display (LOVE the bubble dome over the bat) and the teeniest little candy corn guy under glass. 

A vintage trick or treat costume box with a bat (and some tombstones) inside.

So many tiny fun things.... potions, ingredients, tiny people (yay) in jars and the haunted mansion ghosts on itty bitty alphabet blocks.

Books, games owl eyes in a bucket and chocolates. 

Love these heads in jars.

The Beatles/beetles.  I think these may be shrink dink?  So clever.

A shoe house kit to play with. 

More fun minis.  I have a use for that jack olantern right now!

She also sent one of her fabulous fussy cut creations, a G45 Rare Oddities  cabinet.   I am SO thrilled to have this!

When you open it, there are four drawers that pull out. 

Inside the 3 smaller ones are black cat whiskers, angel wings, a lion fish spine and toad bladders and werewolf fur and coffin nails.

The large drawer is full of troll bones, hobgoblin brains and other assorted oddities.

My package arrived from ChameleonHound and its fabulous!  I am so impressed with her array of crafty skills.  Heres a group shot.

She made me a wood burned board that I can think of a few ways to use... and a bottle of homemade vanilla!  I can think of a hundred ways to use that!

A hand painted bunting mug!  I love the shape and size of this and the bunting is perfection.

She sent a star baker box with Mary in the lid and Paul on a magnet that was tucked inside.

She even decorated the bottom of the box.

Thank you again, I love it all!
