Yay! I received this beautiful package from Mlsocci74!

First up are these beautiful feather ornaments. I got about 25 of them! They are made with glitter paper and super pretty!

This is my favorite item: a garland with peace signs. I love how it looks in my garden but unfortunately we have way to much rain here in the Netherlands to leave them outside.

I also got two extra peace signs. I'm sure I will find something I can do with them!

Thank you Mlsocci74! I love it all!

Ah, I need to sort out all the pictures...

This is one of my favourite pictures from our vacation trip. 3000 year old art Smiley

This is from the same day. This "farm" is part of Nordens Ark and they only have old domestic species. Ducks, rabbits, sheep, cows, chickens, pigs and goats. Blekinge duck to the left and Swedish blue duck to the right. We didn't stay long because the place crawled with small children trying to get in everywhere, including the places saying staff only.

We visited a few goodwill shops and antique shops during our vacation. I'll let you guess what this one was.

One turned out to have a "museum" in the back. It was soooooo crowded (both store and museum, but the store looked like an episode of hoarders, only slightly more tidy) and the store owner was kind of creepy. G commented that the museum had a bit much nazi stuff even for a historian to have around. Ahem. Yes. The places you find on accident...

Found some letterboxes... I don't know if it's my imagination, but don't the ground look super dry here? Not enough rain lately. I wish that would mean less ticks, but I had to evict a few after our letterboxing trip. Luckily they still crawled around trying to decide on a tasty spot.

And to end this on a tasty note: Yum!

Harry Potter Starry Night Music Box

Made for my partner in the Burrow Swap.  Bought a basic wood box at Hobby, stained it and painted the top.  Bought music box workings and counter-sink drilled the side hole so the mechanism wouldn't push out too far.  Super hard to let go of!  I'm going to need my own.  ...And filled it with cards too!

Had toooo many blackberries from our bushes, so have been finding ways to use them like crazy.  Came across this cobbler recipe and whoa! Yum!  My hubby, who hates cooked fruit, gobbled it down and kept saying how great it was.  He had more than one serving and has asked for it again.  Told him go pick some more blackberries and I will.... he says "eh, maybe I don't want it that much."  LOL

Blackberry Cobbler
2 1/2 cup Fresh blackberries, washed
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Flour
2 teaspoons  Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Milk
1/3 cup butter, melted

Stir together just the berries and sugar in a large bowl and let it sit for 25-30 minutes. This will bring the juices of the blackberries so that they can be sweetened up by the sugar, this process is called macerating.
Preheat the oven to 375.
Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and milk with a wooden spoon. Next, stir in the melted butter and hand-mix it until the ingredients are well incorporated and you have few clumps.
Use a 8"x8"x2" baking dish.   Lightly grease the pan.  Pour in the batter and smooth it out. Pour the macerated blackberries on top with all the sugar included and evenly distribute it over the batter.
Bake for 45 minutes or until golden. Let it set up for 15 minutes and then serve with ice cream or whipping cream.

Chantilly Cream (when you want to sound fancier than sweetened whipped cream)

1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Put cream, vanilla, and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and beat until soft peaks begin to form. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

This was one hour's picking - 10 pounds!

And no need to get the house hot!  This is great baked with a SunOven.

These are some of my favorite treats to bring when the audience is going to be teen boys.  They always get fabulous reviews, even from adults, but I usually like to take fancier treats to bigger kids lol.  I had a mom once call me and sheepishly asked "My son wants your bars for his treat at his eagle scout night... tonight.  Could you maybe...."  Needless to say I did make them and I always keep the ingredients on hand now! 

This batch in particular was made for a church's youth conference.  Three batches, made in big squares. 

Indoor Smores

8 cups Golden Grahams cereal
5 cups miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup light corn syrup
5 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 extra cups miniature marshmallows, if desired

Measure cereal into large bowl. Butter rectangular pan, 13x9x2 inches. Heat butter in a large pot until melted.  Add 5 cups marshmallows and corn syrup until melted and smooth when stirred.  Add chocolate chips and mix until melted through. Stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal in bowl; quickly toss until completely coated. Stir in 1 cup marshmallows, saving 1 cup for the top. Press mixture evenly in pan, using buttered back of spoon. Let stand uncovered at least 1 hour, or refrigerate for a firmer bar. Cut into 2-inch squares. Store loosely covered at room temperature up to 2 days.

This past weekend we were in Clarksville, TN.  We passed through Cairo, IL.  Same name but not quite the same trip Anana got, though.  Wink

It rained part of the time, but it was still a nice view from the hotel.

On the more mundane side of life we spent a half day at the mechanic's.  New brakes and rotors - how's that for excitement?

I have another layout from my day at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - - used Le Cirque collection from Ella and Viv, stenciled some white paint on the background, used a random feather that was laying on my craft table, and the cardstock title was purchased premade

That butterfly bag is gorgeous!

I received from Undersea_sun -

A wonderfully painted terracotta pot wind chime - one rim got a bit banged up, but I can glue the chip in.  I am amazed at the precision of her pattern repeat.

Adorable bee painted rocks - I am going to put these in the house plants, or out in the back - I am pretty sure if these are in my front garden, they will get stolen... though I would not blame the little girls next door if they want it for their own garden.

A cool faux stained glass butterfly - love the colours!

A cool perler bead Robin - do perler beads fade in the sun?  I think I want to put this on my back door, under the window - if it doesn't fade in the sun.

Thank you so much, Undersea_sun - and thank you gala_apples for organizing!
