So what happens when you say you'll do something outlandish like post a meal a week? Well, I guess you all know...
Although I doubt it will be a weekly occurrence I must share the Sunday
morning munchies I whipped up, fresh raspberry scones and banana-nut
I recently found out I am to be an aunt for a third time around. My
baby sister is having a baby. My, my, time does seem to zoom by. Luke
and I found an adorable little stuffed horsey at the beautiful Sweden Shop
on Foster Avenue (which by the way if you live in Chicago you should
visit). But it felt kind of impersonal as a congratulatory gift, and so
last weekend I knit her this little sweater. The pattern is from Baby Knits by Debbie Bliss
but in true Georgia form I modified the pattern to have this little
opening and blue button. Something about that blue, I can't get enough
There is also a cute little hat to with, but daylight is gone so picture-taking is done.
This past week was spring break, and while giving some effort to truly
study and work on papers, I had to take a couple time-outs for
thrifting. My mom and I hit the Salvation Army in Uptown, and I was
pleased to find a kitchen tool I truly loved as a child, a nut chopper.
It isn't the first I've found thrifting, but the color was so perfect
it had to come home. The beautiful gray and blue bowl in the background
is also credited to that day.
And I couldn't skip my favorite west side haunt where I found the most adorable matchy-matchy teacups and fabric.
Also I got this set little garden pair to hopefully do some planting on
our new and much improved porch. Which veggies can grow well in pots
instead of the ground?
Oh, yes the cute vintage rainbow fabric hails from the same thrifting
trip as well. Chicago keeps fooling me with glimpses of spring, this
fabric helps on the cloudy days. How one can be fooled after living in
the same place for 25 years is beyond me, but it happens...
