Cleaning Out Closets And Other Stuff.

I have been cleaning out closets and found a few treasures. These are paint by numbers that my daughter painted when she was little. I have them out for Easter, she is now 28 and will be horrified.I couldn't love them more if they were Monet.
You have to go visit my daughter's blog there are some cute Miss Baby picture said her Grammie.
I found this picture that my mother had, my grand father is on the right he was born in 1893 and on the left is his life long friend. I love this picture it is a bit of my grandfathers spirit he was up for anything. By the time I came along he was getting old but he would walk up the big hill in the winter and race us down on sleds. Such good memories.

I did get to the dump and found these 2 mason jars I think they are pints, the odd thing is they are square.


It was a cold snowy weekend and I felt like cooking. This is oatmeal bread that had
  molasses and honey in it.The bread was yummy with the pot roast and for toast the next morning.

Today I baked some peanut butter cookies, with a cup of tea heavenly.

I am working on transferring a quail hill rug. It is the chicken going to school. I am going to hook it for Miss Baby. I call her Chicken, her mom teaches school. Her dad is a juvenile probation officer so on the flag I will have the NH seal or maybe handcuff the chicken jk:0)
Thank you for all of the good wishes for David we have many blessing to be thankful for.

Big Deal I'm use to dust.

I think your Daughter's PBN Bunnies are wonderful. You can't buy happy memories like that! I've spent the day in the kitchen baking too, but it is nearly 70 outside. I really need a deep cold snap and some snow! At least for a day or two anyway.

Beautiful treasures. I wish I was sipping tea and eating fresh PB cookies. But then I'd have to bake ;)

Oh Cathy! How sweet are the bunny pictures, no wonder you treasure them :o) I'm sure in years to come daughter will understand as Miss Baby produces works of art too!
Your grandfathers photo is lovely, and it comes with loving memories - how can that be beaten?
The oatmeal bread looks yummy, and peanut butter cookies...mmmmmm:o)
I love that you're making an heirloom for Miss Baby to treasure too.
Such wonderful news that David is doing so well - long may it continue :o)

Great finds..I love the jars, so unusual. I think my fav thing about this post are the final words of Erma...she was the funniest lady around and I just loved her! Have a great week and enjoy more toast and cookies that looked like comfort food for the soul!

The mason jars look vintage. There is nothing that makes the house smell as wonderful as bread baking.

Ilove all your pictures this evening. Those bunnies are priceless. Children's art is so beautiful and hard to duplicate. Peanut butter cookies and tea, how perfect...

I love your canning jars with the special covers and that bread looks so good and I bet the aromas are filling your kitchen. . What a treasure in finding this old picture.

I hope that your week will be filled with joyful moments. Hugs. JB

The square jars are fun. The bread sounds so good...wish I was there to sample.

I love those bunnies. So cute! I do the same to my daughters. The baked goods look wonderful. Snickerdoodles and a huge pot of chili at my house over the weekend. Something about all the snow that makes cooking easier!
