Mushrooms and Bugs

As always each week flies by! Never seems like enough hours in a week to get everything done. Does anyone else have that problem? Maybe it is because there is so much I want to do and enjoy doing I just can't fit it all in, lol.

I fixed fresh green beans, potatoes & ham yesterday for dinner and fried fresh mushrooms, you know the ones that look like sponges, Morel mushrooms. I didn't go hunt mine, I just went to the local farm market and purchased mine. When I was little my grandmother always wanted to take me out on her farm and hunt for mushrooms, well this little girl didn't like walking too far and getting dirty or buggy, (I never out grew that by the way, lol) I could never understand why they would eat those nasty things that she soaked that might have BUGS in them, ick! SO now that I am a big girl I have decided they are very tasty....And to think of all the years I missed out!

Here is a photo of a couple of my latest frames~you can find them listed on Ebay here.
The one with watch faces I haven't go listed yet but I hope to in the next few days. It is so relaxing doing projects in my studio. I was an art major and have created art work for years. This type of art is more relaxing because it doesn't have to be as perfect as felt that my paintings had to be. I will have to post a few pieces of my work some day.

In a couple of weeks my sister is coming up for camper time and we are going to do some fun projects out in the camper, spend the night out there and go see Sex in the City movie. That is what I asked to do for my birthday, I think it sounds like fun!

Well girls, I am a slacker and only putting on 2 flea market items. Check my other blog for some great deals!

I hope everyone has a fun Friday!!

I used to hunt mushrooms with my grandmother when I was a child and wouldn't eat them either. Now I love them.

Your dinner sounds great. Enjoyed my visit.

Hey Michele, You sound chipper and happy. Your birthday plans sound divine. I am sorry I am late getting here or I would have scooped up those push pins. ~ Lynn

Pretty pretties!
I'd be afraid not to buy mushrooms, there are some funky ones in the woods.

I LOVE farm markets. My dear hubby and I just went to one here in Amish Country yesterday.

Your frame with the clock faces is very cool!
