Oh to Be in England!

The 2019 British Issue of  Victoria Magazine is 👌... it is full of great articles and really reminds me of the issues my mother used to get when I was young.

A Ginko Tree

There is a gorgeous ginko tree in our violin teacher's front garden. I cannot wait to see it turn gold this autumn.

Sunday Dinner

I made copycat Alice Springs Chicken (basically chicken breast marinated in honey mustard and smothered in bacon, sauteed mushrooms, and Colby Jack Cheese, loaded potatoes, and salad!

A Ginger Linen Wiksten Haiori

I finally got to wear the beautiful ginger linen jacket my talented sister, Kate, sewed for me when she visited in July. The pattern is the Wiksten Haiori and it is the shorter version in a size large. Many thanks to my friend, Mirona, for snapping my picture after Liturgy today!

Where'd You Go, Bernadette?

I burned through the Where'd You Go Bernadette book fast enough to get to see the film in the theater with my sister, Kate!  It was amazing and I can't wait to watch it again at home when in comes out!

Clay Sunshine

I made some air dry clay things with my little English-as-a-second-language friend this week. We created a sunshine wall hanging for his mama and a pencil cup for his babushka. I'm going to try to find more of this clay (provided by his grandmother) for the trio to work with.

Christmas in August

I found twelve Spode Christmas Tree plates (salad size, I think) in our secondhand shop and snapped them up. My mother has a full set of these and I never thought that I would want to have dishes that are useful for only a short time. After happily using the paper plate version of these on Christmas Day this past year, however, I am convinced that these will be well loved. I will put them in our Christmas bin in the attic now and it will be exciting to unearth them in December.

Runaway Bride

Our town is a little bit famous because it was used in the filming of the Julia Robert's movie Runaway Bride (and also, Tuck Everlasting!). The film's 20th anniversary is this year, so to celebrate there are walking tours being held to show off some of the buildings used in the movie. My friend and I went today before church this evening for Transfiguration. We also ended up on the news! What a neat experience!

Flowers for Transfiguration
