I think happiness is what makes you pretty.
Period. Happy people are beautiful.
They become like a mirror, 
and they reflect that happiness.

Cooking in The English Kitchen today . . .  Preserved Stem Ginger in Syrup.  I had despaired of ever being able to get some here. You could find it, but it was very expensive and imported.  So I decided to take the bull by the horns and made my own. It wasn't very hard at all and it is fabulous! 

Have a great Friday.  Don't forget along the way of your day!

  2. I think my stem ginger is President's Choice:)We also have a true British shop as you know..she probably has..I feel for their shop too:(Lovely finds!

    1. I will have to check next time I am in the Super Store! Small businesses are really struggling at the moment. I feel for them also. I am not sure if I trust the vaccine. How about you? xoxo

  3. Happy Friday ! hope you enjoy your weekend!

  4. Nice finds. I made lots of potholder towels as gifts one year. I do try and give homemade gifts.

  5. I always enjoy looking through your finds. The crocheted and knitting projects are my favorites; even though I don't do them. I can wish, can't I especially liked the Christmas wreaths and the dish discs. Then I really liked the birds. I have a friend that would love those.
    the embroidery on the Berets is adorable. I would love to have one of those.
    I liked the Christmas decorations that look like children could help make.
    Blessings and hugs for this one!
    I love Bret
