My New Addiction...

Yes... My name is Debbie and I am addicted to salt and flour! I spent the day yesterday painting another batch of salt dough ornaments. I tried a few different things this time and have a list of about 25 more that I want to try and do. My favorites this time round were my flowers. I did two different types. Those funky looking things next to the carrots are suppose to be tulips. I think they will look great on my tree in the spring.
I also did some Easter, St. Paddy's Day and fruit.

But I think these flowers turned out to be my favorites this time around.

The recipe is super simple....

2 cups - Flour
1 cup - Salt
1 cup - Water

Mix well until you have a soft, workable dough. You can use cookie cutters or do like I do and just create with your hands.

Bake at 325 degrees F for 1 hour or more, depending on how thick your dough is.

This is a great craft for the kids to do.


Our phrase of the day is:

Fare vita mondana.
far-ray vee-tah mon-dah-nah
Living the high life.


Today is Wendell's first day back to school. Needless to say, I think we are both excited. *laughing* I love him but there are days it is like having a 45 year old child around. After today I should not hear the cries of 'I am bored'.

To celebrate his first day back, I plan on a nice bubble bath and then I am going to make him a nice supper of Cornish Game Hens. I don't really want to do stuffing (too much like Thanksgiving) so I am going to try a new recipe for 'spinach balls'. Its made with stuffing mix. They are suppose to be a appetizer but I thought it would be a nice change. I will share that recipe tomorrow on my recipe blog.

Well, I am off to try and edit some new pictures I took. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
