The Practical Housekeeper

I have some pictures from one of my antique kitchen books-The Practical Housekeeper.
I love the old artwork in my antique books! I could not get this 2nd one to turn but it is still a beautiful picture! I hope you enjoy them!

Psalm 57:1 Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me, for in you my soul takes refuge.

Look At What I Made Today!

I made this cute little bag today from a pattern at made by rae! It is soooooo cute & super easy!
I USED OLD JEANS & RECYCLED FABRIC TO MAKE THIS! Sorry about the caps! The lining for the purse is the same fabric as the rim. I love it! I am going to make a bit bigger one next time!

Saving Seed

I have been saving seeds for the last couple of years & it has been a money saver! Here is a picture of lettuce saved from last years seed! As you can see it has gone to seed & I will harvest it when the flower heads are dry! Doesn't it make a beautiful flower?
Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God is flawless; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.

Beauty Without Rain

Here is what I found blooming this morning! All with out any rain!
Isn't it amazing what God can do!

Psalm 33:8 Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.

All Without Rain

Look what I found in the garden this morning! The squash are starting to produce even without any rain or watering!
We love the yellow summer squash just lightly sauteed in butter with some garlic tossed in at the end! Yummy!
I am continuing to water the rest of the garden hoping to get something out of it this year! I dug a hill of potatoes & they are doing well also.
