bloggers who write or writers who blog?

i seem to be drawn to food-oriented bloggers who publish!  one such blog is cocoandme. tamamis' clear writing style, instructions, & her photos have me eagerly anticipating 2012 (when her cookbook is due out)  :)

canning season approaches!

we have gotten so much rain this past two weeks that my cucumbers, beets, cabbage, & spearmint have drowned. while i am going to replant part of the wee patch, i am also prepping for canning season. one can never have too many jars. simplebites has a most timely post on how to avoid canning burnout. read & enjoy!

jeseez....forgot again!

i love maps---the older the better. i'm not to good at following them, but i adore looking at them nonetheless.  combine history with a map & it's double happiness.  history is some of the best storytelling around & vegplotting is doing a really neat abc of chippenham (u.k.) presently (along with wonderful gardens, public plantings, & the occasional book review). read & enjoy!

one of my most *favorite* jewelry artists is having a giveaway! sillycut  does wonderous things with fabrics & metals.  her 'medusa' pieces are a joy to behold, & i am intent on snatching any more than my three pieces up as soon as she makes more!  rare delicacies, indeed. :) in conjunction with isabelle gloria, sillycut is giving away one of her darkly luscious rings....check it out!!

tuesday blog thought

todays' blog is from one of my favorite blogs...purple podded peas! not only is the text beautiful to read (short but succinct, flows softly) but her music selections are as much a pleasure as the photos of her chickens & artwork.
