Where have I been? Lets grab some ice coffee and chat. Shall we?
So what have I been up to?
A little thespian-age (rhymes with espionage).Here I am givin' it my best Leslie Gore in "Beehive the Sixties Musical". The piece explored the evolution of womens music in the powder-keg 60's. I even got to be an Ike-ette!
I had a little extra time for a new creation......for...
........my beautiful Goddaughter Finnley(note a sweaty JDP coming straight from her show to a welcome to the world party)!
I have had plenty of time to perfect a recipe or two...how 'bout some Sweet Potato soup?
Perfect Autumn fare.
Easy-peasy instructions......chop 3 large-ish sweet potato's ,chop 2 large-ish onions....grab the chicken broth(veggie broth would also work),salt and pepper to taste.
Pour it all in a crock pot and let it simmer most of the day.
Puree everything and add a little fat-free half and half.
Delicious ,filling ,and healthy too!
With all the time I saved on dinner prep....I had time to read my favorite author Francesca Lia Block's new children's book,The House of Dolls.It is magical and ethereal as is the authors style and you and your little girl will love reading about the lives of 3 wonderful dolls:Wildflower, Rockstar, and Miss Selene.
Francesca has a beautiful blog now too, Love in the Time of Global Warming.
...and what would a visit to JDP's place be without a report on my latest thrift-ventures?
You know how I do adore vintage sweaters.
....and just in time for fall.... 2 new cozy lovelies.
...and finally..... one of my many vintage collecting passions are old glass-ware. Preferably of the kitsch-licious variety! These 3 circus High Balls fit the bill to perfection,and only 45 cents each!
Can you tell I'm gettin' my spooky-ookie on at the Pagoda?
I plan to come back and share more next week.
Wonderful to catch up even in the smallest way!
