~ Penny Pins are in the making. ~

When I start cutting and trimming pennies,
I just cannot stop until I get a large stash to work with.
You can never have too many pennies...
All hand cut...their imperfections add charm !
Nothing cookie cutter about them.




Penny Pins by Rose Clay at Three Sheep Studio

Perfect for a jacket or just as happy
on a tote bag.  They can also easily hold a 
large scarf or shawl, in place.

Quaker Ball Cross Stitch Designs by Rose Clay at Three Sheep Studio

 I've completed 15 of them so far...
over halfway done.
I'm looking forward to learning how to piece 
all of these designs together to form a ball.





My #3 Daughter is a Wedding Florist...
we always have gorgeous flowers around us.
This shipment contained dozens 
of happy, smiling Sunflowers !
A few weeks ago, several hundred 
snow white Hydrangea filled our garage...
they were for a very large wedding.
(Sorry, no pic :/  But, I will say 
they were huge and beauteous !)




Fresh Corn Chowder - ThreeSheepStudio.com

This recipe has become a family favorite...

FRESH CORN CHOWDER
Ingredients:
6 ears corn, husked with silk removed
2 large potatoes, washed and chopped
2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
2 stalks celery, chopped
3 large carrots, peeled and chopped
1/2 bell pepper, cored and chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced (or can use garlic powder)
1 and 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2/3 cup milk
4 cups water, divided

  • Cook corn in a large pot of boiling water for 5-8 minutes.  Remove from water and allow to cool enough to handle.  With a knife, remove corn kernels from all ears of cooked corn.  Set aside.
  • Discard the water you used for boiling the corn - use this large pot to saute your vegetables in.  Add all vegetables, except corn and potatoes, in large pot and add seasonings. Saute, stirring occasionally, until vegetables have softened, about 10 minutes.
  • Add to pot - 3 cups water and potatoes.  Cook until potato has softened, about 10-20 minutes.
  • Add milk, remaining water (1 cup) and corn kernels.
Yield: 4-6 nice size bowls

Enjoy !




Have yourself a splendid, sunny day...

I'm In The Garden...


Do you see the Cicada shell hanging on the sign ?

I've been putzing in my garden...
what ? putzing isn't a word ?

It is here at our house...
putzing - slowly walking through 
the garden - pruning, picking and pulling.
Passing the time, admiring plants and blooms
and making a mental note of new greenery 
to plant and what plants need moved.
There is nothing fast about it...





Follow me...
around the garden...





My Oakleaf Hydrangea...
the leaves have yet to turn color,
but the flower heads are beautiful...
dried to perfection. Very natural looking.





Gorgeous magenta Cleome in the morning sun.





The birds have flown from this house,
but they will be back next year.





I grow Bronze Fennel for the color and 
beauty of the feathery branches...
but I'm not the only one who likes it.





You can always find
several Eastern Swallowtail Caterpillars
enjoying a meal on it's branches.





This has been an amazing year for Cicada.
Their sound is deafening, 
(but enchanting), in the evening.
There are dozens of discarded shells
all around the gardens, birdhouses and walls.

As a kid, we called these "locust" and would take 
the empty shells and attach them to our shirts,
seeing who could collect the most.
(I think I was in my 40's before I realized
they are not called locust !!)





This Morning Glory has taken over a rose bush.





Already, the leaves are beginning to fall.
We keep a small woodpile for our fire ring.
I'm loving all the different textures and colors,
all trimmings from trees through the past year.





The Harry Lauder's Walking Stick
is beginning to show it's bones !

Thanks for joining me on this September walk.
Have a peaceful and relaxing weekend.
Rose
