“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

It rained last night!
First storm of the monsoon season for us...it was gorgeous, claps of thunder, brilliant flashes of lightning, we even lost power for a few minutes!It was awesome.
Plus i'm feeling much better now, so I really enjoyed it. (thank you so much for your well wishes!)
Whenever there's rain, or it's overcast, I get into a happy/let's bake/tell stories/Halloweenish type mood.
So I'd like to share some pictures of a couple of stuffed characters I created.

This girly went to haunt a ghost hunting friend of mine..

And this young lady is going to a new home in N.M.in the next few days:)

I have a 'spooky' painting I started but that will have to be for a later post 'cause it's not quite finished.
Ok, I need to stop writing and get to work on the camper (since I've been neglecting it lately)
Hopefully it will rain again tonight!
Have a great Thursday, I'll see you soon.

Fairy Day party

Last night before bed, Helena & I snuck outside and left bread crumbs and a bitty teapot full of milk and honey for the fairies.

This morning right before sunrise deep in the garden, we found the remains of what could only have been an enchanting party! There was still fairy dust floating around!

upon closer inspection, we saw a beautiful fairy sitting in a tiny swing! She thanked us for remembering Fairy Day and held up a piece of stardust for Helena to take.
She said if we each took a bite we would become fairies for the whole day!

We thanked her and ran back inside the house. I turned to get one last look but the fairy was gone, just a naughty kitten sniffing around.

I asked Helena if she wanted to take a bite....but she already had!

Now it's time for me to have my half and fly around to visit the rest of the fairy day participants!
Thank you Jorgelina for hosting this magical event!

A recipe, a winner, & some fairies

I made some peanut butter french toast with strawberry jam topping! It was great, not too sweet either.

In case you feel like trying it:
1/2 cup milk
3 eggs
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon vegetable oil or butter
4 slices bread
Whisk together milk, eggs, peanut butter, sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Heat the oil in a griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
Dunk each slice of bread in egg mixture, soaking both sides. Place in pan, and cook on both sides until golden, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve hot.

Some people heat up the jam before they place it on the toast, I guess it spreads around better, but I don't think it's necessary.

I used the number generator to choose a winner for the 'Gypsy Dreams' painting and it picked #8 Angela from Free Spirit Haven.

Now i'm off to get things ready for the Fairy Day Party

Have a great day, I hope to see you here later!
