The little cottage behind the tree was the "summer house" behind the farmhouse in Missouri where our Old Order Mennonite friends Anna and Melvin used to live. It was originally designed as a summer kitchen away from the house for hot summer days. Wouldn't it make an adorable garden shed, guest house, writer's room or cottage? I want one!
Hello pantry fans and blog readers! I'm back from a six day trip to Missouri, highlighted by a stay in an Old Order Mennonite farmhouse, near Versailles, a trip to the Laura Ingalls Wilder farm at Rocky Ridge, as well as a stop at Baker Creek Seeds' Spring Festival (both in Mansfield). I just posted a rather lengthy blog at our book group blog, Cupcake Chronicles, all about Laura Ingalls Wilder and my morning at Rocky Ridge. You might enjoy it until I blog here about a few other topical things...including more about Laura's home, kitchen, and the pantries she had (elsewhere) and wrote about...soon!
I also have some news to share and, as usual, lots of topics (and photos) that I want to blog about here. With all the rain we've been having around here I predict sooner than later.
I'm also "trying out" Twitter. I don't know if it will stick or not. But it might help me to articulate things in 160 words or less. We'll see. If you want to follow me at Twitter, I've added a feed in the column at left. Kind of silly, really. But might be worth a try, at least.
