Free DIY Recipes Using Fresh Dandelions and Violets From Your Yard, and more...

Before your mow down those ubiquitous dandelions and violets that are invading your yard, go here to learn about their health benefits and get free DIY reicpes ! I have some of the violet blossom vinegar sitting in a dark place right now. In a week or two it will be ready to use in my salad dressing recipe.

Today I am trying the violet and dandelion petals in raw honey.

 There is even an herbal scouring cleanser recipe for houshold cleaning.

Oooh, this is giving me ideas. How about a Royal Herbalist paper doll, with dandelions and violets? She would look cute with my Beekeeper paper doll.

Thanks, Nerdy Farm Wife! You have a lovely blog!

You Must See Cathryn's Cool Design Idea...

You must go to this lovely blog and visit Cathryn, who did an awesome steampunk project. I am only showing you the close up in order to tease you. You will have to head over to the blog to see the finished product. She incorporated my Butterfly Fairy Doll torso (HP17) into it. There is a link there so you can buy the cool box she used for the piece. http://pinxtoncraftclub.blogspot.com/

Cathryn's creation will be going on tour to all the major UK craft shows where it will be on display.

Thanks, girlfriend, for taking my paper doll on the road with you! But, I have got to warn you, she's a picky eater.
Hugs, Rhonda!

Give A Pretzel To Your Sweetheart: A Luxembourg Tradition

Sylvie, my dear customer from Luxembourg, was kind enough to share her story of the Lenten pretzel tradition of her country ...
"Give A Pretzel To Your Sweetheart"
To mark the half-way point of Lent, or “Halleffaaschten,” Luxembourg men traditionally give their sweethearts an almond pretzel to receive a chocolate egg in return on Easter Sunday. The pretzels are made from a Danish pastry dough, decorated with almonds. They can also be filled with nuts or chocolate. Tradition has it that men give their sweetheart a pretzel for Bretzelsonndeg, the Sunday four weeks after the start of Lent. Should the woman in question wish to return the sentiment, she will give a chocolate egg to the man on Easter Sunday. However, on leap year, roles are reversed and it is the woman's turn to gift the sweet pastry.
Thanks, girlfriend! It is interesting that your pretzel is sweet, unlike here in the US, where it is covered with salt and often eaten with beer.
Here is the MA16 Pretzel Lady listing in the shop...

You've Gotta See This Great Idea

Shelly Hickox has a wonderful idea for a surprise gift box using my pink Marie torso. She has complete how to instructions on her blog. It can certainly be altered if you don't have a Sizzix die cut machine. Just use a plain white box. Thanks so much Shelly!

Here is the Marie Torso she used... CS24
