About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

By my hearth making cookies this day

Greetings!
I love cookies, I'm not much into rolling and cutting for some reason, to tedius for me, especially as I am growing gracefully older. 
My  older son loves sugar cookies, and I don't mind making them,
 but the rolling and cutting, no so much. 
But today I found a Amish Sugar Cookie recipe with NO ROLLING- YEEEEHA!
Drop and flatten with a sugared glass....It makes 4 dozen cookies. I figured I send some with my younger son, the Boy Scout to his meeting , normally I make brownies, I have a super quick one pan brownie recipe and the guys love it at the campouts.

 My husband brought me the lovely flowers, the lovely doily belonged to his great Aunt Lucy, who was also his Godmother, I have been gifted many beautiful crochet items and lovely depression glass from my sweet MIL, which she was given to by Aunt Lucy, I cherish them all and appreciate that I have been chosen to receive them.
. Below the doily is the Pioneer woman placemat  And of course the sugar cookies.
The recipe is from Our Simple Homestead
They are called melt in your mouth Amish Sugar Cookies.

That's all I got today, hope yours is blessed.
