My pretty little BellaGrace keeping watch. Shes a sweet little doll and she is just enjoying the sun.
I went to Wimberly Market Days this weekend with some great girlfriends and I found this bleeding heart plant. I have tried to grow it before and had no luck. We shall see this time. It is beautiful right now. I re-planted it in a bigger pot and it perked up. I hope that I can protect it through our harsh winter. Ha!
With the cooler temperatures settling in I am reminded of when I was a kid and my mother would make this spice tea. This is a truly southern recipe that is very popular. It is also a great gift for teachers, girlfriends and just to make for yourself.

Just put them all in a bowl...
Mix the ingredients thoroughly with a fork until well blended.

It was so cute!
My pictures are not so great and didnt do the goodies justices but I really wanted to share these with all of you.

This is a vintage cone I hung on the front door knob. I am going to fill it with some delicious something!
