The castillo in Simancas

This week, I'd like to feature Lydia's post Croquetas in Simancas. This is a beautiful post about her trip to Simancas and a delicious croquetas de jamon recipe. Mmm! I love seeing the history behind certain dishes or antiques. This post looks like the travel shows I watch on PBS. Great post, Lydia!

Congratulations to the featured blogs!



What have I been doing?


I am still working on the shawl. Last week I pulled it apart and started over with my own pattern. I'm close to going to the second skein of yarn, and I'm watching every row I make so it won't be as bulky. I had kept me from other projects too. I hope I can get more of it done this week!

I haven't forgot about writing posts about my garden! I'm going to take more pictures and plant more seeds over the weekend.

What have I been doing?

I'm still working on that shawl from last week. It's getting too large and wavy. I might have to start over (oh no!), but that's how I learn how to do something right. I feel like it's a good time to try again.

I started working back on my garden over the weekend. Remember the last time I wrote about it? Hmm looks like it was Pumpkin Plants from April 2013. Wow.

Since then, most of the plants I wrote about last year withered away. But the good news is I managed to save one pumpkin plant, and I am proud to say that there's a baby pumpkin growing. How cute! I'll add a post on my plants this week (promise).



Now it's your turn! What have you been doing this week?

Valentine Gifts in Jars

Links to this post
I was browsing through Pinterest as usual, when I saw these gifts in jars. We both love mason jars, and he loves anything that has cool fonts and looks vintage. I found this jar with a handle at one of my favorite places to find random things - the Dollar Tree! It says "county fair drinking jar" with a rooster on it. I put his favorite candy, conversation hearts, and covered it with brown paper. Didn't want to make it look too girly. I tied it together with yarn.


I thought of doing this goldfish bowl, and then I found it on Pinterest. I have an interesting story for this gift. You see, I met my Valentine online (ironically, it was something on the lines of "fish"). It was the perfect idea. I printed these printables from Skip To My Lou's blog. I made the orange one big enough to cover the top. It says "out of all the fish in the sea I choose you". The other on the "fishing pole" (a.k.a coffee stirrer) it says "you are a catch". I would have rather it say "you're the perfect catch".


I brought these gifts over to his work and surprised him, although he surprised me first by stopping by my job with flowers and my favorite handwritten notes. Aren't we cheesy? :)
