The days have been cold. And warm. And then cold, but then soon after, very warm. The bees and birds are confused, the trees and plants are confused, and I sure am, too. It *is* definitely December so it should not feel quite so March-y!
That’s my excuse for not putting up any winter decor, anyways. It feels strange to hang holly and set up the nativity scene with its audience full of tiny pixies and ninjas and such while the windows are open and the sun is warming the house!
Mountain Rose Herbs blog has just put out a lovely herbal wreath tutorial! Made from dried herbs, peppers, and veggies, this gift is meant to be used and enjoyed in a busy kitchen! Pluck a bay leaf to add to a soup, pinch a pepper to crunch into a sauce, or just stand next to it and breathe…yum! There are clever folks at Mountain Rose Herbs!
Myth and Moor is a beautiful site, a site full of stories and cobwebby corners holding magical secrets, mossy rocks with wee scampering pixie feet. If you are like me, with a deep appreciation for food and folklore and the suchlike, you’ll love it, too.
V I L L A G E R S is a really awesome homestead supply store located in West Asheville, and they rock! They host classes, sell beautiful weck jars, cider presses, heirloom seeds, and much more. Best of all, they just launched their online shop! Go take a gander and see if they have something that you need.
