The MFF Reveal, Homegrown Style


When I was thinking about how I wanted to first reveal My Favorite Find to the world, I decided there'd be no better way than to give the scoop to my readers first.  In a homegrown sort of way. After all, My Favorite Find is really all about you. I'll be posting the links to the interviews here, and you can click the links to these blogs to learn all about My Favorite Find.

Collecting and Other News


I'm pretty into old cake tins. I think they're so interesting and can add so much to a simple cake. Here are a few I've picked up recently.

I always remember where these finds come from too, which makes each cake special because I'm baking and thinking about that good memory.

The top one came from Junebug, at their Mad Hatter Show.

Second one down was from a rummage sale in Sandpoint, Idaho this summer. $1!

And the last two I picked up this weekend at the Junk Salvation show in Oregon.

Oh yeah, that reminds me. This weekend I met up with my friend, Heather, in Portland and did some antiquing and collaborating. It's really nice to get out and see the shops and shows that exist outside of my everyday life.

In other news, My Favorite Find is getting closer and closer. The big day is no longer months away. Just days now. Just days! Have you signed up yet?

And the best news? The sun has been shining for several days and that makes me happy. In honor of that, I wore sandals today when I met Colin for lunch. It was 45 degrees, but I didn't care. Spring is in my heart.  :)

A Little Chat

Good morning!

It's about that time for me to hold another live chat.  It's an opportunity for me to answer questions you may have or just chat about whatever you'd like.

The best platform for me to interact with you live is Facebook. If you're on Facebook and want to give me a little shout-out as to a day and time you'd prefer to chat, I'd love to hear from you. (Or leave me a comment here).

Happy day,

This & That

I'm playing catch-up today on several things:

6a010534adb750970b010535e4aa35970b-400wi Lots of you have been asking for my peach pie and apple pie recipes.  You can find my Peach Pie recipe here, my Apple Pie recipe here my Mini Apple Pie recipe here, and my Pie Crust recipe here.

I've also been hearing lots of questions about my freezing food techniques, so I'll be posting about that next week.

If you've applied to be a vendor at The Farm Chicks Show and haven't received an email from me, please let me know.  It seems as though many of you haven't been receiving my emails.  If you were accepted as a vendor and haven't received your contract, please email me as well, as they were sent out a few weeks ago.

Happy weekend.

Good News! You Can Shop!

I was so sad when I had to close my shop and had to stop with online orders. I just couldn't keep up. And I've heard from so many of you, wanting to purchase my books and other cute things.

So I have good news to share! I now have an amazon shop where you can purchase my books, other books I love, and products too. And amazon is able to offer my books at such amazingly low prices, it will save you lots.

To go to the shop, you can click on the books icon on my sidebar here or from my website, by clicking on products.

Thank you so much for your support. I adore you.

Serena :)
