She Shed Dreams

 I so intended to create my She Shed this Summer. I envision a bright space created using recycled materials. I have been collecting antique doors and windows for the exterior for my oasis.


Creating a place fit for a queen for the day! Fresh fruit, croissants and freshly squeezed juice served on an old vintage silver tray  sounds divine.  
Mostly creams and white accented with wood tones (worn and aged, of course) will give the inside a vintage hideaway retreat. Will keep collecting antique furniture and architectural pieces and shoot for next year!
thanks for visiting!

Smells great: Looks great!

I love making these Heart shaped homemade cinnamon decorations for Valentine's Day!
This easy to make cinnamon dough recipe is so easy to make! It makes wonderful smelling decorations!
This easy to make cinnamon dough recipe is so easy to make! The lovely homemade Country smelling decorations dry to a clay-like consistency. 

Here is the recipe: 
Dust hands with cinnamon for handling
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1-1 1/4 cup (130 grams) ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground cloves (optional)
You can add a teaspoon of cloves, ginger and allspice to round out the fragrance.
 To get them dry quicker, bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 150 degrees for one hour. Remove from the cookie sheets and bake on the oven racks for another hour and a half. (Don't roll thinner than 1/4 inch if you're using this method.) I like to let mine air dry.

Enjoy,
Karen
