Spring Flower Sampler...March 2017



                                     The Spring Flower Sampler from the March 2017 Class......containers of flowers that we love to see when they finally appear in the Spring months. Bright blossoms in a pair of wellies, Forsythia branches blooming in a large glass jar, Hyacinths in a china tea cup, Crocus in a berry basket, Seedlings in an egg carton, a bulb bowl filled with Daffodila, Peonies in a collander and an old metal toy truck holding a pot of Tulips.  I wish that I had half of these in my garden...next year I will.

The Gluten Free & Allergy Free Expo...


               Some of the wonderful things that were given out or that I purchased at the Gluten Free & Allergy Friendly Expo in Schaumburg yesterday. The top photo is of all the coupons that were handed out. The bottom photo is of the samples and purchases. It was a great way to try new things from a multitude of companies.....some were really good. Samples included.... potato gnocchi, lasagna, tons of pizzas, nutrition bars, beverages, chips, cooking and baking mixes. I bought one of the pizza mixes and one of the angel food cake mixes...the samples of these two were so good that I couldn't wait to get home to start baking.

The Stuffed Bird...and Cory


                              Poor Cory.....he thinks that he's being followed by a strange bird that Mom brought home for Easter.  He knows it's not real...but he can't figure out why it's there.  It doesn't chirp, it doesn't want to play and it doesn't want to eat.....so what good is it?

                     I hope that you have a wonderful Easter....and enjoy the time spent with your Family and Friends....because it's not the chocolate bunnies, jelly beans or baskets that are important...it's the people you love.
