Hi! Sorry things have been kinda silent around here lately but we are back!!!
If you know me personally you know that I am a thrift store loving gal!! No lie I'm usually in one at least 3 times a week. I don't always find anything super awesome but lately I've hit the jackpot!
I found these vintage aluminum cookie cutters at Goodwill last week for $3.
The first is by local artist Anne Worsham Richardson. She does natural prints and this on is titled "Carolina Wren and Yellow Jasmine."( which is the SC state bird and flower...fitting...no?) Even better...It's signed!!
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my goodies! Are you thrifting Momma? Found anything great lately?! Please share!!!

A child will teach you many things if you let them. How to love unconditionally. How to find joy in the smallest things. How to get goldfish crumbs in the tiniest car seat cracks.
So, while cooking dinner tonight I took out two of my favorite cookbooks (Farm House Cookbook / With Heart & Hand) and realized that it was the first time they had been out of the cabinet in over 6 months. I didn't need all these fancy websites to give me ideas for dinner. I had my cabinet of cookbooks from my Mother, my Mother in Law, Grandmother and Daddy. They bring me joy. It may just be a simple cookbook but to me it means more. The recipes are tried and true. Cookbooks from family vacation destinations, cookbooks showcasing true home-style recipes and cookbooks put together with love by countless little, old ladies of Hallsboro Baptist Church. And if your Southern you know NO ONE cooks better then a Baptist! So I vow to take a step back and look at the simpler things in life, slow down a little and make Mama's Molasses Crumb Cake on page 332. It's screaming my name!! How about you? What are your simple joys in life?
