Birthday Presents

These are presents from my friend, Misty.
I love late birthday celebrations!
Has anyone used one of these yet?
I've been coveting from afar but just couldn't bring myself to buy it
Now I have one.. YAY!

 Isn't this an awesome oven mitt?

Every wine chick needs one of these, for sure!

cuppa cakes are my favorite!

...and the absolute best...
the recipe for Paula Deen's Gooey Butter Cakes
on a dish towel!

How amazingly practical is that?

Here are my herbs a couple of weeks ago
so pretty ...

So not only have I been so busy
I've been neglecting my blog

look at my poor tricolor sage, mint and thyme

Obviously, this is not the correct location for these particular herbs
(front of the house where I never go)

 The sage, chives and oregano are doing well on this side of the house
(Probably because I have to walk by them every day)

Check out the basil, dill and tarragon
so vibrantly green!

I'm not a total herb killer !

I promise
pay more attention to anything
I plant in the front of the house
I promise to do better at blogging...

Life is too exciting for me to be quiet !

Perfect for addition for a salad

I cannot wait to try them
