yum... 7up biscuits...

For some reason, I really wanted biscuits yesterday morning. I'm not really a great biscuit-maker, but I definitely didn't want any of those 'pop-out-of-the-can' biscuits. No, I wanted them hot, smothered with honey and a big ol' cup of tea.

It did require that I run to the grocery store because I didn't have ANY of the ingredients to make these, but hey- there are only 3 things to buy. Yep, 3 ingredients. Can't beat that for simple!

7up Biscuits

3 cups self-rising flour
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup 7up or Sprite (it can be diet soda)

Combine ingredients and turn out onto a floured board. Knead in more flour until dough is no longer sticky. Pat out to 1" thick and cut with floured biscuit or cookie cutter. Place biscuits, gently touching, on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

If you want a sweeter biscuit like I did, add 1/2 cup sugar to dough mixture; sprinkle a little over top of biscuits before baking.
Mmmm. I'm happy.



so thoughtful...

Every summer I go MIA for a couple weeks. 
I retreat to my 'secret world'... for the last 14 years I've been a director at Girl Scout camp and I can't imagine a summer without it! 
It's always a little slow getting back into a normal schedule so this time I took a little time to work on a card. It had the perfect sentiment for the way I was feeling about all the wonderful people that volunteer along with me. Without them, our camp wouldn't be possible for the hundreds of girls that attend each year.
To all of you, everywhere, that volunteer time to something you love. You're so thoughtful.



remember this...

Today I've got a card that is chock-full of retro.
Nothing feels more vintage than an apron.
Vintage floral that looks like it could have been an apron.
Machine stitching and cups of coffee.



summer fun...

One of the very best childhood memories I have of summertime was our family camping trips. It was such fun and always a new adventure.
This photo of laughing girls sitting on the edge of a canoe reminds me of those endless summer days. They might be sisters- or they could just be friends- but they sure look like they're having fun!
It was exactly the feel I was looking for when I made this card today. 
Endless summer fun.



happy mail...

I received the most beautiful letter last week from someone I'd never even met...
I read it and re-read it, over and over all week long. This special person needed to know just how wonderful she made me feel-
I wanted to return the favor and tell her how grateful I was for that. She should receive some Happy of her own in her mailbox!
Here's the card I made for her... it's full of of my favorite things- a cute little bird wearing a crown, some vintage sheet music and a tea cup.
The envelope inside the card has a special message just for her.
Thank you for all the sunshine, Madeline.
