my week in photos, part ii

i made strawberry jam yesterday! chelsea and i had some tonight and man, it is good. in fact, i think i'll have some right now. think people would buy this on etsy? it's fun to make!

flea market treasures. vintage ball jars for cheaper than i've ever seen them. coca-cola bottle opener for on the wall. embroidered pillow. antique wooden ironing board! i'm so excited about this. it fold up, too! i'll take a picture of the mechanism and the legs tomorrow in the light!

my new china! well, new to me. isn't it beautiful? these are the perfect plates.

china and some vintage photos. well, the one on the bottom is an antique, it's from 1913!

table runner! i love this. it's linen embroidered with wool floss. it looks so nice on my table!

herbs and veggie plants at the ann arbor farmer's market. i'll take some produce photos next time!

delicious maple fudge and other candies from the House of Fudge in downtown plymouth. the owner, kristin, is really cool. we talked for almost 45 minutes!



my second batch of oatmeal cookies. this time with butterscotch! so good. a little too sweet for me though...

That table runner is gorgeous! You found it while thrifting?

Helen said...

P.S. Those plates look a bit like your header image ;)

The table runner was in an antique mall, so kind of thrifting :) And I hadn't noticed that about the plates and my header, but you're totally right!

Wow, such a wonderful combination of images.

Your home must be lovely.

I'm trying, Jen! I've just had a big push in my head to get rid of a lot of... unnecessary and not-quite-loved items. I'll be working on this place a lot this summer :)
