Zinc Tags for Presents and More

Our Zinc Tags are perfect for trimming those holiday presents with an extra special touch. In addition to writing on them with chalk, they also hold magnets as well. I made my own magnets this year using clear glass stones and heavy duty magnets from Michael's. The Zinc Tags are just what I needed to showcase my magnets and make adorable gift tags to boot. I've also used them to embellish a wire farmhouse basket filled with fresh towels for the guest room. I hope to make our friends feel the love during their stay here. There are so many uses for the Zinc Tags, so fill your friends stocking with their own set, too!

He is the master and his new holiday issue will make your heart race. I instantly fell in love with this blue polka dot paper wreath. There are so many gorgeous papers to choose from at craft shops, so it makes it easy to get creative and match your own decor. I think I'll make a few extra for family and friends, too.

Ornamental Oregano

This time of year, when the garden beds are mainly winding down and new blooms will have to wait till spring, I get my flower fix by turning to the dried varieties. Lavender tends to be a favorite, and let's face it, Lavender gets a lot of attention from the press, but one plant that's often overlooked is Ornamental Oregano. The soft pink flowers against the wheat colored stems creates a gentle bouquet that's perfect for filling farmhouse baskets with pure country style. I've collected a few big bundles for my Thanksgiving decor. Here I've added sprigs to dress my napkins, which I've tied with a little bakers string. It's a nice change from dried wheat or lavender. Ornamental Oregano makes a gorgeous border plant and is easy to grow. It will certainly capture your attention--all year long.

A Saucy Season

My husband falls in love again with cooking every year in September, when the tomatoes are plentiful.

All that produce coming out the gardens must reignite some primal instinct he has to build up his and his family’s reserves, feeding our bodies with naturally delicious food now (and the guy can cook, even if he does say so himself) and stocking up our pantry for later. He joyously mixes the two enterprises, making supper while he’s turning out, say, 8 quarts of tomato sauce for the freezer. For days in late August and early September, and for briefer periods throughout the growing season, the counters overflow with vegetables in various stages of production, while the air fills with the most heavenly aromas you can imagine.

Happy as I am to see every last tomato (and a fair number of zucchinis, cucumbers, beans, beets and carrots) that we don’t eat freshly picked put up for later use, I usually feel a pang of worry that we won’t ever use it all. (Hubby, btw, always assures me that we don’t have nearly enough to get us to spring, let alone all the way to next year’s harvest.) Last year, thanks to a storm that knocked out the power and caused some freezer problems that we didn’t discover right away, we lost several bags of tomato sauce and some other vegetables. But I also worry that he burns so brightly during the harvest, that he won’t have the same energy and passion when the fresh produce stops coming, when the days grow short and his thoughts turn to other matters. When it comes time to use all those tomatoes, he’ll be busy getting the firewood undercover, feeding the stoves, not to mention hunting and skiing. Right now, he’s acting like Emiril Legasse or Bobby Flay, but by Valentine’s Day, his enthusiasm will have waned. He’ll still do a fair amount of cooking, and it’ll all be good. But the thrill will be gone. Will that freezer full of tomatoes be gone? Not unless he opens a restaurant, based on what I’ve seen in the last few weeks.

“You worry too much,” he says. True enough. “And I get a little better at this stuff with each passing year,” he says. “This year, I’m not just stewing and blanching and pickling, I’m filling the freezer with sauce. Tomato and garlic. Tomato, basil and garlic. Tomato sauce and meatballs. Tomato sauce with capers and olives. Every kind of sauce I can think of.”

No doubt. He is constantly refining his systems, perfecting his technique.
“And if you get worried, you could always take matters into your own hands,” he says. “You know, you’re a pretty good cook in your own right.”

Such a flatterer.

Every year in September my husband falls in love with cooking again. And I fall in a little bit more in love with him.

Blackberry Honey Hand Soap is Back

We can't tell you how happy we are that the Blackberry Honey Hand Soap is back. I'm really wishing there was some technology available to allow you to smell this Blackberry Honey Liquid Hand Soap over the internet. It's so good that I find myself coming up with excuses to wash my hands. It's made by the Savannah Bee Company, which is a great little company that does a lot of educating about bees and harvesting honey. They support small bee farmers too. The Savannah Bee Company produces this luxurious soap using beehive products, natural ingredients and southern charm.

When blackberry and honey come together, it creates the most delicious scent. This product was inspired by the intense character created by those little bees.

Bee Fact: It takes 2 million flowers to make one pound of honey.

Blackberry Honey Liquid Hand Soap is available now at Farmhouse Wares. Try the Tupelo Honey Hand Soap, too.
