For the last several weeks I have been finding feathers on my walks.
They just appear when I least expect them.
Have you been finding feathers too?

Have you heard of Crispy Kale? It's my new favorite Summertime snack !!

A while back one of my best friends sent me a recipe for Kale Chips
& I have finally made them!
Kale is so yummy and healthy, you can taste the vitamins
and feel them running through your body.

All you have to do is
Wash and spin the Curly Kale.
Tear into small pieces.
Toss with olive oil.
and Sprinkle with sesame seeds and salt.
Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
Then munch!

I didn't have time to bake and take a photo the Kale after they became chips.
Keep in mind
they are not so pretty, they just taste amazing!
You can also add your own twist with Miso, garlic, pepper and more.....

Some of my friends from the Blog~o~Sphere Think Tank are also sharing their favorite Summer recipes.......
take a look and start to cook!

Mama Bird in 14k

I recently had a request to make one of my Mama Bird necklaces
in 14k gold.
This necklace will be a gift from a Mother to the wonderful Nanny who has cared for her son since he was a baby.
It will be an extra special gift because the family is moving soon.....I hope that the thoughtfulness of the gift brings the recipient joy & when she wears her necklace that it serves as a reminder of her time with the family who I am sure will miss her greatly.

Before the necklace flew off to Chicago, I took a photo.
I will be making a few more Mama Birds in 14k, look for them in a few weeks here.
