Summer Memories


     When I was a little girl and my mother was a little girl my grandmother would go to the fields just outside of town and pick wild strawberries. She would bring them home and make jam with them. I will always remember that taste. It was fresh and sweet and it has been a long time since I have tasted a strawberry with such intense flavour.
     I have my grandmother's recipe and the market where we buy all of our fresh fruits and vegetables from is selling strawberries at the moment. I guess I need to get some jars and get busy. Hope you have some wonderful summer memories too.
        I made this card as I was thinking about how nice it would be to have homemade jam with my scones or toast. Have a great day!

Love Always,
Kim

Antique Images Friday Link Party








     I am joining the Friday Link party at Antique Images. Just click on the link to join the party. Carolyn has such beautiful images. It makes it very easy to make lovely cards and beautiful stationery. For this piece of stationery I used Carolyn's clematis image. I love the colours.
     I remember that when I was growing up we used to see our neighbours clematis growing through our fence. She had her flowers growing on strings that she had attached to her side of the fence. I think that flowers bring such joy.
     Thank you Carolyn for hosting the party. Have a lovely weekend.

Love Always,
Kim

Happy Birthday


      This card is made with the newest pink rose image from the Graphics Fairy. You don't have to do much to make an image like this look good. Today is my birthday. This card is for me and anyone else who likes it. Have a wonderful day. 

      I already received my gift from my husband and we are going out to dinner with my parents this evening. I am looking forward to dinner out and I know the restaurant we are going to will have lots of desserts to choose from. The birthday girl deserves a piece of  birthday cake. I will probably choose chocolate because that is my favourite.

Love Always,
Kim

My New Tea Wagon

     I love all things tea. I love drinking tea. My favourite tea is Darjeeling, that grows in Darjeeling Indian. It is an estate tea that I purchase from a shop called "Cooks Cupboard". Elspeth carries more than tea. She has cooking utensils, sauces and seasonings, wine glasses, teapots and almost every gadget you can think of. My next purchase from her shop will be a couple of graters, you know the new kind that do such a lovely job of grating cheese, zesting fruit peels and so on. anyway back to the tea.
     I have a collection of teacups that I have collected over the years or been given by my mother and grandmother my husband or friends. I cherish all of them. I use them everyday to have my tea.
     It is my birthday this month and I have wanted this for a long time. Now I have one of my own.




     I love giving tea parties for my friends and now I have the perfect piece of furniture. This is my birthday gift from my hubby. Thanks dear I love it but most of all I love you.

Love Always,
 Kim
