I went secondhand shopping before the holidays and found a bunch of vintage sheets. Score! I was really excited to find this many in one place. I don't love the yellow stripy one but then again I don't really care for yellow. My favorite is the orange and pink one but then again I love orange. It even had a pillowcase. Hmmm... Maybe I could make this. The only problem I have is that it's a european sized pillowcase which is square. I'll have to keep looking for great projects.
On a side note, why can't I get my font all the same?!? How frustrating. Just when I think I have the basics figured out about this blog thing something so simple comes along that I can't make work. Sounds like parenting. Ha.

I like to make these marshmallows during the holiday season. I think this was my 4th year with this recipe. They are easy and fun to make. Pepper helped me this year along with a friend of hers. We had a good time! Everyone who tastes these says 2 things. The first is always "I didn't know you could make marshmallows" and the other is always "these are good" like it's shocking that they are good. Really they are way better than store bought.
The all important licking of the beaters.

The bowl full and ready to go into mason jars for giving.
I use the recipe from King Arthur Flour and like them best plain.
