Tasha Tudor and other things!


 
Is anyone a fan of Tasha Tudor????  What beautiful flowers in her yard!
 

 
I received new gardening gloves for Christmas!  Dream on.........
 
 
Also received a digital scale!  Now I will be able to weigh all that wonderful produce that I will hopefully grow!
 
 
My dilly carrots were all gone that I had canned earlier so canned up some more from some carrots that I had in the refrigerator!  Yum!
 
 
Make sure you take time to relax and a cup of tea before the yard work and gardening begins once again!!

Oh, we are drooling over seed catalogs-they are already showing up in the mailbox! I am going to look for the Tasha Tudor book at the library.

Hi Kathryn, My husband bought the scale for me......at Bed, Bath and Beyond for Christmas. I am looking forward to using it! Glad you could visit! Have a great year! Nancy

Hi Vicki, I have only received one seed catalog so far!!! Hope you can find the Tasha Tudor book at the library. She has other books also to enjoy. Also a website if you are interested. Happy you could visit! Come again. Nancy

Your teapot is beautiful.

I haven't heard of Tasha Tudor. The cover of the book is beautiful. I haven't really planted a lot of flowers.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Cheryl, I think you would enjoy learning about Tasha Tudor. I love both flowers and veggies! Thanks for visiting me! Nancy

I like the way you think! Spring and sumnmer ARE right around the corner. I have been thinking about the veggies I want to plant this year and downloading free gardening books to my Kindle.

Hi Debbie, Do you order your seeds from a catalog? Because I have a small garden area I am wondering about doing that this year. I received a Kindle Fire for Christmas. I have not found a lot of free gardening books but a few and will keep looking! Working on a table runner I started a year ago! Thanks for visiting! Nancy

That scale looks like a wonderful Christmas gift! May it weigh many pounds of home-grown goodness for you! I have always liked Tasha Tudor's illustrations and the pictures of her gardens are so gorgeous. Wish I had the work ethic to do something like that here!

Hi nutmeg gardener, I think I will really enjoy my new scale. Didn't have a digital before so it was hard to weigh the greens. Tasha Tudor was some lady! Thanks for visiting! Nancy

Oh spring planting is just around the corner in my area. Hard to think about just yet. Lovely new gardening gloves and a great scale too! Great gifts!! Your dilly carrots look wonderful! YUM. Happy New Year!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi emilysincerely, Thanks! I got a good buy on carrots so canned three more pints of dilly carrots today. Peeled the garlic and forgot to put it in! Duh! Guess they will just be "dilly"! Thanks for visiting! Nancy

I LOVE Tasha Tudor too! Even kept her illustrated children's books I originally purchased for my children. Also have her 'Forever Christmas' Christmas book I re-read each and every year just for me. I'll have to see if our library has this Garden book. It looks inviting. You will like having a digital scale. I bought one this past year to record produce harvested from our garden and it's nice to keep records like that. Cute teapot! Looks like you're ready for the new gardening season to begin!!
Happy New Year Nancy!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Ahhh! Hi Lisa, Another Tasha Tudor fan! I have the "Forever Christmas" book also! All I need is a little warmer weather to start the gardening season! Thanks for visiting! Nancy

I'm still winding down after the busy holiday season and haven't thought about my gardens. I haven't got any seed catalogues in the mail yet, either. I am enjoying a hot cuppa while working online, yep taking your advice!

Hi Dewdrop Gardens, Almost all of my holiday stuff put away. Still have only received Miller and Shumway catalogs. Enjoy your tea! Thanks for visiting!! Nancy

Bama Girl said...

Hi Nancy! Those dilly carrots must be delicious! Looks like you're doing some of the same things that I am, cooking and reading about gardening! Your snow sure looks pretty! We probably won't get any this year, argh! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Bama girl, Yep, we are doing much the same thing except you do more cooking, baking and preserving than I do! We have not had much snow which is not good because we have a drought. Glad you could visit! Nancy
