touring around, flea and ebelskivers- Happy B'day also to Robin ( my niece) her blog-

While we were out exploring ,  we stopped here at a second hand shop or flea market as it was called
This vintage iron swinging chair is only $75.00
If my husband is reading this, maybe he will say to purchase it  (NOT)

The little iron bed is $25.00 with rails

windows in my daughter and son in law's front door
I made these so she could have privacy

she likes cathedral looking windows

Last but not least we made some ebelskivers , I didn't have package mix,   so I mixed about a cup of self rising flour with 5 tablespoons butter and mixed until it resembled coarse crumbs-1/4 cup sugar- 1egg- I added enough half and half to make thick but easy enough to spoon into pan.

I filled half in pan, added a teaspoon of homemade crab apple jelly that Annette made and then added more mixture, I turned when browned on bottom and cooked other side,  sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.  Yummmm
Next time I will have to record my recipe as I make it.


  1. Enjoyed looking through your blog, great photos. Hope you got the vintage chair-such a bargain price! Linda:)

  2. It looks like you had an enjoyable, if not profitable, day. I love your stained glass and the ebelskivers. Both look wonderful. I browsed through your earlier posts and I'm so glad I did. I love the tone of your blog. It makes for very pleasant visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  4. I love to go to flea markets, garage sales, etc. went today but did not have alot of luck! Maybe tomorrow. Were you able to buy anything? I wanted so badly for you to write that you ended up getting the hanging chair!
