I’m just a country girl at heart. I love the country style and would love to ‘country’ up my house more than it is.
Here are a few of the little country treasures I have found at the flea markets lately.
I am still drawn to these wall pockets. I found this one Saturday and just couldn’t resist the cheery sentiment – enjoy yourself.
It is always exciting to find a new piece of my Folk Art Pfaltzgraff and I found this canister Saturday. It is just very rare to run into this pattern.
These adorable mushrooms came in the mail today. They sure are cute! Thanks Deb!
I had an order for some of my crocheted mushrooms and I would like to show a sneak peak of how they are coming along.
Here they are on a small Christmas tree.
I thought I would show you a picture of my little red rocking chair. My grandpa had it made for me when I was one year old. There was family who were furniture builders. I always loved my chair and I sat in it until I did’nt fit in it anymore. I still remember the last time I sat in it and was scared that I wouldn’t be able to get out of it! I have kept it all these years.

Lindsey has been making the Best banana bread lately. I thought I would share her recipe with you.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c. butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease 9x5 loaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a seperate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire rack.
