The Great Morel

After our third spring here in our woods, I finally found them: those elusive Morel mushrooms. I found one by accident and then began hunting in earnest. I harvested about twelve yesterday and plan to hunt again in the coming days. It was so exciting and rewarding when I sauteed some in butter and fried a couple after tossing them in flour. I hope I find many more to experiment with different recipes. I also hope to find and try many Missouri edibles this spring and summer.

Dos a Dos Journal: a Gift for Twins

This was a gift for a friend expecting twins. Each side is monongrammed for each little girl. Great to record firsts - step, word, tooth, etc. Or footprints, first scribbles, photos. I thought the double sided journal was a great solution for twin journaling, good for giving each little one her own attention because their personalities are sure to deserve such. Made with handmade papers, waxed linen thread, ivory laid paper, vintage buttons.
