About Me

My photo
Rozy is an old-fashioned sort who likes to make friends and share some womanly wisdom and humor.

I opened the door early in the morning last week to put mail in the box and this was the scene that greeted me:

Getting up early is often rewarded with something beautiful, like a moonset.

We Really Do Celebrate Christmas at Our Home

Someday I'll have a nicer camera and learn to be a better photographer. Until then, my apologies.

The stockings are stuffed and ready for morning.

The presents are under the tree.

Mr.Movie got a new merino wool sweater from Lands' End to wear to church.

TopDad got a cashmere blend top coat--Isn't he distinguished!

Dandylion is excited about the gift from Mr. Movie.

They won't sit still long enough for me to get a good picture!

Mr. Movie has joined a World War II re-enactment group. He loves costumes! And guns, and pretending.

The Whole Shebang

Now that the wedding is a month past, I thought I'd share the whole quilt I made for Lt. Lehi and his lovely bride, who still needs a nickname.

This was a totally frugal quilt, made from what I already had in my stash. When I got to the solid blue border I discovered I didn't have enough so I made four corner blocks and put it all together. The quilting is machine done, by a wonderful local artist. The pattern is a fleur de lis in honor of our Eagle Scout.

What's on my Kitchen Counter

Fresh, unwashed, cage free, homegrown eggs
Thank you to my friend Rebecca for raising chickens and selling her eggs. These are the best eggs I've ever had. And I now understand why recipes call for room temperature eggs. It makes a big difference in baked goods.
