Some Honey, Honey

Pear Honey. Never heard of it until I was over here. I made the recipe on Tuesday and, BOY, is it good! The suggestion was to serve it on warm biscuits...I'm making those tonight. Last night I made cornbread, and it was delicious on that.

I picked up this book long ago and found it while cleaning the sewing room. I started one to dress up a jar for my aunt...and I'll need a few more for others. So far it's working up quickly.

There are flowers that go around the bottom and I think I'll make them in fall shades. The cotton in the picture looks white, but it is actually a beige, natural color.

Today is a big day around here. My baby boy is 19! Lots of good memories to share and some personal reflection for Mom. It seems I can't help feeling just a smidgeon melancholy...I miss those baby days. Then when I take a good look at the man Timothy is becoming, I feel proud, too. Emotional, for sure, but it's all GOOD.

What a neat gift these jars of pear honey with crocheted toppers will make.

Happy Birthday to your son! My baby turned 20 a few months ago, so I know how you feel.

Oh I like the way the jars of pear honey look. Who knew? The doilies that are going to go around it are beautiful. I have some apples that I picked, now you have inspired me to make so apple jam. Thank you.

The honey looks delicious, but I had to comment to say that "Love You Forever" was one of Em's favourite bedtime stories. I'm sure it's still around here somewhere :)

Such pretty doilies and your pear honey looks wonderful! Me likes the size and shape of your canning jars too.

Amy, you are much like me. I find it hard to believe that my babies are grown. Time went by much too fast for my taste. I always tease my little one (the youngest) that he might be 60 years old, but if I'm around, he'll always be my baby.

I love the crochet for the jars, and you can start spinning on a little hand spinner. I tried that out first, and moved on to I think I have wheels and one electric one my hubby made. Its very relaxing and makes wonderful socks, hats ect.
