Bridget keeps asking me if this picture is of meatballs or stew. No, it's pear sauce, as promised.
And I did make that pie!
Anyone know how to get this white pine to look all golden like our other pine floors? It's only part of a pine floor, so you have plenty of time to think up your final answer.
Upstairs we just threw down the oil-based poly and it was all good. But this pine is new and very... pale. I feel like coating it with tea or something!
When you ask the guys at the various paint stores what to do, they all say something like, "it's really up to customer preference." Really? Really? What if the customer doesn't know how to get to her preference? What then? Oh, you have nothing to say about that, Mr. Floor Guy?
Look it up on the internet and you will see that staining advice is prefaced with "up to customer preference."
I did rub some sage:
And here's some lemon thyme, very potent -- only use a little!
And how about this fabulous cake cover, which I have been wanting and Habou got me from the Cider Mill? Good job resisting the one at Linens and Things! Goodbye saran-wrapped cakes!
