Catching up

Here are some photos from last Thursday and Friday. I stopped to check-out what was new at the Antique Mall in town and there were some stylish automobiles across the street. I also managed to get the iron gate and lovely home in the picture. 


A sweet gate


I finally filled the empty space above the computer. I'm very pleased with it. The cork board was from my husband's cast-offs and the material was on sale at JoAnn's. Now I have more space to post inspiration!



We finish up with more goodies from the garden. The tomatoes are ripening and are SO good! Does anyone have good ideas what to do with cucumbers? 

Tomorrow we will be going to the incredible Irish Festival in Dublin
 and visiting my sister-in-law for her birthday. August is upon us. Happy Friday!

Cucumber ideas!

I think the most recent Martha Stewart Living magazine suggested that you use pickle juice from store-bought pickles to make your own (just pop in your cucumbers and keep it in the fridge for a few days).

In Macednonia we always ate shopska salata -- which is diced cucumbers and tomatoes, maybe a bit of oil or salt or vinegar to taste, with grated white (like feta) cheese on top. Seriously, they ate this salad with everything.

You also could look up a cucumber salsa recipe?
