lordy, lordy. things have been crazy around here. is your summer going as quickly as mine? it’s hard to believe we’ve already passed the fourth of july. it’s like the beginning of the end. but, i must say, even though it’s been a bit busy, my summer as been quite enjoyable and the weather has been just as great! which is quite shocking.

last week i cooked up another batch of jam. strawberry lemonade.

i basically used the standard recipe for strawberry jam and added fresh lemon juice, lemon zest and a bottle of simply lemonade. i’d give you the recipe but i really don’t have one. this is how my jams usually come about.

last week i got a couple orders for the gift shoppe. included were these adorable mercury glass ducks.

    Dude, I don’t even like jam but the pictures and flavors always make it look appetizing. Or maybe it’s the cute packaging…I’m a sucker for good packaging.

    Meanwhile, I think I’m going to save my pennies and come visit. I’m tired of looking at your breakfasts and gift shop goodies and not being able to have either.

    I happened here by chance…lovely blog. I really like the way you packaged the jam and the little glass ducks are adorable, wonder if they would float~ they would be cute in a pond.

    Hey Michael, Just found your blog through everythingetsy.com. They have your printable in the top 100 printables. After I browsed through your blog, gotta say, you are super! I am your newest follower. I would love to own a bed and breakfast. I bet it’s loads of work, but also very rewarding!
