Sweet Stuff

Maple SyrupThis must mean spring. Sweet sticky syrup that I pour on everything. The syrup in the Mason jar is made by my neighbour. He taps a number of sugar maples along our streets and cooks it up in his sugar shack on his back lot. The willows from our yard have flowered so we cut them and use them amost everywhere, until the daffodils bloom.

The scones are Maple Syrup Scones (that’s partly why the maple syrup jar is half empty!). Great flavour with whole wheat pastry flour, rolled oats and maple syrup. Here’s a link to the recipe so you can try your own.

The painted project is a used sap bucket. Our local hardware store cleans them up and sells them…for sap, apparently. They were a little confused when I came in and only wanted one tin. Then when I told them I was painting the tin, they looked at me like I was something unusual.

I kept the painting steps for the bucket but they’re not yet written so anyone could understand them. If you’re interested in receiving a free download, leave a comment at the bottom of this post and I’ll you know when the design is ready for download.

    There is nothing like taking ordinary common things and making art out of it. Yes, I would love the download instructions for this.
    thanks as always for sharing.

    you’re too funny…..I love willows but we don’t have them here….the scones look delightful, and you’ve even dripped the syrup on the sugar shack!!! ingenious! 😉
