Just a few little things.. Cleaning the dresser...

Good wonderful morning .....
I found this round mirror in mom's attic.. So I took it home and cleaned it up a bit.. placed my perfume bottles on it.. I love perfume bottles.. some where I have a collection of old ones little ones..

I love this oval dresser mirror, I love the lace inside it makes it very antique ...

Putting a fresh new white dresser scarf and a white with white & pink edging over that..

One of my favorite little pieces.. with the Lord's Prayer..

I love the Pink Roses on the side..

It always feels so good to clean things in my house it brings such a pleasure to have a very clean house... been sort of spring cleaning .. except it Autumn cleaning.. No one is there with me these days.. and my house is whistle clean... I wanted to share this scone recipe that  I got for Oatmeal Scones from
                      Carolyn from Aiken House...            

                                           Oatmeal Scones
                        1 1/2 cups of flour- I usually use part spelt and part unbleached white flour
                        1/2 cup of rolled oats
                        1/3 sugar
                        1 Tablespoon baking powder
                        1/2 teaspoon salt
                        1/3 cup of melted butter
                        1 egg
                        1/3 cup of milk

                        whisk dry ingredients together and then whisk liquid ingred. and add to dry.
                        mix gently together - knead a few times then flatten into a circle about 1/2 inch thick.
                        Place on cookie sheet.

                         Sprinkle top with a tablespoon  of sugar or sugar and cinnamon.
                         Bake at 375 for about 15 min.

I want to thank Carolyn for sharing her recipe..they were just wonderful .. I served mine with Apple jam and butter...
