Back to rain...

     Wow, first day of Spring and it rained almost all day to the evening...  And it is rainning again today...  Ok rain I'm over you. Go away!!! Lol 
       Before the silly rain I had went into garden to check things out to make my plans of how I'm going to plant this year...  But with all this rain Garden is going to be planted late it's to wet like muddy wet.. 
       I picked a few things...
       Came back in because it was chilly and decided to make a pot of hot tea in my newest find...
I so love this pattern...  Just need one tea cup set...

       This teacup set works well for now...  I really love this set though it is perfect for spring...

       I thought I would share this quick recipe for some Cinnamon Rolls ...  I found these recipes cards among Mama's things she had never opened them...  So I finally did...
       I thought what can it hurt and they are actually pretty good in my Opinion...
So Here goes:  Ingredients:
2 cups sifted four        .......       1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt        .......       1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup vegetable oil       .......       3/4 buttermilk
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter softened        .......      3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon        .......       1 cup milk opitional
1. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl mix well.  Stir in
     Vegetable oil.  Add buttermilk and stir until just blended.
2.  Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth.  Roll dough into a 15 x 8 inch 
3.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Grease a 9 inch round baking pan lightly.
4.  Spread butter over the dough.  Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and mix
     Well.  Sprinkle over butter.  Roll up rectangle, jell roll fashion, starting from one long side.  
     Pinch to seal.
5.  Cut the roll into 1 1/2 slices, cut side up, place in prepared baking pan.  Bake untill lightly
     Browned, about 15-20 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Pour milk over the top if desired.  Serve
     Hot.  NOTE: I DID A HALF CUP OF THE MILK, SORRY I DID BECAUSE SOON AFTER THEY            BECAME TO  DOUGHY.  NOT NICE.) I would just brush the tops with milk only.❤️❤️. You can 
Always do individually... 
       My new duck geese measuring cups...


       I think i should nave browned them a bit more, but I didn't want to burn the bottoms.  It was 
Starting to smell like it was, so be careful...

       Well give it a try maybe you will like them too..  Happy Monday from my house to yours...
              with love,.......   Janice

  1. Ahh...blissful snapshots of still life!

    I have to ask about the pot on the stove, white with three blue flowers. That design is so familiar to me. I think we may have had a baking dish like it when I was a child. Is that a coffee pot?

  2. Hello dear friend. Thank you for your prayers and kind words. I appreciate them so much. Love the tea cup. It is just beautiful. Have a wonderful Easter. Blessings, Martha

  3. Janice, your teacup is very sweet. I love embossed white cups and the posies make it extra pretty! Your blue tea set is lovely. Love the tray they're in too. So glad you've shared this with us and have a delightful week. By the way, I'll trade you the rain for the snow storm we're getting. ;-)

    Easter blessings,

  4. Hope that the rain will ease up by the Easter long weekend. Your pretty tea set is perfect for cozying up with a cup of tea during rainy weather.

  5. Hello Janice. Your teacup is so pretty and really unusual with the plain white embossed pattern on the outside and the posy in the bottom.
    I've been away for a few weeks and just starting to catchup on what has been happening and have enjoyed your post. Now to see what else yo have been up to :)
    Keep well and have a blessed Easter.


  6. Love the beautiful teacup and embossed saucer so pretty and perfect for the time of year. Hope the rain stops soon so that you can get out into the garden. Love the cinnamon rolls, I may give tem a try.

  7. You know, Janice, I think I love the teacup you shared much better than one that would match your teapot. It just is soooo beautiful and I like that it isn't too matchy matchy. The surprise of flowers in the bottom of the teacup is such a delight. Your cinnamon rolls look so yummy and what a nice treat with your tea.
    Happy Easter blessings, dear Janice!

  8. Hi Janice, your teapot is so beautiful! I love the color and your teacup looks so sweet! I haven't made cinnamon rolls in ages! Yours are a good reminder to make some! Way up north where I live we still have snow so I enjoy seeing your garden even with the rain! Wishing you a start of a happy spring!

  9. I' m sorry for the rain. The teapot and tea cup are really beautiful. Lovely and sweet pictures as usual

  10. It rained here too! your buns look yummy!

  11. Very pretty post. I am in love with the blue of course, but the recipe looks like one of my Grandmother's that doesn't work---so I will try. Translating script Danish isnt' that easy. Have a great week, it's sleeting and will snow here in Chicagoland today.
    Nice to find your site, Sandi

  12. Oh, look at all this blue loveliness. That blue doily is so pretty and special. And the cinnamon rolls, they look amazing! Wish I had one to go with my tea right now, Janice. :)

    love, ~Sheri
