Monday's Muddle

A muddle is a miscellany, an unorganized mixture of various dissimilar items or elements.

Meet a Russian artist who paints on BOOKS!

A great site for Vintage Series Books for Girls and Boys! Came across this great tip @ Letters From a Hill Farm. Thanks Nan!

  1. I've saved the page with the corn and chick pea salad as I love the sound of that. I had to Google cilantro though and would probably leave that out as I've never seen that anywhere.

    1. Cath, you can use parsley in place of it. I do. I don't care for cilantro. It is used in Mexican cooking.

    2. Oh excellent, thanks for the tip, Peggy. I wouldn't have known to do that.

  2. I love you Monday potpourri of stuff! It's perfect!

  3. Thanks for the tip about the tree artist. Jack and I visited a lot of gardens and arboretums in and around Philadelphia last year, but we didn't get to Morris. If this heat and humidity ever let up, we'll make sure that's at the top of our list. Swarthmore is just outside of Philly, too.

    The corn and chickpea salad is very similar to what we're eating tonight (black beans, white kidney beans, cucumber, red bell pepper, onion, cilantro, and dressing)! I've printed the recipe because I love chickpeas and corn. Who says vegans don't eat tasty stuff?!
