A little egg white and granulated sugar make ordinary fruit a little fancy. But enough for one day. I'll do a little more tomorrow.

In Flanders Field
by John MacRae
In Flanders field the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe;
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Blogging was just a word that I heard people say, but had never really experienced myself. That is until one afternoon in late June when I happened to google something and I came upon what I now know as a blog. How interesting this person's life was, how delicious her recipes looked and how clever her craft ideas seemed to be. Well one blog led to another and another and so the story goes.
It took me all summer long to get up enough courage to create From Beyond My Kitchen Window. I'm still not sure if my blog is as clever or as tastefully assembled as some others, but I have enjoyed every minute of trying to make my blog a reflection of who I am , what I enjoy cooking and where I like to go on a Saturday afternoon.
Thank you to all the wonderful people who share their amazing ideas and lives through their blogs. Blogging is a great vehicle to meet caring, kind, giving and supportive individuals who for an hour or two a week through their computers invite you into their lives. So this give away is just a small token of gratitude for all of the kind comments and supportive words you have written on my blog.
A few weekends ago a friend and I went to the Potting Shed to buy a thank you gift for the give away. Dedham Pottery is something I have loved for over twenty-five years. Each piece is hand made and takes about a week to finish. I hope that whoever is lucky enough to win the flower vase will enjoy it as much as I do.

If you are already a follower your name will be entered in the drawing twice. If you are not yet a follower but would like a chance just to win, you can join and your name will be be entered once. The drawing will take place next weekend. Good Luck and Thank You!!!
