The object in the farm right corner is an antique bottle capper.
Keeping blossoms in these bottles reminds me of how I would pick violets or dandelions when I was a child and bring bouquets home for my Mother. She would always find some little vase to place them in and up on the kitchen windowsill they would go. This same scenario was played out again when I had my own children...memories of a truly sweet time.
Come Fall, I will put these bottles away and bring out something for Halloween. For Winter....some of my snowman collection. For Spring.....who knows!
What is on your kitchen windowsill?

To the left of the window is one of my treadle machines (yes, it works). Blue pottery vases hold scissors, markers and paintbrushes. Another wire school locker hangs above the treadle and holds more fabric and trims.
Yes, here I am taking a little break on the day bed...a bit bedraggled from life on the farm!

Poured the crumbs on top of the peaches.....And, into the oven at 375 for 30 - 40 minutes....removing it when the peaches are bubbly and the topping is golden brown.Mmmmm, Mmmmmmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about it! Don't you just love the fresh fruit of summer?
