links and stuff, and coat lust

I have to tell you all about Mary Jane's Farm magazine, if you haven't seen it- go find one, you are in for a treat. The latest edition, the "Simply Bee" issue has a great article on making no-knead bread the Mary Jane way (page 66 of the Simply Bee issue), and my oh my, she does make it look easy-peasy. I'm seriously thinking of giving it a try. I ruin bread machine bread, 'nough said..
I am having coat-lust over at the Boden catalog. I must have this* Chic Coat, and I must have it in chartreuse..even tho I don't usually go for is just perfect.

That coat was sassy, but *this Jacket would be perfect for a date night, the one evening in the week I might dress up a little...more useful and would go with more. But I want the green one, too.
What is a girl to do? I could save up and splurge on one coat to last me for years...but never two.

Or 3? Because I am always cold, even in the house, this cardigan would get more use...

I want them ALL! I will probably do what I always do, continue to lust after them each month when the catalog arrives, but order none.

I have to say I love the Boden catalog, maybe one of these days I will actually order something.
And it will be an epoch I tell you, an epoch...


Family Fun magazine, Feb. 2009 edition as an easy birdseed biscuit recipe on page 24, and some cute Valentine crafts/cards.


and finally, I have really been enjoying Better Homes and Gardens magazine lately. I've noticed more articles with room update/remodels...for the rest of us. The rest of us that think of a big makeover as spending $100-$200 at the most on a room... And, they are including paint chip names too, a big help when you like the photo and want to emulate the color scheme. It's always been a favorite magazine of mine, but I am finding it much more practical these days.
