DINNER TIME!

Mrs. Trowbridge loved all things culinary, especially her winter stews. She had several stew pots, all decorated with her colorful tole designs. I was going to include her recipe for sowbug dandelion stew, but I didn't think that you would be interested.

I simply adore the text! It's the combination of the imagery and text, that makes this so lovely!

Beautiful, Violet. Your talents are so varied. My mother used to create tole paintings on trays and teapots, and even on two small chests of drawers.

Your ability to recreate your fond memories is a true gift.

Just when I was wondering what to make for supper and then I read about caterpillar/mushroom and sowbug/dandelion stews. So what's for dessert?

I love this little chronicle...
Wonderful work!
