My New Shop and a new Dehydrator

I've been working on my second blog and changed it to a selling one....still in the baby stages but I've had added Paypal buttons...and have a few things  listed..some holiday  tags, a pretty vintage crocheted centerpiece..a holiday craft book and some childrens books....I have some nice flour sack towels I will be embroidering for the holidays....and will list them later....plus I have some vintage aprons and other goodies to add in the coming weeks.....the link is on the left side..the little red storefront.....also if you are on Facebook, I have a page set up...The China Lake Shoppe       ...I will keep my prices as low as possible and right now there is free shipping on everything as an opening special...
I will have a giveaway soon when I get 50 followers so please stop by and either like on Facebook or the blog  or both!..


We are still canning away...Alan is making more of the fig conserve as its simply wonderful.....like the ambrosia in the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe...this time, he's remembered to add the pecans.....I also found a tomato soup recipe on Oodlekadoodle Primitives...it will be nice this winter to have our own tomato soup ready to go on a cold afternoon......with a toasted cheese sandwich....we still have lots of tomatoes with more coming.....
Alan surprised me and ordered a new dehydrator..ours was right above the fire in the rafters and was totally destroyed.....so I will be drying figs and other goodies. Our old dehydrator was a very good one..plastic but the really sturdy kind..we looked several places around here and couldn't find anything like it..but he managed to find one online through Walmart that is similar......it was a nice surprise to see the UPS man come to the door with a large package.....funny, I love getting kitchen gadgets.....not that I have the space but I sure enjoy them...
