Iron Craft #3- Hearts and Flowers

My entry for the heart and flower challenge is a simple little Valentine favor box. I found the pattern on while looking on the internet.  Since I usually give several friends a little Valentine token, this is perfect! I used scrapbook paper to make the boxes which I filled with a little "grass" and chocolates. Nice to go with a Valentine card.

Now for part two--flowers. They were selling carnations at church and my "honey" got me a few. I had a small vase and it needed something more--red buttons--

Iron Craft Hearts and Flowers

just the answer!

Iron Craft #2- Orange

Happy New Year!

It's been a long time since I've done a challenge. I have decided if the challenge fits something I would use and I have the materials for, then I would participate.  I had not planned to do this challenge, but while doing some menu planning, I realized tonight's meal might just fill the bill--even though cooking is not a craft. Grandpa B and I were making one of his favorite meals--apricot chicken--I had my orange!

 Grandpa B does not have a recipe , but the sauce is apricot preserves-about 1 cup and Russian dressing-1/4 to 1/2 cup. Heat together and pour over chicken breasts. Bake 400 degrees about an hour--Yummy!
