Thanks for all the well wishes, I am feeling much better this morning and off to work in a few minutes:>)  I had to share this photo.  Red currants, I have always been curious about them, they look so pretty and I had never tried one.  These were on the markdown rack at Meijer last week, they looked fine to me and the fresh date was some time this week.  For 75 cents I thought it was the perfect time to try them. Aren't they gorgeous? I just had to take a photo, and then I baked some lovely scones wioth these little jewels inside.  I'm afraid they just aren't for me. Each one has a not so tiny hard seed iside that I just don't care for. The fruit itself tastes great and if you don't mind hard seeds in your food you should immediately run out and get some of these.  If you prefer your fruit without hard seeds, but find them on the markdown rack, buy them anyways, they make a lovely photo:>) Hope you all had a great weekend, I'll be catching up with everyone tonight!
 Happy Monday!


  1. I love what you were able to do with 75 cents!! A fabulous photograph and a taste test...I haven't had red currants so I will keep that in mind if I find them in my grocers or at the farmers market!

  2. Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well... Happy to hear you are feeling better:)
    I have never had red currents.. except in premade jam. The little seeds would be a bummer. But your photo of them is lovely!

  3. I am so glad you are feeling better...not nice to be sick.
    I have not ever had red currants in foods and the comment from another blogger about red currants in jelly sounds very delicious!
    I do like to eat them from the bush...they are somewhat tart but I like 'em....

    keep feeling better...

  4. You are so cute, Kathy...and you are now becoming a true blogger..buying things to take pictures of. hahhaaa..that little frame I posted today. it's just a frame but made a fun post anyway. :))
    I've never tasted these either...probably because I knew they had a seed. But, you are right..they sure made a gorjuss photo. :))
    xo bj

  5. They look beautiful! I have never tried them and I am sure I will not now. Don't like cruchy on seeds :-)

  6. We have black currant bushes in our yard. They put off the most aromatic smell!! My grandsons like to pick them and eat them right off the bush. Between those two and the birds, there doesn't appear to be enough for anybody else! But I hear that they are quite delicious.

  7. Me likey scones! And the currants photograph like a dream!

  8. The scones were delicious as well as the pumpkin coffee cake! I think that I'm going to start a blog so that you and the rest of the family can keep up with me in NY.
    Love you!

  9. What a beautiful image you love red! Glad you are feeling much better. xox

  10. You are right ...beautiful photo. Like a painting.

  11. What a fabulous color! I have never seen them here, just like pumpkin pudding! :)
    Hope you are feeling better. The soup looks amazing ESP the toast croutons on top!

  12. blink. It is Thursday night and just now checking in. Goodness. Where has the week gone?! :o) I love your picture. What beautiful berries.
    I hope you are feeling 100% better and that you have had a wonderful week.
    hugs. Trish

  13. I was thinking about you today Kathy. I was lost in the land of fabrics and books about fabrics. I picked up the Christmas Tilda book, which I have at home. That book always reminds me of you. I notice that many people on Spoonflower design plushies on a fat quarter or yard.

    With your knowledge of design, fabric and graphic design, you would be a ntural at designing fabric on Spoonflower. If you ever have any questions, just send me a note.

    This photograph is evidence of your gorgeous sense of design. When I visit your blog, I feel like I have just enjoyed a cup of coffee with a great friend in your cozy home.


  14. They do make a lovely photo :)! I haven't had them before - good to know about the seeds.


Thank you for taking the time to say hello :)
