Healty Eats

One of my favorite meals is this recipe for Pasta Primavera.
It's healthy, filling and and easy to make.

Here is the recipe:
*1/2 pkg. whole wheat spaghetti, uncooked
* 2T olive oil
* 1 C broccoli florets (I use frozen )
*1 C sliced mushrooms
*1 T butter or margarine
* 1C chopped fresh tomatoes
*1/2 C grated parmesan cheese
* 1/4 tsp. dried oregano leaves
* 1/4 tsp. dried basil leaves
I also add a handful of fresh baby spinach if I have it.
Cook pasta, drain. Meanwhile, in large skillet over med. heat, heat olive oil. Add broccoli and mushrooms, cook just until tender.
Add hot pasta and remaining ingredients, heat thoroughly.
Bye for now!

Is it Spring Yet?

Well, it may not be spring outside yet
(10" of snow outside!).
But this little doll says spring all over!
Meet Skye!
She is new at my Pretty Posh Posy shop!

I gave her sky blue hair!

And lots of pretty flowers on her dress!

She just loves to talk to the birdies!

Check her out at my shop!
Bye for now!

Introducing....Pretty Posh Pose Dolls!

This is an exciting week for me, as I've just listed
some new dolls on Etsy!
But, these are not just any dolls, these are my absolute favorite so far!
That's because they are fashioned after my fav dolls of my childhood.
Bradley pose dolls!
They were very popular when I was a kid,
but I never had any.
So, I started collecting them recently,
and new I had to do my version someday.
But, it took a lot of trial and error.
And I decided to so my own version with a special twist.
I hope you like them!
The first two are Sweetheart and Ruby Red!
Sweetheart is all pink and pretty!

I'm having so much fun making the faces!

And Ruby Red is so sweet!

And coy!

I would love it if you could check them out at my store!
Bye for now!
