Summer Favourite: Homemade Salsa

I love making this salsa in the summertime. It's great with tortilla chips, but I like it best on a bit of cheese bread like bruschetta. Yum!

~One large tomato (or a few cherry tomatoes)
~One leek (or green onions)
~One sweet pepper (I prefer to use half a red pepper and half a yellow pepper. It just makes for a more colourful salsa. Green or orange works too)
~One clove garlic
~One Tbsp cilantro (you can get tubes at the grocery store that are perfect for this)
~One Tbsp lime juice

Chop all the veggies up really teeny tiny. Add grated garlic, cilantro and lime juice. Mix it all together and let sit in the fridge for about 3 hours so that all the flavours meld together. Spread it on chips or cheese buns cut into squares and enjoy!!

Just a Couple of Cuties...

I was experimenting with camera settings last week and snapped this picture of Daisy and Clara sharing some secrets in the garden. I think they look pretty cute!

What is the use of a book,' thought Alice, 'without pictures or conversations?

And what is the use of a blog if I can't post teasers of my newest works?
So here's just a glimpse of Alice...stay turned, she will be in full form first thing tomorrow!

Curiouser and Curiouser!

The countdown is on! Alice is just about complete and will be posted in THREE days, Thursday, July 8th. Some of my favourite lines from the amazing book:

I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle!

I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see.

I think I should understand that better, if I had it written down: but I can't quite follow it as you say it.

It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.

It was much pleasanter at home, when one wasn't always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered about by mice and rabbits.

I absolutely LOVE Alice in Wonderland, and I can't wait to see all the wonderful dolls everyone has come up with!

Some Past Creations...

I've been a busy bee this week between Canada Day celebrations, work, and working on my Alice in Wonderland doll. She's coming together great, I'm just adding some finishing touches and she's done! However I feel like I should at least post something this week, so in lieu of a lengthy, descriptive blog entry, here's a peek at some of my past works. Enjoy!
