I like the above Tastsville Country Store window.

Banana Bread is really easy to make and it’s really good.  I found a recipe for “Flours Famous Banana Bread” from Flour Bakery in Boston.  The only difference I can see in it from recipes I’ve seen is that it calls for creme fraiche or sour cream.  It also has walnuts in the bread which most banana breads call for.  I pinned it on my Bread board in my Pinterest to save and to try sometime.

Then the recipe for the day on my facebook from the Cooking channel was Barefoot Contessa’s baked Shrimp Scampi.  I love Shrimp Scampi and the recipe is a 5 star on reviews.  I also pinned that recipe on my Barefoot Contessa board on my Pinterest.

I like table cloths and April Cornell has some Country Cottage style table cloths at the Vermont Country Store.  I think the cobalt blue candle sticks with yellow candles looks stunning with the table cloth.

Vermont Country Store also carries the above April Cornell table cloth.  Would love a table like that in a garden.

April Cornell also has cute baby dresses.  The above is called the “romance dress”.

The above cook book is on Amazon and I like how you can look through the book.  I think I might like to add it to my collection of cook books.

I like the above artsy idea of painting by number for adults.

And now they have adult coloring books.  I think the above collection would be fun to have.  On one of the home shoppers networks they have special markers that color really nice.

You know how you can look up and sometimes see neat shapes in clouds.  How neat is the above on looking like an angel cloud!

I like candles and the above candle from The Country Candle is so Spring like.

Kind of cute Mason jar measuring spoons.

I like labels for homemade baked goods, jams, jellies, pickles and more.

I grew up in the country and I just like open fields and crisp, clean air.  But a short time of living in Rhode Island with 6 lane traffic and exciting places to shop and lots of stuff to do always caught my interest as well.

I’m not into fashion, but I like clothes.  It’s fun to read the style magazines and some of the bloggers out there have awesome ideas on what to look for each season.

I like the above top for Spring.

When I got groceries yesterday I got a bouquet of daffodils.  They were only $1.68 for a bunch and they just lift my spirits and make my table look like Spring.

And that is my thoughts for today.
