Feature Friday: Edith and Evelyn Vintage

DSC_0594

I began seeing this fairly new blogger around in the last year or so and finally checked out her blog and am getting to know her a little better. This pretty lady has had an online shop for a few years now, but really started blogging to share her 1970’s house renovation and wow, is it a stunner. If you like French Country style, you will love Edith and Evelyn Vintage. Cindy is the blogger and she named the blog after her late mother and mother-in-law, Edith and Evelyn. I think you’re going to enjoy this renovation story! I love to see a down trodden, good bones home come alive with new owners and Cindy and her hubby have definitely loved on this home, making it their own.

The plant overcrowds itself, and absorption of

Let’s find out about cyclamen dormancy care and what to expect when your plant begins to fade. Is My Cyclamen Dormant or Dead? During the cyclamen dormant period, the plant may seem to be dead. First, the blossoms shrivel and drop off, and then the leaves yellow and fall. This is a normal part of a cyclamen’s life cycle, and you shouldn’t be alarmed.

I don’t always share a ton of new recipes on my blog, but sometimes I’ll see something online that grabs my attention and this was one of them. It’s a winner! I made it for Mark and we both loved it and ate like pigs that night. He said it was as good as any pasta dish he’s had at a restaurant and I’d have to agree. And it’s a one dish pasta dish that’s easy too. Takes no time to put together!

I saw this on Facebook and it’s from Buzzfeed. They grab you with those short videos that make you say, wow….I can do that, it looks easy and fast! This one really is easy and fast. Anything with shrimp and pasta, I love!

Elm Yellows Disease in Plants The hosts of elm yellows phytoplasma in the United States are limited to elm trees (Ulmus spp.) and the insects that transport the bacteria. White-banded elm leafhoppers transport the disease, but other insects that feed on the inner elm bark – called phloem – may also play a similar role. Native elms in this country have not developed a resistance to the elm yellows phytoplasma. It threatens elm species in the eastern half of the United States, often killing trees within two years after the initial
