Linderhof


Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

The Scott and The German

I'm a German which is why our house is named Linderhof . . . . husband Jim is a Scot . . . .
And we were able to "score" these two steins -- one for me (the German) and one for husband Jim (the Scott).
But not any German -- a Bavarian German with blond pigtales and a pretzel for a handle and a handful of beer. And the Scott . . . a bagpipe and golf clubs.
Husband Jim collects steins and could not resist these two -- one for my German heritage -- the other for his Scottish heritage.

A Thrify find -- bought one at a time -- first the Scot . . . then the German . . . .

Please join Rhoda at Southern Hospitality to see what other Thrifty Treasures were found . . .

Those are too cute Martha! By coincidence, husband Dan happens to be traveling to Bavaria next month on business!!! I will have to put him on a mission to see what he can rummage up for me. I'm part German too!

Love, Nancy

P.S. Saw Julie/Julia and absolutely LOVED it! Will need to buy it on dvd when it comes out!
I still don't own any Le Cruset and now feel like I need one more than ever!
