home made coffee syrup

i absolutely LOVE this recipe.  i have used it several times now and have even tweaked it a little by adding different flavors to it.  this is, by far, my favorite syrup base for my coffee.  i think the trick is that it uses both white and brown sugar.  divine.

now, i HIGHLY recommend getting a funnel if you don't already have one.  i, however, DON'T.  so it is a very good thing that i make a little more than this lovely little recycled store bought creamer container can hold, as a good 1/5 of the syrup ends up down my drain!  (it's on my to-buy list, i promise)

this round i flavored it with 3T vanilla extract and 1T almond extract.  we will see how that flavor combination works out!  i have also used another recipe to make a pumpkin spice syrup.  HEAVEN.  if  i don't find myself a fan of the almond, i might just have to go back to pumpkin spice for the next time around.  nothing tastes more of autumn bliss than pumpkin spice coffee!!

i am SO excited that our holiday trunk show is coming up in just a little over a week!  members of the etsy inland northwest team are gathering together (along with a few other local spokane artisans) and putting on a handmade craft fair the first saturday in december at the service station in spokane.


i will be featuring all of the jewelry items in my shop as well as a few that i haven't had the chance to photograph and list yet.  i will also have some of my custom jewelry display cases there as well!  and i will happily be taking custom orders!

so, stop by our facebook event page to get more information and rsvp for the show on december 1st!  there will be gifts perfect for everyone on your list.

fp and a sale

i had the lovely honor of landing on the front page of etsy again a while ago in an absolutely STUNNING treasury.  AND, my piece that was featured SOLD!  it was truly fabulous.  the necklace also happened to be one of my favorites, so a tiny part of me was sad to see it go, but absolutely thrilled to have made the sale.

here is the stunning treasury from Martha of CircleofLifeVA

so lovely!
