Last Saturday I went to visit them again and say hello. I asked the nice cashier when things that have been around a while go on sale at a deeper discount. I showed him what I was looking at and he offered them to me for 75% off. Sold. They are finally mine, and the lesson of the day is: it never hurts to ask.

I saw some popover action on The Food Network, and I've had them on the brain since last week. I got myself my very own popover pan and am going to do this thing. I researched a variety of recipes, including sweet and savory, and decided on this version as a starting point. One of the keys to super-high popovers is heated ingredients- eggs and milk, so the batter is warm, and then that goes into a pre-heated popover pan. I took some pics and love how big they get in the oven. Bam. They are best straight from the oven and since they only make 6 at a time, so they go fast!

This project has been going on for a few weeks, and I finally picked up the glue I needed yesterday to finish it. I wrapped a straw wreath in mustard-colored yarn, made some felt flowers out of grey and dark brown felt, embellished it with a fun feathery thing, and used a navy blue ribbon to create a hanger. I think the colors are great against my blue door!
