No I didn't make pudding today... But I did make green tea aloe goatsmilk soap and lemon grass aloe goatsmilk soap. Wanted some small guest bats so used empty pudding and jello cups that I recovered from the grandkids. Can finally walk thru the house without climbing over boxes. Still have lots to unpack and put away but am slowly getting the house the way I wanted and even boxed up some of my vintage items to sell later because the house was starting to look cluttered with all my stuff. Downsizing is what we are really trying to do so I am going to have to let go of things and only keep my very favorites. Some I will put on eBay and lots I will put in yard sale or flea market. By letting go of some items I will be making more display room for my favorites. I have my mothers and grandmothers sifters along with a few other old sifters and I really wanted to keep them but didn't have the shelves like I did in the other house to display them so I came up with this ideal for now. In the spring we will be gutting the kitchen and changing it and I will have lots of shelves. But this works for now even if it is "different"!

Oh Peggy, what a darling idea for the sifters! I swear I want to come to your house and just walk around and look at everything! Is your goats milk soap hard to make? I make it but I'm not to crazy over the recipe and want to try a new one. Keep posting those great pictures! Hugs, Sher
