Hello dear blogging friends. I know I have heard some of you say that due to a certain "time crunch" you are doing a "repost". Well, today is my day for that as this will be a repost from 2009. I have to tell you I have been very busy working on things as I have rented a stall (that is 8 x 11 booth) at the local Midway Antique/Flea Market right along I-70 west of Columbia, Missouri.
Today I am sharing (again) these wonderful Zucchini Walnut Bars. These are very delicious - even if they were baked back in 2009. I need to make these again for my husband and myself and to take over to my son and family!
Do you have zucchinis still from this summer?
This recipe is from "Scones, Muffins , Tea Cakes" originally printed in 1996 by Collins Publishers.

Columbia is located about half way between
Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri so if you
come along I-70, please check out my stall
loaded with cups and saucers, homemade
tea cozies, teapots, tea books, etc.
I hope you will enjoy baking these!
Please join me for my blog party called "Friends Sharing Tea". I will join these other parties too: Tuesday Cuppa Tea
I have been doing a lot of sewing these last couple of weeks - I am on a "tea cozy" roll if there is such a thing.
Can a person get bored at home? Not if
you are really wanting to learn new things
and if you love to bake or cook or sew or garden
or craft or read or have hobbies and
the list goes on and on.
We have enjoyed a wonderful summer
in Missouri! I don't think it was as
hot as last summer - or else we are
just starting to get used to it! But with the arrival of Autumn this Friday - I decided to set up a fall buffet down in the tea room.
I am sharing some of the latest
tea cozies I have been sewing. Some years back, I was antiquing in Denver and found some small pieces of very old velvet. They don't make fabric like this anymore. (see the peach colored one) I also had some very old lace to embellish it with.
I think I finally have the dimensions on the measurements figured out for a small 2-3 cup, and a standard 6 cup and a
large 8 cup teapot. I think a standard 6 cup is the most common size. Want to way in on that? Remembering of course that teacups are measured by 6 oz - not 8 oz.
I am cutting up the old sections of old vintage crochet tablecloth. It was badly stained in places. It is underlined with gold fabric to support the crochet. I also sewed a piece of handmade lace on it. All have batting inside and lining:
This one isn't for fall but I am keeping it because I love, love the Sunbonnet Ladies:
I hope you can join me today if you are a tea time blogger . I probably will switch my blog party back to "Friends Sharing Tea" soon. I am linking at: Tuesday Cuppa Tea
