Happy almost spring!! I usually always have fresh flowers in my house, especially during the dreary winter days!
Fresh flowers are really not expensive, and you can find a nice variety of flowers that will last a pretty long time! Of course, I use my vintage vases! I especially love my large milk glass hobnail vases!

I've been keeping out of trouble by updating my Etsy shops! The main thing I wanted to do was brighten up some dark dreary photo's!
Since postal rates recently went up, I also needed to go through all of my listings and update shipping costs. With three very full Etsy vintage shops, it's taken quite awhile!
I was surprised at just high shipping costs have become! I'm in Ohio, and the difference in shipping something closer to me than somewhere like California, is drastic!
So off I go to continue with my tweaking of photo's!!

|Kale Veggie Soup with Cauliflower Steaks|
The cauliflower steaks were so good (although my hubby wasn't as crazy about them as I was). Slice into steaks, put on an an olive oiled baking sheet, I sprinkled Italian seasoning, pepper, and garlic salt, but you can use whatever you love! The last time I made them was when my daughter Katherine was home from college, and she loves cumin, so I added that to them, and they were delicious too!
Back to the soup, so I sauteed the veggies for maybe 10 or so minutes, medium heat, I only had about 3/4 cup of chicken broth left, so I added that and then some water, seasoned with fresh thyme, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, red pepper flakes, and pepper. Use whatever veggies you have, I used kale, cauliflower, red onion, white onion, celery, carrots, etc., after the broth has been added, boil low, for about 5 minutes. The perfect quick lunch!

Make up your own soup ideas, adding beans for protein, pasta for a bit heartiness!
