I'm not a Southern Beauty,
I'm not an Eastern rose;
I'm just a lil' Western Gal
With freckles on her nose.

Roses and Oranges...


Banner Haus News and Musings

Well donkey dearies, it's too quiet around here.
Let's liven it up with either a rant or a giveaway.

Too tired to rant...plus I'm trying to be a good lil' donkey...so...a giveaway!

The exotic prize: Either a bottle of ROSE WATER or ORANGE FLOWER WATER! Depending on which I can get my hands on at the tiny lil' Asian market. Yes, the kind you can use in cooking! Put the word WATER in yer comment if ye care to enter, frens, otherwise sure enough I'll draw a name and get someone who didn't want to play and has no use for this sophisticated flavoring. I like to spritz these waters on my face in summer, too.

I'll draw the winner prolly Sunday night or somethin'.

    AHA! So that is how you keep your flawless complexion, it's that WATER! What a perfect beautiful rose there, mine here don't last long once the japanese beetles come, but I have one knockout rose bush and they never touched it at all so maybe I need to get more of those:) Enjoy your day sweet friend!

  • Faith

    Remember when they used to sell rose water and glycerin together? Do the asian markets sell this combo? Back in the day, the "dime store" would carry this items...now the "dollar store" carries only junk from China...How things have changed.

    Enjoy the beautiful day...my donkey fren

  • Amrita

  • Cinner

    love the Welcome photo Holly, it is beautiful. take care.

  • Dani

    Water, water everywhere and well, you get the idea...we've had alot of rain in the last two days...great for the garden though and our "drought", our county is no longer in drought but the water company still raised the rates..go figure...

  • Doris Sturm

    I love roses. Did you know that rose water is used in making .... are you ready?.....drum roll pleeeez, yep, MARZIPAN! But,.I've made it without! It's just an old German recipe that asked for the rose water in it. I've never done it that way, but I can just add almond extract to just about anything and make it taste like marzipan - I'm so addicted to that flavor, it's scary :-)

    Have a nice day today and thanks for the frizzies!!!! (2 down, 1 to go)

    Bye for now :-)

  • ~~Carol~~

    I never used rose or orange water for cooking, this is really exotic to me!

    Kisses and love from us.

  • Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage

    Rose water or orange water, I love both! We got plenty of water in the form of rain this past week. The grass is turning green from it all. We'll take it!
