About Us

My photo
Southern, California, United States
My sister and I are "Annie Louise". We live in sunny Southern California. Ever since we were kids our mom would take us to estate sale and garage sales. So I guess it is only natural that we still both love to go to garage sales, flea markets and thrift stores--- nothing more exciting than the thrill of the hunt and the find!! Our style is a cross between rustic, shabby chic and beachy. We are both new to blogging, but have decided to start our own blog. We hope you find this blog interesting and come back to visit often. Thanks for visiting, Jackie and Jeanette

More tomato news

First off, a huge thank you to my niece, Madison (Jackie’s daughter) for helping us learn how to include pictures with our post. Believe me we could not have done it without her. (I’m sure we will be asking how exactly to do it a few more times)

We also wanted to share with you another creation using many of our varieties of tomatoes that we have grown. We also grow basil, parsley, and other various herbs.

We used the basil on the homemade bruschetta and included some parsley in the tomato salad pictured below. The tomato salad is very simple, mozzarella cheese, oil, red wine vinegar, shallots, tomatoes,
and parsley-- That’s it.

We purchased this box at a thrift store

and after drilling some drainage holes in it, we had the start of another herb garden.

Hope you all are having a great day!!

Jeanette and Jackie
