NEW Authentic American Jewelry...tooled leather & turquoise

Drop by and see our case of our new authentic American jewelry. American turquoise, burnt buffalo horn, peacock pearls, and red coral with detailed leather work, beading and silversmithing to create beautiful pieces for Fall! Pendants are extra-large and very stunning! Growing up in the small, south-Texas town of Beeville fostered an early love of all things natural for this Texas based jewelry designer.

A home embellished for FALL...

 Fall is slowly coming upon us and this sweet dear friend loves to embellish her home with color and whimsy for the season ahead. A wise and wonderful teacher she likes to start her school season with her home filled with an Autumn touch! What fun we had tucking Fall around each corner...a beautiful home ready for a season of harvest and family gatherings.

My favorite the Apricot Jam...what a fun and interesting recipe can't wait to try it! A new order of jams and kitchen goods will be arriving this week!
Cream Cheese Pastry:
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup butter, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Jam Filling:
1/4 cup almonds or walnuts, finely chopped, optional
3/4 cup Apricot Jam (Pick Up your jar at Bonnes Amies)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Confectioner’s sugar, optional

In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (or a hand mixer can be used), combine the cream cheese and butter. Mix. Add the vanilla and mix until uniform. Add the flour and salt and mix until uniform and the dough forms a ball.
Remove from mixer, wrap in plastic wrap and chill 2 hours to overnight.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or grease.
For crescent shaped rugalach, divide dough into 3 equal parts. Roll each part into an 11-12 inch circle. Spread jam and nuts evenly over each circle, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Cut each circle into 16 wedges. Roll wedges starting at the wide end. Place on prepared baking sheet point side down.
For rolled rugalach, roll each dough part into a rectangle 1/8-inch thick (about 16x10-inches). Spread Jam over each rectangle, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Sprinkle nuts over jam and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. With the long edge of the rectangle facing you, roll up the dough. Gently tuck and tighten the roll as you go. Finish with the seam of the dough facing down. Cut each roll into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Place pieces on prepared pan seam side down.
Bake 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar if you desire.

Made from the finest apricots, our Apricot Jam is a tasty example of pure simplicity. Its subtle flavor and sweet taste make Stonewall Kitchen Apricot Jam a fun and interesting complement to baking and cooking recipes. And since it's a jam, it's also delicious spread on toast, a warm scone or on a biscuit. Expand your palate and try a little Apricot Jam today. It's simple, versatile and sensational.

Large Tufted Linen Bench

 A new piece of furniture at the shop...this lovely tufted linen bench is large and inviting! Perfect to sit at a long farmhouse table...or to make your bedroom cozy and inviting. Would be beautiful in an entry or large area in your living room! Dress it up or down it is a great accent piece for your home!
