Marian Parsonsa slice of life27 Comments

I can’t believe I haven’t share about the Fancy Little Flea, yet!  I just got busy with other things, but I have to circle back and share about this event.  It was a small market put on by Stephanie Jones of Me & Mrs Jones in Germantown, TN (near Memphis). The venue was absolutely adorable.  Little barns and gardens, beautifully … Read More

January Favorites

I’ve been thinking about sharing a “favorites” post each month for a while now and finally decided to actually do it!  There are so many times when I find a show, a website, an Etsy shop, a beauty product, an Instagram account, etc. that I am smitten with and I want to share them with others.  So, I’m going to … Read More

Marian Parsonsa slice of life13 Comments

For the second year in a row, I actually took a break over the Christmas holidays.  I did some inbox maintenance and spent a little time on business stuff here and there, but I didn’t write any blog posts and I didn’t work at the studio.  I was even pretty quiet on social media. I spent a lot of time, like … Read More

Christmas Song 2016 | Born is the King (It’s Christmas)

Marian Parsonsa slice of life

It’s become a tradition here on the Miss Mustard Seed blog to share a Christmas song.  It started with me sneaking into another room and playing a song on the guitar with a camera propped on a chair.  One year, Jeff and I did a duet, written by a friend of ours.  Last year, I extended a last minute invitation … Read More

marinated skirt steak & an All-Clad giveaway

Marian Parsonsa slice of life, Food

The pot rack in my kitchen might be the one thing in my house that we installed a week after we moved in 10 years ago and hasn’t moved an inch.  It’s never even been under threat of being moved.  I love, love, love my pot rack.  That’s an odd thing for me, because it’s not an antique, but it … Read More

Thank you, New England…

Jeff Pottsa slice of life

I’m still in Massachusetts as I write this, but I’m hanging out in a hotel room and wanted to share how my trip has been going so far. First of all, I just love New England!  I felt that way when we came up here on a family trip to Maine and I feel even more so now.  I love … Read More

baked potato soup recipe

Marian Parsonsa slice of life, Food

I shared a couple of weeks ago that I made a full-fat, no-skimping-on-the-good-stuff baked potato soup as a treat.  I love creamy soups and casseroles, but I don’t make them very often anymore, because they are just so calorie-laden. But it was a dreary day and both Jeff and I were in the mood for soup. And a baked potato soup … Read More
