· Brach's Pure Candies Exclusively

Sam gets to hibernate very little in the off-season,
with always a project for the handyman!

This spring he busied himself with
closing in a corner nook of the porch,
opening space to the inside foyer.
For the exterior beautification of this project
we have collected a fancy array of mossy rocks,
which can only mean...
Sam will soon be learning another handy trade
when it comes to applying the rocks to his new wall.
While awaiting the arrival of a stained glass window
for installation into the wall,
Sam is not one to idle on pause.
His in-between project is shown below...

— Brach's Pure Candies Exclusively —

The pictured antique slant-front display
will have a new life in the gift shop foyer,
tempting visitors of the shop with treats and snacks.
Sam wanted to preserve the feel of original pastel colors,
since he saw it as a confectionery display;
and since I love the shabby chic look, we negotiated...

The former life of the display
included time in a Standard Station.
Hidden in the shambles was the color scheme...

On Friday (April 8) I made an experimental cookie.
Surprisingly, Sweet-Tooth Sam asked for slightly less sugar next time.
So I asked him to give most of that first batch of Sam's Perfect Cookies
to the men working on the church addition,
so I could produce the second edition of the recipe.

As shown in the Monday (April 11) photo, below,
Sam was persuaded to take a break from his refurbishing work
to test the slightly less-sweet cookie.
Shortly after this photo was taken, Sam said,
while trying to install the doors on the display case,
"I ran into a problem getting the doors to fit.
I need another cookie, to think." :)
