As a child, I remember how Mom would bring home these dark red and purple jams from Grandma’s house. They were always sweet and thick, and they never lasted that long, being that they were gobbled up quite quickly. My maternal grandparents lived on a working farm. Well, by the time I came along they… Continue reading Jams vs. Jellies
So it’s been said that April showers bring May flowers, but in this case the “flower” set to bloom will be making her debut this July. Yes, a little girl is in the “baking” as I write this. I have known Rachel’s mother Teresa, for many many years, and ever since I found out that… Continue reading April Shower
Before we get any further into 2014 I thought I had better post the last thing that happened in 2013. I finally got to throw a Holiday Cookie Exchange for friends and family! I held three of these parties when we lived in Washington, always having a wonderful turn out. This party was no exception… Continue reading Holiday Cookie Exchange
Unfortunately, we live in a world where you need home security. There are so many companies out there that claim they can keep you safe from being burgled, but when it comes right down to it, why pay all that money when something so simple just might do the trick? I know I would be… Continue reading Better safe than sorry
The Christmas holiday came and went so quickly this year! It seems unfathomable that another year has whisked by in the blink of an eye. Why is it as we get older that time no longer seems to stand still? There is never enough time in the day to complete a list of tasks, yet… Continue reading Happy New Year!
This one goes out to all the Moms and Dads of “pet children.” Yes, there are presents under the tree to us from our dog. We get the best gifts from her even though she doesn’t have a job to pay for these gift, or the fact that she never leaves the house to go… Continue reading From Me to You
Well he might be “King of the Jungle,” but it’s not his roar that newly expecting parents will be hearing in about a month! Two years ago, I blogged about a diaper cake I put together for a baby shower. It was my second creation, and now this one is my third. The theme is… Continue reading King of the Jungle
My creative streak seems to be running amok, causing me to whip up items on a whim. I made this sign for my sister-in-law to use as a prop in her photography. It turned out so cute! Up close it looks like wood, and it’s been painted to look weathered and vintage. I don’t know… Continue reading Here’s Your Sign
For me, the month of October marks the beginning of the holiday season. Along with all the decor that begins to make it’s way into our homes, so begins the somewhat endless consumption of all the empty calories that make their way into our tummies. Holidays equal baked goods….period. What would the holidays be without… Continue reading Eggsactly
I am now the proud owner of a brand new iPHONE 5. Yes the 5, not the 5s. Since Apple came out with the 5s they are discontinuing the 5, and to be honest there isn’t a huge difference between the two models. My husband decided it was time for me to get on the… Continue reading Hello?
