happy momma’s day “tea” party

— May 12, 2017

In our house, food served on tiered trays is called a “Tea Party”. Put that same food on platters and we call it a “Cocktail Party”. Put that same food on regular everyday plates and we call it dinner, although we rarely eat an everyday dinner with food of this nature, so that…


restrooms and restaurants

— May 05, 2017

Every good road trip has pictures of the restroom, right? Road trips are one of my favorite ways to vacation. There is nothing like getting into a packed car with the open road in front of you knowing that your day is only loosely planned and your destination is miles ahead of you….


spring canvas tote bags

— May 02, 2017

One of the most fun things I began to do is to create products from my photography and artwork. Last fall when I decided to participate in a couple of craft fairs, I had to design and create all of the items that I was going to sell. Since I don’t do anything…


rainy day coloring page

— April 24, 2017

It’s April, so sharing my “Rainy Day” coloring page printable with you is a must. This was one of the first coloring pages that I drew last year when I started drawing again with real intention. It was springtime then too. I have picked up my fair share of worms this April and…


white legs and wellies

— April 20, 2017

Anyone else have out their winter legs and their Wellies (those fabulous garden boots) recently? It was fabulous to don shorts and my waterproof garden boots and get moving some dirt around. I did have to disinfect our outside toys from the mole or mouse that hibernated in our outside storage shed and…


comfy cozy bedroom coloring page

— April 17, 2017

I was doing some spring cleaning on my website and discovered a few categories (which are like closets) that had either nothing in them or very little. In my home, that would never happen. But on my website, it’s not surprising. I have lots and lots of ideas that may not come to…


music saves lives

— April 14, 2017

Just for the record, I’m not too old. I love to crank my music up really loud. Ya know the saying, “If its too loud, you’re too old!”??? Okay, maybe the fact that I know that saying means that I am too old. Let’s just stick with the saying, so, I am not…


fresh grapefruit in a jar

— April 10, 2017

One of my favorite treats is purchasing a jar of grapefruit. It is so tender and sweet, and I love to buy the jar with three different colors of grapefruit if I can find it. You eat with your eyes ya know. But that jarred treat also comes with a price tag. I can’t remember the…


brown sugar fried sweet potatoes

— April 05, 2017

My husband will be glad that he missed out on this for lunch because this is not lunch food in his eyes. But when I looked in the fridge to see what I should make myself for lunch today, a baked sweet potato waved at me. Ahhh…I knew what was for lunch. Fried…


easy flavored coffee creamer

— April 02, 2017

I am still trying to perfect my homemade coffee creamer. It’s a tricky balance of creaminess to sweetness and flavor and I don’t have it balanced yet. The other day my mind decided to cheat a bit and I am glad it did. This is an easy way to skip some of the…
