December Wishes...

Wishing you sweet, sugary days ahead as you prepare for Christmas!
Grab a toasty warm drink & a sugary, crisp cookie as you take time to remember the 
"Reason for the Season..."
He came to this earth to give life.... :)

Time for buttery, crunchy apple crisp, right out of the oven,
caramely, sticky apple bar pastry,
homemade applesauce & peppery pork tenderloin....!
Yup! Count me in!

Nevermind that they make great decor items too!
Just FYI...both packets, available as regular or e-packet form on the website!

Merry, Merry Month of May...

Mothers Day is right around the corner, the season of gardening, garage saleing....
to which one of my neighbors replied...."I didn't realize you went "SAILING"......

Quite honestly, I don't think there is a better way to "sale" than FREE!
Tell me this isn't the best side-of-the-road find ever!
Good eye John! (hubby)  :)

And for all you ladies out there... a Mothers Day flower gift from me to you. :)
Happy Day.

January Joys

"Birthday Week!"

I know, I's cold, dreary & blustery....isn't it wonderful? :), floral wrapping paper....the smell of a new bottle of perfume...roses..on a cake...yes, it's my "Birthday Week!"
"Birthday Week?" you say? Of course!
Why only one day? On a month so drear? When you can fill your days with the anticipation of good things to come all month long!

Take for instance, my early birthday gift... a new sewing machine!
I've never had a new sewing machine!

I was quite happy toodling along on my ugly, albeit sturdy & faithful brown Beaumark.

I have however, quite happily converted over to the new!
White definitely looks better in my buttercream, cake-style kitchen. :)
....And yes, that's a brand new quilt you see in the making.... (Roses for January, you know!) ;)

I realize that it isn't "Birthday Month" for everyone...but look for the January joys that are tucked away, nice & warm in your January Home.... dig out that stitchery that's been waiting for you to come back to it for 8 or so months...that tatting or needlepunch that the cat got ahold of....& that quilt that's "almost" done...& don't forget to pick up a white, buttercream birthday cake with white frosting, adorned with yellow & pink roses!
It goes nice with tea!
