It's super cold and overcast and we are in need of a party at my house! As luck would have it, Groundhog Day lands on a Saturday this year. That's right, February 2nd. Perfect! Groundhog Day is seriously overlooked and under-celebrated. I'm mostly kidding because can we really take Groundhog Day seriously? No. But I have cool enough friends,...

I am in love with this pillow from Pottery Barn! I can't put the picture on our site so YOU'VE GOTTA GO SEE IT! Are you in love or what?! I saw it a year ago in the Pottery Barn catalog and, after looking at the price, I was determined to re-create it. I haven't ever done that type of  embroidery and I'm pretty sure that my first attempt would...

Do you often take the opportunity to tell your friends and neighbors how grateful you are, and that you "take note" of how much they do for you? Christmas is the perfect occasion for gratitude and recognition, and this is the perfect avenue. Everyone can use a cute note pad. I got mine at a craft store for a dollar, AND it has a magnet on...

Always trying to come up with something simple, useful and cheap for the neighbors? Try this EASY idea: transparent tape! We all need it, especially at Christmastime. Decorate it or simply put the rhyme on it. Here's the poem: Christmastime is often a rush, With so much to do and no time to hush. We hope this tape on the fridge in full...

Christmas is always so busy, so why not take all the hard work you did in the summer and make Christmas a breeze? We took the GALLONS of cherries and made them into Christmas gifts in July. Once Christmas rolled around we were ready to go! We used this for the tag: Don't let the season get you in a JAM. We hope this helps keep your...

Does making bread intimidate you, just a little? I've been making bread for a LONG time, but there are still some batches that make me scratch my head and wonder what went wrong. Time is another factor. Sometimes I want fresh bread or rolls to go with a meal, but I don't have time in my day to make it. Today is your day to cross both of those...

Hey knitters, this one's for you! Knitting is one of my very favorite hobbies in the world. I love it. If I had to pick a favorite project it would be a close race between minisweaters that I posted on a while ago, and yummy juicy Norwegian mittens. It works, though, because mini-sweaters take me a night and mittens? Well, I kind of pour a little...

Listen, I totally get that it's not Halloween quite yet. I know that we get annoyed with Halloween stuff popping onto the store shelves, practically the second that the Fourth of July is over. It bugs me too. I sort of have an unwritten rule that I don't address Halloween until October 1st  and, yet, here I am posting about not only...

A few months ago I wrote a post on gardening. So, I don't know how your garden is doing but, HOLY ZUCCHINI! I have so many veggies it's outta control! I sort of forget that planting one tiny little plant is going to mean SO many tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, etc.  and all at once. I love it but I'm daily scratching my brain for yummy ways to...

I've moved several times in the past 10 years, and with each of those moves I've had a whole new house to decorate.  In the first home we owned I was just dying to put something on the walls and paint every room. I was very quick about it and, as long as it had immediate appeal, I was happy. I've changed over the years. I've taken a lot more...
