Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s Valentine’s Day and I have to say, I scored a big win in the “Valentine” department almost 25 years ago. The Hubs is the best. He just is. All these years later, I still know exactly how lucky I am…and I never take it for granted. There is no one else I would ever want riding shotgun on Life’s Road Trip!

Goodbye 2014

I feel that niggling sentimentality sniffing at my edges again. It comes whenever there's a true Turning of the Page, and a new year is certainly that. It's possibly mental... Today is just a Wednesday, tomorrow just a Thursday, etc, and any day is a good day for change. It doesn't have to be a seminal day to make a new start. It's just a Wednesday, but it *is the last one of this year. So, I'll indulge just a bit.

Support - Pumpkin Pie Style

Hi, y'all!! I'm so glad you are here! This is the post I shared on Sugar Bee Crafts last week, but I wanted to share it here, too, in case you missed the guest post (like I did! LOL) And, honestly, this is too good not to share!

A Tisket, A Tasket, A Nifty, Gifty Basket!

Hey, there, sunshines!! As we scoot into our last days of November, I don't know about you, but I am finding Christmas coming at me like a runaway freight train!

If you are like me, you are almost always broke, er, on a budget, yet you still want to give presents to just about everyone you run into on the street, like a drunken, reformed Ebenezer Scrooge. Of course, not being a lottery winner myself (and if you are a lottery winner, you still want to read this post, because I'm just awesome like that), that can be a pretty tough order.

For me, the fun of Christmas is really in choosing and giving presents. I keep a running wishlist for myself and I've heard that I ruin everyone else's plans by getting myself what I want or need throughout the year as money permits. LOL I hate the thought of someone fretting over what to get me, but I adore fretting over what to get everyone else! So, I want to share with you one of my favorite gifts to give - one that combines the feel of something handmade and personal with the ease of store-bought, all on a thrifty budget!

The Open-Door Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving, in our extended family, is my holiday. My mother-in-law does Christmas. My sister-in-law does Easter. But I do Thanksgiving. I have recipes that date back to my great-grandmother. Everything is from scratch. The table is set. The décor is fall. I would shoot for House Beautiful magazine layout perfection every year. I'd fail miserably, but I'd shoot for it!


Yeah, my table never looks like that, except in my head. LOL

The Haunting of MY Hill House

Hey, friends! I'm in the best mood!! Why? Because it's October and October means HALLOWEEN! The scarier, the better!

I'm going to level with you all - we are a rather twisted family. I can promise you, we have more in common with the Addams Family than The Cleavers. If we were left to our own devices (and wouldn't draw complete ostracization from our neighbors and end up having warrants put out on us by code enforcement officers), we would probably live in a "haunted house" all year 'round. Since I can't, and since I don't have unlimited funds to spend, let me show you what we do and how we do it cheap!
