Thanksgiving Wishes



Dear Sisters,

Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh how I love this time of year! The crispness in the air, the crunching of leaves underfoot and cozy nights in, under fuzzy blankets. It’s time to dust off your favorite Fall recipes and gather with friends and family and celebrate all you have to be thankful and grateful for. Come on in for a little Thanksgiving Wish from our house to yours! Continue reading

Life is Like…

In my very best southern drawl Forest Gump voice (which, My Friends, is pretty darn good), “Lie-ph is lack a waul-k through them woodz.”

Although dinners have been a bit boring. Sorry, family.

Perhaps my last bits of inspiration were spent up making Halloween costumes.  It was a warm Halloween up here!

Woodland Garland Tutorial




Hello Friends!  My daughter and I had a friend and her little son visit us last week.  My daughter said she would cook the lunch if I would bring a craft!  I’d been thinking about a way to use some of the many acorns to be found on our farm and since I love garlands of all kinds I decided we would make a Woodland Garland!  This was such a fun project and I want to share it with you!  So lets get started and you can make one too!
