If you are like me, you hope, hope, hope……that someone will read and enjoy your post. In the sea of bloggers, what can we do to make ours stand out each week? Ok, so sometimes we write a post just for ourselves …..or we want to show the family all the great photos of the [...]


A Painting….On the Road to Questa

February 16, 2012

I seem to have painter’s block.  This is the last one I completed and it has been a year.  I had so many issues with this one that I guess I have been feeling that I didn’t know what I was doing.  New Mexico is so beautiful and I have snapped hundreds of photos….ready to [...]


Featured Favorites From Last Week

January 15, 2012

Thought I would share some of the entries from last week’s blog party.  There were so many good ones that I couldn’t chose, so I let you.  I am featuring the most visited by you guys.  I hope you will come back this week for Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbits and see a whole new batch of [...]


Fun Semi-Homemade Christmas Gifts

December 20, 2011

Nurse M & M (daughter #3 and author of 52 Mantels) and I went to Ikea the other Day to do some shopping.  What an experience!  Have you visited that store?  We started in the restaurant to eat a little Swedish fare (well…maybe not) but we could have.  Great little lunch special and Lil Punkin [...]


His Name is Called Emmanuel

December 7, 2011

I love to celebrate Christmas and I enjoy all the decorations, particularly vintage, glittery, sparkly things.  I get into all the gifts and lights and Christmas music. I love the Christmas shows and shopping and all the family traditions….and the great food.    However, the birth of a baby in a manger is what it is [...]


Autumn Leaf Craft

October 30, 2011

My daughter and I crafted together the other day.  It was a great deal of fun, though I am not sure if the Lil Punkin (granddaughter #5) was enjoying it as much as we did.  That is what high chairs and DVD’s are really for you know.  (Did I say that out loud?) This craft [...]

Ready to Rally the Paint Brushes

February 10, 2011

Started a painting last week after finally finishing one that I had been working on since summer.  That was a mistake!  I mean working on one for so long.  I noodled it to death, which is art lingo for “overworked it without a positive result”. Maybe some day I will like it, after it sits [...]


Ode to a Special Occasion

January 19, 2011

Last weekend was full of baby showers for daughter #3 and blessings abounded.  Oh my goodness!  Thought I would share photos of the first shower.  I don’t have the ones from the second one yet. So, instead of a game, we did a craft.  We decorated onesies and then, hung them on the wall.  That [...]


Old Fashion Lemonade

January 12, 2011

Is there anything better to drink than old fashion lemonade.  I don’t mean Crystal Light, which is all I seem to drink, when it comes to Lemonade.  I know that stuff isn’t good for me because it has Aspertame in it….though I still like the taste and calorie content. No, I am talking about the [...]
