Freshen Up for Fall

I’m not sure why Spring Cleaning gets all of the attention. Think about it. Your children have been home all summer making messes and trudging them in and out of the house. Holidays are lurking right around the corner. Maybe you are hosting a big gathering or have company coming to stay at your house. […]

Holiday Apple Pie with Spelt Crust

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PAM Cooking Spray. A few weeks ago, I was excited to receive an awesome package containing a couple of different cans of PAM cooking spray (baking and cooking varieties) as well as this beautiful red Le Creuset pie dish. I was excited to dream up […]

What I am Thankful For…

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!   I hope you’ve had a wonderful day! I didn’t bake a single pie, cook a single dish, or even set a pretty table today. I’ll tell you why in a moment. In the past I have really tried to focus on being grateful and have come up with ways to help […]

Cozy Tablescape and Oatmeal Breakfast Bar

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Mothers of LIGHT retreat in the mountains of eastern Arizona. I was asked to be a speaker at the retreat, and I also created a couple of tablescapes for the attendees while I was there. Today I’m sharing the set-up I did for our breakfast the first morning. […]

Corncob Treats for Thanksgiving Placecards

I was really pleased with how our Thanksgiving table came together last year!  It was an elegant out-door gathering featuring gold and cornhusks. You can read all about it here. But I thought I would explain a little more about the corncob treats I made to serve as both a kid-friendly dessert and a decorative place […]

Golden Cornhusk Thanksgiving

It’s still November. That means you still want the re-cap of our lovely Thanksgiving dinner, and aren’t totally absorbed in Christmas preparations, right? Wrong? Well, humor me anyway. I was so pleased with how things turned out that I have been very excited to share with you. I didn’t host Thanksgiving. We went to my […]

Preschool Thanksgiving Celebration

The clock is ticking. I’m sure most of you are up to your elbows in Thanksgiving preparations and might not have time to read another post about Thanksgiving. But, in case the kids table is a bit of an after-thought, I’m getting this post up right away, in the hopes that it might inspire you […]

Thanksgiving Mantle

I wanted to give you a quick glimpse at my Thanksgiving mantle in case it provides some inspiration for your Thanksgiving decorations. This year, I wanted a color-scheme that was really calming and easy on the eyes! It’s all neutrals with some muted golds for sparkle and interest. The centerpiece is a gorgeous printable I […]
