This morning, my daughter wore a sweater to school. I’m sure it was shed for good, by 9:00am, but there was an actual chill in the air, to welcome the month of October. And suddenly, I have an irresistible longing to cover my front porch in pumpkins of all shapes and sizes. Since that won’t […]

Jack-o-lantern Jars

Holiday Butter Cookies

I’m attending a lot of virtual parties around blogland, and I think for at least some of them, we we’re supposed to bring virtual treats.

Between the big birthday party, miracle worker week projects, and getting Halloween costumes together. This kind of stuff has gotten pushed way down on my list. In fact, the only reason these […]

Gourmet Group–Autumn Edition & your questions answered

I was really sad to miss the most recent gourmet group dinner.

I love this style for Halloween! The weather […]

The family that dresses up together for Halloween…

…has a lot of fun memories! I really don’t have time to be blogging right now. I am in the middle of all kinds of blog-worthy projects. My miracle workers (a.k.a. parents) are in-town, helping me attack an insane amount of home improvement/décor projects for the next week, or so. On top of that, my […]
