Talk About Great Looking Legs………

Talk About Great Looking Legs………

With summer in full swing, it was time to add a table to the porch area of our northern Idaho bungalow.  Since the bungalow is a little on the small side at 732 square feet, any chance to expand the living space outdoors is desireable. The porch is long and narrow...
How Sweet It Is…

How Sweet It Is…

Today, I’m taking a journey to talk about some sweet things in my life, and I hope you will enjoy the ride. First, a little story about sweet tea. When we lived in Hawaii, a special treat for us was to go to lunch at the Kahala Hotel.  Located on the southeastern...
The Forgotten Niche

The Forgotten Niche

We have a small niche in our hallway that sits on an angle on the corner leading into our master bedroom. I usually walk past it ten or more times a day.  I should notice it, but you know. The niche is also on the main hallway that most of our guests and family...

It’s a Sign…

It’s a Sign…

For those of you who can remember back to the 70’s, there was a song called Signs by the Five Man Electrical Band.  It was a catchy tune with some interesting lyrics about social injustice and perceptions, but the part that really stuck in my mind was the chorus:...
One Tray, Four Ways………

One Tray, Four Ways………

Once upon a time, I was cruising through the craft store when I spotted this moss and leaf covered tray on the Clearance aisle. Ever the bargain shopper, I just knew I could figure out something clever to do with it.  Well, that was at least two years ago, and all...
Baked Brie Four Ways

Baked Brie Four Ways

I think the world is made up of two types of people…those who love Brie and those who don’t. The Commander and I fall into the “love Brie” category, and it has been so fun to experiment with new ways to serve this favorite for family and friends.  Over the years we...
