Because of all of the interest in this post recently, I decided to repost this for your inspiration in the the upcoming holiday season. Yay, I know I have not been around my blog lately. Life has just been happening and my blog has taken a backseat. But that does not mean I have not been creating. The holiday season always seems to inspire me more than any other time of year. I just don’t seem to have enough hours in the day to do all that I would like. So, I have learned to prioritize (okay, so it has... Continue reading

While here in the north woods, I often have time to explore Pinterest more than I do at home. Today while browsing around I came across this great Fall recipe that not only looked Fallish, sounded tasty and was easy all in one. You can find the original post here. Lil’ Luna is one of my favorite blogs that I visit often, so it was very fun when a Pinterest pin took me somewhere familiar. The recipe takes rice krispies, peanuts, candy corn, marshmallows, white chocolate chips and a bit of peanut butter. There is just something about corn candy... Continue reading

AlI I need to do is love my neighbor, right? Loving those I know, folks in my family, people I have chosen as friends is easy. That kind of love comes naturally. Anyone can love like that and we all do. In fact, I often show this kind of love without even trying or being aware of it. But these are not the only people I have been asked to love. What if I was asked to love those who look different than me, who have made different choices than I have or I may not like? What if I... Continue reading

Recently I started the Beth Moore bible study, Esther – It’s tough being a women. Although I had done this study several years ago, it amazes me how I glean something new each time I study any part of God’s word. Esther and Beth Moore are really getting into my business. In the first two weeks, the study has made me think about when I am feeling threatened by a situation or someone in my life, what is the history behind that threat. Why am I reacting in such a negative way? Why is it I feel the need to... Continue reading

-- Re-post -- Because this is one of my favorite recipes and I am always searching for it, I thought I would re-post it again. I have made it many times since the original post it is always a big hit. For the first time, I tried gilled pizza. My friend Sheri, has been grilling pizza for a while and our family has had the pleasure of experiencing it. Sheri is a grill expert so trying this grilled pizza thing was a little out of my league, but this recipe is so easy that I thought I could make it... Continue reading

Door to Door Organics delivers to my house every other week. It just might be one of the highlights of my day when that door bell rings and I find a box like this on my step. To have fresh produce delivered right to my front porch is not only convenient, but makes me feel a bit special. Now, my husband, would laugh at this, just because I am paying for this service/“special” feeling does not really make me special. But I’m going with it. Delivery of fresh produce to my front porch makes me special. Having fresh produce in... Continue reading

Our family, or some part of our family, has spent time at Lake Vermillion in the summer for over 25 years. This year is no different. With 17 of us here, our family brought along our own personal vacation home to make way for more comfortable sleeping for all. Our little vacation home is sitting up in the woods above the boat house with a great view of the lake. We have a hammock to take naps in as well making for a homy place just feet from the lake house. This is the first year in a long time... Continue reading

I have always loved a creative garden with unexpected things used as planters, lots of color and as my husband calls it an “Ozarky” look. He is always having to hold me back from making our garden the junk yard of the neighborhood. You can imagine his surprise, shock, disappointment when I told him I would be putting an old tricycle on our front porch as planter. However, he is always a good sport and lets me do my own thing up to a point. The “junk” (my treasures) in the garden was acceptable, but bringing it to the front... Continue reading

I know, I know, I have not been here for a looooooooooooooooooong time. There is no excuse other than life has just gotten away from me and I have not taken the time to record it here. I have thought about lots of posts and believe me if you are missing my creative posts of projects around the house there are pictures galore ready to post. They will be coming. But this time, I really am back. Even if it is just a short little ditty, you will be getting things from me regularly. Here are just a couple of... Continue reading

Simple Spring mantel, seriously, I am going simple? Normally, when it comes to decorating “simple” is not in my vocabulary. My mantel has looked like this. And this . . . And this . . . And many more looks. My mantel decorations change often during the year according to the season. The mantel is one place when you decorate it for a season and the whole room seems to carry the festive feel. Going simple is a change for me, but I like it. Now that I spend one day a week at Picture Perfect Interiors, I find myself... Continue reading

Because I make window treatments daily at Stitches By Sturman, my windows in my home often get over looked or go for far too long without an update. I recently made new draperies for my dinning room, but am not really sure that I “love” them. When you work with fabric and design everyday, it is hard to decide on just that right fabric/design. I tend to change my mind a lot and see a new, better fabric regularly. When I commit and purchase the fabric, by the time I get the draperies finished, I may have come upon something...

Happy Easter! Our family has been celebrating Easter morning for generations. I have been blessed to be raised in a Christian family, so Easter morning was always a big deal in our home. This picture I am guessing was taken around 1972 when our family lived Tulare, California. Yes, our dresses, shoes, and accessories were new for this special Sunday. My memories of Easter morning are full of baskets full of trinkets and candy, going to church, coming home to Easter Sunday dinner and the knowledge that Jesus not only died for my sins, but rose again on Easter morning....

I know that I said I was back to blogging, and I have been thinking about it. During that thinking time here are some things that I have been doing. My girls are both teachers so for the last five years we have gone out to the desert near Palm Springs for Spring Break. My Mom has a snowbird place there. She calls it “the spa”. When she and my Dad first went there the park was called Imperial Spa because of the natural hot springs that make up the pools and hot tubs. So each year we travel to... Continue reading

If you have followed this blog for any time at all you recognize that I have not been around much this year. I am still here doing my creative thing. I just have not been posting much. There is no excuse or reason other than I have lost sight of my purpose for this place where I share my thoughts, creative ideas, and just a bit of my life. However, I feel I am back on track, my purpose has been renewed and I am ready to reenter the land of my blog-o. So let the blogging begin once again... Continue reading
