Book Review – A Memory Between Us

I was thrilled when Revell gave me the opportunity to read the second book in the Wings of Glory series, A Memory Between Us.    I loved A Distant Melody and was excited to see what was going to happen next.   This book did not disappoint.   I really love when authors have a series that can […] Read more…

Best Ever Sloppy Joes

I have made Sloppy Joes numerous times AND ways.  Finally, my husband had to concede that yes, my mom’s recipe really is the best.   If you don’t eat so much meat or want to be frugal, you can use lentils to stretch it further or substitute ground turkey and it is still excellent! You need: […] Read more…

Fall House Tour

I had thought about just linking up to last year’s post and adding my new stuff to this one, but last year was about WAAAAY more than just decorating and I wanted to keep it short, sweet & fun.    So here is how I decorate for fall…oh and did I mention that it takes less […] Read more…

Recipe: Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Finished Objects Friday – August edition

Nope, my sewing list hasn’t been worked on at all.   I still haven’t gotten my sewing machine working yet.  I got the thread to stop snapping by replacing the needle (which I’ve never done), but I screwed with the tension before trying that and now I think I have to get that piece working again. […] Read more…

Book Review – Making Waves

Making Waves was a good first novel by Lorna Seilstad.   It’s the story of a spunky young lady in proper society who is thrilled to discover that her family will be spending the summer at Lake Manawa, Iowa in 1895.   She’s been courting a man named Roger who is agonizingly boring and in true modern […] Read more…
