Another quilt

While my husband was off killing wild animals, I had LOTS of time to sew! An old friend of mine had her first girl after 2 boys. What better way to celebrate than with a pink quilt??

Cranberry Relish

Cranberry relish is one of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes. Its refreshing and so easy to make!


  • 2 pounds fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  •  1 orange, zested and juiced


Place all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor, pulse several times to breakdown the cranberries and incorporate the ingredients; it should still be a bit chunky. Allow the cranberry relish to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes, so the flavors can marry.

Wet Brush

My daughter has very thin, easy tangled, and tender scalp. What that means for me, tears when I brush her hair. I tried about 20 brushes before I found the Wet Brush. 
 This is the BEST brush. I LURVE it so much, I bought one for myself. Its soft, doesnt pull your hair, and tender to your scalp. Since using it, my daughter no longer runs from me when I brush her hair.

Happy Veterans Day

What does Veterans Day mean to you? 

To me, it is a special time to remember our service men and women "living and dead" who for 230 years stood up in defense of this great nation. No matter how you feel about war, please remember to be thankful for those who give their lives everyday for your freedom!

Black Friday

I dont know about you, but I live for Black Friday!! How can you not?? All those deals too good to pass up. For the last 5 years, I've been one of those crazies in line at 4 am waiting for the doors to open. I plan as far in advance as I can for this big day! 
I get help from this little site! This site gets all the ad's BEFORE they come out in the paper. This way you can plan ahead on what you want to buy.

One down

So I finally got around to working on one of my "finds." While it was nothing exciting, I still love the price and how it turned out. 
Here is the before photo of the tissue holder. I paid $3.
 After I painted it with my ORB. It had a design, but I put that side against the wall, no one will ever know. I already had the paint so I think $3 was a great deal!

On my recent trip to Palm Springs, I did a little second hand shopping.
What do you think? Junk?  I love it!!! I cannot wait to work on every piece. My husband just shook his head when I brought it in from the car. I figured, what does he know? He cannot see the greatness in each piece! Stay turned to see how each piece turns out!

Happy Halloween...a little late

Better late than never!! Well here is my cupcake in all its glory...okay not really.
 I had planned on making these for my daughters Fall Festival, but my oven had other ideas. It broke the night before!! :( Oh well, now I have the best oven I've ever owned and probably no more excuses that I cannot cook. Darn! I dyed the mix orange which I thought was a great idea at the time. However it made it a little harder to cover up with the white icing. Note to self for next years festival!!
