Things to be Aware of when Maintaining your Home

Thanks, Safewise, for providing this sponsored post. Things to be Aware of when Maintaining your Home Like anything else, houses take a lot of punishment over the time. Some of the things can be easily noticed while others have to be inspected thoroughly. Occasionally, there are parts of your home that are constantly getting damaged […]

Dress Like Kate Middleton

Have you read that William and Kate — and possibly the kids, too — will be visiting Canada next month? I can hardly wait to see the photos that come out of that trip! Let’s take a closer look at Kate’s impeccable fashion sense. Dress Like Kate Middleton She may be a Duchess, but Catherine […]

Melania Trump Recipes: Apple Napoleons

Melania Trump Recipes — an unlikely search, because, I’m doubting that a woman of Melania Trump’s net worth does much cooking. If you were worth billions, would you? Sure, I might drop in with an occasional menu plan Monday, but that’s a task I’d be quite happy to delegate to those more talented than I. […]

Little Tales: Fisher Price Little People Farm

Of all the vintage Fisher Price Little People toys out there, surely the farm is one of the most iconic. Fisher Price Little People Farm Here’s mine; I played with it for years, then my three girls played with it, and it’s still in pretty good shape. Here’s a brown horse, inside the barn enjoying […]

Feisty & Feminine: Review

**Thanks BookLook Bloggers for a review copy of this book. If you’re a conservative woman, or a Christian woman, or (heaven forbid!) both, you’ve been there: you’re participating in a group conversation at a party, or even perhaps on Facebook.

I began making paper scrapbooks when my oldest daughter was born, 19 years ago (no, I can’t believe that number …). Every so often, I’d drag out my supplies and my photo albums and start cropping, matting, and […]

Chick-Fil-A Salad Container Upcycling

One of my favorite online partnerships is with Chick-fil-A. I love the company’s friendliness and its Christian values. Oh, and its food is pretty good as well 🙂 Recently, the Chick-fil-A moms group I’m part of issued a challenge: take a used, washed, Chick-fil-A salad container, and use it for something else. Chick-fil-A salads are […]

Menu Plan Monday 5/16/2016

Welcome to another menu plan Monday! We’re having unusual spring weather here in the midwest — freeze warnings overnight 🙁 and several inches of rain in the last week. I’m hoping the coming weeks will bring some heat and drying for the sake of my plants outside. My annual spring recital was held over the […]

Play the Piano in One Day

Play the Piano in One Day … hmmm. Is it possible? The answer is yes, according to an ad from the 1948 vintage comic book “Gangsters Can’t Win” (I recently sold several old comic books that had belonged to my mother-in-law, but I couldn’t resist paging through them first). The first thing that amused me […]
