Digging Out the Old Bread Machine

Recently I came across a fool-proof bread recipe for the bread machine and thought what the heck.  So I dug out the old bread machine from storage and took her for a test drive. Like everyone else, we bought a bread machine back in the day.  And we used it.  Or rather, hub mainly used […]

Cozy Late November Weekend

Checking in on a cozy late November Saturday morning and wondering what you’re doing this weekend. Shopping?  Christmas decorating?  Eating leftovers?

Last Saturday we attended the Veteran’s Day parade and I took some pictures to share with you.  It all started with a flyover […]

Talbots 2023 Holiday Try On

I haven’t entered a store in ages, and I’m trying to get into the holiday spirit of things, so let’s do a Talbots 2023 Holiday Try On and see what they have. Decorating for Christmas one minute before Thanksgiving is over is just wrong.  Unless, of course, you’re already decorated with a beautiful tree and […]

Guest Bedroom Update and the Look for Less

Inspired by Pottery Barn linens and McGee and Co artwork, I gave our guest bedroom an update and got the look for less money. Bedding Pottery Barn’s uber-popular Belgian Flax linen quilt ($300 for a queen quilt and $140 for two standard shams) is the inspiration for the bedspread I found at Walmart.com from My […]
