Okay, I know it’s bad -pancakes then waffles in the same week. But my husband said “it is national waffle day” and that didn’t work then he said” it’s leap day” and that worked. “Yes”, I said, “now I will allow you to make waffles”  ;) Why yes it’s is Sadie Hawkin’s day too… They…

Yep this first Tuesday after Mardi Gras is pancake Tuesday! If you missed it this morning it could work for dinner…yum! That is one of those things you either hate or love- a.m. in the p.m. My husband made me one of my favorites this morning- pumpkin pancakes, of course the dogs all got a…

Yep it’s Monday- I’m talking about Tuesday, last Tuesday but it was a good Tuesday! Our Fat Tuesday last week wasn’t so fat but it was delicious.

Some Inspiration!

I was so honored/tickled to have aaaanything to do with what Angela at The Painted House creates. She is kind to give me credit for a teeny tiny suggestion I sent when she was looking for ideas for a chair.  She ended up turning that chair into something amazing, with a Sharpee, seriously. Want some…

Oh boy, how I’m wanting to get out and plant. Even thought we are having great weather the winds here can turn anything to paper in an afternoon. So while I’m waiting I’ve been picking out some things for inside. I need some color! I put together these terrariums awhile ago. So wanted share what…

Watercolor Kit

Hello doing an “organized” link up with Gussy today. You have to go and look, there are great ideas! I do like to organized things as much as I like to pull things out and make a mess, seriously I like both. I’ve got 3 watercolor kits (I’m thinking of a 4th right now as…
