3 Little Mustard Seeds Giveaway Winner

First I must say that my thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma. You can donate by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Also, if you live in an area that is at risk for tornadoes, visit the Red Cross’ site {here} to read about their free tornado warning app that will alert you when a tornado warning has been issued. It also has a one-touch “I’m Safe” button to let loved ones know that you are okay after a tornado has passed. The Red Cross also has similar apps for hurricanes and earthquakes. In addition to those directly affected by the storm, I always feel for their friends and family who are waiting and wondering if their loved ones are ok so the “I’m Safe” feature of this app is a wonderful idea.

Holiday Gift Guide: Hostess Gifts


Happy Monday friends – how was your Thanksgiving weekend? We didn’t do any traveling this weekend and ended up having a very low-key, relaxing, stay-in-your-PJs-most-of-the-day kind of weekend. I even wimped out on any hard core Black Friday shopping, choosing instead to get a good night’s sleep and just run out for a few things after the doorbuster crowds had cleared. I’m planning to do a lot of my shopping online this year and am banking on some great deals for Cyber Monday.  On my long list of things to buy before Christmas are hostess gifts for our holiday parties. I definitely do my share of grabbing last minute hostess gifts at Target or Pier One but this year I’m planning ahead and buying my gifts on Etsy where many stores are providing discount coupon codes for Cyber Monday. When shopping on Etsy, just be sure to read each shop’s […]

Visitors were so enthusiastic about the large blossoms in my kitchen and […]
