Everybody should have a least one pine cone ornament to dress up their tree! Simple pine cones are a gift from Mother Nature when I consider that I live in the desert Southwest. They’re hard to come by here, not like back East where I spent my first 28 years. There they littered the yard […]

  Yay! I am finally transferring my blog to a self-hosted site, so bear with me (pretty please) while I complete this transition. I’ve got my fingers and toes crossed for a smooth transition, but Murphy’s Law has me a tad bit nervous. (Okay, terrified.) I can’t wait to bring you some new and exciting […]
