Homemade Valentine's Cookies

Hello there!  Happy Valentine's Day again!  I hope you don't mind if a share this post from my archives with you today.  It seemed apropos being Valentine's Day and all.  I made these cookies years ago when I first started blogging and thought they were sooo pretty but, most of you never saw the post.  So, I thought I would share it one more time.  And, for the record, these cookies are delicious!  Especially if you enjoy thick, sweet frosting like I do!  Don't you just love the cookie below and to the left with the small  heart stenciled on it ?  It looks like the heart is bleeding.  I just noticed that!  Haha!

Valentine Suggestions and Vignettes!

Happy Valentine's Day, Everybody!  I am just dropping by to share a few Valentine vignettes one more time and, perhaps, share a few ideas for celebrating the holiday if you are totally stumped for what to do.


Cornstarch Ornaments: A New Valentine Craft...For Me!


Hi, All!  I am so glad you stopped by!  Every Valentine's Day, I look forward to finding something new to enhance the holiday: be it a new craft, new yummy recipe or a new decoration.  This year, my discovery has been in these really fun homemade cornstarch ornaments.

The Kindness of Others and Aunt Barbara's Potato Plus Casserole Recipe

Hello there!  I can't believe January is already done and we are moving quickly into February.  As many of you know, January has been a very busy month for me and my family with the birth of two new grandbabies!  What I haven't told you is that one day before the first new grandbaby was born my granddaughter, Stella, had a frightful fall while skiing in New Hampshire.  We experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, all in a few days in the same week.  Thankfully and miraculously, although still in pain with broken ribs and a broken vertebrae, my granddaughter will fully recover.  Without getting into detail to protect her privacy, we are thankful beyond belief that the accident did not result in permanent damage and that, eventually, she will be totally fine.



Taking a Wintry Walk in a Wild Life Sanctuary

Welcome, all!  I am trying to get back into the swing of things after the excitement of the births of my two newest grand babies a few weeks ago.  I have to admit that is a hard thing to do but, I am trying, nonetheless.  I won't go on and on about the babies but...who am I kidding?  If you'd like to get a glimpse of the babies, you can check them out here ;).

Part of getting "back into the swing of things" is to start blogging again and reconnecting with all of you. Today, I thought it would be fun to tell you about a cool wild life sanctuary we have right here in my town of Groton. I discovered it last year after living here for more years than I would like to admit.  I am pretty embarrassed about that!



Double Blessings!

Hi, Everyone!  I am dropping in today just for a second to explain why I might be taking a week or two off from blogging.  Last week turned out to be quite a week for my family!  Rather than using too many words, I feel it is best to show you the story in pictures.

First, there came our new grandson, Finn~  He arrived on Monday, weighing 7 lbs. 4 ounces :).

A "Winter Meets Spring" Bouquet

Hi, Everyone!  I wasn't sure if I would be posting much this month or not because my two daughters were due to give birth in January.  Well, guess what!!  One baby has been born!  We welcomed a new grandson into the world on Monday and his name is Finn Thomas (middle name).  Thomas is my husband's name so there are thrills all around!  Mom and baby are doing very, very well and we are so thrilled!
