A few weeks ago my youngest son brought home this wood office chair. One of the guys where he works brought it to work to throw in the dumpster.  No one knows me better than my son, he loves Goodwill, Flea Markets, Antique stores as much as I do. He sent me text with the…

Whisk Broom Valance

People rarely use whisk brooms anymore, when I was growing up in the 60’s it was the only way we swept the dirt out of car! Since changing my decor to a more primitive look (not that growing up in the 60’s makes me primitive) I notice a lot of whisk brooms in the decor.…

Caramel Heavenlies

It’s the Saturday before Christmas and I’m just now doing some of my cookie baking!  I almost didn’t bake any cookies, just because I know I’ll eat them if they are in the house and I don’t want to put on any more weight!! Can anyone relate with me?  However, Christmas only comes once a…
