Well, we did it! We went and had our first debut into the big wide business world of pretties and cutesy little things! Thanks for all the sweet words and comments on the last post. Actually quite a few of the last posts! Sure is a great vote of confidence! :) You all make my day with your comments! Thank you all! Back to My Faire Lady… As usual, I only took a couple hundred pictures. :/ So to try to… Read more »

My online time the couple of months has been greatly limited, due to a three main things. 1. The daily joys and challenges of being a wife, mother, household-keeper, laundress, chef, grounds-keeper, teacher-of-how-children-should-get-along [to one’s own children]… 2. The weekly involvement in a Bible Study with four girls from our church’s youth group. I LOVE LOVE this… even though finding the time to studying amidst #1 can be challenging some weeks. 3.

That’s given me time to work on some projects, get the main decor up in the house, and F.I.N.A.L.L.Y.  put the last of my boxes up in the attic.

  This is for those of you who have seen biscotti pictures on my blog and asked for the recipe. :) There’s no great secret – I just got this recipe online, I think. It takes a little bit of time to make, but oh so worth it! Take it from me – I’m not much of a baker, but I’ve had biscotti on hand almost every single day since November of last year when my friend Bek first sent me… Read more »
