The Winter Moon

"I will always care for you, even if we are not together and even if we are far far away from each other."  This beautiful moon speaks this thought to me!  My hubby and I were apart for about a week due to the passing of an Auntie, and I must admit it was a very lonely time, but it was a great time for reflection. 
It is winter!  It is so still and so very quiet this beautiful night.  The sky unfolds with colors of gray blue and whispers of white clouds.  In the middle of it all, glimmers this beautiful silver winter moon.

Winner of a Beautiful Elliott-Heath Pillow!



I was so very fortunate to win this beautiful Elliott-Heath Pillow from Judith at a Botanic Bleu give away!   You can visit the Elliott-Heath site here and visit Judith's lovely blog above!  There are so many designs to choose from and this sweet Valentine's pillow is one of many examples.  I absolutely love pillows and this one is just beautiful.  It is so very well made in an envelope style. I simply added a pillow form and it is perfect!

A very special thank you to Judith and Heather for making my day!

Vintage Valentines & Chocolate No Bake Cookies

 

I don't know about you, but to me,Valentine's Day and Chocolate just must go together.  I wanted to put a Valentine's day gift together for someone very special before I go back south. Using what was available was a top priority.  No bake cookies are a sweet treat and so very easy to make.

New Year's Eve~Fresh Strawberry Pie


I had a request from our son for strawberry pie.  We have a Farmer's Market very close to our home and they have delicious strawberries.  It is just wonderful to be able to find these luscious berries this time of the year.  I had a pie crust, which was frozen from a previous pie baking adventure and this worked out perfectly as a one crust pie for this strawberry delight.  A frozen purchased crust would also work very well.

Tropical Sherbet Paradise~Old Florida Style


Florida is truly a favorite place.  It is my happy place.  It reminds me of wonderful warm starry nights, even in the middle of winter, and dare I say, Christmas!  Ocean breezes and beautiful bright colors.  Palm trees swaying in the soft breeze and beautiful flowers in all of their vibrant colors.  Palm bark and fronds are quite plentiful.  They fall off of the beautiful swaying palms so gracefully.

On The First Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me...


On the First Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me a partridge in a pear tree!  What better way to start the Christmas season than a watercolor painted pear and birdie.  This was such a fun centerpiece to put together.  A pretty tablecloth, picture frame and painted pear make up this unique table.
