 I am a magazine junkie, and I don't buy them for the articles.  I am in love with those beautiful, glossy images.  I can't resist them, nor can I bear to throw them away.  So years ago I started collecting them in inspiration notebooks.  The two spreads below are mine.


So I love it when I find others with the same condition.  I found this blog this morning.  She uses foam boards....awesome!  It's also a super cool blog!  See her posts here:


Coming to terms with some addictions can be fun!!!

Wow!  What if???? We have a play house left from when our girls were little.  Now it has become a pool house.  But our 3 year old granddaughter has started calling it "my house", making me want to fix it up for her and the next generation of children to enjoy it.  Maybe it should be a place for Grandma too?

Homemade Marshmallows

February 13 2011 077
I had no idea homemade marshmallows were sooooo good!  They are surprisingly easy to make.  This is Martha Stewart's recipe found here: courtesy of Oprah.  I will never buy another bag of marshmallows again!  Happy Valentine's Day!!

What Should I Read Next? Book recommendations from readers like you

I have a book obsession.  And even though my “to read” list will take my lifetime, I can’t help being tempted to look for new books.  So I was delighted to find this site.  I can see my book list growing exponentially!  I hope you find it entertaining/useful as well.

Anticipating Sping

I'm so tired of winter!  Blizzard warnings, 18 below wind chill, I could use some diversion.  Lately I've rekindled my friendship with my bread machine.  Awesome for warming and comforting ourselves.


And I am looking for signs of spring everywhere.

This little guy was outside my kitchen window. 

Another sign of spring: the spring catalog of Toast UK is available on the 7th.

I love their catalog for inspiration.  See the sneak preview here:

I hope you find some little signs of spring as well!
