My family loves these special Grammy's Peanut Butter Kissy cookies...My grandmother passed this recipe along to my mom so from my family to yours I hope it becomes a tradition for you...
My Mom brought tears to my eyes as she said this recipe always reminds her of how much she misses my Dad because he always would unwrap the chocolate kisses for her and when she wasn’t looking he would eat them..she said she would look in the bowl and notice some missing so she always kept an extra bag for a spare...
Holidays can do that to you...I hope you can remember your special memories too!

For 21 years, I have had the fun of shopping and pleasure to share the Shoe of the Day on QVC! I have always looked at these special shoes and boots with a special fondness over the years..but it was not until a few weeks before Christmas two years ago that I really understood breast cancer.
My younger sister Karen was diagnosed with a type of breast cancer that would have previously been a fatal diagnosis for women. My sister has four beautiful children and a husband who she was not ready to leave. She was blessed to find an amazing doctor and after radical surgery an... Continue Reading

I love to decorate for every season! Here is my, "Welcome to my Home" Fall Blog showcasing my outside decorations.
My sister Deb made me the wreath for my front door to welcome my friends and family... I love the ornamental millet which I think is a fancy name for Indian corn which I added to a cheese pumpkin and gourds from my garden...P.S. spray your pumpkins with the blue stuff to keep the hungry squirrels from munching on them..
I always have lots of help from Catdog every time I decorate.. Obviously she can't read the Danger Haunted House sign..
Our skeleton just ... Continue Reading
