A Winter Day At Old Sturbridge Village
















I've been to 
Sturbridge Village
many times in my life but
it's been about 20 years
I think since my last visit.

It was like seeing it for the
 first time again & I enjoyed it 
more at this age than 
ever before.

Such simpler times I
sometimes wish to go 
back to them. 

Take this wonderful
day trip some time
if you can.
It's great any time of 
year.

Mmmmmmmm ..... Homemade Soaps For My Shop !








I've been making my
own soap for a couple
of years now and 
my customers are
lovin' it .

They wiped me out 
during the holidays.
They were buying it up 
as fast as I could make it.

My husband and I
both love it too.
It's so rich and creamy
and the scents are
amazing. I always make 
sure to keep a good size 
bar from each batch I 
make. It always feels
like such a treat 
when we use it. 

I have made so
 many yummy 
scents in the past & who
knows what new scents will 
be calling to me this year.

Guaranteed they 
will be awesome !

My Children


My boy ....
my baby Java
will be 10 yrs.
old in April.
I cannot believe
how time flies. 




It seems like just
a few years ago we
went to pick out our
new baby and 
companion for his
sister
Minnie.


This is Minnie.
She was 5 when I
adopted her & 
now my sweet old girl is 
over 15 years old.

She was black when I 
got her & has slowly
turned gray and has
a little white face. 

Her beautiful smile has
changed due to losing
most of her teeth.


She's my best girlfriend
in the whole world & of
course every day I
tell her and remind her.

I tell her she's my pretty
little princess and I 
try to do all that I can
for her. 
She's starting to need 
a lot of help these days
with so many little things.

As you can see my 
2 children each got fluffy
new beds for Christmas
and also sock monkey
toys.
They've got it pretty good,
they are family.
