Authentic or Faux — My Forsythia Struts Its Stuff

Igot so excited when I rounded the house this weekend to find my forsythia bush blooming! I immediately cut several stems to take the place of the faux flowers I wrote about only days before on my post “Five Tips for Displaying Faux Flowers.”

This cheery card is a perfect way to brighten someone's day. . . complete with a little shaker surprise!

Country Cuteness from Mom’s Garage

I took an old canning jar, a partial can of off-white spray paint, twine and twigs and quickly whipped up a cute little country-style home decor.

    The Makings of a Berry Good Garden

    I picked fresh strawberries from the garden this week! Okay, so I kind of cheated, but I did pick them and they were growing in my garden. Never mind that my husband bought mature plants full of unripened fruit. I just had to stick them in the ground and watch them turn from a ghostly shade of white to a delicious deep red.

    Summertime Tomato Cucumber Salad

    Today was the last full day of summer for this crazy year, and we have been enjoying the final fruits (or vegetables as it were) of our petite backyard garden. One of my favorite fresh summertime meals is a cucumber tomato salad. Usually I just thrown in a bit of this and a dash of that and call it good, but this time I wrote it down just so I could share the recipe with my readers, and of course, save it for myself.

    Green Beans, Goulash & My Garden

    My son and I are making a quick weekend visit to my hometown for my great niece's high school graduation (which is finally happening), and after several hours on the road it's always nice to sit down to a delicious home cooked meal. Mom whipped up a huge batch of very cheesy goulash for the three of us, but I supplied the tasty side -- fresh green beans.
