Here is a photo I took the other day in my backyard. The beauty of a butterfly...


Here is a picture of the tab bag! From howto.com

Things to Make:

A handbag made from can tabs! There is an endless supply at Landshark I already could have!

Trying to figure out a way to make/improve my onion bag clutches. I have quite a collection and would love to add a new addition to the bags I already make! Now to figure out the best shape, size, strap and decoration. So much thought goes into creating new things! Hope I can sleep tonight.

Has anyone done this before?

Good Morning Husband.

I made my husband one of his favorites for breakfast this morning. Sour cream coffee cake, and this time I added fresh blueberries to the top layer. Holy scrumptious!!!

Check it out!

The end result! (we'll start backwards since I am still getting used to Blogger)
After I added the crumb mixture on the top, right before it when in the oven.

The top before the crumb mixture:

The crumb mixture:

Just ate my first piece and it is so moist and yummy. Truly a perfect match with coffee. Let me know if you'd like my recipe! Sour cream makes this cake yummyyyyyy. It's makes my husband smile that beautiful smile of his.

This one's for my sister:

"you remember where I've been, respect who I've become, and encourage me where I'm going"

Random Mondays

Here's a picture of Sid fishing in Maine.

I just stubbled upon this interesting site/company. Check it out here:

I like their slogon, "Fashion with respect for people and planet". WORD!

Today has flown by. Meeting at work, which always last hours, then I went to Books a Million which I try to avoid simply because I can easily get lost amoung those books for hours and hours. I managed to get in and out within an hour! Afterwards I went and picked Sid up at home and brought him to the beach for a walk. He LOVED it. Was running, tongue hanging out. Even ran into the water! I need to bring him more often, it was so cute to see him so happy. And it felt so good to walk in the early evening.

Now to make a sour cream coffee cake as a surprise for my husband who has been stuck at work since we got back from vacation. And dinner.

Time to get stuff done... and I think my washing machine died.
