In 1943, with the United States in the throes of World War II,
Annual Message to the Congress, January 6, 1941
"In the future days which we seek to make secure,
The first is freedom of speech and expression--
The second is freedom of every person
The third is freedom from want, which,
The fourth is freedom from fear, which,
As meaningful today as it was 67 years ago.

Cookies & cranberries.
I'm bringing the ingredients for my
pumpkin crunch and cranberry bars
to bake on Wednesday.
The Cardinal tin (filled with cookies) and salt & pepper shakers
are for our friends Dale & Carol.
They are crazy about the
St Louis Cardinal baseball team.
I mean crazy!
We are so excited to be spending Thanksgiving with
Mike's sister, brother and their families.
It's been toooo long.
I hope your Thanksgiving is filled with love.
Make it a habit to tell people thank you.

My Messy Thrilling Life.
Brin tells a charming story of Lady Kathryn Callaway
and the Cranberry Christmas Glogg.
Hubby and I couldn’t resist making a jar.
Every other day he stirs it up fussing about
how good it smells and wanting to take a taste test.
It looks so festive on my kitchen counter!
Cranberry Nut Bars
(with cream cheese frosting)
recipe for you. Always a big hit.
And my Spiced Cranberries for your
Well, mix it up I did.
To the point of not being able to “see”
the green and red stars.
Waaaay toooo busy.
Sew, what’s a girl to do?
I finished 3 blocks before I saw
the error of my ways.
I’m going to put the 4th block together
this week and make a table runner!
Then, make 2 quilts.
One with red stars, the other with green.
And, of course, I have enough
white & gold 2/½ inch “connector”
squares cut for both.
Or maybe made the center stars red
And border stars green.
Sew many possibilities.....

A few of my favorite things…..
This stained glass lamp is my most prized possession.
My mother, the Christmas before she passed,
bought this lamp for each of us kids.
I’m sure my brother and sister treasure
theirs as much as I do.
This tea set was given to me by my grandmother Violet.
My grandfather gave this to her for their 30th wedding anniversary.
I think it’s the most beautiful thing I own.
I keep it high on the hutch away from little hands.
Here's a few pictures of my booth at The Peddler's Loft.

Hubby has been helping me with my new venture.
Setting up a booth at the Peddler’s Loft, a local gift/coffee shop.

Well, let me tell you, it’s shaping up very nicely, if I do say so myself.
