Let's Play Catch Up....

The Bunny has come and gone.
Company has come and gone.
While my SIL was here we made homemade hand lotion.
Purchased everything at the Dollar General for approximately $5.75.
You need just 3 simple ingredients.
Baby Lotion-Vitamin E cream-Vaseline

Click on Photo to see how easy it is to make!
Great Mother's Day or Teacher gift.

This new recipe was a hit.
Served it with Baked Ziti and a salad.

Very easy and quick to make and tasted like those delicious biscuits
served at Red Lobster.
Again, click on the photo for the link.
Both recipes came from Pinterest......of course.

 I just finished a great book.
If you love historial novels like I do you won't be disappointed.

The Dressmaker
"Just in time for the centennial anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic
 comes a vivid, romantic, and relentlessly compelling historical novel
about a spirited young woman who survives the disaster
only to find herself embroiled in the media frenzy left in the wake of the tragedy".

Took a road trip this past weekend to Kalona IA.
What a wonderful group. So much knowledge.
The program was on the works and life of Ruby Short MccKim.
