Having Some Fun With Green

Beyond the food, I'm not one that does a lot specifically for St Patrick's Day. But I do have a couple of fun things I've done over the years, and thought you'd like to revisit some and see what is going on this year. It is the one day I bring out my Irish Coffee …

Springtime Table and More

Spring is still almost a week away, officially, but the warmer days seem to be here. Time for a springtime table to brighten up meal time. I looked in my stash of quilts and realized I have very little in the way of square table toppers. Mostly I make longer runners for the larger table …
