Thrift Store Treasure ~ Plates
Over the years I have blogged about my thrift store finds here and there. Years and years ago, when Mr. TRH and I were newly married we couldn't afford much. Out of necessity (and it was fun to find things at such a cheap price too!) I shopped at thrift s...

Yummy Shrimp Alfredo
I love to cook, but do I "LOVE" cooking enough that I will still enjoy it if that is my job? Probably not. That being said, I love trying out new recipes, but it is so frustrating and discouraging if it seems like a good recipe turns out not so good. That i...

Story
Introduction
I am happily married with three beautiful children. The life is good but ever since I was a little girl I always wanted to become a designer. About five years ago I started a stitchery design company 'Just A Stitch Away' and I also sell little girls hair accesseries, aprons, and bags under another name 'Tea Rose Company'. The business is so small that I call it a "Micro business". I love the time I get to design and create; it is such a treat! Aside from my businesses, I love to cook, interior design, quilting, art, and any other craft related activity. I will use this blog to share my creations, thoughts, and fun things I do around the home. Please feel free to leave your comments, I would love to hear from you all!
