Sixteen years of living in the deep south led me to discover an abiding love for pickled okra. Now we're in the north again. These yankees don't know what they're missing.

Pistachio cupcakes with pistachio buttercream. Yum. I just used a yellow cake mix and basic buttercream and added pistachio pudding to make them green. Spotted the day before St. Patrick's Day last year here in Oswego. I decided maybe I should work back thr...

Limits Unknown
Here is the last of three prints that I made for my younger boys' room that I promised to share. 8x10 inspired by The Killers and Pendleton Woolen Mills National Parks Blankets. Back at the beginning of the school year we chose The Killers song "Be Still" a...
