I'm finally sharing the room in which I spend most of my time....well, the time when my eyes are open anyway.

I've been a fan of Mod Podge for a very long time. I'm not kidding, I think that I bought my first jar back in the early 1990's. Yes, you read that correctly, that long ago! I recently had the chance to try their new Photo Transfer Medium and today, I'm going to share what I learned. There is a little bit of a learning curve but it's really easy to use and the results are beautiful. What's even better is that you can use it on everything from wood to fabric to canvas...even glass!

Poor St. Patrick's Day. As holidays go, you're pretty unlucky. In fact, no matter what they say about the "luck of the Irish", you really didn't choose a very good time of year to celebrate.

Dear Thistlewood Chalkboard Wall Calender,
You big hunk (of amazing roadside rescue "junk"), I adore you. I want you. No, wait, I need you in my life.

Can I just tell you that there's nothing like fracturing my wrist to make me want to reupholster furniture...
...no, really, I mean it.

This year, I'm sending Valentine's Day dinner to my oldest and a few of his friends at college. I needed a dessert recipe that could be transported for 3 hours in a cooler without a lot of trouble. That meant that my usual "go to" recipe for Crème Brûlée was out of the question.

When I woke up this morning, it was four degrees Fahrenheit...before the wind.... and I live the suburbs of the "windy city" so you can imagine how cold it was. Our furnace ran continuously through the night and it was still chilly in the kitchen this morning. Baking anything seemed like a good idea. Baking bread that didn't require leaving home for ingredients seemed like a great one.
