Blue and white place card
This blue and white place card was done for a setting where I wanted to pop more color into my table scape.

With white linens and napkins I need just a pop more blue and this blue and white place card was perfect.

It matches a lot of my blue and white collection without me having to add to it.

It is an easy PDF to download.

blue and white tablescape
This is a  blue and white tablescape for a dinner for six. We were in between holidays (Canadian Thanksgiving is in October) and I was not yet ready to start with the Christmas decorating.

Blue and white is one of my favorite color combinations and I find that you can use it year round. 

It looks fresh in the summer and warm in the winter.
You can also mix it with both gold or silver.

dutch pea soup recipeDutch pea soup is warm hearty fall favorite of mine.

With simple ingredients you can make a soup that will rival anything that has ever come out of a fine restaurant.

It does take some preparation and time to simmer but it is well worth it.

One of our favorite meals when the weather turns cold is this soup with cold cuts on a good quality bread.

Dutch Pea Soup, great for when you want a warm hearty meal.

Kitty Cat Hand Warmers to Make
A few years back I designed some Hot Dog- Hand-Warmers and have been asked on a few occasions if I would design cats.

So here are my Kitty Cat Hand-Warmers, sure to make you purr.

They are wonderful to have in your pockets on a cold day and are small enough that they don't take up a lot of room.

Hot Dog hand warmers to make
These are great fabric stash busters. You could even sew them up in colors that match your own feline.

Think about having a basket of both the dog and cat hand warmers by your front door. 

These make great stocking stuffers and handmade gifts for friends and family.

Halloween bat place card
Tonight is All Hallow's Eve and I made these Bat Place Cards for our dinner table.

Bat became part of Halloween because people thought that they were vampires in disguise.

This image was taken from a antique book of animals. 

I don't want my Halloween to be too scary so the bat place cards are spooky enough without going over the top.

Things that go bump in the night signI like putting little Halloween decorations all over the house. I thought I would put this sign in the guest bedroom (not really).

This spooky little Halloween sign would look great on an entryway table or a desk.

I have heard all different versions of this Scottish prayer and this is the one that my sisters use to say around Halloween time.

"May the Lord protect you from ghosties and ghoulies and long legged beasties and things that go bump in the night", always managed to send a few gentle shivers down my back.
