Grateful for happy accidents like this one! Windows into the blogosphere: Cake Take Flight Heart To Heart Windows Magical Windows Reflection … Continue reading Window View
I recently took a walk on a bright, warm and sunny, fall afternoon. To me the colors of fall in New England are "Magic"! But this one, once I made some changes with the Pixlr app, looked just as magical as anything I'd snapped in color. It's Queen Anne's Lace which grows everywhere around me, particularly … Continue reading Fall Magic

I took the picture this past summer when … Continue reading My Cookbook Cover
