Soups For A Rainy Day Plus Hoarding Update!

Looking back into the archives for a few soup recipes. These rainy days bring that to mind soup and sandwiches.  An added plus is that you can throw them together and let them simmer all day in crock pot if you have more important things to do such as looking at craft magazines for your next adventure.

Dirty Little Hoarding I Mean "Collecting" Shed

What do you do when you downsize.
You build a smaller home only take from older larger home what you think you will use.
Well you would think that is what one would do.

When Dolly Met Victor

This was a few years back and it was during Sun Fun at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I love our beach! We are so lucky to live within a short distance from our shores. This was held as a part of that festival at Market Commons.
Today I share with you my meeting Eric Braeden from The Young & The Restless and numerous other shows.

Family, Rat Patrol and Soap Operas : Part One

Today my post is about memories as a young girl watching television with my family. It would start off with a black and white set of course because in those days that is how it was.

Nancy In Character

Straight from the pages of
"Carolina Rain" and "Beyond Sandy Ridge"

Nancy says, " I don't just believe in God. I KNOW him. I have seen him, he talks to me and he comforts me in times of need. I have worked hard, but it was God that gave me the strength, the determination and the talents. Everything that I am, or will be, it is by his grace I have received. If you think this is old fashion, so be it."

 Vernon Brewer (Nancy's husband) on the left and General Lee on the right.
Can be believe the resemblance?  It is amazing.

Nancy I want to thank you for sharing your talent and wonderful photographs with us, and I can't wait to read your books.
