  5. Do It Yourself: Nut & Candy Cups

    When I was a little girl, my mom would set wonderful tables for my birthday parties. I remember walking into the kitchen and being so enchanted by the beautiful scene she had created: streamers and balloons were hung from the ceiling, treat bags were arranged and marked with my guests’ names, and each place was set with tableware to match the theme I had chosen. And, of course, there were always little paper soufflé cups (Usually filled with candy, though, not nuts!) nestled in next to each plate. I have been remembering those...

  9. What an Eye Catcher!! - Purse Manicure Sets

    A funny thing happened to me in the food court.  HA!  If that’s not an attention-grabbing first sentence, I don’t know what is!   Actually, I don’t know for sure when it happened, but at some point while I was shopping in the mall, I caught the fingernail on my index finger on something that made it get all annoying and jaggedy.  (‘Jaggedy’ is a new word I just made up.)  So I was irritated because I’d tried nibbling on it to smooth it—you know how you do that—and it hadn’t...
