I have loved antiques since I was a child. I loved looking at the china, crystal and glassware in my grandmother’s china cabinet. I have several antiques given to me from my grandparents and parents that I cherish. Each one is a reminder of the special memories I have spent with family. I am planning to include some of my pieces in my future oil paintings.
This is my current oil painting that is available for purchase. This painting would make a great addition for your kitchen, dining room or for a gift for a special loved one or friend.
My new oil painting with crystal, peaches and grapes. I hope you enjoy!

I admit it. I have to have my coffee! I am one of those people that drinks coffee first thing in the morning and all day. I can drink coffee right up to bed time and have no trouble sleeping! What do I do when camping? What would I do if the electricity went out and I can’t make my coffee even at home?! I admit, I would be a little upset! Are you like me…do you need/want your coffee? I live in the Midwest of the U.S. and sometimes the weather can get pretty unpredictable! Rain storms in the spring and summer, snow storms with ice in the winter can cause power outages. I like to be prepared!
There are many types of coffee and ways to make coffee at home or camping. if your Here are a few choices that can make your coffee experience a little easier.
• Instant coffee – My choice is Starbucks Via Italian Roast Instant Coffee. It is a dark roast with bold flavors that tastes rich and full without nearly any bitterness. Instant coffee for camping is light weight when camping.
• Boiling Water – A great stove to use for camping or when you are at home and the power goes out is the Coleman Classic Propane Stove . You will need propane for your stove.
This post is about having our wonderful coffee. I will be posting to make your camping, and times when you just want to be prepared for power outages often. Don’t miss updates! Please “Follow” me and get your updates in your e-mail!

I have always loved antiques and vintage. I am fortunate to own many pieces of vintage and antique possessions given to me by my grandparents. I have some beautiful quilts, table clothes, fabrics etc. in my collection. I want to preserve some of the images in the things that I have loved for so many years. This notecard image is from one of the fabrics I have in my collection. I will be adding other images from this particular piece in the near future. I have this listed as a “Thank You” notecard but I will personalize the notecards for you with your name or another greeting in place of the “thank you”. The set of cards I have listed are for a set of ten, but if you would like more, you may contact me and I will give you a special amount just for you! These cards would not only be a great thing to keep for yourself for a special thank you to someone, but would also make a great unique gift for Easter,Mothers Day,birthday or anytime! Wonderful note cards for spring!
