Bird’s Nest Cookies

To celebrate the holiday, I made these super easy yet delicious butterscotch and chocolate bird’s nest cookies… to add just the perfect amount of tasty crunch, I included caramelized whole almonds… and for a hint of spring colors, peanut M&M eggs on top!



Happy Weekend


Happy Easter Weekend! I hope you enjoy the holiday with family and friends, remembering the hope and joy we have been given… celebrate it with grateful and peaceful hearts, pink, blue, and green pastel colors, with lots of delicious foods, chocolate, and sunshine…
Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for!
{1 Peter 1:3-5}

Here are a some lovely and vibrant colors around my room these days… fresh yellow tulips, a bird cutout Dave got me from the art fair, paintings I made last summer, little essential beauty products, a miniature Bible from Costco, and a few necklaces on display… how do you play with color in your room?

Mixing Masculine and Feminine

In Les Houches Switzerland, I couldn’t help but be captivated by the darling way in which they decorate their houses… by mixing strong masculine dark wood and dainty feminine flowers… and of course, the bakeries and the sweet shops, with marzipan and biscuits in the window… providing just the right amount of temptation to stop and try a few!
