FABULOUS MARY FRIDAY

This Christmas story is about a woman, my grandmother, Mary Rustine Transue. For the purpose of this story, I will refer to her as Mary. However, she lives in my heart, as Memmy.

WELCOME WREATH WEDNESDAY

Today, was a beautiful day! First, I enjoyed a lovely luncheon with forty loving, generous women. Each one is a beautiful quilter. Later, I had the privilege of sharing dinner with ten great women who make up the Washington Township Ladies Auxiliary. I am part of both of these unique groups. However, delicious food, wonderful conversations, and sweet ladies are […]

I love them all, and I can say that with 100 percent certainty.   Today when I was driving down my street, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer came on […]

As I looked around at the twenty artificial trees of different sizes, totes of Christmas decorations, many angels, silk holiday flowers, and oh yes, I cannot forget the mountains of wreaths […]
