Shake One in the Hay and Spit on It!

It sounds gross, but it’s not! I’ll take one with an extra cherry on top, please! “Shake One in the Hay and Spit on It” is soda jerk lingo for a strawberry shake with raspberries on top. These guys had a slang all their own for calling out orders. Soda fountains had handbooks of recipes… Continue reading Shake One in the Hay and Spit on It!

Coffee With CLASS!

I’ve enjoyed coffee for as long as I can remember. My grandparents spoiled us rotten when we were children. Memaw would wake up early and put the kettle on while she cooked bacon for breakfast. She’d have the Corelle coffee cups and saucers ready, with a few teaspoons of Folger’s crystals in the bottom, and… Continue reading Coffee With CLASS!

“Off the Cuff” Art Journal

I have done something I’ve never done before…winged it making a video tutorial! I needed a new art journal and this idea blossomed after I saw Johanna Clough’s journal video and Club Scrap‘s Card Keeper tutorial.

What does the fox say?

Google searches are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get! I searched for a quote to go with this Sleepy Fox digital image from All Dressed Up Stamps. I found a sweet quote, “Stay clever, little fox”. I’d never heard it before, so I searched for the origin of it… Continue reading What does the fox say?

If it’s too Loud, You’re too Old!

I love the surge of endorphins after a good workout! My body is relaxed; I can breathe a sigh of relief after a long day and just be. Music is essential to my workouts. When listening to music, people run farther, bike longer and swim faster than usual—often without realizing it. I put a lot… Continue reading If it’s too Loud, You’re too Old!
