I Am On a Break

I will be visiting family for two weeks...some time in Bass Lake and some near Lassen park. We have never been to Lassen so that will be interesting and fun.
My sister and her husband bought a real log cabin just south of Lassen in the town of Viola. She has had lots of snow at 4500ft....but now summer is there (which is good because I don't do snow)...
Check back soon...I'm not leaving....just taking a break....

And I get to go swimming!! I love lakes! So much water to play in!....Love, Molly

That was an "Ah ha" moment.....
Except that around here, Rub n Buff seems to only come in gold, brass and patina....not what I was looking for.......
So, I went online and happily I found, Rub n Buff comes in a multitude of colors! Now, they don't have Oil Rubbed Bronze (that's too easy), but they had Ebony (black) which most closely resembles our Bronze color, as it is the darker one.....
So, I experimented on an inside door handle that was very brassy....
And although I am not going to show you the …

New Year's Resolutions....

Do you make resolutions??
What are they??
I am thinking about a few...
I want to clean the garage out...

Lessons We Learn as We Get Older....

I was raised by a Mother from New York. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas had to be perfect, the proper plates, glasses, silverware etc at the main meal. I grew up believing that is THE way to do it. But guess what? I discovered this year it isn't. A relaxed hostess, makes a relaxed atmosphere.
Yup, I had decided this year to get as much done ahead as possible, so when guests arrived I could enjoy them. I had heard such advice from people like Ina Gartner the famous cook who has written dozens of books. But never really put it in place, until yesterday.
It's really true...if you are relaxed and happy so will those who enter your home...
This year I went with really big dinner plates (they were from a thrift store...big Crate and Barrel plates) and simple place settings. I had a dinner fork, knife and spoon.
