Anyone who knows me well, knows I NEVER make “just enough” food for dinner. When I make chicken soup, you would think I planned to feed the villagers… and, in fact, sometimes I do 🙂 But here is my philosophy… it really doesn’t take that much more time to makeRead More →

The gnome home is finally all decked out for Spring and our wee ones have been busy on adventures with our friends that dwell there. We thought we’d take you on a tour, floor by floor. (BTW… we are in the process making several ladders and an elevator to makeRead More →
