New Daring Pinks With Black Collection


Oh Nuts!

I love nuts! (ok that didn't sound right) but I am sure you know what I mean. LOL. I love cashews, walnuts, especially around the holidays and peanuts. Nuts have gotten a bad wrap about being loaded with fat but just think what they can do for your heart and lowering your cholesterol.

Nuts and your heart: Eating nuts for heart health

Eating nuts helps your heart. Discover how walnuts, almonds and other nuts help lower your cholesterol when eaten as part of a balanced diet.

Eating nuts as part of a healthy diet can be good for your heart. Nuts, which contain unsaturated fatty acids and other nutrients, are a great snack food, too. They're inexpensive, easy to store and easy to take with you to work or school.

New Item

New Botanical Spa Body Lotion.

It is a unique blend of fine oils such as jojoba oils, soybean oil, cocoa butter, lanolin, and a blend of botanical extracts. It will leave you skin soft and silky without the greasy feeling of most lotions and with the up coming dry winter weather season this will be the perfect lotion.

This lotion comes in a elegant solid white 8 oz bottle with a silver hand pump for easy dispensing. Great to give for special occasions or for the upcoming holiday season..

I will have more scents available soon. You can find these lotions at Etsy, Artfire and website

Potato Sausage Soup

This is the original photo of the soup that I got off my crockpot apps. Check the bottom of the page for a photo of my Potato Soup. And yup I am at it again.

I made it yesterday afternoon so it didn't get done til late last night about 8:30 pm. I gave it a little taste and it was fantastic. I love potatoes and this was the perfect recipe. Very easy and it made a lot. I have to say I had some for lunch today and it taste even better the second day. Why is that? LOL
