An Arizona Centennial tree

one of my favorite places to visit here in Arizona is Prescott. I especially love the old court house. Sometimes they have festivals, farmer’s markets, art shows and holiday events. It’s just a really peaceful place to stop by for a picnic or to hang out under one of the many trees around the Court…

DIY Aspen mini log pumpkins.

“ Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the Autumn tree.” Emily Bronte Been up north spending a little time up at Our Little Red House. Some peace and quiet from the city. I can’t believe all the yellow flowers they have up there everywhere. All you hear are birds and the rustle of…

Arizona adventures…visit to a country museum.

I miss museums. I don’t know if they are open in your area but here in our part of the world they are still closed and have been for almost a year now. I used to do monthly museum visit before the pandemic. What my husband and I called our date days. My children grew…

 Family fun day paper crafts-milk carton barn.

“Every time you sit down to eat…thank a farmer.” Hey everyone. Only two more paper crafts for the summer are left. I can’t believe how fast the summer is going. This craft is a little more complicated but you can simplify it by not adding little barn doors or a hay loft window. Supplies needed-…

Hunting for vintage books

I just love old books, even the smell of them. Like a fragrance from back in time. Shopping for actual books seems…

 An Easter egg hunt in Tuscany and one DIY project- Yarn eggs

It is that time of year again…egg decorating. There are so many beautiful designs out there sometimes it is hard to choose one to try. This reminds me of the time my husband and I were visiting family in Italy one Easter. Our daughter was still a baby but old enough to show interest in…

Tiny gems in an Arizona desert.

“ God will give you the power to have peace in the midst of the storm” Joyce Meyer We got cold weather and rain in January, and along with that came a green desert.Nothing like the weather some of our states are experiencing but cold for Arizona weather, at least for awhile. I hope everyone…

Repost-Road trip time

Had to check up on the little red house for the day and as always it was a beautiful drive. How blessed the people are that get to live here. It is what I imagine living in a postcard would feel like. Went to visit the town pond, at least that is what I call…

A day in Prescott Arizona…part two.

  Our road trip was coming to an end so before it got too late and that warm sun left (remember we are from Phoenix) we headed to our favorite place for a take out lunch…to Lynx Lake. When my husband and I first started dating, he was 19 and I had just turned 18,…
