Kelly has given her opinion of why she is voting for Trump and I agree with her. This is a good read.

Yes, I am tired of the snow. Yes, I know that there is nothing I can do to make it warm. So I saw this tutorial on making the following wreath. It looked so pretty and Springy! And it looks pretty easy. I can cut cardstock and twist them. So I will be making this wreath and hanging it on my front door. How about you?
The tutorial is on Love Pomegranate House site.
I was asked to only have one picture of the wreath on my blog with a link to the originator’s site. Her blog is copyrighted. I was under the impression that I could put the post as long as I had the link to the original site. Sorry for any inconvenience.

I went to the baby shower yesterday and had just the best time! The food was so tasty! The company was so cordial. The Mommy-to-be was just so happy and excited that she was going to have a baby.
So I was looking on the internet this morning and found this recipe. It is the
Helen Corbitt’s Chicken Salad. Famed Texas cook, Helen Corbitt, created this rich chicken salad for the café menu at Neiman Marcus department stores in the 1950s. How about that! I printed it down and plan to make it – how about you?
This recipe was posted on the Saveur site.
MAKES ABOUT 6 CUPS
1 lb. cooked chicken breasts, cut
into ½″ cubes
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1 cup halved purple grapes
½ cup sliced almonds, toasted
1 tbsp. finely chopped parsley
1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
½ cup whipped cream
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
This is the 2nd baby shower gift that I made. It is a baby’s hat. My model is the only baby doll I have in my house. I used some really thick yarn that I got at Joann’s Fabrics. It is really soft and colorful. I think that the hat may be a little large for a newborn so I may make another one with thinner yarn.
The pattern was fairly easy and here is the link Redheart Free Patterns. Like I said the only model that I could use was a doll that I had for the grandchildren. Of course the doll is old and does not have any clothes. So here is the hat:
I turned the end up and am thinking of putting a flower on the top. I also added a border on the end. So what do you think?
Yes!!! I plan to make this recipe this weekend!! I just can’t wait!! I love red velvet!! I love cream cheese!! And I love brownies!!!
I saw this on Pinterest and went to the website that had the recipe: Honey What’s Cooking
