Passion equals Purpose

I have always been a 'passionate' person.
I'm passionate about 'every day life'.
Each day brings new 'treasures' to be enjoyed!
 'Making Memories' is our family motto.
And we certainly make the memories around here!

My most prized 'treasure' in life is my family.
 There are so many words to describe this 'crew'!
Funny, creative, loving, rowdy, unique.
Visit our About Us page to meet them.

 The 'Love' of my life.
 This is a pic of 'hubby' taken when we were camping.
He is doing his favorite thing: Cooking!
He is the best cook and baker there is.  No kidding.
I cook out of 'necessity'.  He cooks with passion!
You can visit  our Mom's Country Kitchen page
to see the kind of 'food-prep' I enjoy doing.
Heritage Home~Place Shoppe
We absolutely love our booth space in a local business called
the Iron Horse Primitives.
There are over 20 vendors called the Country Cottage Chics
that sell their treasures!  We love being a part of this group of
creative people.  Visit our Heritage Home~Place Shoppe page.
We will open an online Etsy shop in January 2014!

 We host a monthly gathering of like-minded women who are eager
to learn about health and wellness issues.  We have been gathering
since 2005.  It has been a fun and rewarding few years.
Visit our Health and Wellness page.  If you live locally,
we invite you to join us!

I'm a true 'Junker' at Heart!
If it's rusty, banged-up, chipped...I love it!
I am passionate about taking old (good) junk and re-creating
a piece of art for indoor and outdoor decor.
Today's junk is a memory of someone's treasure from the past.
In my way of thinking it should 'live on' making new memories!

Passionately Pink!
This is my daughter, Rebekah.  She got this tattoo in honor of her
grand-mother (my mother) who has been 'Fighting Like a Girl'
for almost three years.  We are passionately pink for the cause.
We have dedicated 100% our business to the cause of raising funds to 'gift'
women who are going through breast cancer treatment.
Read our Passionately Pink page to see how you can be a part 
of this passion.

The heart of human excellence often begins to beat when you discover a pursuit that absorbs you, frees you, challenges you, and gives you a sense of meaning, joy and passion.

As you can see, I am a woman of many passions!  
These few are truly the tip of the iceberg.    
Other Passions include:
Vintage Campers ~ Dairy Goats ~ Gardening ~ Dancing
Karaoke ~ Wineries ~ Playing the Drums (trying)
Boxer Dogs ~ Chickens ~ Reading ~ Tear Jerking Movies

Living Out Loud!

Passionately Pink Party

Our Holiday Cookie Exchange Party and Fundraiser
was a huge success!
Guests bought tickets to get their name in the 
Gift Basket Drawings.
Several businesses donated gift items for the drawings.
The money will go into our Breast Cancer Fund to be
used for buying Gift Certificates from local businesses.
The Gift Certificates are 'gifted' to local women that are
going through breast cancer treatment.

 Mmmm...the Hot Chocolate Bar!

 Googling for answers to Christmas Trivia questions?!
Is that allowed?
 Whatever it takes to win, right?
Gotta love Google!

 Stickers, Stickers everywhere!
How many stickers can you collect at a Cookie Party!

 Beautiful, Delicious, Creative

 My personal favorite of the party were our two
grand-daughters singing 
'Create in Me a Pure Heart' using sign language!
Precious little 'elves'!

Pink Christmas!

I'm on a pink mission!
Inspired by my mother who is 'Fighting Like a Girl',
I add pink to any holiday throughout the year.
I bought a bag of pink bulbs from a consignment shop and
of course since I'm a modpodge freak, I had to glitze the pink
bulbs up with modpodge and glass glitter!
Add some 'foo-foo' and some cute tags from
and voila, beautiful Christmas gifts!

 My next mod-podge project are these beautiful
glass wine glasses and small vases.
These are Thank You gifts that will be given
to donators to our Breast Cancer Fund.
I filled them with candy and added a tag.
The wine glasses will also make a great tea lite!

Pink Peppermint Sticks!
Added to a gift tag, they make great party favors!

There's no end to all of the 'cutesy' things to be made in
