A Gift for a Lady!


My new found friend made a not-so-good day turn into a great day for me. As I dragged my tired self home from work, not feeling myself, what was waiting for me? At the top of my landing was a delivery for Lady Estelle. I knew right away what it was and who it was from. I could not wait to get inside my apartment and open it up.
Low and behold! A beautiful pink parasol from Peggy Ann.

It brightened up my day and I will be beholding to her.
 She is a true kindred spirit. May God bless her.

 What a lovely gift and I am blessed to have her as my friend.

Please, go to her website and get to know her.

Have a great day! Lady Estelle

Historic cooking at Hearthside

At Hearthside we will be introducing cooking of the past. I am happy to be portraying the cook for the Mansion.

I have been doing much research in historic cooking in the hearth and on the old wood stove. Our kitchen is not equipped for cooking on the hearth, so I plan to demonstrate for our visitors on food preparation. I am looking to in the future to take a class for historic cooking.
