Home Sweet Home

We just returned from a week visiting family in California.  We had a delightful time but there truly is no place like home!

It is good to get back to our routines.  Back to our familiar comfy bed and waking to the smell of our first cup of coffee in the morning.

Yes, home sweet home.

Betty Crocker and Silverware

Giving my children some more family history today.

When I was a girl Betty Crocker had coupons on their products worth points that could be redeemed for silverware.  My mother had a shoe box full of these coupons and my grandmother came over to babysit us while my mother and father were away one weekend.

Grandma decided she was going to count points and order silverware for my hope chest.  According to grandma, "Your mother will never do anything with these so we are going to get you some silverware."  I always thought that was cute.

Today some 50 years later I set my table with Betty Crocker's My Rose Onieda silverware and I smile thinking of my precious little grandmother who ordered it for me.

So kids, now you know where the silverware I set the table with daily came from and why it is so special to me.
