The girls worked hard yesterday to be able to pull this Bake Sale off in town today. It is lovely out. Just two days ago the low was 3 degrees, the high in the twenties. Today it will be 72 degrees……perfect for a Bake Sale!

I wanted to show you the pictures from yesterday. Our Traditional Family Weekends run into a good amount of funds so we try to have two Bake Sales before each Weekend.

We also try to get the guys together and have an “Epic Duels” Tournament at least once to raise more money. We have a bunch of guys get together with 3 or 4 of the games. They pay a certain amount to participate, we provide the food, they buy the drinks from us. We are able to raise close to $200.00 each time. And it provides a good time for everyone!


If you would like to donate to the “cause” of these Weekends that provide a chance for like-minded Catholics to get together for social and spiritual nourishment, you can click below.

Also, any benefactors will be remembered in our daily rosary here at our household. πŸ™‚


Here is a video that our friend, Ernie Garcia,Β  put together to give you an idea of what we try to do over here (I have posted it before):


Today I want to give to one of you this heirloom-quality, classic necklace set!

This necklace set has sparkling spring colors sprinkled throughout to make a lovely and elegant set, perfect to offset your fresh, spring outfit! The wire I used for this particular set is unique…a braided silver wire. It was a little difficult to work with so you may be the only person wearing a set like this…. πŸ˜€

It is wire wrapped and therefore a set that will last a lifetime!

If you don’t wear jewelry yourself, think about someone you could give it to. πŸ™‚

Please sign up by making a comment! As usual, I always love to hear from you…even if it is just a hi!

We will announce the winner on Valentine’s Day so don’t be late!

I like to think mine is unique because each link is handmade and wrapped around itself (and sometimes running across the bead) providing it with a durability that is unlike other jewelry and rosaries.They are made with time and with love. <3
