  1. I love how you did it in red and green. I might have to steal that idea. :) I'm sorry to hear about the bonuses being cut. That seems to be going on everywhere. Will your sister make a ham?

  2. You got to LIVE in Lincoln City!!!!! You lucky duck.
    I was raised in Salem and Dad would drive us over to the coast several times a year to spend a Sunday afternoon.
    I always thought that the people who lived there were the luckiest people in the world.


I'm so happy that you visited my little blog! Thank you for the lovely comment and have a superb day!!
