Let me be clear: I do NOT like fruitcake.

However... we live within easy driving distance of a magical bakery! At Assumption Abbey in Ava, Missouri, the Trappist monks are bakers extraodinaire! Made entirely by hand, their rich, slow baked fruitcakes are spiked with rum, marinated fruit and pecans and are absolutely fabulous! The 2 pound cakes are $28 including shipping.

This holiday season you really should treat yourself or a friend!

And, no, I don't get a cut and am not associated in any way with these folks.... except that I and my family love their fruitcakes!

Romance is in the Air!

Over the years I've had the great pleasure of assisting Cupid. I love it! Today Cupid and I :-) are helping a fellow who is active military. This past summer he met a girl... who he says is his world... and he purchased a wonderful necklace for her. He sent along a lovely romantic message to be inclosed in the package.

Whoever thinks that men are not romantic is... well, nuts! Sometimes the enclosure notes are clever; sometimes tender. And some of the most enchanting are poetry.

I love the business I'm in anyway... and this is just icing on the cake!

Last Rose

It's cold here at Bittersweet Ridge! Suddenly we went from very balmy temperatures into the deep freeze. My flowers loved the Indian Summer weather we were having, especially my roses... Alas, their blossoms are gone now!
Out in the studio I've been working on peace and dog jewelry (for World Peace Jewelry and For Love of a Dog). However, I'm getting ready for a new adventure with metal stamping and etching. Winter always seems like a good time for experiments and embarking on new creative journeys. Stay tuned for the fruits of my labor :-)
If you haven't already signed up for our newsletter, do it now! We'll be having some terrific sales before the holidays and I know you don't want to miss out on them and special discounts!
