Awhile back I posted a review of Murder, Lies and Cover-Ups by David Gardner where I talked about the importance of fact checking, especially when it comes to the sources making shocking claims about the death of Marilyn Monroe (or anyone else, for that matter). I recently found some very good resources for doing just … Continue reading Marilyn Monroe, Debunking the Myths: Resources
Awhile back I ordered one of Jennifer's amazing candles for my husband for his birthday. The one that he was most excited about when I told him all about Jennifer's work was 221B Baker Street - due to the blend of scents incorporated and because he's a big Sherlock Holmes fan. His birthday gifts ended … Continue reading Flame Noir Candle Co. 221B Baker Street Candle Review

I've been trying to slowly get back into sewing clothes, but it's been difficult because the pain in my arm has been so hard to manage. I thought I … Continue reading Little Homemade Pretty Things
Awhile back I watched This House Possessed, starring Parker Stevenson and Lisa Eilbacher (both of whom are probably best known from The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries tv series, where they played Frank Hardy and Callie Shaw respectively). It was a real kick to watch, especially once I realized these Parker and Lisa were starring in … Continue reading This House Possessed, 1981
