Mary is an educational aide in the classroom next door to mine. She is a lovely lady. When she sees something with my name on it, she always buys it for me and says...'I bet your name is hard to find on personalized items'...

Second from the left is this necklace with natural brown bone beads...they almost look wood grain. A heart shaped bead hangs from copper wire on the right and a leaf is attached to the left. This one is almost 7 " long.
After Jill has indicated her first choice, the rest will be available, either through me directly here, or in my Etsy shop.

While we were driving we saw hundreds...and hundreds of deer along the highway. We stopped three times just to watch them cross the road. This picture is only a small glimpse of how many were scattered in the fields.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
In a large bowl, stir together 2 cups flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/4 cup juice. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour in the reserved juice, egg, milk, and 1/4 cup melted butter. Mix just until blended.
In a separate bowl, stir together the cinnamon, brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and 1/4 cup melted butter to make the topping.
Spoon batter into muffin cups, then spoon crushed pineapple over the batter and sprinkle with the cinnamon topping.
Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the crown of the muffin comes out clean.

Here are the names of blog friends that left comments during the first week of February. I am remembering that when I started my blog in June, that several weeks went by before I received even one comment, and then...when I did... it was just about as exciting as my first Etsy sale! And now, over 100 posts later, I still enjoy reading your comments.
