  I dug the remainder of my purple potatoes last weekend. The vines had all died and all but disappeared, so I figured it was long past time. The potatoes were on the small side, but I don’t know whether that was because purple potatoes don’t get huge or because mine … more

Online Consignment Shopping

You all know I love a good consignment store.  What do I love even more? Finding one online! Don't get me wrong, shopping local is GREAT and should be encouraged, but sometimes life just gets in the way and shopping gets put waaaaaaay on my back burner. Then I stare at my clothes … more
