Welcome to my blog ~For Heart and Home~. Thank you to my dear friend Linda from New York who took the pictures I sent her and made this beautiful banner for me. I visualized what I wanted it to look like and she made it happen. That is my sister and I as youngsters and yes, that is the home I grew up in during the 40's and 50's. Right about now, you are all probably saying, my goodness she is old. I am vintage, just like fine old lace. Thank you also to my good friend Debbi, from Oregon who answered questions non stop while I was trying to navigate the workings of the blog world. What is so wonderful is that friendships can reach across the miles and even tho we have never seen each other in person - through the wonders of the computer, we have developed that bond. Also, a big thank you to my good friend Mona also from New York, who often helps me after I have totally screwed something up on the computer. I feel very Blessed to have you all as my friends. Thank you and I hope everyone enjoys my blog. I know I will.

Sandi's Treasures


Thursday, October 30, 2008


Can you believe it - Halloween 2008 - Wish I could put the brakes on the way these Seasons fly by. There will be lots of little ghosts and goblins out and about. My grand daughter is going as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. We took her to the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Minnesota this past summer and she has taken such an interest in everything Dorothy since then. I will post a picture of her in costume later. Anyway - hope everyone stays safe and remember to check the little one's candies.

Welcome to my Blog - I am hoping you will find my journey down blog lane interesting. My banner is dear to my heart because the two little girls are my sister and I, probably when I was around 3 and my sister was around 6 and yes that is my childhood home. I lived there through the 40's and 50's so that will give you some insight as to my interests , my memories and my era. I hope to talk about many things that have been permanently etched in my being and I think many of you will see yourselves in my musings. I will also try and bring you interesting little anecdotes, some old tried and true recipes, and many topics that have caught my fancy or made me roar with laughter.

I will also bring you a selection of items I have handcrafted, items that I have found and wish to share and many vintage inspired items. My hope is that you will find my blog interesting enough to visit many times, tell your friends, and take a walk down memory lane.
