New tiny pretties

Tags

, , , ,

My aunt is just the kindest lady. She thought of me when she was going through some old things, and she figured of anyone, I’d love some miniatures!

And she was so right!

This little set is at least forty years old, but I’m not sure where she got it, or how she came across it. I think it’s just adorable, though. I included a quarter so you can see the size.

Isn’t it adorable? โค I couldn’t love it more!

These are the things on my desk while I write. Writing is a very solitary experience. We writers do reach out and try to connect with people, but at the end of the day, it’s just our fingers on the keyboard, and the ideas the fill us up. I do enjoy connecting with readers and other authors on social media, so if you come find me on Facebook, I’m bound to respond. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also have very regular giveaways going on over there! If you don’t see one pinned to the top of my page, give it a day or two… one will pop up. That’s a guarantee.

And if you like a romance about a married couple reuniting, Wife on His Doorstep is for you! It’s got all the feel-good romance you could ask for…
Coming June 2021!
Pre-order it now, and look for it wherever Harlequins are sold!

A dollhouse birdcage!

, , , ,

We have some good friends who sent us a care package, and inside there was the most adorable little dollhouse birdcage for me!

I was just so tickled! You know how much I love adding to my miniature rooms, and this little addition is so cute!

I’m still working on this room… slowly but surely. And since we’re bird people with a parrot of our own, a birdcage is just perfect!

Don’t you think? ๐Ÿ™‚

June is coming up quickly–the month of my THREE releases! I do hope you’ll pick them up!

Wife on his Doorstep

The Preacher’s Daughter

Rocky Mountain Baby

And just a quick note: going forward I will be posting once a week here on my blog, on Mondays. ๐Ÿ™‚

Knitted surprises

Tags

, , , ,

Knitting is turning into an incredibly relaxing hobby. It gives my fingers something to do, and there is just something so satisfying about creating something you can physically hold… and use to scrub the dishes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

This is one of my newest dish cloths that I’m making. I’m not a skilled knitter, but I can make a square, and that’s all I need for these. I loving nothing more lately than hitting the craft store for a new skein of yarn. And this is my newest!

I use these dish cloths in my own kitchen, too! They work so nicely, and I like having some pretty colors at my kitchen sink. You can tell that I chose the peach and green yarn to match with my own kitchen.

I also knit these dish cloths for giveaways. When I say you’ll get a knitted surprise, expect one of these! ๐Ÿ™‚ The wonderful thing about something personally knitted for you is that the person doing the knitting thought about you while she worked on it. And while I knit my dish cloths, unless I’m planning on using it in my own kitchen, I’m thinking about the winner of my next giveaway, and hoping they’ll enjoy it.

Speaking of giveaways, come by my Facebook page to see my latest giveaway with Amy Lillard! I always have a new one pinned to the top of my page. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a great chance to win some free books, AND a knitted surprise!

In the meantime, don’t forget about my newest release, on the shelves now!

I am always so happy when a new box of books arrives on my doorstep! And this book is just so pretty. It will hit the shelves in June, but I’ll be using these copies for some upcoming giveaways on my Facebook page, so keep an eye out for that!

This is the third book in my Redemption’s Amish Legacies miniseries. This book can stand alone, but for those of you who have been following the miniseries, this is Amos’s story with his estranged wife, Miriam, they’ve all learned to dread. But she’s not so bad… but ten years apart sure seems to grow a story. Sometimes, it takes a praying grandmother to get a stubborn couple to recognize that love actually is enough!

***

Can the differences that drove them apartโ€ฆ

ignite a love to make her stay?

When Miriam Lapp arrives unannounced at her estranged husbandโ€™s house, she has no intention of staying. But she canโ€™t walk away when Amosโ€™s ailing grandmother needs a womanโ€™s support. Sheโ€™ll help temporarily, then leave to start her own Amish business. But spending time together makes Miriam and Amos question their past mistakes. Can a once mismatched couple find love ten years later?

But mine isn’t the only Heartwarming book coming out in June, and you can buy all four of them together in one box set!

These are the heartwarming, family-centred stories you already love from Harlequin Heartwarming–a brand you can trust to deliver every single time!

Spring Break!

Tags

, , , , ,

This Spring Break, my husband took some time off of work, and we did a bunch of home renovations as a family. I’d been dying to fix things up a bit, but I tended to get voted down. No one really wanted to do it. So when I marched out to Home Depot and came home with a can of paint, I figured I could paint one wall a weekend, and get it all done myself in a couple of months. Luckily, Mr. Johns thought I was painting wrong, and decided to show me how to do it, which sped the process up considerably. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We really got into it! We painted the entire apartment, including closet doors. We replaced another set of closet doors, and fixed up our kitchen a little, too. We definitely stayed busy, and the end result is just so nice and fresh! Don’t you love crawling into bed at night and smelling that faint, fresh paint smell? Heavenly!

My favourite little addition to our home is actually the cheapest. I bought some faux stained glass removable window film, and not only does it give me that little bit more privacy (because who wants to see me in my bathrobe if I forget to close the blinds?), but I love the colour, too! It just makes me feel happy, and being cooped up as we are in Canada right now with Covid regulations, that little extra bit of cheer inside is necessary.

And that is what we were up to! We’ve spruced up our home, and I’m just so pleased with it!

Here in Alberta, Canada, we are going back into a lockdown now, though, which means we’ll be spending a whole lot more time at home. I’m glad it’s a little cheerier here, because we’ll need it.

Don’t forget about my new releases hitting the shelves soon!

A magazine ad!

Kensington Books is including my June release, THE PREACHER’S DAUGHTER, in an ad in the Mary Jane’s Farm magazine! I’m just thrilled to be included–that ad space is precious. ๐Ÿ™‚

I do hope that you pre-order THE PREACHER’S DAUGHTER now! It’s the second book in my INFAMOUS AMISH miniseries, and I just love this story of an Amish bad boy coming home again, and the daughter of a disgraced minister looking for a second chance at an Amish life.

This book has:

-An Amish bad boy–all muscular, wounded, and willing to do whatever it takes to protect the woman he loves…

Do you really need anything else? ๐Ÿ˜‰

But if you do, it’s got family drama, a sweet, Amish community, roadside vegetable stands, and a thoughtful grandmother who won’t be daunted.
