A Story Of Giving

by Destri on September 3, 2010

I have a little story that I was honored to share over on the fabulous Giver’s Log today. It’s a story I took for granted until Amber asked me to share it, and in the process of writing I had a chance to get to know my Grandpa. I hope you have a chance to go read it. My Grandpa even shared his recipe for Mustard Pickles, and I included a jar label…and a few I think should go on my Grandpa’s preserves.

If you have never been to the Giver’s Log, you’re in for a treat, it is a favorite of mine.  Amber has an infectious personality that is impossible not to love, and is never short on inspiration.  She always has fun things going on,  everyday is filled with goodness.  This is one you want to subscribe to folks!

Speaking of goodness, we have a lot of it coming up here on TMH.  A series that we would love your participation in, and a few other little surprises.

Don’t forget you have till the 13th of September to enter a refashioned flip flop for a chance to win the $100 dollar gift card to Roberts Arts & CraftsHere are the rules, and you can link your flip flops here.

Thanks to you and your amazing Grandpa for making an appearance on my blog. He is one impressive guy, and clearly amazingness runs in the family.

What a darling man! My father-in-law used to make cantalope/pineapple jam and he’d take jars of it to restaurants and pass it out to people at the tables close to him. I can’t wait to try these pickles!
