Local Entreprenuer: Vickie Loftus, Sterling Silver Jewelry

As entrepreneurs, we love to support other entrepreneurs. Our previous neighbor has followed this dream, and started her own business as a Sterling Silver Jewelry Consultant.

Lavender & Lime Tea Recipe

We are often asked for our recipes, and for those dishes that actually have one, we are very willing to share.
