Bringing Out The Holly.

Warmth - Joy - Happiness:

May these all be yours during the holidays and in the comining year.

Lot’s of hustle going on one at Getting-Into-truffle. I would like to invite you to follow me as I turn our home into a winter wonderland - mostly traditions from my chest of treasures; but a few “new” items and fun, festive ideas. Happy Holidays!

The first look at our skinny tree ---

(Note: Please don’t let Mr. Truffle know what I’m up to. I’m on “medical” and he doesn’t know that I’m still working!)

Michigan Fall


No doubt about it, fall is here. I was lucky enough to get out for a short errand and it was a beautiful day. Please take a look and let me know what you think.

Be sure to stick around, shortly the Halloween decorations will be out.

A Cancelation At Gotta Scrap Inn Manchester, Michigan.

Another Visit to Gotta Scrap Inn.

What a great weekend; creating, indulging in culinary specials, spa services and the best girlfriend time (therapy) ever!

I’m a house-wise housewife who loves a great escape. I want to thank Amy who makes all of this possible. Her attention to detail and talent for hospitality made for a wonderful time. Rhonda, the new chef at the Inn, but certainly not new to award winning meals is amazing. But I’m saving the best for last…….thank you whoever happened to cancel and I was able to step in and take your place.

And to my fabulous, talented, funny, friendly, foo foo (Mary Ann) roommates that I spent time with in the slumber room; you Westside ladies rock!


Mr. Truffle, you are truly the best husband and always appreciated.

Amanda enjoyed and was delighted with her surprise of a dozen, beautiful roses along with a box of designer strawberries. How sweet is her husband? Thanks Scott, they were divine. Now back to everyday life at home in the burbs. Maybe I should make my next reservation now???!!!
