There You Are . . . Welcome

     

    No matter the weather or the season, TwoCansOnAString.com is where you need to come regularly to see what’s new. It’s a cozy little place that is growing, but it feels like home. I add recipes and holiday crafts, take a look at popular products to review and shoot the breeze about anything that strikes my fancy. If I like it, most likely you will, too. Or at the very least find it a bit interesting. TwoCansOnAString.com is the first website I started. It’s very important to me. It’s where family and friends come to see what’s new. It has gone through some changes . . . and is reverting back to the eclectic clutter of an attic full of treasures that interest those who come around regularly. I rarely plan what I’m going to write. I just know I’m going to write something of interest. So hop on board and journey with me throughout the year . . . you’ll be glad you did . . . and so will I.
