Happy Birthday, Dean Butler

If you’ve ever picked a leaf from a lemon verbena plant and rubbed it between your fingers, you know how lovely the scent is. It is such a captivating fragrance, which is probably why Isaiah, in the “Little House on the Prairie” TV show exclaims, “Anyone who wears lemon verbena is a friend of mine!” Enjoy this unique and timeless aroma with these easy DIY Lemon Verbena Feed-Sack Sachets.

Rock candy or sugar candy has been around for centuries, so it’s almost certain that Laura and Mary would have seen something similar in the general stores they visited.

Pick your favorite colors and watch this candy grow!
Lemonade is a timeless beverage that even little Laura Ingalls enjoyed during special occasions.

Add a special twist with fresh strawberries to create a splash of color and some extra sweetness.

Full of perseverance, courage, and faith, she was a caring and loving wife and Ma.
