Welcome to the Senior Salon Pit Stop #291!

Welcome! The Senior Salon Pit Stop is now open! We invite you to come and take a look at all the wonderful recipes, ideas, articles and printable lists and planners being shared at SSPS #291! Because I can guarantee that you will be pleasantly surprised, at all the good stuff you are going to find…so I invite you to come and take a look. 


Hello and welcome to this week’s Senior Salon Pit Stop

This is one event that includes great informational posts for everyone to enjoy, as well as a welcoming platform for bloggers to share their content. And with so many family friendly posts being shared, I know you will find something new to inspire you, teach you or simply entertain you! Personally I am always looking for a new recipe or another do-it-yourself household idea, as well as anything outdoors-y for my own family! I can hardly wait to see what you are going to share with us all, this week.

Part of the fun, is seeing what's new! Or share an older post needing a bit of attention! All family friendly posts are welcome.

It is always interesting as well as informative to see what everyone is up to and what they have been working on. Do remember to visit one post for each post that you share, before you leave. Your visit will definitely make someone’s day brighter and isn’t that the best part of any link-up, or blog hop gathering, getting to know one another? So let’s get started by meeting the crew! And if you are a blogger, we would love to have you join us as a crew member…


***I do have one small favor to ask, please drop a comment telling me your posting/link-up numbers so that I can come and visit your posts and say hello. Thank you for being such a valuable part of SSPS!

    1. Lisa, get well as soon as possible, we each in our blended household got all three variants like stair steps about 3 years ago when it first reared it's powerful head. Thank you for sharing with us at SSPS, and I wish a healthy and happy Christmas for you and yours.

  4. Enjoy your well-deserved holiday and have a Blessed New Year! I make a different Buche de Noel each year, and my white chocolate Snowy White Buche de Noel (with cookie buttercream) is #96 ~ My oldest grandson has to have my homemade Peppermint Marshmallows each year, and those are #97. I made these 3-D Sugar Plums (almond shortbread) as "fillers" for my cookie baskets ~ #98. A molded Chocolate Orange Pave (mousse) with edible glitter is #99. I've made this Butterscotch Gingerbread for over 40 years (#100) ~ and finally a fun Santa Claus bread to make with frozen bread dough (#101).
