ow that my boys are all of driving age I get chauffeured around a lot. Kind of a Driving Miss Heather of sorts. I am cool with their music choices because they range from Simon and Garfunkel to 80’s hair bands to what is current right now and one of the songs on their play list really struck me as truth about my feelings of creating a home. And while I have listened to 1000’s of songs and read 100’s of books and poems about home, Blue October summed it all up with one line—-“It’s the little things that make a home”. So with that theme in mind I would like to dedicate this issue to the little things that make up our homes. For instance like creating a viable business to help support a growing family from a special treat you once made just for them during the holidays. Or finding out at such a young age your passion is reading then seeing how rewarding sharing that passion can be with other young readers. Home is in the family adventures we take exploring the greatest state in the Union at some of the greatest treasures our state has to offer. Home can be found in a memory, about family time spent together, building bonds and how those memories can renew a creative spirit we had forgotten. Home is standing next to my grown son and watching him make soup for our church family. That same soup I made for our family and his Nanny made for before that. Home is not just inside our four walls but is in a small town casual encounter with an acquaintance leading to her true coming home story being featured in this issue and what I suspect to be a life long friendship between us. I am excited about the coming year for Come Home. I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish this year and I am excited to share with you a little each month, after all, it’s the little things that make a home.

ooey, gooey deliciousness sounds like a delectable way to spend your time. What if you got to do that and get paid for it? Getting paid turns it into a job, so would it still have the same appeal and would you still love to do it? Well, if you’re the Caramel Diva, that’s an absolute YES!

Diana Bailey, also known as the Caramel Diva, has been making homemade caramel for a little over 15 years. It was something she loved to do around the holidays and would serve as special family treats and gifts for others. She says she’s tweaked the recipe over the years and thought it was perfect. Everyone raved about the taste and her six children were always excited for the delicious special treats. Being a stay-at-home mom, she began to mull around ideas about how to make some extra cash for the family. The always popular sweet caramel treat came to mind. She thought they were

such around the house. In 2015, they decided to enter some items in the local county and district fairs. As Diana thought about what she should enter, she thought why not the Christmas Caramel. She entered and she won. She won top honors in both fairs. After such a smashing success, she wondered if the caramel would be a sustainable business. She made up some batches and off to the craft fairs she went, coming home with no leftovers. It has become a successful venture for the

soft spoken stay at home mom and definitely has kept her home. Originally she was known as the Caramel Lady, a moniker Diane didn’t care for. She thought it made her sound much older. The story of how her name changed is a very sweet tale. Having six children at home, Diane and her husband have very limited time alone so they have agreed to make couple time daily even if it’s just a few minutes. They have a daily routine of meeting at the

good but could be greater. There was just something missing. As Diane sat in the kitchen after making a batch, she had some Celtic salts sitting on the counter that she purchased with the intent of incorporating into the caramel somehow. She shook a bit out on the counter and picked up a caramel square, slid it around in the salt, and popped it in her mouth. She thought, “Oh my gosh!! That’s it!! And it’s dangerous!” Now the Caramel Diva was all set. Her original public sharing of caramel came about as a family project. She and the kids always did crafts and

vehicle when Tracy (her husband) gets home from work and they stroll to the mailbox and back and discuss their day. Diane’s nickname was weighing on her mind and she really wanted to change it. Another tidbit of information is that Diane loves to sing. So, one day on their stroll, diva came up in the conversation and something just clicked. The Caramel Diva was launched.

Initially, the Diva and her family made everything, including the packaging for the caramels. So if she wanted to box up 400 sets of sweets, they made 400 boxes for packaging. On the first anniversary rolled around in the fall, they have automated some. They have a packaging machine now and also an automatic cutter. However, she will still make the specialty boxes for special occasions. Along about February 2016, Diana began thinking about chocolate (must have been Valentine’s Day influences). She initially dipped the caramel in melted kisses. That was a no go, too sweet. She then went shopping and found several other types of chocolates and it was a trial-and-error as to which ones were the best. The diva made her selections and I assure you, she made great decisions.

We were treated to some of the scrumptious creations and let me just say, one of the best sweet concoctions I’ve ever had. My personal favorite is the salted caramel dipped in white coconut chocolate. It is heavenly. Just try it and see if you aren’t in love.

here is nothing like opening a brand new book, touching the silky cover, and smelling the pages. This is something I wish every child could experience. While I have a whole room full of books, not every child has the privilege. For this very reason, I started Bright Beginnings- Today a Reader * Tomorrow a Leader, with the goal of handing out 800 books by the end of the school year. So far, I have given away nearly 500 new books. These books were purchased with pageant winnings, babysitting money, my own savings, donations, and bonus points teachers have accumulated through their classroom book clubs. Reading has always been an important part of my life, resulting in me being an avid reader which has helped me to excel in school and played a huge role

in helping me win the Boone County Spelling Bee 3 years in a row. You can always find me with a book or two in my possession at any given time. Some of my favorite Christmas gifts this year were books given to me by friends and family. The mom of one of my friends even questioned her daughter as she was picking out the perfect gift for me. The mom asked, “Are you sure she’s going to want a book as her Christmas gift from you?” My friend (who obviously knows me well) replied that she was absolutely positive, and she was right. I want to share my love of reading with as many children as possible, so I hand out books at community events where large amounts of people can be reached. I also give books to teachers for use in their classrooms, in addition to drawings and giveaways on my Bright Beginnings Facebook page. A

classroom set of the book Frindle, along with pens and notebooks, was sent to a school affected by the Louisiana flooding. A thank you note I received stated that 228 students would benefit from these supplies. When I was 7, I started raising money for this project. It took a while for the money to accumulate, so I finally put my plan into action this past summer when my family went on a vacation out West. I handed out books to children along the way as we stopped at Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole and the Grand Canyon. I enjoyed meeting people from across the country, and seeing their reactions to receiving a new book. Since then, I have been doing everything I can to spread the love of reading in Harrison and surrounding communities.

Family adventureS at petit jean state park written and photographed by nate jordan

I’m a newcomer to Arkansas and one of the things that has most impressed me about the Natural State is its State Parks. From amenities to trails, from geographic diversity to wildlife, from food to views, our State Parks are the finest I’ve ever visited. They even rival some of our National Parks and, I believe, they are the crown jewels in state tourism. As Come Home kicks off the New Year with an expose on our State Parks, for the first issue I’m focusing on the state’s first: Petit Jean State Park.

Come Home


To get things swinging, sometime in late spring my wife and I started planning our trip. It was easy to do online by simply perusing the pages on petitjeanstatepark. com and the park’s page on arkansas. com. Contained in the park’s 2,658 acres we found ample opportunities for hiking, swimming, paddling, camping, and exploring. We have a nine and seven yearold and our adventure agenda included several firsts for them, which was the constant topic of conversation around the dinner table for weeks. Once school ended we kicked off the summer by packing up the kids and gear and heading south to spend a week discovering all the park has to offer. The park is located between the Ozark and Ouachita Mountain ranges, twentyeight miles west of Morrilton. After snapping pictures of the park sign near the entrance and taking in the expansive views of the ravines and surrounding ridges from the top of Petit Jean Mountain, our first stop was at the visitor center. After checking in at the desk and getting more information from park employees, we bought the kids some snacks, a couple bundles of firewood, then headed off to set up camp.


Come Home

Surrounded by lush hardwood forest, our campsite was located in a grove of pine trees providing ample shade for our tent and picnic table with views of Lake Bailey a short distance away. We had a fire pit for nighttime s’mores and star gazing, a raised grill, water spigot, and – to my wife’s contentment – a bathhouse with flush toilets and hot water for showers just a short walk away. As well, there was an electrical outlet at our site which was a blessing for this Colorado fella, because even in June the nighttime temps were a bit warm for me, but no problem; I plugged in a fan and placed it near a mesh tent window to provide a much needed breeze inside. With several hours of daylight left we got right to exploring. Our first excursion was the short hike along Bear Cave Trail. We could’ve hiked it in thirty minutes and been back at the truck, but what’s the fun in that? Instead we crawled in caves, climbed rock walls, and explored slot canyons. On our way back to camp we stopped by the Boat House to inquire about renting canoes and kayaks, but instead opted for paddle boats.

We kicked off the next day hiking to Cedar Falls. The trailhead is located through the breezeway of Mather Lodge, a Civilian Conservation Corps masterpiece of native stone and rough hewn logs, with a valley view that knocked our hiking socks off. It was then I had the kids take off their adventure packs and told them to look inside. They found their first cameras my wife and I bought them and they giggled like chimps as they took their first photos of that view. The short hike to the falls is not for the faint of heart. It’s steep and full of switchbacks and played hell on the knees, but it is shaded by the forest canopy and it got cooler along the descent into Cedar Creek Canyon. Reaching the falls we were rewarded with a sprinkling mist from Cedar Falls which cascades over ninety feet to a pool on the canyon floor. It’s one of the state’s most iconic sights and the only thing I regret is not bringing our bathing suits.

to swim right there in my arms. Oddly enough he didn’t splash around flailing his hands and feet everywhere, he just held his breath and started swimming underwater. The pool became a daily thing for us the rest of our trip. After a zero day spent relaxing, reading, tossing a Frisbee around and more swimming, on our fourth day we got back to exploring more of the park. We spent the morning hiking and exploring Rock House Cave, a source of wonder for us and the kids. The cave contains pictographs on the ceiling left by the Native Americans who lived in the region ages ago. Some of the pictographs resembled animals but others appeared to be geometric shapes and symbols, their meanings a mystery to everyone.

After huffing it back to the top, we all had hamburgers inside Mather Lodge. We were sweaty and dirty but patrons and staff didn’t bat an eye, as families like ours can be a common sight. As we exited the lodge we paused for a second to listen to a middle-aged couple sitting on a bench playing a mandolin and guitar, singing a folksy tune in the breezeway. After a quick rinse in the showers and hanging out in our hammocks back at camp, the kids begged us to take them swimming. We went to the public pool located near the visitor center and people of all ages where enjoying the afternoon sun. Indy is a strong swimmer so she went out to the deep end taking full advantage of the water slide and diving boards. Cooper, though, was just learning how to use his flippers so I stayed in the shallow end with him. After coaching him awhile I strapped my GoPro to my head and I’m glad I did. I captured Cooper learning how

On the hike back we stopped and let the kids marvel at the “turtle rocks” we were walking on, Cooper absolutely convinced that we were, in fact, walking on ancient turtles.

The history of Petit Jean State Park is something I will leave you to discover. It’s intriguing to say the least and understanding it will make your trip that much more memorable. Next up on our adventure agenda was horseback riding, the only thing we did outside the park. Barnyard Friends and Stables is located just outside Morrilton and they were able to accommodate us as walk-ins, though I suggest making reservations for your

trip. After spending time in the petting zoo while the ranch hand saddled our horses, we put our boots in the stirrups and hit the trail. It was Indy and Cooper’s first time on horses and, like everything they do, they took to it like naturals.

Our fifth day was our last full day at Petit Jean State Park, and our most ambitious. We started the day hiking the Seven Hollows Trail, a four-anda-half mile hike through hardwood forest, rock fields, hollows, grottos, and canyons. This also turned out to be our hottest day in the park, something we didn’t discover until halfway through the hike seeing Indy’s cheeks were flushed. Fortunately much of the hike was shaded and we brought plenty of water, but nonetheless reaching the trailhead at the end felt like we discovering the Ark of the Covenant.

After having lunch at camp and cooling off, we took a drive along Red Bluff Drive to soak in the panoramas at the M.A. Overlook and the C.C.C. Overlook. The C.C.C. Overlook was my favorite not so much because of the view it offered, but because of the masterly crafted rock shelter V-C.C.C. Company 1781 built there in the 1930s.

When I started this story I said we were going to “spend a week discovering all the park has to offer.” Well, we needed another week, at least. There’s much more to explore in the park than I can cover here. From the Cedar Creek Trail to the Canyon Trail to the twelve-mile Winthrop P.

Maybe we’ll participate in one of the many activities hosted by park rangers. One thing’s for sure, we’ll once again take nothing but pictures, and leave nothing but our footprints.

The dining room table was constructed from an old painted door. I love the warmth of the mixed chairs crowded around the table. The centerpiece was designed from an old wooden tool box I washed with a white and blue layer of paint and stenciled with a French cafe design, the silk flowers were a steal I found at the Dollar Tree.


extraordinary MEMORIES

Written by Sylvia Kilgore • Photographed by Beth Crenshaw

The year was 1963, and while the world turned their attention to Beatle Mania and the horror of the JFK assassination, our family moved. This was not just any move. After years of planning, our dream of moving to ‘the farm’ was finally realized. Kenneth and Louise Kilgore packed a moving truck full of antique furniture, 3 kids

and everything that went with them and left Kansas City to move to a farm in the White Oak community near Harrison. A lifetime of adventures awaited each family member.

Come Home


I was nine years old when we moved. My sister, Elaine, was six and our brother, Kenny, was 3. The farm house was full with our family of five, but I don’t remember every worrying about that. Mom squeezed her antique furniture into the house and filled the kitchen table three times a day with home cooked meals from vegetables, meat, eggs and milk we grew on our farm.

We went to town twice a week, once to shop and once to worship. We took the pickup truck on Saturdays with the three kids piled in the back for a joyful windblown 20 minute trip to downtown Harrison. The highlight of the trip was getting milkshakes at the Rocket Drive-in on the corner of Pine and Central. We followed with a shopping trip to Edwards’ Grocery to get staples and the 10 for $1 ham sandwich special. Ahhhh, remember those were the days before fast food. Sundays saw us at First Assembly of God Church on Cherry Street where we worshipped. The farm soon hosted cows, goats, pigs, chickens, ducks, cats and a dog. We milked, gardened, canned vegetables, picked wild berries, gathered eggs, baked bread, washed clothes on a wringer washer then hung them on the line. When our chores were done, we played, hard. In the summer, we played in our creek and picnicked at the cave and in the winter we made snow cream and sledded in the pasture.

The triple framed Amish scenes were commissioned and photographed by Charissa Miller. The Amish cross stitch art I collected over several years. The small wooden pantry in the kitchen was designed by my mother and built by my dad and can be found in each of their children’s homes. Amish art and old quilts were brought to life when my daughter Adria and I visited an Amish home and small town in Ohio on our way to State University of New York where she obtained her graduate degree.

As the farm grew, our family bonds grew also. The seeds of family values, work ethic and belief in God were harvested in three growing children who would all return home as adults to their beloved Arkansas.

The upper cabinet doors were repurposed antique windows, the creative idea of our builder Charles. The vanities and corresponding mirrors were constructed from old house doors and barn doors.

The large crock holding the coffee table floral arrangement was a gift from my mom. The accompanying galvanized tray is a gift from my daughter, Adria Bueg. I myself picked the cotton in a field in East Arkansas, 27 with myCome friend Home Robin Morris.

The ceiling in the breakfast room was created from reclaimed barn roofing. The vaulted ceilings in the remainder of the house were designed from tongue and groove wood and rustic solid wood beams with a white wash finish to replicate old wood.

After college, I initially made my home in Illinois where I worked for the University of Illinois. My heart ached to return to the South so I moved to Springfield to work as a dietitian at St. John’s Hospital. I finally made my way back to Harrison in 1987. My sister Elaine acquired her degree in counseling at the University of Arkansas and began her career with Health and Human Services in Russellville then relocated to Fayetteville where she plans to retire with her family nearby. My brother Ken returned to Arkansas following his medical residency in Tampa, Florida, to open ophthalmology practices in Mountain Home and Harrison. He now resides in Mountain Home. My mom and dad were married 61 years before Dad’s death in 2014. Mom joined him in Heaven late last year.

Family roots were planted deep in this land and now the quiet family farm beckoned me home. The little farmhouse of long ago was replaced with a new home on another part of the farm in the late 60’s. The memories of our first Arkansas home still spoke to me in whippoorwills and fireflies on starry nights and brought me peace and yearning to go back to the country. My house south of town didn’t fit the missing piece in my heart. So near the old home site, overlooking the creek and the weathered red barn, a new farmhouse was planned. This new farmhouse would become a celebration of childhood memories and dreams while becoming the gathering place for the Kilgores once again. A great big thank you to all who designed, worked, created, and helped my bring my childhood memories back to life. The new farmhouse is just the right fit in my heart. The new farmhouse was designed and built by all local artisans, many I knew from school or were my neighbors. It was important to me to honor the community with the new farmhouse. Our architect and builder was Charles Creamer. He was assisted by Rex Knapp. Once the house was completed, they restored the red barn and gave it a facelift with new doors and painted trim. Charles is the most patient and gifted builder, listening and responding to all my ideas for building my special home. The house site excavation was done by Gary Jackson. Ron Vierling covered the electrical while Tarvis Clark took care of the plumbing. The foundation was laid by Gary Combs and the brick finish was created by Dale’s Stucco. Heating and cooling were installed by Curtis Heating and Cooling. Drywall was completed by Kurt Ryan. Flooring was installed by Gordon Rorrer and Casey Bueg. The granite was installed by Harrison Granite.

The early antique gothic window gracing the master bedroom was acquired from an old church in Salem, Arkansas, and was gift from Kay Brooks, proprietor of Annie Idell’s Antiques near Salem.

The early antique walnut pie safe filled with quilts and antique linens was purchased from Linda Lovejoy of Lovejoy’s Collectibles in Harrison and my friend Cecilia Foley sold me the small iron bed in the loft. The towel bars and loft stair rail were made from plumbing fixtures.

The secretary desk as well as the library table were memorable antiques from my childhood. The porch swing was constructed by my dad and painted to match my porch furniture. It is my favorite place to rock my grandbabies and reminisce about life on the farm.

The décor accents were all acquired from family and friends. Our oversized chandelier was found by Connie and Charles Creamer, proprietors of Down Home Creations. The repurposed galvanized milk strainer pendant lights were designed and created by Andy Fisher of Southern Boy Primitives. Although the strainers were not acquired from our farm, they conjure memories of milking in the barn with my dad.

Gather the Girlfriends and Create



’m not sure if it’s the cold weather or warm memories associated with winter, but the season unfailingly causes me to reflect on the true joys of my life. Growing up, we received gifts but the real happiness I experienced didn’t involve presents or possessions. The high points of those frigid months seemed to stem from anticipation of the next gathering and the things we’d make.

human need to create. It was fun then, but looking back, I learned creating strengthened our sense of self-worth and sealed relationships. It taught us to connect and progress. So it’s no wonder winter images of my childhood flooded my mind the minute I stepped into Sugar Gems. This was unlike any bead store I’d ever seen. Crystal dishes holding beads of different sizes, shapes and colors covered tables and shelves throughout the store. Long strands of multi-color beads hung in neat, colorfully organized rows against several walls. Connectors, clasps and clips adorned display stands. Glass counters boasted sparkling jewels and antique brooches. My fingers brushed metal, stone and plastic as my mind processed the full extent of creative possibilities this little gem store held. I could choose any chain, bauble or charm to create anything I dreamed. My large family was a creative lot. When we weren’t learning to garden, sew, quilt, play the piano, or paint, we crafted. We made things; toy boxes, construction paper greeting cards, homemade candies, beef jerky over an open fire. Adulthood made me realize we did these things not because we were talented or bored or poor, but because constructing through learning and building satisfies a deep-rooted

Nostalgic trinketry hung in the air. It wrapped me up, made me smile, and left me torn between breaking away from the lockets and charms and racing to the crafting table with my finds.

I sorted through brass and rock a few moments longer, then decided it was time to bring Lydia my selection of copper chain, clasp and a tiny gold cylinder. I placed my selections on the table and Lydia worked her

Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
