Friends of Ivoryhut

Filed under: Uncategorized — Karma @ 8:59 pm

Hello friends and readers.  I just wanted to take a moment to get a word out to those of you who may not have heard.  A great friend from the blogosphere, Erika, of The Ivory Hut, has experienced a terrible tragedy. On Tuesday night her home and all her possessions burned to the ground.   Maggy Keet of Three Many Cooks and Alice of SavorySweetLife have put up a website, The Friends of Ivory Hut to help a friend in time of need.  You can make a donation via Paypal there, or if you prefer, an address is given where you can send a check or gift card.

Erika, my thoughts are with you.  I’m so happy you have the love of family and good friends, as well as your whole family intact,  to get you through this terrible time.



  1. Saw this on KD’s stream too… Terrible story… I sure hope the website helps them out…

  4. Oh, Karma! I can’t even imagine this kind of tragedy and I’m simply in AWE of Erika’s strength and reslience. I don’t know her but seeing the community come together in a collective hug speaks to what kind of woman she must be. You and the others are amazing for putting together a website so quickly and getting the word out. Blessings to everyone.

    • I can’t take any credit for the website; I just wanted to do my part in spreading the word. I’ve never gotten to meet Erika in person, but I “met” her cyber-ly years ago when she was “just another wordpress blog” like all of us!

  5. Really sorry to hear about this, Karma. Praying for your friend and their family. I just went over to look at Ivory Hut. Is this one person’s blog, or is it a community? Or is it one person’s blog that has expanded into a community? Just wondering…

    • As far as I know, Ivoryhut’s personal blog, Ivoryhut.com, is all hers. She contributes, however, to the Tasty Kitchen community hosted by the PioneerWoman.com as well as the photography section of PDub’s blog. The Friends of Ivoryhut was created by some bloggers who were part of a food blogger meet up in Buck’s County, PA, this summer called “The Big Summer Potluck.” Erika was instrumental in helping to get things done for what turned out to be a small food blogger convention. My sister, of the blog “Bread and Putter,” attended and got to meet Erika in person.
