What is cozier than a down type comforter and a good book at bedtime?

Le Bleu Dish

Oh yes! I broke down and purchased this gorgeous hexagonal trinket box for my future abode. Half off at Hobby Lobby and sure to be a favorite. It's the obvious catchall for coins and safety pins.

A Home From Childhood

Last Thursday evening I enjoyed a dinner with some good friends at their home in the country. I was quite amazed that the living room looked exactly as I remembered from the early 1990's! Oh what a lovely day I recalled Easter egg hunting as a child!

Soup's On!

Just in case you need a soup to bolster to you up these days. I whipped out this clear vegetable soup with the following ingredients and it hit the spot! Carrot, celery, cabbage, garlic, bay leaves, white rice, olive oil, bouillon, water and a dash of salt. So easy. So delish!

Everyday Patterns

There are amazing patterns around us all the time, but I think we take them for granted. This tin ceiling pattern can be found in the backroom of a dentist's office where the ceiling has not yet been lowered. It's a shame that anyone would ever lower the ceiling of an old building. It ultimately compromises the integrity of the architecture.

Gold, Yellow, White and Lots of Lace

Decorations complete. Games chosen. Game and door prizes purchased. Favors purchased. Now to finish the talk for the event. Yes, that tea pot is part of the decor, but it's also a door prize (filled with chocolate kisses!)

What a Dollar Store Barrette Inspires

How to Spend Free Time


A book of English poetry, a French Press, a sweater, a comforter and a heated bean bag from the bestie.

The juice of tangerines, oranges and a little lemon is just the ticket to refresh you.
