Getting Our Swag On! (Part One of Our First BlogLove™ Event)

Most of you may know, we love to gather people around a table!  Chris Ann and I decided to plan a blogger's networking event called BlogLove™.  We've attended other networking events and met some wonderful people in the process.  Truth be told, we just love to have an excuse to have a party!  We love to design cards and plan a menu.  We like to tablescape and give gifts!  Years before we were bloggers we threw many a party together!

Something Kristin and I started a while back was something we like to call Fancy Friday.  It's a chance to share at our table things that inspires us, things that are beautiful, colorful, soulful, and artistic...things that we like to call "fancy".  You can click on some of of our Fancy Friday's here.

Fancy Friday Kitchen Tables “Have A Seat”

If you've been following us on Fridays, you'll know that we like it Fancy!  We take today to feature the things that inspire us!  Well, not too long ago, we were twittered by @hipgirls Kate Payne who wanted to start a #FancyFriday run!  Only to find out, great minds think alike!  Because we are always on the look out for a FancyFriend, we stalked her, only to find out, what we already sensed in our bones, she's our kinda gal!  So, in LoveFeast fashion, we asked Kate to pull up a chair and join us at the Table!  We feel so … [Read more...]

How To Make An Aebleskiver

What are they?  They're Aebleskivers.  And, they want to be served at your next gathering! This is my Aebleskiver.  It's not as perfect as the winning Aebleskiver.  But let me tell you it was a tummy full of "pop-cake" love!!  You see a Aebleskiver is a cross between a popover and and a pancake!  Traditionally, this Danish treat is filled with an apple slice.  We made both savory and sweet versions at the Minnesota Blog Pantry Blogging Event I attended at Local D'Lish. The Mac Daddy of Aebleskivers, Chad Gillard aka … [Read more...]

A woman's face is her work of fiction." ~Oscar Wilde "As a beauty I'm not a great star. Others are handsomer far; but my face -- I don't mind it because I'm behind it; it the folks out in front that I jar." ~A.H. Euwer "What is a face, really? Its own photo? Its make-up? Or is it a face as painted by such or such painter? That which is in front? … [Read more...]

I Heart Faces Photo Walk ~ Minnesota

"There are always two people in every picture:  the photographer and the viewer." ~Ansel Adams This was one of my favorite photographs from the I Heart Faces Photo Walk Across America that I participated in last Saturday.  Although its not of a's a little about a walk...or maybe perhaps, a journey.  It's a theme I write about off and on.  I like the idea and the experience of paths in general.  It's a little peak about the excitement of the future.  It's when you start walking and you wander a bit, but you still … [Read more...]
