Travel Me This, Nomad

I just wanted to share with you a treasure I just received...Sibella Court's Nomad....A global approach to interior style. Have you ever received a book that you just don't want to end? You digest a page a day, let the words sink in, the images take hold in your savor, taste and try out how they land in your space. I'm only a few pages (10 to be exact) into this book, but each page I've read has delivered pure inspiration. This morning I'm sinking my creative juices into Siblella Court's "About Me" page: I am I … [Read more...]

Sunday Morning Croissant Sandwiches

I don't know about you, but Sunday mornings are the one day of the week we linger over coffee in our jammies and we usually  make an effort with breakfast. During the week, it's cereal, oatmeal, bagels...quick food.  But, on Saturday mornings, we try a little harder. Today, I decided to bake off Pillsbury Crescent rolls to use for egg sandwiches with turkey pastrami, aged cheddar cheese and fresh arugula. The beautiful thing about Pillsbury Crescent rolls, is they are convenient. It took me less than 5 minutes to unroll … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Five ~ Happy Inspiration

We've relaunched Fancy Friday our weekly linky party.  It's now Fancy Friday Five! Every Friday we're inviting you to join us at the table and share what 5 things were fancy to you.  And along with the change ~ there's been conversation about what "Fancy" just might be.  We don't want to give you the impression fancy has to be expensive, rich, overly done or beyond one's reach.  Fancy, to us, is closer to what good ole' Webster's says fancy is. 1. An image or representation of anything formed in the mind.  2. A whim  3. … [Read more...]

Advantium Bakes Taco Meatloaf

A couple of weeks ago, we had a new member join our family...GE Profile™ Advantium® oven. I have to admit, once it was installed, it was a little intimidating. It promised to be a microwave, European convection oven, warming oven and Speedcook oven all in one.  Not even the other members of my family can deliver all those promises in one.  I was wondering if the Advantium would be a good fit. We started testing her out by simply heating up food in the microwave.  That's a language our family of 7 fully understands.  My kids … [Read more...]

Interview With Author Dani Pettrey

Soon after I met Dani Pettrey, I was in a room full of women and she announced that she had just received a 3 book deal with Bethany House Publishers. I was thrilled for her.  That was a year ago and I've gotten to know Dani pretty well since that time.  I have to say, I am even more thrilled for her! There is something so inspiring about knowing someone who had a dream, worked hard and persistently to see it become a reality. Dani is an amazing woman who juggles her life as a homeschool mom, caretaker to her own mom, author, … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Five~Link Party

I'm a bit giddy this morning! Chris Ann is on her way to Baltimore along with her husband Todd, to help me celebrate my 4oth! We will be getting together with a bunch of old friends and new tomorrow night at a local Indian restaurant.  This weekend will just be the icing on the cake to a wonderful birthday week! My Fancy Friday Five was hard to narrow down.  I was treated like a queen all week by my family.  And can you believe, they kept the 40, over the hill jokes to a minimum.  At least, most of them did.  The cards … [Read more...]

Valentine Treats To Savor With Tea

Taking time to savor the moment with a pot or cup of tea has always been something I have enjoyed in my day. Over the years, I have enjoyed the preparation of putting out a proper cup of tea for friends, with fancy favorite dishes and small bites. Sometimes I just pop a mug, quick in the microwave to make a single cup to enjoy by myself. My family has learned I rarely make something warm to drink without a nibble on the side. They have also learned to enjoy the nurturing moments of a warm cup and a moment to chat. The … [Read more...]

Happy Birthday Wishes!

Whoohooo!!  Guess who is blowing out 40 candles today!!  Kristin!  My LoveFeast Table partner in crime.  Now that Kristin is at "the top of the hill" (I didn't say it first!)  you could say that it will be all down hill from here ~ LOL.  But, I can tell you this (from experience) Kristin's 40's ~ will probably be more of all the wonderful things her life is already filled with a loving husband, beautiful kids, an artistic cozy welcoming home, a table full of family friends who admire and respect her.   And a bff and biz partner … [Read more...]
