Hi there, feels like forever since I’ve done a post on the house. Busy week over here, working almost full time with my edesign projects and trying to get a few projects in my own home underway, unfortunately its slow going as they keep getting pushed to the backburner. I have so many things I want to do just need more time! I am going to be posting only 2-3 times a week over the next few weeks, I am extremely busy with my various projects, my online shop and the response to the monogrammed napkin order! I will be away for the day tomorrow so instead of posting the winner Wed. morning I am doing it on Tuesday evening.? Speaking of monogrammed napkins….. First order of business is to announce the very lucky winner of the 4 custom monogrammed napkins! Congratulations goes to- Judy yarrusso says: January 30, 2015 at 2:08 pm ?? Beautiful napkins! Love the sage with black Savannah font! Thanks Tina for another great giveaway Judy Y. The response has been incredible to them, they should be up on my online shop in the next 3-5 days. Please contact me to provide your shipping details. Hope all is well on your end. Here is whats new in my neck of the woods….. Loving my new camera! Took some pics around the house and loving the quality and clarity of the pictures. I really could use a photography lesson or two but having fun playing, here are some recent pictures- The snow just doesn’t want to stop..it is beautiful but so cold and it is frozen in place, I cannot imagine seeing green grass for a long long time! Added these chunky? oversized ginger jars from my shop to the island…..(sorry my kitchen was not quite ready for it’s closeup) And rearranged my essentials on the stove top and put them all in a pretty blue and white casserole tray Just loving my dining room mantle, and think the final tweaking is done…… And here is a partial recap of the food from? my little Superbowl get together which was loads of fun, and I must say the food was really yummy! I did all tapas and plenty of them!? I managed to take a few pictures… Yummy sirloin cheeseburger and chicken sliders with yummy seasoned waffle fries These were my crab balls with remoulade, soooo good! Click here for the recipe, easy peasy and very tasty. Served them in my little blue and white bowls which made for easy serving And these were so good, mini taco bits (made them in a standard cupcake tin). They were a hit! Click here for recipe…delish! My friends brought this beautiful fruit platter and? a tray of heavenly good Italian pastries. Speaking of homefront, in love with my new bench from Decorative Crafts, still considering a new bed, would probably do a velvet upholstered headboard/footboard in velvet if so but this is already one step closet to getting my room done….. Made this beautiful arrangement with the peony clusters from my shop, they look so real. How magnificent is this planter! I can’t say much about it right now but let’s just say this gorgeous planter is part of a huge porcelain announcement that will come sometime in Feb/early March! So thats a little bit of whats going on here, I guess I am finding myself in a bit of a nesting mode…given how frigid it is, I love coming home to a warm inviting home. And frankly if I could hibernate all winter long, I would do it in a flash! Hope you are well, thanks for stopping in. Wishing you a great night and be back in a few days…..
