Hello and happy Sunday to you. Sorry this is getting there so late…had problems with my mail subscriber but it appears to be all fixed now.? Thank you so much for your very warm response to my “A farm, a dream and my very vivid imagination” all about my dream of possibly owning a farm/country estate and how I see it (click here if you missed it), seems I have? lots of company!

Hard to believe summer is over and it’s full steam ahead into fall. Such a very very busy week…I feel like I am just coming up for air this weekend, the only relaxing weekend I will have this month, lots going on.? It was my son’s birthday so we had celebrating to do…always fun and I kid you not, but I feel the very distant whispers of the holidays coming…scary but true!

I for now,? just want to enjoy fall…..even though it’s still hard to believe summer is really over, still much to do on my “summer bucket list”, guess there is always summer 2016 which does have a nice ring to it:) Anyway onto to my Seven on Sunday…..

These pool floats are fantastic for the kid in your family and how amazing is this enormous beach ball!

2 KIM PETERSON ART. Kim and I follow each other on Instagram. I am constantly amazed by the frequent works of art she churns out, being the talented painter she is. She has been inspired to paint several paintings based upon pictures I have featured on my blog which is of course the highest form of flattery.

I am always on the prowl to discover new wonderful talent and Kim Peterson’s art is worth sharing. Love how much she paints using blue and white and her prices are so reasonable! Click here to visit Kim.? Here are some recent favorites……

4.LEMONADE!I love it and drink it year round, not only is it super tasty but it can be so pretty, especially pink:) Really found this handy and already tried the sparkling peach lemonade which was sooo good (added a little vodka and created a new cocktail for guests last week).? Thought it was worth sharing in case you too love lemonade!

FABULOUS COATS. So every year I generally buy 2 coats or 1 coat and 2 jackets, have learned the best selection is now. I have learned by waiting that some of the best coats are gone or are only available in very limited sizes.

So I always welcome the new season by treating myself to a coat or two and given my selections here, I realized its safe to say I will end up with at least one gray coat:)? So here are some of the coats/jackets I am loving and think will see me through a stylish winter…

This is super warm and love the style, love that kind of stand up collar click here

6. THE MOST AMAZING PUMPKINS EVER. Speaking of talented artists, I do mean ever. Karolyn of The Relished Roost completely bowled me over with her most exquisite chinoiserie pumpkins….anyone who saw them urged her to get busy making more to sell….it was a business made in heaven. I am so delighted that she is now offering them for sale and will soon have a small online shop.

I wanted to share the beauty with you as I know my readers would want to know. Her prices are remarkably fair and she will customize it to your specifications. I cannot wait to put mine out!

You can email your inquiries or orders directly to Karolyn at [email protected].

Here they were from my bloggers luncheon…

7. EASY AND SUPER DELICIOUS FLANK STEAK SKEWERS. Have made this flank steak recipe for many many years (thanks Mom) but I changed it up by cutting the flank on the diagonal in thin 1/4″ strips and threading them onto small bamboo skewers. They cooked perfectly and were so delicious and best of all easy to eat, great for a big group.

You need-

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 large flank steak
  • bamboo skewers
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 large bunch of chopped green onions
  • 1-2 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2-3 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup oil (not olive oil)

So take your ingredients mix together in a ziploc bag. Meanwhile cut your steak on the diagonal with a very sharp knife into strips about 1/4″ thick. “Thread” them onto the skewers and place in a large flat tupperware or aluminum dish.

Tupperware is great because with the airtight container you can put it upside down when you need to rotate the skewers in just a few seconds. Seal and refrigerate. Ideally overnight but min. 6-8 hours for maximum tenderness and flavor. Put on a hot grill, they cook pretty fast and be prepared for some mighty tasty steak skewers!
You can also of course add vegetables to this as well….

Not the greatest pictures but you certainly get the idea!

Good morning Tina,

I love your 7 on Sunday because then I have a few things to explore after reading them! I always discover a new and interesting Instagram feed for instance.

I love Karolyn’s pumpkins and in fact featured them in my Friday Favorites this week! She is incredibly talented!

Love your new products! The pillows are gorgeous!

I am going to check out the grey coats now, it is my new favorite color the last few years and I have yet to find a coat that I like.

Have a wonderful week Tina!

Tina…I love the new mirror…so pretty! I’m going to check out Instagram..I always love seeing what Loi has to post!

Tina, here’s a great idea: for your bext promotion, how about offering your current home to one lucky winner? Once you give it away, you can move to your dream farm.
Hard to argue with this solution for your dream, right?

Celia Becker @ After Orange County on

Your beaded evening clutches are absolutely exquisite! I wish I had seen them sooner as I could have used one for a wedding I’ll be attending next Sunday. Well, I’ll have to remember them for the next special occasion.

Hi Tina! So behind in blogworld, but love getting a quick catch up on what’s up in your world via your Sunday posts! Those pillows are about the most incredible things I’ve ever seen – just beautiful! As, of course, are Karolyn’s pumpkins – just unreal what she is able to create. I have mine from our luncheon out and it reminds me of that wonderful day! Hope you are well and have a wonderful week ahead! XOXO

I’m getting great ideas – LOVE that Fabiana Filippi coat!! And can’t wait to try the orzo pasta salad recipe!! I just love when you do multiple posts in one week – what a treat!!

Take care.
