Recipe, recipe!

It has been a long time since I've concocted anything wonderful enough to share here. (Those lemon-macadamia-white chocolate protein bars?...ugh, like furniture polish.) But today I saw this post and knew I had to link to it for my WLS friends 'cause we all need nummy non-carbonated fun drinks in the summer while everybody else is guzzling diet sodas. So pop over to http://buzzingsofaqueenbee.blogspot.com/2010/05/unique-herbal-iced-tea.html and check out her version of an Ina Garten recipe. I'll be rummaging in the cupboard for the appropriate tea bags as soon as I hit publish.

Enjoy! Hope you have a lovely and safe Memorial Day weekend.

Hello and Goodbye

It has taken me too long to get this photo uploaded but my dearly
missed sofa returned home from the upholsterer a few weeks ago. Seems he had a lot of trouble working with this fabric...maybe that is why someone else sold it at the Thrift Store? (hahaha) Well, their loss was my gain and now the pretty blue suede sofa is in the living room terrifying my family. Nobody sits on it because some shrewish woman keeps yelling at them to get off of it (usually because they always have food in their hands at the same time!) Maybe I should just purposely spill something on it myself and get it over with already. Uh, no. Not gonna happen.
Also totally loving the assortment of pillows...some of which are hand-me-downs from my boss and are absolute MATCHES for my fav colors and style. Now if I could just get the other yards and yards of fabrics purchased expressly to make other pillows sewn, my sofa would have it's very own wardrobe of pillows to change out weekly or maybe daily...


Buh-bye cutie! (Please disregard all the creative clutter, er--mess, in the background...you know how messy creative types are).
It is so much fun reading other people's blogs and gleaning fun ideas for crafts. When so many people posted about cake platters and cupcake stands it just got me wanting to make one in the worst way. So, a cheese tray, candle plate, wooden plate, two candlesticks and a lazy susan later I made this. Took it to the base Officer's Wives Club Thrift Store today and it sold within an hour. It was so much fun to make and is going to make it's premier appearance at someone's tea party hosting goodies. Be happy, little one.
