HAPPY FALL

2014-09-26T11:59:45.041-04:00

Well, well, it's been a while since I've blogged
I can't believe it's fall...sob, sob
Where DID the summer go?
I certainly hope yours was a splendid one!
Did you go anywhere exciting?? Did you catch up
on projects in your home, spend more time with the kids,
or decide to get fit in the great weather?
What ever you did I hope it was happy and productive.
However, now it's time to think fall.
Time to start pulling out some sweaters
and boots
Time to drink cider 
and smell the autumn leaves
and pick pumpkins
so so long summer
hello fall
There's a whole lot of fun to be had!

Happy May Day!
In France May 1st is also La Fête du Muguet,
The Festival of the Lily of the Valley,
with its tradition of giving a small bouquet
of lily-of-the-valley, for good luck
and happiness and as a
celebration of the end of winter




  I hope you have a wonderful May Day! 
Go celebrate spring with some beautiful,
delicate, fragrant flowers



PEACHY GREEN

2014-04-21T11:36:53.692-04:00

APRICOT AND CELERY
MOSS AND PEACH
BLUSH AND CELEDON
Whatever you choose to call these colors,
they make such a perfect
combination together
If nature loves the colors together,
then why shouldn't we???


If you're looking for a dreamy
color palette for a room in your home,
why not give these colors a try?






WELCOME SPRING

2014-03-20T17:16:36.098-04:00

     After a long, cold and snowy winter
how many of you are looking 
forward to warm sunshine,
the emergence of flowers
poking through the ground,
buds on the trees
and the sweet sound of 
birds chirping ???
Aaaah...gotta love Spring
Welcome, welcome!
We have been waiting for you!

What are you doing today?
I am working on spiffing up
the house with some happier 
Spring vignettes...even though
snow's in the forecast for tonight.
Hoping it's the last of it for the year...
Can some warmer weather 
get here soon?? The birds
are ready and waiting
 to start chirping again!




CLIMBING ROSES

2014-03-16T16:36:05.894-04:00

 There's something about roses 
climbing on a house,
 especially one made of brick or stone,
that makes it so much 
more appealing...and certainly
 more romantic!





 Swoon!

ATTENTION ALL TARGET SHOPPERS

2012-06-04T12:53:38.546-04:00

 Do you love TARGET as much as I do??
I just learned that they 
have a markdown schedule 
most of their stores follow.
 So if you have your eye on something 
in a particular department, 
you may want to re-think 
what day to go shopping there! 
Now this may not be etched in stone 
for your neighborhood store, 
but if you shop in it enough, 
you will figure out their schedule.

Monday Target Markdowns: Kids’ Clothing, Stationery (office supplies, gift wrap), Electronics
Tuesday Target Markdowns: Women’s Clothing and Domestics
Wednesday Target Markdowns: Men’s Clothing, Toys, Health and Beauty
Thursday Target Markdowns: Lingerie, Shoes, Housewares
Friday Target Markdowns: Cosmetics, Housewares, Automotives

Personally, I am always on the lookout in their housewares and Domestics area, 
so Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays 
are my "magic shopping days"
When would I find you there??

Ruffled Cakes and Layered Ombre Cakesare so hot right now and are all over Pinterest and BlogsDid you ever wonder how they are made?Here's a step by step "how to" that you can use to try out your baking skills... Choose your favorite vanilla cake recipe to make & divide the batter into four or five bowls, depending on how many layers you want  Starting with the lightest color, add a drop of dye. Then continue adding more to each bowl as you go. You should end with four or five shades of pink, or whatever color you choose Bake each layer individually  Divide the frosting into three bowls, adding dye to each of them, making one a little darker from the other Stack together from light to dark, frosting in-between the layersStart with the lightest color of frosting and work your way up, changing colors as you goNOW FOR THE RUFFLES  Use a  rose or petal tip in a back and forth motionand work your way up and down the cakeCover the top of the cake using the same back and forth motion starting on the outer perimeter working your way inGood luck with your cake creationI hope(if you attempt to make this)it turns out great!                      HAPPY BAKINGIMAGES FROM PINTEREST [...]
