Weekend Reading

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

Happy Friday everyone! We’re starting on a new DIY project this weekend and these little furniture feet will be part of the creation. How funny that some of you thought they resembled silver julep cups, so did I! I’ve never been to the Kentucky Derby but it’s on my “things to experience in life” list – anyone attending the events year?


In lieu of a trip to Churchill Downs, join in on the fun with a trio of mint juleps like these three versions!

A few links I enjoyed this week . . .

Weekend Reading

Saturday, April 19th, 2014

Ugh, the last 48 hours have been so emotionally draining. Between the sad passing of a family friend and more site security issues, I’m feeling so so worn out. I want to go into detail about what’s been happening with the site, it’s an awful thing and a very sophisticated attack but I’d bore you with the coding issues. I’ve got people who know a lot more than me helping me figure this out, I really appreciate your patience.

I’m trying to stay positive – at least my favorite viburnum bush is in bloom, and I look forward to the bouquets every April. The puffy blooms inspired a little vignette with some new watercolor art and favorite baubles from the past: sea floats and shells.
