Last year when I was planning my daughter's wedding,
I came across some beautiful wedding blogs.

I have since saved them to my sidebar.
I love to look at them for inspiration.
They have some great ideas for parties in general.
I love the tables above with their white table clothes and
brown grainsacks.
Doesn't this deck look fun for a party?

A beautiful cake.

Another beautiful cake.

And what's a party with out a pretty party dress?

except the party dress,
I can't remember where I found this image

Spring Colors

Spring is  not one of my favorite times of the year.
I love the fall, winter and if I lived by the ocean
I would love the summer, but I don't live by the ocean, 
I live in the desert. 
But even the summers beat the spring for me.
Call me weird.
I've been called worse.

I love all the colors n the pics above.
Soft and romantic.

country living

Its raining here in Arizona
and for some reason, I feel like baking.
I mean,
I feel like eating something that has been baked.
No dirty dishes, etc.
You might say,
I am just plain lazy today.

I love making garlands.

I cut out hearts from an old cookbook from the 50's and strung them
on some twine I bought at an estate sale for .25 cents.

And then hung them on an old sheepherders box that I got from
my Mom and Dad.  
The box was put on the burros that they used when they 
trailed the sheep to the cool country in the summer.
I just love its blue patina with its chippy paint.

Happy Valentine's Day!

A Super Bowl Mess

I think I used every pan in my kitchen for Super Bowl Food.
The other side of the sink that you can't see,
was full of dishes I had already washed.

Happy Monday!

If I had the time...

If I had the time and the patience,
 I would make these for the people I loved.

If my husband worked in an office,
I would definitely add these buttons to his shirt for 
Valentines Day...
Just so he could feel the love...

These would be perfect for my family.
We love to play cards.
Especially, poker...
Getting together with my Mom and Aunt and playing cards,
is my favorite thing to do...
