Saturday Home Showcase

I am in love with the home I'm featuring today.  I am showcasing the home of blogger "Pawley's Island Posh".  Not only is her home fantastic but her blog is as well, she is obviously a woman with style as you will see from these pics of her fantastic home decor:

One of my fav things about this decor are the unexpected pops of animal print that she has thrown in here and there, I love to do the same thing in my home!

Get Featured: If you would like to have your home featured please send me a link to pictures and I will take a look and see if it fits my style and possibly feature you

Coming Up: Mommy Monday


Food Friday - Simple Treats

I recently discovered a few spectacular simple treats I must share.

Dip strawberries in yogurt and freeze.  This came from Glamour magazine and it's so good.  Would be great for a party, although I just stuffed my face with them while working on some orders.

This next idea is from Southern Living Magazine and I haven't tried yet but deffinitely will soon. Fruity Popsicles in Champagne.  Yummmm!

This last treat I wish I would not have discovered because I am now addicted!  These are Chocolate Paninis from Real Simple Magaine and they are amazing.  To make them even better and maybe slightly healthier I use whole grain bread filled with Nutella and add a layer of pureed fruit (strawberries, rasberries and blackberries) and then grill it in a skillet.

My New Peacock

I love peacocks and I couldn't resist this peacock when I saw it at Hobby Lobby last week, it was under $6 with the 40% off coupon I printed off their website.  I put it on my gorgeous birdcage and then threw some pinecones from my neighbors house inside it for now.  Next month I'll probably put Christmas ornaments in it, and then maybe some balls covered in moss during the spring.

Now watch this segue....

Since I'm showing the peacock in my house I'll now show off the peacocks in my Etsy shop.  Click on the picture to go to the listing.

Mommy Monday

I love blogs by other Mom's because I get to find awesome ideas like this from Random Thoughts Of A Supermom.  When my little princess gets bigger and starts creating little works of art I will deffinitely be doing something similiar to what she did in her hall (shown below) to display her children's artwork

As a Mommy here are a couple of my new favorite Etsy shops.

I love Knotty Baby Wear - she has adorable baby leggings at great prices.  Felicity has 3 pairs of her leg warmers and I think she needs more!  Here's Felicity wearing one of her pairs of Knotty Baby Leggings.  (The hat she's wearing is made by me and can be found in my Etsy Shop)

I have recently discovered Blueberry Junkie through her blog - she has the cutest hats, along with some other children's items.   I love her stuff.  I'm thinking I need to get Felicity a hat from this shop for Christmas.  here are a couple examples of what you will find in her shop.

Saturday Home Showcase

Every Saturday on my blog I am going to showcase a home with a style I love and find inspiring.  The first home showcase is from Better Homes & Gardens - I recently came across this on their website and was thrilled they were willing to let me share it.  I love this magazine and always find great ideas and inspiration in its pages.

On another note: a group of Etsy sellers are having an ONLINE OLD FASHIONED CHRISTMAS CRAFT SHOW - looks of great old fashioned items, check it out.

Also, I didn't get around to getting a picture scanned yesturday, but for Veteran's Day I wanted to share a picture of my husband in his Marine Corps days, so here it is a day late: I think this pic was taken in 2003

Coming Up: Mommy Monday!

GET FEATURED: If you would like to have your home featured on my "Saturday Home Showcase" please contact me.

Food Friday - Berries & Avacado

First I have to say.... HAPPY VETERANS DAY to my amazing husband (Veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps) and all the other brave men and women who step up to serve our country!

Now on to food.....
My eating habits are not perfect but nutrition is a pretty big deal to me.  White flour and white bread are not allowed in my house, I don't have any white refined sugar in my cabinets and things like crisco and margarine are banned from my kitchen. 

I appreciate simple (if it has more than 8 ingredients I probably won't cook it) and healthy foods.  Although I often indulge in stuff I shouldn't eat!

Berries with Balsamic Vinegar & Brown Sugar
This is my new fav snack when I'm craving something sweet.  I got this from Martha Stewart's website a while back and love it.  You just throw together whatever berries you have and sprinkle with a little brown sugar and toss with a very small amount of balsamic vinegar.

I love avacados and am always trying to find something new to do with them.  Last night I put together this simple little toasted meal.  I put some swiss cheese, avacado and sliced tomatoes on whole grain bread then put it in the oven until the bread was lightly toasted and everything was warm and delicious!
Here's Felicity eating her avacado and tomatoes.  She loves avacados, spinach, asparagus and all kinds of other things most kids don't like.  When she was a baby she loved avacado so much that the only way I could get her to eat the baby rice cereal was to mix it with avacado then put it all back in the avacado shell and feed it to her out of that!

Christmas Decorating

I'm trying to get my game-plan together for my Christmas decor at my house and getting tablescape ideas for a local Christmas banquet I'm coordinating.  I was looking online for some inspiration and wanted to share some of the wonderful things I found.

I like this fun card display idea from BHG.
Fork It Over
I will deffinitely be making some of these Christmas trees / Tomato cages wrapped in Christmas lights to put on my front porch.

I plan on doing something similiar to this Bower Power Blog idea of hanging ornaments from your dinning room light.  I'll probably use some colorful funky ornaments though.

If I have enough time I would like to make some of these ornaments featured on Flea Market Style.  I will probably use sheet music though.

For the Christmas banquet I'm thinking about using a collection of mason jars and different sized vases on the tables and doing something like this idea from BHG.

Last I have to add this picture of my little Felicity making silly faces last year at Christmas.  She was only 6 months old last year at Christmas - it seems like it was just yesturday, once you become a parent it's like time just goes in fast-forward!

Coming Up: Tomorrow is my new "Food Friday" and Saturday is "Home Showcase Saturday"
