Welcome Guests

It's so nice to have a welcome house guest...enough to motivate one to try their hand at cake pops.  Too bad they were very unimpressive looking, otherwise I would have posted a photo or two. 
Here's to small acts of service!

Thinking these days....

...of having children and being a mom, what it means to parent a child.  And am filled with squishy, lovey, warm feelings.  And maybe a little bit of fear, only where the laboring is concerned.  Anything worth having takes hard work.  Amen!

Children's Rooms: Then & Now

I found the image below on HGTV's website which is a great resource for home design inspiration.  I have files and files of images I've found from the "rate my space" sections over the last couple years that I hope will guide me as we move forward in life and someday have a nursery and...a real dining room!  *shock*  Those are really two rooms of a home I look forward to.

Girls on the Telephone

I've always been one of those girls that really enjoys talking on the phone.  In fact, once I get started, I have a hard time pressing that ominous red "end" button.  There are some people that I can just jump from topic to topic and never tire of their opinions on whatever the subject may be. 

For those ladies in my life...much love to y'all!!!

Yo gabba gabba, blabba...

Careful Planning

Housework, cooking, providing for your family to any degree takes careful planning.  This planning is what I enjoy most about housework because one can survey, prepare the spirit for the endeavor, organize, and then delve in to realize a desired outcome.  It is so engaging and measurable in that it lifts not only your own heart, but those around you.  Let's all sing a Happy Working Song now, shall we?  *smile*

What Happened to Color

It's not particularly en vogue to decorate with vast expanses of color right now, but I swoon over vintage kitchens, with their color themes.  I tend to like reds and yellows in kitchens for the country feel it gives them.  I remember the first time I saw Monet's buttercup yellow kitchen at Giverny and nearly had a fit it oozed with warmth and character that only color can impart into a room.
