Wisteria

Wine Bottle

My Wisteria bottle holder is here after a long, long (by long I mean 4 months) wait, yippee! Wisteria was, by the way, very kind through the process. I even got a gift from them, pretty nice. No problem just glad to see it in our house. This is a bottle rack it is for holding…

Doodling

Doodle Buddy APP is my friend…sigh. See those silly little items above… Okay I draw or doodle all the time and you? Yes? No? Oh well-in church at the dentist on a placemat on top of my own notes I draw. If I have to hold still too long I’m going to draw. Someone VERY…

DIY at it’s easiest!

Hutch

A can of paint! Oh, don’t fall over I know its the oldest game in town. I just needed a quick pick me up:) It seems that my dining room is the land of wood. I love-love my table not too unique, just a 7 foot farm table (reclaimed wood) one day it too will…

Malibu

Sushi Oaks2

We had a great lunch out Friday at Sushi Oaks in Thousand Oaks if you ever have the chance try their miso soup (full of tempura bits) and the McGwire roll- it’s wonderful (asparagus, nori, ahi, rice, crispy onions,  McGwire sauce and a sprinkle of sesame seeds). Next we headed to Malibu Country Mart for…

A Few Goodies

Loved our Easter weekend relaxing, good family time! I wanted to show you some things that came this way over the weekend. Orange Easter lilly, well I think Easter lillies are usually white but this little guy was so vibrant at Trader Joe’s I had to grab it-new Anthropologie mugs so cute and loving them…

Happy Easter!

Good Friday

flower

Good Friday, when I was little I would say “what”s so good about it, it sounds horrible”. My Mother always would go into depth about it and I would feel bad, of course…of course. But it does have me thinking about today and Easter. I was thinking I wish we had dogwood trees in our…

Scones Mmmm

Scones

At least once a week my husband treats us to made from scratch scones or biscuits :) they are delicious and yes it makes us feel spoiled. They are so good on a rainy day with cup of tea or a lazy Saturday morning. This recipe makes tender light scones. I know some of those…

Easter Decorations Up!

After

I always think it’s best to put up Easter decorations before Easter ;) Okay I was a bit slow getting it done but they are up and the pink chicks got displayed. I went from creative clutter to spring celebration in an hour or so…I kept it simple, neutral backgrounds(my house seems over run with…

A Little Getaway…

PS2

We got to play taxi for teens for the Coachella Fest which meant a trip to the Palm Desert. We’ve driven through or stopped on the way to other destinations but never spent time in Palm Springs. It was hot (of course) which was a nice change from the gloomy weather we’ve been having in…
