New Post

Yes, I know I said I was taking a break, but I couldn't resist posting this pic and letting you know how much I want a few chickens. Yes, my dog will try to eat them and my city says they can't live in my yard, but I REALLY want some feathered friends and their early morning calls and delicious fresh unborn baby eggs (Ok I might have pushed it with that last one). I would name them all old fashioned names like Irma, Ethel, and Maude and we will live a happy human and chicken existence!

Oh, how I love How About Orange's paper medallion tutorial. They are adorable and as usual, her instructions are clear and easy to follow. I think these would be fun used as name tags at a bridal or baby shower, too.

Today's Fri-DIY will be the last post for awhile. I've been in a creative slump, as my lack of posts probably conveys. So, I'm going to take some time to gear back up before I get back to posting, probably starting up again in summer. Have a happy spring!

Meatless Monday - Assorted Links

I'm in a between seasons cooking rut. It's too spring-like to cook my winter favorites, but it's not quite spring enough to get my hands on any fabulous produce yet. So, here's a few meatless recipes from my epicurious recipe box that I have been meaning to try.

Beet and Pear Napoleons with Ginger Juice Vinaigrette
(it just looks so pretty!)

Mini Provolone Popovers

Zucchini, Lemon, and Ricotta Galettes

Orzo, Green Bean, and Fennel Salad w/ Dill Pesto

Fri-DIY Wallpapered Table

Spring has finally hit the South. It makes me want to open every window and change everything in the house. So, I can't help but love this DIY makeover from guest poster Abby Matthews over at Craftynest.

Happy Spring!
