Listening/Watching Game of Thrones Eating grapes, would rather be eating bonbons! Drinking water, would rather be drinking wine! Wearing comfy clothes. Feeling a bit tired. Weather - was beautiful day today, did some yard clean up. Wanting to make a start on my sewing projects. Needing a gardener, housekeeper, chef, personal trainer etc, lol Thinking that there are just not enough hours in the weekend! Enjoying the Southworks Antique market. I found a collection of grates there for a friend.
On Pinterest, I've seen them used as a luminaries with tealights or minilights inside.
Listening to Once Upon a Time Eating had a yummy dinner of pork tenderloin,salad and sauteed celery/onion. Drinking water. Wearing jeans and a casual top. Feeling motivated to organize my closets. Weather is sunny but tomorrow they are calling for wet snow! Wanting world peace.......watched a bit of Miss Congeniality this afternoon ;) Needing to organize our backdoor closet with our coat, hats etc......I'm quite sure there are some things that I can get rid of Thinking that I should start planning the flowers for our garden planters. Maybe something like this:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, and get a baking sheet with rack ready (if no rack, just line with foil/parchment paper and drizzle with olive oil. Cut the potatoes into fries and place in a bowl of cold water to soak for a few minutes.
Drain the water and dry the fries with paper towel. Once dry, toss the fries with the olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Lay on a baking sheet in a single layer, preferably one that has a cooking rack so the fries can have the air circulating all around them (and no need to flip.) Bake for 20-25 minutes depending on your oven and how crispy you like your fries. If using a baking sheet without a rack, halfway through the cooking time, flip the fries.
I spent a little bit of time decorating for Easter this past weekend.
First a few decorations on the living room coffee table.
I purchased this new bunny at a discount store recently and he works perfectly under a cloche.
I had seen ceramic egg dishes at Pottery Barn or Anthropologie where they were outrageously priced. But I found this inexpensive one at JoAnn's. I filled it with a mix of eggs and pretty tealights that I already had.
And of course had to include my Fitz and Floyd.
I love Easter Lilies.
And on my foyer table, mercury glass candleholders mixed with spring flowers and birds.
And I was inspired to create the bunny frame by using a backing of burlap then printing and cutting out a silhouette of a bunny.
And moving into the kitchen, egg shaped dishes in a chicken wire inspired holder.
Apothecary jars filled with spring eggs.
And on the kitchen table fresh daffodils and treats placed on top of a vintage tablecloth.
Listening to Storage Wars, can't wait for Once Upon a Time to start at 7pm. Eating nothing but just finished a yummy dinner of roasted pork tenderloin, salad and baked cilantro fries(recipe to come soon!) Drinking nothing but just finished a glass of wine and am thinking about having another! Wearing old, comfy clothes. Feeling good, a nice change after a kind of down January and February. Weather is rainy but all the vegetation is greening up nicely! Wanting a laundry fairy! Needing to clean up my scrap room. Thinking that weekends are never long enough! Enjoying this little ceramic berry box that I purchased at Anthropologie.
It’s about time someone got wise to what ‘good smelling’ laundry is – who can’t resist the scent of fresh baked cookies? Purex, always in tune with what consumers want, is rolling out their freshest newest scent, fresh-baked cookies:
Laundry can be such a chore – why not have it enjoyable inhaling the scent of fresh baked cookies? I bet more people will be hanging out in the laundry room for longer periods of time, taking in the scent. Hopefully they won’t be tempted to snack on their clothes. That would be weird.
Everyone loves cookies – now maybe everyone will love doing their laundry. Thanks Purex – you never cease to amaze me with your forward thinking.
I'll definitely need to look for this the next time I need laundry detergent!
