Simple Pleasures ~ Signs of Spring

Several few months ago on my way home from our local grocery store, I noticed a new sign, in our Peone Prairie, "FRESH EGGS". Wouldn't it be wonderful to have fresh eggs for breakfast each morning, and to walk into the hen's house with a basket to fill. I think so, but, my husband doesn't think it would be so wonderful...not yet anyway!!!

Pizza....Good for your Ever-Loving Soul

Especially when its cooked at our home by our friend Mark Starr, owner of David's

Pizza! When we think of Soul Food.... Pizza is always number #1 in our family.Mark's

pizza pies as he calls them are fabulous. His pies are not made by the book but,

rather by instinct. It's a treat to watch Mark bake Pizza, he tastes, rather than

measures the special seasonings, not a clock to tell when the pie is finished

baking, rather by the smell. These skills are hard to teach. They must be

felt....and come straight from the heart and soul.

Can you smell the pizza????

And he's funny too!

Romantic Style

Romantic Style is a Beautiful Book that will inspire you with all things delicate and vintage. The book was written by Sara Norman and photographed by Debi Treloar and styled by Selina Lake. We love Selina's bohemian style, femininity and use of color.The book is a great mix of, flirty, and colorful!!We hope you will enjoy the review as we did and the surprise of the many different takes on Romantic.

The book is split into three sections ~ Romantic Inspirations, Styling and Rooms. Loved where Selina makes it easy to see how a romantic style can soften a modern space.
