LYN DEVON

This is my fall outfit!  I'm not doing any shopping this fall unless it's a vintage piece I can't pass up.  This amazing sweater and leather skirt are from the very talented Lyn Devon.  I met Lyn at a trunk show in Dallas, and she showed me through her entire fall line.  Everything was beautiful–but these [...]

DRAPE

Most amazing 80's, silk jersey dress by Becky Bisoulis.       I love the color of this dress, the voluminous sleeves and covered buttons–and of course, the shoulder pads!

OUR CHAIRS THIS YEAR

Once again this year Jane, Carol and I donated chairs to the Branded Auction.  I purchased the chairs at a consignment store and had them recovered in plain canvas, and the very talented children at Cook Children's Hospital turned them into works of art!  For more information about Branded go here.  Last year over $200,000 was [...]

CAROLS BANANA BREAD

I hope everyone isn’t tired of cooking posts.  I promise to get back to other things–and, my cooking partner just went back to school.  The cooking posts will definitely slow down, but we still plan on keeping busy in the kitchen.  Carol even made the most delicious soup in the slow cooker before she went [...]

MORE KITCHEN LOVE

I absolutely love this kitchen!  Borrowed from Desire to Inspire.  I'm starting on my own kitchen this week.  I don't think I will be able to achieve this look, or even close to it, but I am doing a little repainting, and re-doing the tile work on the backsplash, and a new light fixture.  I [...]

MARTHA’S LEMON BARS VERSUS AUNT GAIL’S LEMON BARS

I love homemade lemon bars–who doesn't?  Traditionally in my family, we  have always used a tried and true recipe from my Aunt Gail.  Recently, Carol challenged this tradition by using Martha Stewart's lemon bar recipe.  She felt is was better.  After much debate about the attributes of each recipe, we decided to have a lemon [...]

FOUND

I loved seeing Drew Barrymore in this vintage Janine dress purchased in Austin for $25.  She looks incredible!   I happened to be browsing one of my favorite vintage sites this morning.  C Madeline.   Lo and behold, there was the very same dress worn by Drew Barrymore!     It's a little more than $25, [...]

KITCHEN INSPIRATION

Carol found these great kitchen pictures on line over the weekend.  I'm never very good at finding images on line.  Still deciding about my own kitchen, but one thing for sure—-definitely painting my cabinets white.  Right now they're kind of a yucky pine color.  Todd came by this morning, and thought we might be able [...]

SPAGHETTI WITH BROCCOLI, WALNUTS, AND RICOTTA

This is the third recipe I've tried from my new book, Market Vegetarian.  You can view it here.  We all really liked this one.  It called for regular spaghetti, but we substituted whole wheat spaghetti.  The fresh lemon zest was wonderful!   There was lots of fresh garlic.   The toasted walnuts were an excellent addition.
