Lovely Katherine's Lovely Home...

Yesterday, I un-hermited myself after two weeks of
straight painting. I went to visit my friend Katherine in her lovely
new home. I love it because she had so much color added
right at the beginning. Most of the main floor is this soft yellow
with white trim. Notice her beautiful, black, iron balustrade. It
is so elegant. The white cupboards in the kitchen are really
lovely with the black dining table and black and white
marble counter-tops. Pay special attention to the
rock fireplace in the last picture because Katherine
did the rock work herself.
Katherine, thank you for the wonderful lunch.
It was so fun to visit with you and Jess.
Your home is so lovely, which is very you.

Alpine V...

My friend made this drink. It has a fruit in it called the Alpine Sandthorn Berry which is a fruit that contains some of the omega vitamins found in fish. Amazing. I was prepared for it to taste yuck because it's a health food supplement, but it doesn't. It's really delicious. Read about it here. Good job!!!

Elephants, Hearts & Flowers... Oh My...

Michelle came by last night to show me all of these lovely things that she has made this week. I think this elephant can count as a Granny Chic item because Michelle told me that the pattern belonged to her Grandmother. My camera is not doing justice here because the detail and the color are better in real life.
Very cute Michelle! Thanks for sharing!
