a brunch weekend

I think this weekend will be a good one for brunch foods. I am going to try this Blueberry French Toast Casserole. It sounds amazing.

it's coming

Only one more day until Halloween decorations can legitimately come out of storage. I am excited, are you?

for the children

Here are a couple of things I have seen this week that I think are awesome:
Land of Nod has chalkboard map wall decals. I want one for my study.
I saw this dollhouse on Little Green Notebook, she bought it to revamp for a dollhouse challenge she is participating in. Even in its run down state, this has got to be the coolest dollhouse I have ever seen. I can't wait to see what she does with it!

a raspberry weekend

This weekend my brother and I decided it was time to make some raspberry jam in the traditional fashion of my mother and grandmother. Costco had some beautiful raspberries.
And we turned those raspberries into 19 bottles of delicious jam.

Luckily, we had some leftovers which I used to make some raspberry lemonade and raspberry coffee cake, they were also delicious. And after all that I am still not sick of raspberries, in fact I will probably buy some more the next time I go to Costco.

coolest shower ever?

I saw this shower that a friend pinned earlier this week and I haven't been able to get it out of my head. The tiles change color with warm water or radiant heat. How much more fun would showering be with the tiles changing color as you go?

going western

It appears that western themes are infiltrating the fall looks and I love it.

jackie o

I watched the Diane Sawyer special Jacqueline Kennedy in her own words. It was fascinating and leaves me with an urge to read the transcripts.

I have been thinking lately about getting a sewing machine. If I ever take the plunge I want my thread displayed like this.

container garden

Now that the blistering Texas heat is almost over (and by over I mean getting under 100 degrees) I am almost ready to start my container gardens. My brother tells me that here in Texas people plant their tomatoes twice a year, once in February and once in September. I figure the same rule of thumb applies to flowers. Here are some of my inspiration pictures for my containers this year.

music art

Enlarged, framed music is completely awesome. Especially if paired with a good old fashioned upright. One day in the far away future...
