Alright, I have found this beautiful kitchen that Emily Jackson shared on her blog, The Ivory Lane!  I have just two pictures here but you all need to go look at this beautiful kitchen!

What I think is interesting is that she used the La Cornue hood but did not use a La Cornue range… hmm, emily, you have me thinking… I can’t have the stove since its the price of a car, but a range hood I *can* afford. And, oh, look! It is that Darlana pendant  that I wrote about earlier this week!!

Also love her butler’s pantry area… I like the bamboo cabinets and also the dark navy color.  It is fun and refreshing.  Anyway, go look at her gorgeous kitchen! (then come back!! don’t leave, not done yet! haha!)

As it is Memorial Day weekend this weekend, here are a few of my favorite recipes for the weekend…

Mexican Street Corn Recipe. I LOVE this and eat it frequently in Summer!

 Easy last minute fruit flag you can bring to parties in a pinch!

These copycat Dole Whip pineapple smoothies are super delicious!


So this past week I went to one of those art studios where you all paint, sip on wine (or diet coke in my case), and munch on appetizers.  I had fun as I had not painted since high school.  

So here was in the inspiration picture…

And here is my masterpiece!  HAHA! I am clearly not an artist.  The people  in the picture were beyond my skill set so I excluded them. Then I added sheep for fun. 

Anyway, now I have my ugly painting just sitting around.

Have you ever been to one of those art classes?

From the Garden

This week I picked cherries from the garden! YES! The cherry trees finally ripened!!They are so incredibly tasty!  We have four cherry trees in total.  I first posted this picture on my instagram!


Just a stroll around the garden… the lavender and red roses…

The Eden Rose… going to write a post about it next week…

Eden Rose

 Here is the Queen of Sweden. Love this rose, it smells so good and has so many petals!

I always pick a few when I go on a walk in the garden…

    If you grow those beautiful flowers in the garden, who cares whether you can paint or not! I have done those classes twice. They work for me because I am a talented copier.
