Ad Hoc at Home is a new fab cookbook by Thomas Keller. Leslie made the brownies which were SO "yummo" (Jill). I gave this book to Annie. She made the grit cakes and said the dish was out of this world. I just got my copy in the mail and am savoring every recipe....The photographs are mouth watering and graphics...so clever. There are also really good tips like how to cut up a chicken. If you love to cook and eat.... this book is a must have!
Veasyble: art by four lovely italian ladies What: set of objects that are wearable with a simple gesture can be turned into shells of isolation. As is done: coupled with paper and polyethylene fabric. Objects: cap, ruff, bag, mask Keywords: Isolation, Ornament, Revelation, Intimacy.
Just found these photographs taken at the most beautiful baby shower my dear friends had for me and Piper back on a glorious Sunday this past September. Everyone baked and cooked and presented the delicious food...Jayne made her decadent teeny cookies & bars and deviled quail eggs. Tracy made enough appetizer foodies to feed an army & she made the prettiest flower arrangements with flowers from her garden. Mae baked the prettiest mini cupcakes. Mama Gina made my fave...spanish tortilla. Georgia made baby shower favors: chocolate covered raisins in baby food jars with sweet labels and painted lids. Gretchen hung flags and created the sweetest invitations. Leslie was the hostess with the mostest with her castle by the pond. She made little cups of cold potato & leek soup and lots of other yummy goodies. It was perfection!
I have been meaning to write about these fantastic cards by paper monkey press for a long time....these personalized flat & sturdy note cards are the best. Piper's thank you cards are yellow all caps. The cards come with craft colored envelopes. The nice folks at the press always send a little treat with your order...check out here.
I owned and operated an art studio for children, paper scissors oranges in Darien, Connecticut for a decade. I keep my eyes wide open for inspiration....I am happy to share what I love, do and find here.
