I want to go to this party. Isn't it lovely...this being my new favorite color and all. It has become the accent color in our living room upon redecoration. It happened rather accidentally, but I love it. I love this photo from Karl Juengel. I saw it on Jordan Ferney's "Oh Happy Day."

Freezer fun.

This Beaba tray from Williams-Sonoma is made to freeze homemade baby food. But! Wouldn't it be perfect for freezing homemade pesto sauce this summer? It has 2 oz. compartments.

My Sweet Valentine.

I had a lovely Valentine's Day. We made dinner at home . . . surf and turf. Yum! Dessert was red velvet cake. My husband gave me these sweet treats. I loooove Philosophy cinnamon buns shower gel. The Dylan's scrub is also fabulous. I was much more pragmatic in my gift giving. He received a lovely ceiling fan. Nothing says love like a light fixture, right? Seriously, though, he did want it. I also gave him some vanilla bean truffles.

Magnetic personality.

Just saw these on the Litle Window Shoppe site. They are originally from How About Orange. Here are the directions from How About Orange: "Cut out bits of felt into shapes you like (I did them freehand—I think it gives them more personality than drawing on them first and making them too perfect) and then glue the layers on top of each other with craft glue. Make sure the bottom leaf layer is big enough underneath for your magnet to sit fully on it. Stick the magnet on with hot glue." Since I'm redoing the kitchen, I'll be whipping some of these up in the new colors soon!
