Sometimes I forget how much I like red…but now I remember!

By the way, you should check out a new blog…TuTu Divine. These girls ooze personality and they had a post about lavender yesterday that got me wanting to run down and buy lavender paint (wait till you see the kitchen in their post…). I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for us!


Linear Centerpieces

I don’t know why, but I usually prefer long tables to round ones and multi-piece linear centerpieces to single arrangements…my husband would say that’s because multi-piece centerpieces cost more. What do you prefer?

So what do you think? Like linear centerpieces? I’m pretty sure this says something about me…I like things lined up and orderly…

Hope your Tuesday is a great on!

Hot, Hot, Hot…Pink!

It’s a new week and we’re off to a bold start!

On a personal note: You may have noticed that I was absent for a few days last week. I spent part of last week with my mom at MD Anderson Cancer Hospital in Houston. She had surgery for melanoma. I was so impressed with MD Anderson…the skill of the doctors and staff, the compassion shown by everyone from the valet parking attendant to the surgeon, and the precision with which the hospital is run each day. If you or a family member ever needs cancer treatment (and I pray you don’t), I would highly recommend MD Anderson. And as we move into summer…l hope you’ll join me in wearing sunscreen…the tan just isn’t worth the risk, in my opinion.
