This afternoon, as I sit down at my desk, it's 40 degrees, damp and foggy. The new-old house has turned into an adventure, one that I am welcoming with open arms.
As I change the house, it is changing me. Here are the highlights of my week: Decorating Diary: Or the Argh Files and When a Room Turns Churlish. The Master Gardener class is helping me learn about the natural world--and myself. I began to realize this when I wrote Slice of Life on the Hilltop.
I'm looking forward to visiting with you at Foodie Friday and Everything Else. It's my pleasure to share a few highlights from last week's party:
Even though spring is on the way (eventually!), we crave comfort. Learn how to create warmth in your life over at To Simply Inspire.
I loved reading about the story behind the leopard print pillows in Debra Oliver's living room. Years ago, I had a booth in an antique mall--I think we are soul mates. You'll enjoy reading her post at Common Ground.
Don't miss the epic bathroom transformation by Urban Jane. The before and after photos are amazing.
As a Louisiana native, I have a weak spot for Muffulettas and pecan bars. They are perfect all the time, especially for potlucks and picnics. You'll find a wealth of information, photos, and food history at the delightful blog, Salmagundi.
I'm enjoying another delightful blog, Garden Thyme with Diana. Hop on over and say hello to Diana.
If you are planning your menu for St. Patrick's Day, you will adore the clover deviled eggs by Happier Than a Pig in Mud.
The Foodie Friday and Everything Else Link Party Guidelines:
***Older posts are welcome. *
**No limit on the number of posts. Post as many links as you wish.
***No "rules," except one: in order to be featured, your photos must be your own. ***Everyone is welcome.
***You are cordially invited to share your blog posts: recipes, DIY projects, gardening adventures, tablescaping, decorating ideas, home remodeling, nest fluffing, fashion, family life, pets, time management, photography, health tips, blog tips, nutrition, nature, shopping, travel, and everything else.
***To add a link, find the blue Inlinkz icon in the lower, left-hand portion of this post. Click on the icon and follow the directions, which includes selecting a thumbnail image. After you complete the process, you may see a red "x" (or mark) beside your name. This allows you to delete your link if you've made an error; the red "x" is visible to you only.
***If you see a thumbnail you like, please visit the participating blog to "pin" photographs. If you need more assistance, an UPDATED guide to the linky party is available here. **Share your food photos with a larger community at Top Food Bloggers on Pinterest. Send me a message @ Pinterest if you'd like to join (so I'll be sure to see your request--otherwise, it may get lost in the feed, and I don't want to miss your note).
