Table for Two

So what was the best thing before sliced bread?


Farmhouse Elegance

Rumor has it that the next generation of homemakers are not into fine china, silver and crystal for their farmhouse tables. What a shame! I think adding a few rustic pieces with your china or silver service makes a unique table. Here are a few examples: Vintage Farmhouse Elegance for the Modern Table A silver […]

We All Need a Little Picnic Time

How many times have you muttered under your breath, “Well, that was no picnic!”? Confrontations with loved ones, doctor visits, difficult jobs, war, cancer battles and taking care of the elderly, are all things that we would not call a picnic. But, there’s a quote that goes something like this, “So, if ants are such hard […]

CoziNest at The Daphne Antique Galleria

It’s been a dream for a long time. My sister, Kiki and I have talked about managing an antique booth for years. Almost every time we are together, we stop at an antique store, or a flea market or a thrift store. We love “rescuing” things and recycling them into new or at least prettier items. […]

Are You Dense?

Yes, I am dense. Unfortunately, I’ve been told this once a year for the last several years. Every August when I go in for a mammogram, I’m told that I have dense breasts. (I guess I should be glad they aren’t x-raying my brain!) Seriously though, this makes my risk of developing breast cancer 1.2 – […]

How to Decorate a Cocktail Bar for Fall

Day 10 of 31 Days of Tabletop Decorating:  How to Decorate a Cocktail Bar for Fall Nothing says Fall quite like a piece of apple pie with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Unless, you add a jigger of rum and blend it all in the blender.  Dessert and cocktails all in one. But before you […]

A Hot Dog Dinner on Everyday China

Day 9 – Cooking for Two with Chili My first memory of eating a hot dog is at a Middle School, Sunday School cookout. I have to say, it was love at first bite. Since that day, I’ve discovered that hot dogs aren’t that healthy for us. But, I’ve found a less unhealthy version with […]

Think You Hate Beets? So Do I!

I used to hate beets. Then I read a recipe that had walnuts, caramelized onions and goat cheese baked into a beet tart. Guess what? I still hate beets! So why am I writing about a recipe I hate? Two reasons. To encourage all beet haters. You aren’t alone! And… To suggest an alternative ingredient with […]
