Hippity Hoppity!

Easter is tomorrow and my little girl asked me last night why the Easter Bunny hasn't brought her the little sugar eggs you can look into for the past few years!?  Yikes!!  I don't remember where I found them?? I'm on the hunt now!!  My house is all decorated but I need to stuff the eggs for the hunt in the morning!  I'm making an English Trifle to take to my sister in laws house!  If it turns out to be fabulous I'll take photos and add the recipe for you!!  Happy Easter!

Finding My Vision


Finally, more and more, I'm becoming more clear on my design aesthetic.  My front room is coming together in my mind!  My color palette is muted tones of beige & blue-green.  I just got back the framed antique prints of Paris (my favorite city in the world) and they are stunning framed!  I only have 3 and am searching the web for just the perfect 4th to complete the wall!  I'll add a photo for you soon. 
I went to the fabric store yesterday and found gorgeous swatches of drapery & upholstery fabrics to form my story board...I've ticky tacked them to the wall so I can stand back and look at them.  I'm actually getting quite excited about having it all come together!  I'll keep you updated on my progress!

If It's Good Enough For A Princess~~

I've been hearing a lot lately about this new diet craze from a French Dr. called The Duken Diet.  Kate Middleton has reportedly been on this diet to prepare for her upcoming wedding.  I think she's always looked fabulous and hardly needed to lose weight but ,nonetheless, the diet has taken off and has just hit here in America.  I'm not big on fad diets but, due to the white hot popularity of this one, I thought it would be worth taking a look at.  I live in a very hot city so for the next 8  months it would be wise to be in the best shape possible so I can skirt around town in comfortably cool clothes!  As a vegetarian I'm not sure I can do this high protein diet but perhaps I can use eggs & beans instead of the animal proteins...I don't know.  It's working well for Kate.  I'll order the book and report back to you with what I find!  Here's to your health!  ;)
