Dining room....the colors are fabulous, pale golds and blues
A few close ups when its not as sunny......
The "darker side" of the dining room rug
The living room.....shown from the lighter side, its a beautiful rug too
From the dark side
Closer up of the dining room
Put this beautiful french black console from Safavieh in our hallway......
And how pretty are these? Believe it or not they are resin given an old look and you can lift them with a few fingers! (will be carrying this line in my online store) About 12 inches tall, perfect for indoors or out!
You know I love your opinions...here's the current state of my closet. No top, so pay no attention to the ugly temporary wood top..am leaning towards white marble, really loved the antiqued mirror idea but it's not practical and I don't want to freak out every time I set something down on it. Any other ideas you want to throw out at me? Or do you agree with the white calcutta gold marble choice as it ties in with the bathroom right next door?
One of my dearest friends in the universe swung by and gave me such a beautiful housewarming gift..I nearly fainted it was so pretty!! Check out this magnificent domed etched cake dish! How beautiful is that? Then she gave me this fabulous crystal pitcher. I smell a batch of Sangria!
Pretty things come in big shiny gold boxes.......
A little last minute plate of munchies.....
Whoa!! How magnificent is this!!!!!!!
And this pitcher.....serious dose of gorgeous!
Almost too much pretty for one picture........
And next to my other etched cake dish..they are perfect together, like reunited sisters!
Brown with approx. 5-6 garlic cloves
Step 2. Start cooking your pasta al dente, I like Barilla thin spaghetti but any variety will do
Call me lazy but I LOVE pre peeled garlic cloves..what a cinch!
Step 3. brown really well, takes approx. 10-15 minutes
Step 5. When pasta is well drained, add pasta to the olive oil, garlic and bacon, toss well (at this point add salt and ground pepper)
Step 6. Then add your egg/Parmesan mix on top of well mixed spaghetti, immediately take off of heat and on the side and use a fork to mix thoroughly
Step 7. Once mixed very well, add about 1 to 2 TBSP of freshly cut parsley, add more fresh Parmesan on top and mix once again
Step 8.Step back and admire and get ready to feast on one decadent meal.....yummmm!
Now these pistachio sandwiches are easy peasy but oh so good. I make them when we have people over during the summer and they are such a big hit. Simple as this.....
Step 1. Thaw at room temperature for about 15 min. a pint of Haagen Daaz Pistachio ice cream
Step 2. Get a package of butter crisps or other paper thin cookie
Take the entire package off of ice cream, put chunk of ice cream on cutting board and slice in to 1/2" thick "slices" put between two butter crisps and set aside on plate.
Step 3. I take shelled pistachios and pound them into small bits and roll the edges of ice cream sandwiches for an extra delicious burst of pistachio and voila! There you have them, your very own gourmet ice cream sandwiches!
How easy is that! I neglected to take pics of the healthy part of the meal...baby arugula salad with lemon juice and olive oil and a small wedge of Parmesan. Made for one heck of a great meal!
My bookshelves always have more space for one more great book to add to my family of books. I just did a preorder on what I suspect is going to be one great book due to come out in May!! If the cover is any indication..this is going to be a homerun! Have you preordered it?
My wallpaper sagas continue......found out yesterday that the paper for my bedroom that I have been working around for a few months cannot be fulfilled in its entirety from the same dye lot and that if I want to get it it is going to now have be a custom order!! I nearly fell off my chair when she told me the price, so its now no longer "my paper". I was like a deflated balloon, it was perfect but I need a lot and they are charging a lot of money to have it custom from the mill so its a mute point. Thanks Stark. The only silver lining yesterday was I got a box in (love getting boxes) and it was my desk alcove paper! Now this made me happy. Very happy. So I promptly called my paper hanger and asked him to please come over if something frees up before the 19th. Fingers crossed...I cannot wait to see it up!
So...whats on your plate literally and figuratively? We are supposed to get to a whopping 68 degrees today! Anything exciting happening this weekend? Anything good cooking in your kitchen? Would love to hear! On that note, wishing you a fabulous Friday!!
