Champagne (need I say more)?

      A woman should never be seen eating or drinking, unless it be lobster salad and Champagne, the only true feminine and becoming viands

      Lord Byron

I don't agree with ol' Lord Byron on the exclusivity of this statement, as I think a woman should be seen eating or drinking any food she darn well pleases... as long as she is using her proper manners - this is the South, y'know. ;o)  However, I do agree with the passion for Champagne that his comment reveals.

My Candy Creations

Almost two weeks ago we threw a party for my daughter’s 1st birthday and our theme was a Sweet ONEderland. So candy was at the center of this party, I’m talking gum drops, lollipops and tootsies galore. I’ll give you the full scoop on this shindig from the cake to the invites next time I blog, but thought I’d share how we crafted some of the decorations in this post. My mother-in-law is very creative and came up with two very clever ideas I absolutely adored… her first idea was to craft candies in a wrapper using disposable bowls, a little white tissue and pretty cellophane paper, and her second fabulous idea was to create little lollipops with Styrofoam balls, dowels and colored tissue paper. These came out so cute and were so easy to make I just had to share with our readers.

Like Baby, baby, baby, oh...

So far this 2012, we Georgians have been enjoying some mild and pleasant winter weather.... until today. Boy, is it windy and cold out there! I hope you are all snug in your homes, wrapped in blankets, snuggies, or - dare I say? -

Have you heard of Houzz?

So just the other day my husband informed me of this great site called Houzz, and I must say if you’re a design enthusiast it can be quite addictive. It’s basically a collection of interior design and decorating ideas and I thought it may be of interest to those who follow our blog since we touch on these things from time to time. Professionals such as architects, general contractors, interior designers, landscape artists, etc, post pictures of their recent projects where others can collect these photos by adding them to their ideabooks.
