And it happened again....

See this pan?  It's going in the garbage....


...because it happened again...


...not as bad as this time... 


...but I scream"UNCLE" and I admit defeat...


...as I "glued" it back together with lemon icing....


...and screamed a few curse words....


...I laughed because I don't have to wash the pan!


Don't bother sending me all your tips and tricks - the pan is GONE!

So my new mantra:



Now I feel better and I think I will have a piece of lemon cake!

Winter White...

The decorations are put away, the house is clean and bright, and I have pulled out a lot of "white":



I LOVE Milk Glass.

Fenton Hobnail, Westmoreland dishware, the Indiana Grape pattern, Imperial bowls, Fostoria fruit dishes and so on....


....There is something about it that reminds me of my past...


....I have a variety of pieces, 24 dinner plates, enough for the family dinners....


...and a few special pieces, some were from my home growing up....


...like these dessert dishes...


....and some I have had since my first apartment, many years ago...


...some I purchased in thrift stores...


...and some I have collected for years, like six of these hens, which are perfect for soups, stews and chicken salad...


...the detail on milk glass is so pretty...


...and all of it makes for a cute table setting for lunch...


...the white Luminara candles brighten up the coffee table at night...


...a cute gifted initial plate brightens up an end table...


...a white topiary cheers up the kitchen table...



...and the white books are ready to bring on the next season!



AND we even have lots of snow outside to match my decor!

Do you collect milk glass?  I'd love to see your collection!

Snow. snow. snow.....

During the month of January I pull out a few snowmen to go along with our snowy NY winter.

My table is set for the two of us with little snowman dishes...


...and a snowman cookie jar as a centerpiece...


...he was given to me years ago and i just adore him.


I have anchored the table with Courtly Check dishes.



It seems to snow almost every day in Central NY...


...kids love it...


...but the older I get...


...I want it to be warm and sunny...


...I think we need to plan a vacation and head south!

Peace, Harmony and Happiness ....



 The color WHITE signifies Peace, Harmony and Happiness, a wish I have for you in 2018.  

With this in mind,  I set our new sparkly tray with all "white" for a New Year's Eve toast and snack:


I made "Cha Cha Chicken Salad" for a party on New Years Day and set some aside for us to try with our NYE toast!


New Years Eve day was spent at the movies - we saw The Greatest Showman On Earth and I highly recommend seeing it, and then we went out for an early dinner.

We came home to bring in the new year quietly, just the two of us!


The recipe for "Cha Cha Chicken Salad" is from Home is Where the Boat Is and is delish!

Happy New Year!

Christmas Quiche...


I made a Spinach and Cheese Quiche for breakfast on Christmas morning - and added tomatoes the last few minutes of baking....


...and we "flavored" the coffee with Bailey's or Asbach brandy!


A great way to start the day!
