Wish List Wednesday: The Foodie Inside

I have to apologize for the last month of inconsistent postings.  We've had a lot going on in our personal lives with family members moving and injuries, etc so I have not been on top of my blog because I haven't even been around my computer.  So, I'm sorry- but I am on track again with some very exciting postings coming in the future!

To change things up a bit, I've decided to dedicate my Wish List Wednesday to all these fabulous (love this word but no one uses it enough!) recipes I keep seeing online that make me drool every time I come across them! These delish dishes are at the top of my list to try; maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but some of these will fill our kitchen with their wonderful aroma very, very soon...


1. Toasted Ravioli with Marinara Sauce
This recipe was posted on Jolelen's blospot and she adapted a recipe she found on

2. mozzarella, plum tomato, basil pesto grilled cheese sandwich with avocado, sweet corn, kidney bean salad
 I'm sure this recipe had been re-posted several times-the grilled cheese recipe is originally from a food network site

3. apple and brie melt
 She uses her homemade apple butter recipe on these- yes please!

4. Grilled Bruschetta Chicken
This is actually a recipe from Kraft foods that she put on her blog- who would have thunk?

5. S'mores cookies
 what can I say? Everything I love...

Recent Shows: Pictures

Here are some pictures of my booth and products from a recent show.  The venue had weird lighting so on my husband's iphone, there is a greenish hue to the pictures.  But this is the best we could do! Enjoy!

D made me get in the picture: this is right before the show started.  Needless to say, I lost the fur vest shortly after this was taken-

My new sign: homage to my fabric based cards- what could be more fitting?

All my fabric cards and note cards (all those boxes are painted now)

Wish List Wednesday: Dream Kitchen Essentials

So, I finally have chosen my colors for my future kitchen and I'm loving what I am finding out there in the both the handmade world and the mainstream. Here are my tops picks for kitchen accessories (cookware, utensils, towels, etc.) in greys, browns (wood)and blues/ocean colors. I'm thinking about adding touches of dayglo red/orange and yellow as accent colors. Fun!
