Blue and White is Back!

I am so happy blue and white is stylish again.  I have always loved it and have quite a few pieces. My dining room sideboard got a new look using old books in different shades of blue, moss balls and a house plant in cache pots and camellias in a small ginger jar. Using both light blue designs along with the cobalt color blended the blue and white in a look I love.

Grateful Giveaway Recipient

Last Christmas,  I was pleasantly surprised to be the winner of a great giveaway from Mary@ Home is Where the Boat Is. The giveaway was a sixteen piece dinnerware set of Mikasa Antique White Holiday Berries.  It is a beautiful pattern and although Mary is a hard tablescape act to follow I am giving it a shot to show my appreciation as the grateful winner.

Reflections on Previous Thanksgiving Meals

As I started thinking about Thanksgiving coming up I realized I made pics last year and never posted them. Hope you will enjoy viewing our family meal and the pics might jumpstart your planning and decorating. My mind now is in the challenge mode of coming up with something different for this year's table.

Hotel Deau ~ Beaune, France


Hotel Dieu~Beaune, France, the capitol of Burgundy. The exquisite burgundian tiles are spectacular.  Hotel Dieu was founded in 1443 by Nichols Rolin, the chancellor of the Duke of Burgundy, to help the needy. It was a small hospital until 1971. This medieval hospital is now a museum.

What do you know about persimmons?

The 2014 calendar for Fine Cooking intrigued me to learn more about persimmons.

Sharing from Fine Cooking calendar....They may look like tomatoes, but persimmons are sweet and versatile in their own way. They can have custard-like fruit with banana and mango flavors, or be firmer with apricot notes. Try them in anything from puddings and cookies to salads and salsas.
