Madeleines made with fresh lemons and white Mexican vanilla are Tall Husband's favorite sweet. What's yours?

A Stolen Magnolia

Posted by Picasa
An early morning walk with Tall Husband and our puppy always begins my day. This morning, we encountered this softly fragrant magnolia, hanging low over a path. As such a beautiful flower was too tempting to leave and no one was looking, it now sweetens the rest of our day!

A seven-month-old maltipoo and ninety-one-year-old pine floors at The Bunny Bungalow. Don't you just love the contrast?

This tiny purse covered in moss, lined in metal and plastic,was a weekend find at a nursery in our Houston Heights neighborhood. Now if I could just decide where she should perch!

A Wolf in the Kitchen!

Posted by Picasa

Alright, I'm bragging, gloating, name dropping: in my remodeled kitchen is the object of years of longing...a dual fuel Wolf range. What was the first thing I cooked? I boiled water for tea! A Wolf range is an extravagance but I rationalize by pointing out that I drive an old car. This kitchen is my new sports car and I cannot wait to drive her around the block, blow out her pipes, toot her horn...after we get through with the unpacking (are the boxes out in the garage multiplying?) So, for tonight I shame the Wolf with Kraft Macaroni and Cheese again.
