Sunday Shopping & Update on Apron Giveaway

Good Sunday Morning!  Before I go any further let me say if you have left a comment hoping to enter in the Apron Giveaway for tomorrow and I have not left you a comment on your blog, rest assured your name is in the jar.  Blogger and one other blog server is giving me fits with comments.  I don’t know if it is Mozilla or what but I cannot figure it out!  I am reading and looking at your blogs though and THANK YOU! Thank you for the shout outs and thank you for the enthusiasm.

Now a little shopping talk. Have any of you ever perused Polyvore? If not, get yourself over there and take a look around.  Polyvore is a free, easy-to-use web-based application for mixing and matching images from anywhere on the web. It is also a vibrant community of creative and stylish people.No, you don’t buy anything there…but you can certainly find things to buy.  Which of us wouldn’t find something in this we love?

Or what about this?

farmpolyvore2Yeah, it is a pretty cool place to get ideas!  And sources.  Oh, you very welcome! Enjoy!

And this is on my birthday list:

14211Got the bike…need the basket!  It can be found here.

The weekend is almost over.  I have sewing to do so I will get busy.  Have a great day and check in tomorrow for the winner of the aprons.  Oh…and you have until noon tomorrow to get your name in the jar.  I will draw names tomorrow afternoon.

I ended up not making the Yorkshire Pudding last night.  Remember how I always remind you to read over recipes BEFORE you begin?  Well I should have made them before I started the rest of my meal.  They take a while to bake, and by the time I got them ready, the roast would have been dry and cold!  So look for those in an upcoming Friday Baking challenge!

I will be taking pictures of pumpkins soon.  They are just now sprouting. I would have liked to have them in the ground two weeks before I did, but the weather was just too harsh and we needed a little rain.  But they are finally coming up!

Have a good one and see you soon!

Sunday Shopping

I am up drinking my coffee and window shopping this morning.  Waiting for Rachel to rise and shine!

Today is a big day.  It is her first catering job where we are not only making all the goodies and beverages but we are setting up and serving as well.  So…we will be off and running soon.  This gig is for a piano recital/reception and I think it will be lovely!  I am sure Rachel will be posting ALL about it very soon.

So back to the window shopping ~ I found this cool sight called Polyvore. First thing I run across is this OH SO CUTE plaid/prairie/apron dress:

Pretty darn cute and only 2,750.00 Euros.  WOW what a bargain…NOT!! I can make this dress, can’t you? Anyway, when I stumbled on this I then searched “prairie” on this site and oh…cute ideas!  VERY cute.  Here are a couple of things I want to try and make or find a pattern for:

But instead of me taking up space showing you everything I LOVED on this site…go here…and see for yourself!

Before I run off to help Rachel, I wanted to show you one more place I found last night.  My oldest daughter is an enabler just in case you didn’t know this.  She knows good and well not to send me etsy shoppes to look at.  She knows I need to stay away from there but NOOOO, she IM’s me this shoppe.

orangeginghamI am a bit hung up on the gingham this morning.  Oddly enough, the dress I am wearing today to the recital and reception is black gingham!

Okay…I will leave you with one more site to peruse.  Sucre just go look around.  SO much inspiration.  I love LOVE LOVE zakka.  I do.  What’s not to love about this look?

sucreI know right?  ADORABLE!

I hope to get  pictures of the lovely gifts my friends, Karen and Tami brought me Friday evening when they stopped by for coffee.  They had been antiquing.  I was supposed to go, but with the family stuff going on, and catering jobs, I just couldn’t.  How sweet that they brought me goodies…one of which is a vintage apron that you have GOT TO SEE!! And the most adorable chicken pot holders!

They also got to sample Rachel’s homemade/from scratch/even the sauce/even the crust pizza that was waiting for me when I got home from the funeral home Friday afternoon. She will be posting her recipe and pictures on her own blog.

Have a sweet day everyone.
