When a Sure Thing Isn't Such a Sure Thing-ish

I tend to play it safe while baking/cooking using faithful familiar family recipes.  As I've grown older, I have become more adventurous with trying new recipes.

I recently baked a lovely bread pudding.  Oh so delicious!

The first bread pudding I ever tasted many years (30+ years) ago was made by my mother-in-law. Well, let's just say that I didn't have a second serving.  In fact, that was the last time I had bread pudding... until I baked my own.

Dressing to Delight Your Heart

~ ~ ~
Clothing is an expression of who you are. I have decided that life is too short not to wear patterns that delight my heart.

Today I am mixing a woodland fox pattern dress on top of a brown floral dress.  The brown floral is a longer dress with a ruffled bottom.  The ruffles show just a bit under the fox dress. The dresses fall about mid-calf and I think my brown ankle boots will look cute with this outfit.

I added a chocolate brown t-shirt underneath to add some warmth. Here you can see some of the floral buttons and lace. The woodland dress has deep pockets in the front. I do love pockets!

Do you like to mix patterns?
What are your favorites?

A Return Home

It has been a while since I've last written.  I have been away visiting family and friends in North and South Carolina.  I purposely left my computer behind as to have less distractions.

We drove through almost every type of weather imaginable.  The icy rain was my least favorite especially going over the mountains in Virginia.  We made it safely there and back again and it feels so good to be home.
