Thank you Kathy! How sweet of you. I think after last weeks 8” of snow, spring is finally making its appearance here in No VA. Hope it will be the same for you as well! Have a super weekend.

Hi Monica! I think of you over in Texas every time I watch the Fixer Upper show on HGTV that is filmed in Waco! I did notice that not only did the alum made my hydrangeas last a week now, the roses look fantastic too. As it dissolves in the water perhaps it benefits other flowers as well. With regard to my chalkboard, I did put it together myself as far as purchasing a frame and adding the chalkboard. However, I did not paint my chalkboard. I wanted one that would last and keep its appearance so I ordered a porcelain chalkboard cut to the size of my frame. I purchased it from Billy Boards. Here is the link http://www.billyboardsmfg.com/Frameless-Chalkboards.html Have a fun weekend!

Hi Jennifer, The key to easy entertaining is to make everything ahead that you can. The pot pie recipe I use is from the Williams - Sonoma Comfort Food cookbook. I substitute thyme for the tarragon though. You can find the recipe online herehttp://www.williams-sonoma.com/recipe/chicken-potpie-cf.html Enjoy!

Hi Linda, I have never experienced the stickiness of the tape coming through at all. However, keep in mind that I am using Alencon lace which is thicker than just a thin lace. When I place the tape around the edges on this particular lace, it is where the actual raised lace appears not just the sheer netting. If youre using a lace with a raised pattern I would suggest placing the tape where that section of the lace is. If youre purchasing a bridal lace trim by the yard, that generally is on the edge anyway. As opposed to purchasing a lace fabric that is a wider with. I always use bridal trim. Hope that helps.

How funny Monica! The cookies are cooling, waiting for me to fill them and I was just thinking where I was going to hide them so they would last until Christmas. I’ve been good so far and have only eaten a broken one!

Hi Karen! Thanks for stopping by. I have some serious blog catching up to do once all of my holiday orders are shipped. I’ve missed what’s going on with everyone. I hadn’t considered the weather, but we had a very mild summer with rain (the mildest I’ve seen in 23 years), so perhaps that’s why my holly bushes are exploding with berries. Have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones!

Hi Kimberly. I purchased it last year. Pottery Barn does have one similar this year, just not quite as large.

Thanks for the luck on the slipcover - Ill need it! So funny about your ant comment. They used to freak me out but then I read they actually remove the nectar off the buds so they open. Clever creatures - but it still makes me itch to think about it. :)

Hi Kathy! Thanks for your vote! I had not heard of petosky stones so I just looked it up and they do resemble them. I found the paper I used in a store in San Francisco, wish I had purchased more. Have a lovely weekend with your family. Like you, Im very busy in the kitchen!
