I had never heard that about the fridge, since we see the wine racks above a fridge quite often had not thought of it. Our wine at home is in a wine cabinet and on the patio level of our home. We aren't living in this apartment yet, we are just in the process. This is a temporary place until we buy a new home. That is why it looks so clean.;-)

Aha, Nancy. I knew sooner than later someone would figure it out!:-) We love Winghaven and would love to build there or buy a home. This apartment is serving two purposes. It's giving us a little getaway place while our home is marketed, plus we are trying on Winghaven.

Thank you, Martina. This is an apartment we leased for 6 months. We are preparing our house to sell and decided, with J's health issues, we needed a place to escape to, during the process. We won't be here full time, but rather use it as a getaway. We are prepared to sign on for another 6 months if needed. We have the house almost ready for the sign in the yard. Moving very slow this time!:-)
I don't know the name. I found them at the grocery store and didn't see a sticker. I wish I could grow them like these.:-)

Thanks so much Carol Jane. I found the canvas at Home Good about three or four years ago.
We are going to try to get our house on the market by the end of July first part of August. We leased an apartment to "retreat" to, plus we need a place to stay while we look for another home if our house should sell. We are prepared to rent for at least a year if we need to. This table is set up in the small apartment we leased.
Thank you so much, Emily. The cloth is a picnic throw from Williams Sonoma a couple of years ago. The napkins are from Pottery Barn, this year.
Gerry, I had one of those 12x60's after my divorce. Had it looking so cute...and definitely on a budget!:-)
It's wonderful,Kat. Also, the recipe suggests the addition of vodka or gin to turn the drink into a cocktail.

That is correct, lemon juice curdles milk. But it doesn't with this recipe. I don't know why, unless it is the sugar that keeps it from "going sour". I don't know what it will do if milk substitutes are used. But the milk does not sour with this recipe.

Thank you Carolyn. I found those chairs at Pier One Imports about 10 years ago. They were available for sale in single colors or you could mix them up, as I chose to do.

Thank you Susan. Just chop the lemons peel and all. This is a really tasty drink.:-)

Thank you Cheryl Ann... The chest has napkins and things like that in it and they will stay in the chest. There is another chest/cabinet in the dining room that will stay. It has this and that table setting things stored in it.

Sounds like a plan, Pattie. I looked for the BBQ place Sunday. We drove on Elm Point coming back. It was probably right in front of me and I didn't see it.

Brenda...we have one of those turkey fryers around here someplace. We used it a few times on the farm, but not here at all. That is a great idea, because it can hold more. It would be fun to do this when the kids are here. It was easy to adapt to a smaller boil, using one of our deep stock pots with a basket.

Thanks so much, Candy! I seem to remember finding the hat at Michael's last year. Had no idea what I would do with it when I bought it. I just knew I liked it. Then I thought flowers...why not.:-)
Debbie...the mats are a homespun type fabric,sort of heavy. I bought them at Old House in Hog Hollow, St Louis. Old House sells Folk Art and primitives etc. I'm sure this type of mat can be found in shops that sell folk art etc.

Thank you, Donna! I love the Village pattern and have some of the metal accessory pieces. I also have a wooden box with lid that has the punched tin insert, in the Village pattern. Village is perfect for Fall.

Doreen, I worked in the China,Crystal,Silver,Linens department of Famous Barr in St Louis, during the early 80's. Part of my time there I assisted brides and others select their china etc. Bridal Registry was in my department. That was a May Company store, that is now Macy's.

Thanks Dana! Pretty cold over here on the east side too! I kicked on the furnace this morning. The thought of getting in the shower made me shiver. It was 60 degrees in the house. We like it cool in the house(under 70) but not that cool!;-)

Thank you Deb! Almost all our irises are from J's Aunt Ruth. I don't know how many we have, but there are several. Very special because they are Aunt Ruth's.

Pappa Fabarre's French Onion soup...the best! Last time I had that was over 25 years ago when the mall was open Downtown. The stores don't seem the same these days, since they aren't FB anymore.:-)

Sandy, it was Tractor Supply in Troy. You can probably find them at Orscheln, as well.
