Dresser make-over… sneak peek!

I have a few days left to find ‘the perfect knob(s)’ for Katie’s dresser before she heads back to East Lansing!!! Y I K E S ! !


A touch of gray… to go-with her ‘refinished desk’.


A flea market find last summer… waiting for the right opportunity.


For Katie’s apartment/bedroom. Still looking, searching, for the right drawer knobs!??

Rose Petal Jam

I came across a recent article about rose petal jam by  Sylvia Fountaine, chef and owner of Feast Catering and was i m m e d i a t e l y intrigued!! I knew I had to steal away a few hours [before the hub-bub of Fair] to make this decadent concoction!!


My rugosa roses provided the necessary main ingredient: pesticide-free rose petals. The recipe was shared by Tonia Schemmel here.

I must agree… this is no ordinary jam! My kitchen smelled like a perfumery.


Try it!! I think you’ll really LOVE it!
