I got my baby back this past week….I had missed her soooo much. Here she is arriving in the mail, from where I left her in Charleston.
So I immediately put her back to work….Twitter and Facebook, and blogging.
And I took a picture of this ’cause I thought it was pretty…I gathered up all my many bracelets(actually there are more), and arranged them in a pretty antiqued bowl that had no other seeming use…now it has something to do.
Had some friends over for dinner Saturday night…did pan-fried catfish with remoulade sauce…amazing…and did creamy grits in the slow cooker. I had never tried this before, and it worked! Took about 2-ish hours.
And we started with oysters on the half shell…some Choptank sweets from Whole Foods….not inexpensive, but soooooo clean! These babies had been scrubbed…
So clean, that I took some of them and used them for other things…like salt, and vitamins!(Yes I washed them first!) But as Nate Berkus says, using designs from nature you can never go wrong.
Planted a new succulent garden…I adore the way these look, all the different textures and shades of green. They just look to chic to me, especially when they fill in a little.
And here’s the topiary I dragged home from a Charleston Piggly-Wiggly…I had to have it, and now it’s in its new pot, outside. It would have been sad if it had died after all that….
