Food for thought~
When I saw Linda's IG post about this Apple Fritter Bread on IG..I knew I had to..make it:)So I went to where she sent me:) Here.
When I saw Suzie's IG post ..I knew I had to go to her blog and get the recipe!
my fave learning curve♥
And these were delicious too!
From Diane Morrisey on IG again.
This flat bread from Adonis..toasted w/ roasted tomatoes..garlic ..honey..and a baked goat cheese round..I love Nonna's balsamic Glaze Drizzle to bits.
Below..my new FAVE date squares..for now;)
I have been making date squares for 45 yrs..so many versions..
this one w/ coconut..in the crumble..and butter in the filling..caught my eye.
You can find the recipe ..here..
This chintz loving light loving yellow loving girl has a hidden secret:)
We have a Game..of Thrones..ish dining room.
perfect for darker moody looks..lol
Lots of windows..gratefully..
Chair backs and drawer pulls..that green paint..my mom was an artist..is it hers?
I am so INSPIRED lol by all the dark and moody shots on IG..
So the only area that can be dark and moody here ..really..is our dining room.
It has followed me ..all the days of my life..
It followed my dad..all the days of his life..
His dad..would be maybe 130 yrs old?
As my dad would be..107..so his dad would be more.
I never met him..my grandfather..
But I do know he was well known..well loved..accomplished.
The dining room set we have had for 46 yrs..belonged to my mom and dad..
He had inherited it from his dad..the judge..
M.Le Juge ..used this table..chairs..buffet and an ornate beveled glass curio/china cabinet for his..chambers.
16 chairs ..many panels.
I use 4 chairs and keep 2 to the side..
One of my daughters ..may use many panels and make way better use of it.
But everywhere we moved to....
I made sure the table ..in it's square form..no leaves....sat 4..fit.
It won't matter once I am gone..I won't know..but I would hope it stays in the family.
Lucas loved hiding under all the beautiful ornate legs..he loved jumping on our bed and furniture too..LOL and we laughed..
Only Oli..has been a bit like Lucas and jumped on sofas:)
When our whole family is here..it is not at it's best this dining room style wise;)
I have my favorite people in the world around me♥
It looks fab..in it's present state..antique wise..I could get a toothbrush in all those nooks and crannies..but no..
Family wise..tablesetting..it's more a cartoon..and I need to laugh.Less now w/out high chairs and I MISS those days..
Like I will miss these.
It all ends in a few days but we are in forr a last hurrah summer weekend..This weather has been nothing short of stellar with crisp mornings and evenings and blue skies..with still lots of blooms around.
Russian Sage..zinnias..hydrangeas..roses..not many but still some roses..and sedum.
Have a nice weekend~
