Recipe Time:Soups On!


I got the meat and bones of this recipe from my Sista Alethia. She prepared this soup for one of our book club meetings and it was off the chain! I text-ed her on Sat asking for the recipe and she graciously sent it to me. Here is the thing the recipe was like one my Mom would have given me "Girl put a little of this with that and some of this and BOOM!"   **crickets**  I'm kidding sorta, I got the gist of it and my recipe below is how I put it down but I think anyone can tweak this into many, many different soups! So here it is and Thanks again Alethia!

Stripes, Stripes and more Stripes, OH MY!

So now that my steps were completed I decided to see what other stripes designs everyone else had going on in their spaces and this is what I found. Striped stairs, floors and ceilings, more for a fun environment, don't you think? Do you like stripes? do you have any stripes? Holla at a Sista and let me know, send a pic to share if you'd like, the more stripes the merrier!

Whites stairs, meet blue stripes

Well back to work in the family room. I wiped the dirt off my white stairs to get them ready for the stripes. They were a little dingy still but that's OK, I'll call it the weathered look. Now a taping we will go, a taping we will go ,high hooooo.....oh shoot my back just reminded me why I was putting this off!

If you've seen my blog you know that I am a picture whore, yes I said it! My pictures have been disappearing from the blog and I have to replace them, but I can't replace them all. I am trying but more keep disappearing and they do not have a solution on Blogger. So sorry if you go to visit a page and the images are no longer there. If you can drop a comment to let me know I will be ale to replace them hopefully. I am a little tired I may change my host because it's too time consuming to keep replacing my photos. *sigh

Junk in The Trunk Tuesday: The Real Deal in Arizona

Next stop Arizona for more junk and more junk. If your in this area this could be the fix for your junk sweet tooth!  You know all those pictures you see in the magazines, advertisements and Blogs? Well that's the kinda stuff you see when you look at the pictures from the "Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market" These ladies have found a niche to getting all  those one of a kind items that you dream about all in one spot! My biggest problem is that I live in Pennsylvania and this Market happens in Arizona, I trying to figure out how I'm gonna make this happen. I got Texas on my Bucket list now I'm gonna go ahead and Arizona as well.  Please click your way over to see those fab pictures and to get more info.

Ohhhhh, so that's Jimi Hendrix!

           This is all that was left last week of a Jimi Hendrix home last week. It's gone, by order of the city of Renton.
Jimi Hendrix's childhood home in Seattle was demolished . 
"The demolition crew has been working at a fast pace, and the tiny, 
900-square-foot house where Jimi Hendrix lived from ages 10 to 13, and
 first showed his love for music, was down to its shell Monday March 29, 2009." HERE

Jimi Hendrix moved in to the top floor apartment of 23 Brook Street, 
located in the Mayfair section of London, in 1968.

It doesn't matter if it's black or white or white or black.

When I was a little girl in Florida, I remember my Uncle Bro had a big house that I thought was a mansion. In this house he had a room with all white furniture, this was not a room we sat in it was a room that you walked through and kept it trucking! When my kids were older I too had a white living room..OK mine had a  little black in it but it was 98% white.  Black & White are opposing colors that always lend drama to an interior, at least I think so. Here are my pics on Black & White designs that make the grade.  Obviously these are not family friendly rooms  and you may not even want some adults in them but aren't they pretty?

Hey your chairs don't match....nothing personal but does it really matter anyway?

MIX-AND-MATCH-CHAIRS?  I don't know bout that. I have always been a match-y, match-y person so this is a novel ideal for me. I'm not sure I have the guts but these pictures are inspiring me to go head and give it a shot.

Home offices with Style

I have a home office in my bedroom and some people may not like that. I do because I hate laptops and I use a PC that is mine, mine, mine. I have to have this in a separate room from my kids computers so they do not use mine. So I took the corner in my room and added a desk to make my own little bedroom office if you will.  I now present to you my bedroom office.

This is where all the magic happens...sometimes anyway,my bedroom

OK so I had theses lamp shades and one ripped and I was 
going to put new fabric on them . When I took off all the old fabric
 I said this looks kinda cool like this, so there you have it. #Iamwinning
(I missed that little dust on my headboard, what you think my 
room is always this clean? Are you cray cray?)
