Happy Thanksgiving and a last minute dessert.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and may their be happy memoirs made as we gather with family and friends . Take time to be grateful for the smallest of things and see all the ways God has moved in your life as we sit together, cook together and just be together.

Of course, I must leave you with the cutest dessert I found at Joann Fabric and Craft Store, Istagram page. Aren't these the cutest donut holes disguised as acorns. 

There is no need to make these donut holes from scratch, so to make life in the kitchen easy in your Thanksgiving kitchen, you can pick these up at your local supermarket or bakery. Then work your magic with a frosting and sprinkles and for a stem a pretzel stick. Ta daa......

I'm sure everyone would love these as an appetizer or dessert so be sure to engage your tweens and teens with this dessert project and keep them flowing throughout today.

Cheers to everyone and be safe.

Love Lisa

Giving Thanks Done Right.

With the season in full swing and the anticipation of Thanksgiving in the air, what are you, my Lovelies up to. I recently poured over the Rue Magazine Holiday Issue now online. My inspiration today is taken from the festive shoot of Ryder Sloan Events at the Stable Cafe.

I adore the wooden bistro chairs and those hand craved peacocks. The colors are fresh and warm, with touches of gold and copper goblets and pine cones to give this setting an effortless rustic feel.

Details are everything and the serving platter above is genius, in keeping the rustic theme. I hope everyone is inspired, especially those of you who will be hosting Thanksgiving this year. Take care everyone and have a Happy Thanksgiving.

The Girl on the Train Movie is coming and it's down right creepy

Imagine you are commuting to work every day past the house where your ex husband lives with his new wife, a.k.a. the woman he left you for. 
Sounds pretty awful, right? But I can totally relate as fate would have it. Maybe you have gone through something similar, maybe not. But going on a violent rampage has crossed my mind more than a few times. The Girl on the Train  is based on the same bestselling book, starring Emily Blunt and will be in theatres this fall. I suggest if you are in a place where you are coping with a divorce/separation, this is not the movie for you.

See what I mean, suspense and creepiness all rolled into one.
Happy Weekend my Lovelies.

monday and lovely tablesettings

Greeting my Lovelies, and how was the weekend? I was snuggled up with my books and watching reruns of Downton Abbey. I have been taking it easy as I have been sick the last two weeks trying to get rid of the flu and build up immune system. So it's good to be back and blogging again.

a light dinner

Hello everyone,  here is one of my fave recipes that I love. What is there to not like about Bruchetta, (Italian pronunciation bru╦łsketta.) an easy to make antipasto (starter dish) recipe that has it's origins in Italy. Originally grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with oliveoil and salt. Today there are numerous variaitions consisting of toppings of tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, or cheese.

Happy Thanksgiving and a last minute dessert.
