About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Get Thee to a Borders

I saw this at Borders today. I think we all need a subscription! Has any one read it?


I found this book at the library. You will all want a copy of this, too.:) Nell Hill's Entertaining in Style. This lovely book has glorious pictures, themed party ideas (Mardi Gras, Summer Evening, After Shopping Chocolate Buffet, etc.) complete with menus...
Simple, yet elegant...
A tiny present in a nest, under glass...

Sparkling Christmas...

Here's that Chocolate Buffet I was talking about...:)

It's to be enjoyed after Christmas shopping with friends. Love. This.

And Halloween! A papier mache pumpkin full of treats!

Look at the Kids' Table...

This is the grown-ups table...

How about a Summer Evening Dinner under the Stars...

This toile "tablecloth" is actually a duvet cover! I seem to remember some lovely ones at T.J. Maxx that would work perfectly.

Tomatoes in an urn. Perfect for summer!

Dreamy...

What a fun way to display tea cups! I looooove this...

Mary Carol Garrity is the author/decorator and has stores in Kansas. Who is up for a field trip?
