Food Parties

Just a short note right now as I am off to an Epicure spice party this afternoon. Have you ever been? It is like a Pampered Chef one (great cooking tools and best of all food!) but this is using spices in food. It is the fall one so lots of spices for Christmas baking. Dried cranberries, cherries, Belgian chocolate, ginger, spices for stuffing, pumpkin spices - all name just a few. It will be making a dent in my wallet - lots of taste testing ...hmmmm...delicious. Just perfect for this dull rainy Sunday.

Wanted to tell you that Lana of Honeysuckle Lane is having a blog giveaway so get yourself over there and post your ideas on the August 19th post which ends at midnight. She makes the most wonderful pieces. To own one of her artistic pieces is a must. Check out her cards on her website.

When I get back I will tell you about this new little rug that the lovely postman delivered to my door on Friday!

all for now....


I had a fun time at the Victorian Epicure party. I bought more than I should have and the fragrance of fresh spices and herbs will be filling the upcoming baking months. There was a bit of everything to sample. A lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

The pic above is my treasure that I bought - a Deanne Fitzpatrick original. I cannot afford her larger rugs but then she recently did a series of ladies (within my budget) and I asked her to pick out one for me and this is what she sent. Isn't she a grand madame? All decked out in her red dress and pocketbook getting ready to go to town from a little seaside Maritime village - off to visit the big city. Anyway that is how I see the rug and each person can have a different story which is the beauty of art.
