But I pretended to be one on New Year's Eve.
I made this little chinese crystal and freshwater pearl tiara to wear to dinner with friends. I think it would be fun to make these for brides this year.
The lady in the powder room is wearing it now. She reminds me to try to be more like a lady/princess in the new year.
We had a couple friends over on January 1 for dinner.
It was a last minute thing so I had to throw together the
table and the menu with what we had in the house.
I went with a simple black and white table setting.
Ikea table runners and some toile chargers I've had for years.
pear blue cheese and walnut salad
roasted rosemary baby red potatoes
marinaded pork loin
sorbet with fresh berries
Dinner with friends was the perfect way to start off the year!
On a completely different note
I've been pretty sick for the past few days and I've spent a lot of time thinking about my blog--whether to keep doing it or call it quits. I've decided I'm going to try to ramp it up with more frequent posts. If that doesn't work I'll throw in the towel.
So, if you're out there reading this, consider becoming a follower by clicking on the "follow" button. I just recently put it back up. It would make me feel so much better to know that I've got more than just three regular readers :)
I'd love to hear what kind of posts you would like to see more of.
Also, don't be afraid to leave a comment, it really makes my day when I get them!
