I took one of my cheese platters and put together a candle centerpiece for fall. I had picked up a bag of faux pears and apple and pumpkin-shaped candles from Michaels store. Added a few cinnamon sticks and arranged them in between the candles. Of course all colors of fall🍁
Before you say oh no way cabbage😏let me tell you when you cook it with the right ingredients it is delicious😊in the fall you need the goodness of this beautiful vegetable in some salad or soup. I pulled out the crockpot and sliced half a red cabbage. Added chopped carrots, cilantro, bell pepper, celery, any type of beans, a can of chopped tomatoes, chicken broth, or beef broth. I had some chicken sausage which was more sweet than spicy so I made the soup sweet and tangy. At the very end, I mixed raw sugar and balsamic vinegar added to the pot and let it simmer before serving it. I hope you give cabbage a try this fall & winter season🥰
I love the idea of a perennial that is also low maintenance. Two great facts about ice plants that make this ground cover one of my favorites. They have plump green leaves all year, that spread easily in a well-drain soil. Need sunlight to bloom, and the vibrant blooms rise during the day and close up slowly as the sun goes down.
When you invest in one ice plant, you can be sure you can propagate them easily through your entire garden. All you need is a clipping and a shallow hole in the soil in a sunny spot. (as far as I can tell, squirrels don’t find them tasty)👍
Happy Easter 🐇
When we picked up our Christmas tree, I also picked up an arm full of clippings. I wanted to use them in decorating my mail box, the living room and the dining room. Also Adding trimmings ( Faux red berries, and pinecones) that I had saved from last year’s Christmas wreaths. I thought they would add texture, color, and dimension to the all green clippings.
I put on my garden gloves, since I was getting sap all over my hands, and started layering the branches. Included smaller branches to cover some empty spots, and added pinecones and the berries in between the greens. Later I add another layer of Christmas ball ornaments and a string of lights.
Just to see different looks, later I added poinsettia plants, my small decorative Christmas trees, and just making it colorful, bright, and sparkly I also added mercury candle holders in silver, gold, and green.
All together 5 looks for a very warm, colorful, holiday season decor. you can watch my video on how I put together everything on the fireplace mantle and my dining buffet table.

It has been a few weeks, Since I have consciously tried to drink more water. I have realized that by drinking more water I can accomplish more, and feel better. I had noticed more and more in the mornings I woke up with sore muscles, and headaches. I do suffer from migraines, but my headaches were happening more often.
I did some research and realized I don’t drink enough water during the day and dehydration can cause achy muscles, and headaches. Knowing what is causing my problem I had to start drinking more water, and for me that was a difficult adjustment to make. I have never enjoyed drinking water, and I have always depended on deluding fruit juice, drink coffee, or Iced tea when I was thirsty. So I started thinking of ways I could add flavor, naturally to plain water, and hoping, better flavor would encourage me to drink more water, as I exercise, swim, Work in the garden, and just do my daily chores.
I hope this video will be a nice easy guide to encourage you to drink more water, and enjoy a more productive day. I have already started feeling better, and that is a very good sign.☺️
Here is the link to my video, on how I add flavors to water. https://youtu.be/L0Q1o6-bQGQ
I use a combination of herbs fruits or vegetables to add flavor to my water. Before I leave my house I take my Yeti travel mug add ice, water, and a combination of herbs and maybe a slice of lemon or another citrus fruit like tangerine, and I am ready to start my day💪🏻☺️
I like having flowers in my house and most of all, flowers from my garden. Cut flowers are expensive, and usually have a short life, but having a few flowering plants, and a creative touch, can help in putting together beautiful flower arrangements. I am always so happy when I put together small vases, by arranging herbs, and blooms for every room in the house. From early spring to early summer, I pick and choose from Purple pansies, star jasmine, primrose, daisies, gardenias, dahlia, and mums in the garden. Something different every few weeks. I can’t Waite for more blooms popping their heads out this summer season, so I can enjoy fuller, and more colorful arrangements.

I pay attention to details, and respect any one that takes the time to create details in anything and everything. Small accent pieces in decorating, small plants tucked in large flower pots for color and texture, small images of birds, and trees in a painting, and small accessories added to the everyday wardrobe.
I contribute the importance of details, to the fact that they create a distinct look, a look apart from all the other homogenized, and pre packaged things! Details create a unique style, a unique look, created by subtle difference that we can call our own style.
To think of adding details such as accessories to everyday wardrobe is not a difficult task, but adding a belt, a scarf, a pair of gloves might require, a very organized closet, more time to plan, and more time to get dressed. The final look when all put together, ready for the day, is a unique style created by unique style by adding accessories for more color, layers, and texture.
I have put together a video on different stylish, and practical ways we can add scarfs to our everyday wardrobe. I hope you enjoy the video, and also subscribe to our YouTube channel. Thank you so much☺️
