If you have been wondering why it has been a little quiet around the blog lately, I have had a head cold that turned into a sinus infection that has been making me dizzy and my head pound for the past week. It has drained my energy, but I am finally feeling better. While I was feeling awful, I tried to think on the bright side… at least I didn’t have the flu. :-)
While I was staying snuggled and warm with tissues and hot tea by my side I did go online to try to keep up on answering reader questions and emails. I also came upon a few interesting articles online that I found inspiring, clever, delish and one eye-opening that I think you will, too.

Did you know Amazon sells pretty furniture, decor and… well, just about everything? I like this headboard ($126.00) and have been thinking about buying it since it would be cheaper to buy it then to DIY it. I now have an Amazon Shop. I will add to it on an ongoing basis with all the great deals I find along with items I own and use myself.
I want to make these Candy Place Cards for Valentine’s Day. I clipped this photo from an issue of Martha Stewart Magazine many years ago. I think it is time I make them, even if it is just Ed and myself around the table on Valentine’s Day. I love the mix of the colors and the striped ribbon.
They are really simple to make: Cut out three-inch ovals from colorful card stock. Using a hole punch, make a hole at each end, and then neatly write your guests’ names on the ovals with black ink. Thread ribbon scraps, each about six inches long and one and one-half inches wide, through the backs of the place cards. Notch the ribbon ends, and set a card at each place setting. SWEET!
