National Margarita Day!!! Woo Hoo!!!

Surely many are wondering why a cold, fruity, summery drink such as the margarita is commemorated in February. The dead of winter! For some people, margarita day is more likely to be celebrated if it were June. But for those who live in New York, where the sidewalks are currently covered in dog-soiled snow that, they will understand the sort of resemblance of a foul frozen cocktail,

According to studies, Americans on average drink 185,000 margaritas per hour, making it almost a patriotic duty to imbibe. National Margarita Day might not be a real holiday, considering it’s not on Wikipedia, the decider of all reality. But plenty of people out there were delighted to have an excuse to enjoy an adult beverage after a long day at work.
I think I'll make a pitcher of them today and have a few friends over!!
Tell me, what's your favorite Margarita? Mine is the classic original with Patron tequila!!
Happy Day

The Whimsy of MacKenzie-Childs and My Favs!

All images are ©Mackenzie-Childs, LLC

This Beverage Hostess is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!
I can see "Mismosas" in it now!! Or "Lemonade"!

As most of you already know, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Mackenzie-Childs.
I have collected it since 1988, then started painting it for friends in 1991. I still collect and paint it today and never tire of it. Each piece is truly unique and sems to tell a story.
Today I am posting photos of MY FAVS! M-C has come out with some really nice products this year, and I have quite a few of them on my "wishlist". Tell me, what's on
YOUR "wishlist

And how cute are these new "Bird Tassles"?
Perfect to place anywhere in your home!
These adorable "Miniature Compotes" are the perfect vessel
to serve single servings in.
I see salads, strawberry shortcake and ice cream sundaes in these!
Oh, imagine the possibilities!

I think this new pattern will fit nicely in with my other "Taylor" pottery.
It's called "Hitchcock Field". I am not crazy about turquoise, but since
it has the black/white on it....I like it!

If you collect the Flower Market enamelware, you will want to
add a couple of these ute frames to your collection!
I mix and match the white with my CC enamelware
and the floral pattern really POPS!!

OH....and these are "MUST HAVES"!! If you entertain,
then these are a must!!! I have several of this type I have picked up
at Target, Marshalls and the like to place dips and chips in...friuts...cheeses...
and pretty much anything you can think of!
The perfect addition to your M-C collection!

This is the smaller version of the one above....too darn cute!


Cute "Pedestal Table". Perfect for your favorite plant
...perhaps an Orchid?

Love the new Courtly Check® and Stripe fabric!!
Hopefully, we'll be able to purchase yardage at some
point! Are you reading this CC?


See the gorgeous Courtly Check® furniture below using the new ticking style
and Courtly Check® signature fabric! I am Loving it!
I think this would nice on my sun porch!

Now...follow me into the garden!!

This way, please......

Now these are gorgeous!
Perfect addition to your bird collection!

For the bird lover who has many a birdhouse in their yard!
This is so cute! I want 10!!! Better get to work!

Is this not the prettiest trellis you have seen?
I think it would look lovely greeting my guest at my front door!

Okay.....while I loved the "Mrs. Powers" gate....
this "Flower Basket" one has gotten my "ATTENTION"!!

Too cute for words are these "Pot Stakers"!
Ya gotta have a few of these in your garden!!

And last, but certainly, not this FABULOUS....WONDERFUL....


Doesn't it just want to make you smile!!!
I smell a GARDEN PARTY coming on!


Well, this is the end of my Mackenzie-Childs Favs! I hope you enjoyed the tour and tell me..."What's Your fav"?

Warm Hugs,

A Valentine Give-a-Way!

Well, Ladies, it's been awhile since I have written on my blog. My life has been very hectic for the past few months, but I am ready to get back to writing on my blog as least on a weekly basis.
In celebration of

Valentine's Day

I am having give-a-way! I decided to make these in black and white as opposed to the traditional red/pink/white, so they can stay out all year long. After all, hugs and kisses should be celebrated all year long!! Each letter is 8" high and is made from chipboard and scrapbook paper and sealed with a protective coat of varnish.
Which one of you ladies will get to display these in your home? All you have to do is comment on this post to be entered. Mention this give-a-way with a link back to it on your blog for a second chance! Just be sure and let me know about the honorable mention. :)
Contest ends midnight CST on Tuesday, February 8th.

Warm Hugs,
