I found this old plant stand and thought in its own way, it was a thing of beauty. I definitely don't consider myself shabby chic, although this stand looks very shabby chic. I do enjoy mixing old and new pieces. Matchy-matchy is out you know! I think using a few vintage accessories adds interest and a richness to one's home.

Another thing I enjoy is cookbooks. I may not try all the recipes, but I'll surely read them all. I love to watch The Barefoot Contessa. Ina Garten makes everything she does look so effortless, so of course I had to have a couple of her cookbooks. The recipes I've made so far have been a success. I highly recommend her books and recipes.

Political Science Major?

Joshua was interested in attending a townhall meeting, and fortunately there was one scheduled in Lenoir. I am very glad he is interested in the political process, and in the issues our nation is facing. Too many people are completely oblivious to issues that will directly impact their way of life, and as the saying goes, "Evil prevails when good does nothing".
