After the holidays, I was looking for a little inspiration
from our garden. I wanted to bring some flowers inside to add some color.
A garden vignette!
Antique silver trays and garden pots with pansies
add some color to the miniature lights.
I decided to keep the lights up from the holidays.
They give the house a warm feeling.
I think I'm going to keep my
star up for awhile.
I love sparkle it gives the entryway!!
We made a Winter Crostata over the holiday.
I promised to give you the recipe.
It's a Ina Garten recipe.
I just changed the fruit to winter berries,
I bought them at the farmers market.
We also made brie in a puff pastry with stars.
I served it with pears and crackers.
I just tried a new recipe from Giada.
Grilled Salmon and Pineapple with Avocado.
Our daughter, Carly, loves her Spinach Pine Nut Pesto,
so we made that instead with it.
It was so good!!
We are so happy!
San Diego has gotten a lot of rain lately.
I love sitting next to a fire,
thinking about how beautiful our garden will look!
