“Cooking may be as much as a means of self expression as any of the arts.” Fannie Farmer
What can I say? I am hooked on the home arts. Ever since I was a young girl I have been cooking, decorating & gardening.
My mother used to entertain a lot, and I think, it all began there. She was an obsessive decorator and room changer! So naturally I had a gene for this. Playing house is not only my passion, it is my profession!
I guess room decorating started very young, I remember going to the hardware store with my mother selecting the paint. I was always moving rooms around with siblings and being a little more inspired than my friends about the process. When I was 12 years old, I made 30 egg rolls for a bridal shower my mother gave. The response was so positive, I think I learned then that the way to people’s hearts was through food! About the same time I created a rock garden on a steep hill (about 14 rocks) before my father came home from work. This was later a highlight of the hill and he expanded it into a great focal point over the years.
So you see , this is really who I have always been! I hope you will come along with me as I learn the ins and outs of the art of posting. Today my practice is with the font, layout and technical aspect of it all! Here goes!
